They are almost here! Getting mine Thursday!

Well I have good news! I just got the call from my dealer and they have the Fedex tracking number and they will be in the retail store tomorrow (Wednesday Nov. 1). I will get it in my grubby little hands on Thursday!

Yeah! Not too long of a wait..........

And.....for those of you who are still looking to buy one....I was told by Christine at ZGC (where I am buying and they are a DVinfo sponsor) that they will have 5 extra that are available for sale (not preordered). That was as of 10:15 this morning so that can change quick.

Buckle up guys.....it's almost showtime!

Well technically they don't have it yet.....they will tomorrow and then I'll have it Thursday.

So I am sure more and more dealers will be getting the word soon.

Thursday is an awesome deal. I wish they would be in Barcelona by then too...but these things usually take a little longer to get here.

Without my help we all know they'd never sell any of these!

Awriight--I wanna see some footage. Even stills showing the difference between 60i and 24F would be cool (I've never been able to view the footage that's been posted...try to download the viewer I need for Mac and there's always a problem with the site, so I gave up).

I just chatted with her via email and they are physically "in the building" now. Just sending her the payment now with shipping and I am good to go also!

Glad I could help out.

I got this email from B&H yesterday at 9:30a ny time:

The Canon XHA1 Camcorder you have on backorder, is
still backordered by the manufacturer with no definite
available date. As soon as we receive it from the
manufacturer, we will promptly ship out this order. We
apologize for this delay and for any inconvenience.

I guess B&H may be the biggest but not always the first. ZGC is the dealer you're using? I guess I've overlooked them. "In stock" is better than "we'll send it eventually."

I have a shoot Friday morning so I had to have it sent Next Day.....a few more bucks but I needed the extra time to get acclimated to the camera.

A whole 24 hours...........

Peace!
