    hmm.. not a great report, I will wait for BM to say anything on the matter before I believe any reports.

        Not to sound like a dick, but when posting this sort of stuff could people give a few more details, ie; the name of the shop? Some shops have good reputations for information and service, some bad. It would be good to know where this source has come from, to then be able to think about whether or not they know what they are talking about.

          No need to kill any messengers here...either it ships this month or it doesn't. I know I would feel much more confident if a group of "prominent bloggers" had fully functional cameras (minus NDAs) and were cranking out libraries of footage for all of us to see. But things are what they are...keep shooting with the camera you're making money with now and see what happens.

            On the plus side, they have a camera that's finished enough to be in testing with Apple and Intel. That's a positive, surely?

              Fire! Fire! Everyone run for the exits! ;-)

              Not meaning to shoot any messengers. I can understand why "flatlander" might be upset by news allegedly reported by a "shop". But I'm not overly concerned about ruffling the feathers of an anonymous source yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater, so to speak.

              If this "shop" is an authorized BMD dealer then they are likely breaking NDA by announcing anything about the BMCC other than what BMD has publicly announced. In which case said "shop" may be in deep doo doo, and as a result may indeed be waiting a long time for cameras ...

              Meantime, we keep shooting with the cameras we have. Don't get me wrong, I really really hope to be shooting with my BMCC well before the end of August. But my GH2, and my client's FS100, etc. will have to do in the meantime. Could be a lot worse.

                    August becomes 2013
                    2013 becomes 2014
                    And before you know it, BMC pulls a Red on us and we'll be presented with a 10k$ 8k system instead!

                    Just kidding, just kidding

                            Great minds think alike, apparently. ;-)

                              How about some NDA-free prototypes out on the streets so reviewers who want to obsess over pixels, noise and shallow DOF can do so? I like at least 10 people telling me what I should think and why. When it's only one person, I get nervous.
