    In general, if it's Thunderbolt 3, that's what they call it. If they just say USB Type-C (or USB-C), and they don't say anything else, it's almost always USB 3.1 Gen 1, which is the same as USB 3.0, or 5Gbps. I hate the way the USB Consortium named things after 3.0, but it's what we're stuck with. And don't get me started on the cables; you can have a lot of trouble finding a cable rated for the right thing, and can wind up doing physical damage to your equipment if you don't get it right.

      I googled that and its way too expensive at half the price of the actual camera. Though I did discover a few DIY tutorials for Cfast to SSD contraptions, and they are pretty much exactly I was planning to do

            Nope, but then again, it's also still August and there's no official word on any delays either.

            Other manufacturers have released sample footage on the day of the camera release for instance... Maybe BMD changed their approach and is going for that too.

              The last couple of BMD cameras didn't have any before launch, either, right?

              One sign of imminent release may be that Resolve 15 is now out of beta.

                  • My suppliers theory on shipping:

                    “...guessing will be shown at IBC in Amsterdam and then should ship after that.”

                    Seems pretty solid to me. Looking at the back end of September!

                      If it's on the 28th, then I'm demanding BM send me one as a Birthday present!

                                Just bolt it all to the camera. No need for cage or rails.
                                About the battery one: Oh great! The battery door is removable. I was worried it was not removable like the Pocket. This means third parties could probably make a battery door with a cable hatch, allowing us to use dummy batteries properly.

                                I also like the SSD adapter, though ideally you'd want one that's designed with multiple SSD sizes, like the water resistant G-Drive Apple is selling. I'd also want some kind of shoe on it, so you can mount your mic on it. And in black of course.
