B&H Back order notification BMPCC

PostFri Aug 23, 2013 12:34 pm

Hi all:
Just to give anyone who ordered the BMPCC from B&H an update, I just received another back order on my camera. I ordered mine on the 9th in the morning. I will post the minute I'm notified from B&H.

If you placed your order on 4/9/13 I would not think you'd see a change in your order for a while unless they are fulfilling orders without any order. If you missed the first day of announcement at b&h you could easily be the 200 - 500th order in the back log. Hopefully not but thats normally how it is with b&h. My .2

B&H give no information out on pre-orders.

I ordered on the 8th April within an hour of the BMPCC going on their website.

But I do think you are better with a smaller retailer - I hear B&H received over a 1,000 orders on the first day!!

Actually B&H gives back order information about every 3 weeks to me as they did when I ordered my BMCC back in August of last year.

I am told B&H do not share order information with their sales people. Meaning there is not wait list or order information.

I spoke with them today. They seem annoyed at the BMPCC situation. I think the 1,000 orders on day one may have been exaggerated - did not sound like it though. I was warned not to expect deliverty from the first batch even though I ordered morning of 8th April....

Just received a shipping notice from B&H that my BMPCC is on its way. I preordered the camera on the 8th late in the day.

Can you be specific as to what late in the day means?
Was it before or after 3pm eastern time?
Thanks
Eli.

I placed the order around 3pm Eastern time, so I clearly wasn't early in the queue. I did speak with a B&H representative live today just to verify the fact they were shipping it out today and he confirmed, so I would assume that orders placed before 3pm on the 8th are probably shipping as well.

I ordered at 2:34pm eastern time on the 8th, and my order status is listed as "in stock, order sent to warehouse."

I definitely haven't received a shipping email. Maybe they aren't shipping them out in chronological order? :?
