    The camers is bigger and heavier than I expected, it feels more like an update of the original BM than of the original pocket. The menus and controls are BEAUTIFUL. I haven't had time to check any footage yet.

    Sorry if it caused you bad feelings...

    I preordered at warp9 and it seems I was first in line with my August preorder

    Small dealers are the way to go if you want it soon

    Just got an email from my dealer...she said BM told her that they are confident they will clear backorders within 4-6 weeks. Not sure if that's just here in Oz or worldwide.

    Hot Rod's been getting one camera a week. I won't get mine until almost December at this rate. Someone on the Facebook group earlier today said BM told them a large shipment is on its way out. We'll see.

    Same here. Irritated doesn't even begin to describe it. Cameras should be getting shipped to the places with the longest pre-order lists first. That should be the priority. It simply shouldn't be possible for anyone who ordered recently -- from anywhere -- to receive theirs before the people who pre-ordered in April. This is insane.

    While BM should have had production going long before release to avoid this it sounds like a lot of this is a failing of suppliers to order quick to meet demand, Lemac supplier got in quick with a good order at NAB and they were one of the first to deliver on their preorders. Been quoted a 4-6 week wait from them.

    Indeed, some resellers may have put preorders without having the actual customers, if they anticipated high demand and feared slow supply. And some may have got the client preorders but delayed tellling BM about it because that means working (!) or even paying in advance. It's not necessarily BlackMagic's fault if I got my camera soon with a late preorder.

    In any case: it was common knowledge in this forum that going with a small official dealer was the best way to get your camera fast. I did that, and it worked.

    Well in that case only a couple of stores would get them, and does not seem fair either. Like b&h and adorma would get hundreds, while smaller stores would get none. + All cameras would be shipped to the US as the most orders are on b&h and adorama. And europe would get none. But I get your frustration though. If I were you I would cancel your pre-order and order in a small store with as good as none pre-orders. I am buying a pocket 4K tonight I think, store owner thinks he can supply one within 2 weeks.

    I called B&H just now, and they said they are getting a shipment in at the end of this month. They didn't know how many were coming, but she was pretty confident that I would be included in that shipment. I ordered on the 10th of April.

    As stated before, Blackmagic aren't the ones who decide how many cameras are sent to what reseller. The only thing to get on them is that they made it seem like they'd have more cameras shipped than what is out there so far, but it's not the end of the world, really 1st-world problems more than anything..we'll get our cameras eventually. Hope there is truth to these comments that much larger shipments will be going out in the next week or two.
