Sony is not an "old" manufacturer, they bought Minolta.

Yes they did, but they were a camera manufactures long before they did
that in 2006.

For example, as a pioneer in the digital photography world, in 1997 Sony
marketed the MVC-FD5 and MVC-FD7, the first ever digital cameras using a
standard floppy disc as the storage.

Actually the Sony camera division goes back further. They sold a CCD
video camera back in 1981. That year also saw a still version called
the Mavica. really it was the same technology just packed in what
looked like a camera body with interchangeable lenses. Yes it took
still images digitally, 570 x 490 pixels on a 10mm x 12mm chip.

If TV vidcon counts as "camera" then Sony was selling these in the usa
back in 1974. Actually their video cameras go back even further.
The Sony CVC-2000 dating from 1965 was the first domestic video camera.
