  • Change in shipping dates

    I just got an email from one of the biggest Blackmagic dealers in Canada, of which I'm first one their list, saying that the shipping date has now been pushed to August or September

    Has anyone else heard the same?

    Haven't heard anything one way or the other... As cool as it'd be to get it earlier, I really want the product to be rock-solid. If that means an extra couple of months, I'm okay with that.

    As long as it doesn't turn into Red Scarlet redux.

        Not to worry. They'd have to delay the camera by another three years or so to even get near that mark.

        And I'm with you. If it means a more solid model on release a small delay is just fine.

          Means more time to save money and get the rest of the pieces needed inline. Of course, I said that before too...

            Maybe they need some extra time for that M43 mount...

                  so the BMC isn't affordable, and isn't RAW?
                  Actually - just to be...the bad guy here - BMC ha uncompressed raw recording. Scarlet has compressed raw.

                    If I get an email today I'll post. It's surprisingly refreshing to see people so patient!

                    To add, I did get an email from CVP not long back about it being pushed to the end of July. but that's all.

                      But is it a global change (BMD is changing the date of release)
                      or a change at specific dealers (someone get the cam later)
                      or a change in specific users? (later pre-orders get the cam later)

                        If you're talking about CVPs push back, I'm not sure if it's Global, Here's the email.

                        "After speaking with our supplier, they have informed us that the lead time on this order is late July. I will be in touch to take the final payment nearer to the dispatch date."

                          yes, about the CVP push back.
                          Thanks for the email...
                          as much as I will patiently wait - what else could we do? -, I'd be really happy if it would be released in July.

                            I would have guessed with only 2 months to go until release, that there would be several prototypes out there making demo footage like mad. So no, I wouldn't be surprised to see the release date pushed back...disappointed, yes but not surprised.

                              Seeing as I'm selling my A cam to buy the BMC I hope they ship on time. Sucks to only have one camera after being used to two. Having said that I really want it as bug free as possible and if I must wait for that so be it. Of course only a small delay is cool if we get into the winter months that will start to frustrate...
