Sony begins shipping NEX-7 after Thai floods

Sony has issued a statement that it will begin shipping the NEX-7 in limited numbers this month. Flooding in Thailand had forced the company to shut down production lines and delay the launch of its new flagship mirror less camera. Sony's announcement that it will ship the device to customers who pre-ordered it before the end of the year confirms reports that it had resumed production in mid-November.

"Sony USA is happy to announce that limited quantities of the new NEX-7 camera will begin shipping to pre-order customers this month. Overall production capacity remains restrained as a result of the recent floods in Thailand, but we've made significant progress recovering our manufacturing capabilities and supply chain. We're continuing to aggressively pursue all efforts to restore full production capability of the NEX-7 and other affected models," reads a statement issued by the company.

The NEX-7 incorporates a 24.3-megapixel sensor and a 1024x768 OLED-based eyepiece. Sony had planned to begin shipping the compact interchangeable lens camera in November. It will retail for $1,349.
