Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

Funny, I thought Holdan were the UK distributor, not a distributor. Hmmm.

I note that my Panasonic AC130A went from Panasonic Japan, to Panasonic UK (showing their address), then to Prestons, then finally to me. Holdan didn't seem to be in the loop at all.

But previously, my HMC41 was despatched direct from Holdan when I ordered through Prestons.

Not sure Mike, but I know one thing, when you want the newest cutting edge technology you certainly are made to wait round for it.

Is there any reason there are no good reviews on this camera yet in your opinion?

I'm not sure, Phil. Come to think of it, I've bought an AC130A, it's been around at least a year longer than the AC-90, and there's not that many reviews of the AC130/160s either! I'd guess that it's down to the specialist nature, there's very few of these things sold. We get one or two reviews, such as HD Warrior, Adam Wilt etc., but not many.

Compare this to the more consumer-oriented cameras, there's shed-loads of unboxings and reviews of them on Youtube.

Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

Fingers crossed hey, I will attempt to put something up next week if I can

I am really interested to see the difference between the AC130 and the AC90, would it be that larger sensors produce better footage all round?

Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

Unfortunately no good news for me...

"We have been accepting orders for this camera since its announcement at the end of last year.

We have recently receive a small delivery cameras from Panasonic - fortunately for your friend their order would have been placed early enough to secure a camera from this delivery. I hope you can appreciate and understand our list of pre orders are being fulfilled strictly in chronological order.

Since the camera was announced last year, unfortunately we've only received a few small deliveries. I'll speak to Panasonic tomorrow morning to see if they can shed any light on when our next delivery is likely to be and if this will contain the camera for your order."

Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

Hi Ethan, I am sure they are catching up with orders as quick as they can but I waited over a month for mine (who said Internet banking was fast ha).

If you can hold out then sit tight, it's worth the wait. But you know Holdans have stock at a much higher price if you wanted it now..

I have just gone through the same thing ordering an imac 27" top spec, but at east apple allowed me visibility to getting built, shipped, delivery status etc..

CVP were great with me, although stating 2 weeks delivery is unrealistic, they offered alternatives but some members on here told me to wait if I can (they were right)..

I don't do unboxing videos, but if I can get the time to put up a video or two this week I will

PS I phoned Panasonic a few times to get updates on shipments

PPS Mike was right, the unit came via Holdan ltd, good call Mike

So Holdan has their own stock and sells direct, but as a distributor doesn't deliver to their resellers?
Hmmm :-(

Re: Panasonic ag ac90 - Uk customer delays

I'm not sure... I mean, my AC130 came from Panasonic and not from Holdan. It could be different for different models of camera.

Phil - I can assume you're like a kid in a sweetie shop now. Let us know what your impressions of the camera are, I hope it doesn't disappoint. By all accounts, it packs a lot of punch for its price, and certainly looks the part.
