So I emailed customer support and asked for an unofficial estimate of when they think they'll be able to ship the 4.6k Ursa Minis and I got a reply pretty quickly:
Thank you for contacting us. The URSA Mini 4K's started shipping last week in limited numbers, my guess (and this is only a best guess and not an official statement by Blackmagic Design) would be that the URSA Mini 4.6K cameras start shipping in about 4-6 weeks. It will take a few weeks to clear out the back order for the camera so if you haven't already pre ordered, it may mean that it would be sometime in January before resellers have them in stock."
Januari wouldnt be that bad..I was already thinking it would be feb./april. Altho Im not sure if they will really start shipping in 4 weeks from now, because they have send test versions of the 4.6k to some people that were not allowed to share footage..meaning they let some test the camera, make notes and then send the 4.6k back to them. So if they by now start looking at the notes it would mean they will tweak the sensor some more..meaning..I dont think they will have them ready to send them out in 4 weeks from now..the fact we havent seen any testfootage tells me the sensor is not done yet..Hope Im wrong ofcourse:-)
Okay. Of course I'd rather see footage, and I'm sure he's going to shoot something when he gets his gear assembled, but he's waiting on some items himself!
