Re: Hate to say it's true

To provide some perspective; I don't doubt that Sony found the failure rate on cameras unacceptable. The norm in mass production is to discuss failure rates in PPM, or parts per million. If the failure rate starts inching into double digit PPM it's generally a disaster, and even single digit PPM failures added by air transport is too costly to carry when it can be avoided. Add to that the saved shipping cost (albeit offset by slower time to market) and the choice of transportation is clear.

In other words, if 1-5 dead pixels occur per million cameras shipped, that would be enough to justify the measure of ceasing air transport for mass shipment. And frankly, that chance of getting a dead pixel is one I'm prepared to take.
