I don't mean to be a doom mongre but I heard a rumour today that the production delay has been upped from one month to 3 months!
Please say this isn't true...
I don't believe any such rumors until someone from RED confirms. AFAIK, Big Jon's schedule should still hold. And it does reflect a several week delay from what everyone was expecting last month.
They are shipping cameras, at a slow and steady pace it seems. I see a slow trickle of people reporting they have received theirs. Mine is in the hands of FedEx right now, should have it in a couple days (curses to the weekend).
Well my reservation 3928 was scheduled for early August, now it's November, I make that 3 months. It can't go back any further surely? And the EVFs? One possible saving grace is that at least there are a good few out there for rental now.
That means you ordered just before I added 2...
You'll have a ball!
I hadn't realized those later numbers had been pushed back that far. Hopefully RED is right and they will be able to beat this new schedule. They should be right about shipping EVF's to the low 400's now, so they're picking up, but it'll still take a while until they're shipping real-time with cameras.
Many of us have been waiting more than one year to get our first cameras, and delays have occurred in many occasions; I understand that and do accept can happen.
What I would like is to know about any delays in the production schedule, many people are organizing shootings counting with the extimated time of delivery we have been told at the moment of purchase.
If there will be delays, there will be some productions that are going to change the shooting schedule, if these start in 2008......
Let's hope are just rumours....
