anyone get the new BM pocket cam yet?

According to another post, these cams were being shipped last week and people should have them by now. Does anyone have one yet? Is there any new footage that we can see and download that is the original size?

Can you reference the specific post? I know BM has recently started shipping the MTF mount Cinema Camera, but not the Pocket Camera. I've had my order in since middle May, and haven't received anything yet.

Re: anyone get the new BM pocket cam yet?

I can't find that post now?? very strange. I wonder if it was pulled down or on another forum. I recall the topic being about a release date and I think a woman named Christine replied saying BM was shipping the next day and people should start getting their cam next week. it's been over a week. I read somewhere earlier this morning. Or, maybe I am wrong and misunderstood if they were talking about a different BM camera.

I pre-ordered it and I was told that I will get it in August.

My reseller originally told me June (when I placed the order) and now he's saying July, 'we hope'.

Re: anyone get the new BM pocket cam yet?

Ha ha, yes indeed; good point; no he didnít. Iím not holding my breath but rather getting on with it with cameras I already have (despite the horrible weather here right now). July, even August is OK. Not a lot of money involved but I probably should have been smart, like you, and waited until production model footage is available.

I noticed a short while ago that B&H has changed their "expected availability" to August 25th on their website (for both the Pocket and 4k cams).

We are still expecting cameras to ship by the end of July, so please don't read this B&H update as an official camera delay. Dealers are free to post any availability date they are comfortable with on their site.

Could it be the dealers are feeling uncomfortable with any deliverdate bmc promises, why would that be? :)

I sure hope they deliver as promised so we finally can talk about the footage the camera produces instead of talking about getting the camera and when, that's about the only thing I see talking about when it comes to a bmc camera.

Agreed!

The footage thst John Brawley has been able/allowed to release has definitely wet my appetite for sure. I know he's a busy guy. But I sure wish BM would allow a few others to shoot and release some footage. Also I'd love to see some of the "compressed RAW" footage, and I'd love to be able to download some sample footage and play around with it myself.
