How Sony Mirrorless Cameras Are Made


Want to see what goes on inside Sony’s main factory for digital cameras and lenses? Here’s a 4-minute video that shows how the Sony a7R II is assembled, tested, and boxed up at the Sony Digital Imaging factory in Chunburi, Thailand.

Shutterbug shot the footage after visiting the factory, which is located about an hour away from Bangkok and “serves as the primary manufacturing and production site for ALL Sony digital cameras and lenses globally,” Sony tells PetaPixel.

“While we were not permitted to shoot photos or video in most of the factory, Sony did allow us to record the below clip of factory workers meticulously assembling, testing and boxing up Sony A7R II ($3,000) cameras,” Shutterbug writes. It reports that about 800 finished boxes containing two Sony a7R II camera kits per box (~1,600 camera kits) are produced at the site every day.
