    I just saw a tweet from BMD: https://twitter.com/Blackmagic_News/...34256287727616

    "New Blackmagic Video Assist now shipping! Adds high resolution professional monitoring and recording for any SDI or HDMI camera! Only $495"

    FYI.

    It seems there isn’t anything added beyond what was confirmed at the trade shows and so on. Perhaps if they can catch their breath, BMD may add a few goodies in firmware updates later. Still I suspect this will be a popular item as is.

    Price point is pretty great for what it offers. If they add waveform, it will be unstoppable and will sell like crazy.

    I'm in the same boat as you. Ordered mine on the initial day of release (July 31st) from CVP and all they've told me is "delivery is expected very soon". A waiting game I predict...

    The first round shipped out, have arrived ar their destination, I got mine! Great little monitor.
    Only issue is HDMI connection blac outs when going from play, and back to record, signal seems like it is list. Unplugging HDMI cable and repluging it in resets the connection, kind of a pain!

    Found a new HDMI cable, perfect for connecting the Micro Studio 4K or Micro Cinema, or other HDMI connection camera to a Video Assist or other EVF/Monitor. Mint has a nice small flexible cable, .5 meters (1.6-feet) and locking ends. The thin cable does not add any leverage of the monitor, and is out of the way, especially using a Zacuto 90-degree adapter on the Camera, routes the cable forward out of the way.

    B&H has it in stock. Here is the B&H description: "The 1.6' 4K High-Speed Round HDMI Cable from Zigen allows you to transmit high-resolution digital audio and video on a single cable. This cable features male HDMI grip connectors on each end, and can support up to 12 lb of tension.".
