SOUNDS LIKE GOOD NEWS FOR SHIPPING!!!

PostTue Nov 20, 2012 3:35 pm

Hey guys, I had a conversation with a B&H Rep today and they forwarded me the email they received from Black Magic Design that stated they are confident they will ship in the triple digits before the end of the year and they are confident they will fill all of B&H's orders plus have some left over before the year is out.
This is simply what he forwarded me. I have no way of verifying but I doubt the rep would lie to me. He had nothing to gain. :) This news made me pretty happy. :) Hopefully Grant will come on and confirm this soon.
Have a great day!!!

B&H has 800 back orders? Wow! I wonder if BMD will ship all to B&H before they move down the list to the next reseller (i.e., Omega in Austin)? I sure wish someone would shed a little light on how this US distribution might work when someone other than B&H and G&G begins to get BMCs.

from the looks of the statement, its from the distributor to B&H, so I would say that its saying that there are over 800 US pre-orders, rather than them all being just for B&H.

Tom - I disagree, but I could be wrong. The snapshot of the conversation indicates that the B&H rep was quoting B&H's buyer. It appears to me that, assuming the B&H buyer is a B&H employee, that the "800" refers to B&H pre-orders.

Regardless, having a late pre-order at B&H, this thread gives me hope that B&H receives enough stock by the end of the year. In this case, I might just believe that there is a Santa Clause.

The chat log reads: "our BKO's" so I think that means BnH's BKO's/Back Orders. It's not the first time that I've heard that BnH has around 800 back orders.

I'm pretty sure it means 800 for just B&H, considering the UK is much smaller and CVP has at least 300 back orders I would think 800 is about right for B&H.

The shipping-hornyness on this forum is crazy.
You all need therapy!!

LOL

We will all get it by end Q1 2013, still 5 years before canon users get it, so just lean back and relax.

Well.. let's hope this is true and not some reseller rep who's just repeating rumours or doesn't know what he's talking about. Looking forward to Grant's next official update. CVP also needs some Christmas love :D

Longest wait ever. I've learnt so much about cinematography just in the time waiting for this camera!

Which is probably a good thing in the end. Hit the ground running so to speak.

My reseller called me a few minutes ago and they said they just wrapped a meeting with BMD distributors and it seems like the camera could be available in Turkey something like February or March. I hoped to see the camera in my hands until end of January, so I am a bit sad now as you can guess because I just ordered SSDs and batteries from US and they will be delivered to me 1st or 2nd December.

Hey Martin! I ordered from AF Marcotec as I figured they are big enough to (hopefully) receive a considerably large enough shipment or something... dunno.. "Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt" ;)

Where did you order? Or lets PM.. maybe better...

Have an order placed at Video4, Bergen Norway. Still wondering how peripheral Norwegian customers BlackMagic are perceived in relation to the me-first-I-am-so-darned-important-in-L.A.
Conclusion: still waiting for Godot ... I mean the BMCC. Would like to be able to write off the purchase from my company balance account before 31/12.

Hey guys,

My reseller is Videodata in Hamburg. I contacted them again today and they responded imediately. So maybe they didn´t get my earlier enquiries. They told me, they hope to ship in january. We will see and hope the best.

Yes, i get a mail from them.
After talking with the supplier there are no news, more than the news that we have here in the website.

I don´t know if the cameras go from BM to an european supplier or from BM to the country supplier directly, but i think (or hope) if it´s a country supplier, the first ship to germany could be delivered equitably to all the shops (as i said, i hope), not just one and the others must wait until....

But being positive, i think that germany will get next month... my dog wants some frames in the snow

@murat - sorry to hear mate! :(
thanks soeren.. I still have some hope about MFT mount.. I will have a meeting with the reseller on monday and I try to convince them to be able to get some cameras with quantities because It's not just simply enough to say they save more quotas for other countries, I shouldn't be that easier and also we didn't talk that much on the phone.. I believe that face to face conversations are always better than anything else.. :)

no offense, but what is your point? that canon is more responsible? they've been in this business for much longer than bmd. i remember back in late 90s they had lots of trouble delivering the F5 on time!

whatever the case, i don't know why ANYONE would pay $6.5k + for heavily compressed a 4-2-0 color space @ 24mbps. in that case, just get the gh2 with the 176mbit hack. but if it had to be canon, i think the 1dx seems smarter.

No point...just a statement of fact. I'm holding out for my BMC but this is a bit painful. If the C100 was $4500 instead of $6500, I would probably buy a Hyperdeck and be done with this shipping horneyness.
