I am just seeing how many people here pre ordered the BMC camera.

I am still waiting for the D800, One day it may come.

But I think I will have the BMC in mh hands before then.


Just say yes so we can get a running tally of units sold.

Yes, from my local dealer in NH.

I convinced him to order this cam, he is getting a demo and a number for selling.

I think this camera is the start of a whole new bunch of cameras, the Digital Bolex is another one. I plan to get that one as well.

I love the fresh air approach, new boutique manufacturers. And I want to support this movement.

I will be making rigs for this cam as soon as I get it.

I pre-ordered mine from markertek. I should be fairly high on the list because I ordered over the phone before they had it on their website.

Hi Olof, which dealer in NH is carrying them? I'm also based in NH and would love to check it out prior to purchasing one later in the year!

I pre-ordered from Safe Harbor Computers which is not listed in authorized resellers. Is there any disadvantage to order from a non-authorized reseller?

They may not get in on the first batch.. I am only speculating though.

Well, if they're not an authorized reseller, that means they have no relationship to BlackMagic, so they couldn't actually order the product from them... they might have to rely on trying to buy them from some authorized reseller, and yeah, that would likely mean a higher price and/or longer wait.

You might want to check though, by asking BlackMagic directly if SafeHarbor is an authorized reseller (or if they will be, by the time the BMC ships; there may be some dealers out there who are now initiating the process to become BlackMagic dealers specifically because they want to carry the BMC).

I just had an online chat with a representative from Safe Harbor Computers. It was my fault not to find them on the authorized dealers list. Anyways, here's what I found.

kalvin says:
Are you getting the first batch of the camera when it is released?
Marc says:
Yes we placed our initial pre-order from the master distributor immediately after we were able to.
kalvin says:
May I ask you how many orders you've placed ?
Marc says:
We currently have more orders placed through BMD than we have customers with pre-orders.
Marc says:
That being said, if you've placed your pre-order with us, you are currently guaranteed to be included in the first shipment.

AccessAV in Concord they sell a lot of BM stuff. I am in the Mt Washington Valley, contact me if you are close by, or call Kevin or Brad at AccessAVNH.com. They also got me one of the first AF100's when they came out.

I just pre-ordered to get in line. I still have to test workflows and such, and will be keeping an eye on developments the next couple of months. I'm 95% sure I will get it but it's nice to have the option to cancel if it isn't going to work for me.

I'm from Barcelona, here is just one seller masquevideo, they have 25 pre-orders and the guy who takes care about the pre order tell me that blackmagic guys say that only in Europe they have around 1500 preorders, before I preorder he advices me that they can't asure to have the camera for july and they will be happy if they get 10 in the first ship. Blackmagic guys also tell that they have they factories working on the other products to put them full time on BMC when time arrives.

My order is in with Omega Broadcast Groupwhere (8th in line). As of 6/10, this is what they told me about quantities:

"While no one at this time (including Blackmagic) knows how many cameras will ship out on the first shipment cycle –I do know that all dealers will get an equal number of cameras initially regardless of how many they have on backorder. In other words, if we receive 2 cameras on our opening order – all the big online retailers will also only be receiving 2 cameras."

Also, I noticed some of you have pre-orders with B&H. I've been a weekly customer of them for many years now, and I hope those of you who have pre-ordered from them have better luck with this camera launch than I did back when the NEX-FS100 came out. I had originally ordered the FS100 from them early on, then when the release date came around they were behind by 2 weeks. I canceled my order with them and went with a smaller retailer that had the camera in stock.

Also, I’d recommend that you do not buy any SSD until BMD releases the official compatibility list. While we can be 99% sure that a few SSDs that we’ve seen in photos will work with it, you’ll save money (and headache) if you wait till we are be 100% sure.

Yes, the day it was available for pre-order. Markertek, because they had it for $ less than B&H.

FWIW, I just paid off my camera with Omega Broadcast Group. It was super easy and the staff is cool. Interestingly enough, they usually have good packages they put together and may have some soon for this system, so if you are still looking for a pre-order, it's a great place although I don't know how high up the food chain they are.
