I know it's not a "buy and pick-up", but I also do know that we have final assembly happening right now, with the first SI-2K units already shipping and in customer's hands. In fact if you go to our website, you can see shots of the "final" assembled camera. They'll also be some at IBC.

The problem with arrival dates is that I don't know how many sales we have (only Steve and Ari know that number). So you're going to have to call Steve and find out from him an estimated shipping date.

The MINI should be available for pick-up, and yes, they are shipping. When I say "pick-up" though, it still might be a one-to-two-week turn-around. You would have to ask Steve for details.

Since SiliconDVR is powering the MINI, and the MINI is in-fact inside the SI-2K, the capabilities of both are the same. Also you can put down the money for an SI-2K now and just get the MINI in the near-term (since it's already shipping), receiving the rest of the camera body when it's ready (again, Steve can give you an indication of how many SI-2K back-orders there are and what an estimated ship-date would be).

No you have to go through steps...

If I remember right you have to have an intel mac... use bootcamp to run the pc side... purchase Cineform... then I think take it into After Effects and convert it to quicktimes and then bring it into FCP...

Of course if I'm wrong I'm sure I'll be corrected....

To me one of the down sides of the camera... of course its always around the corner... about just bringing into FCP... that is one thing Red got right...

Yes, that is true . . . we've been saying for a while now that FCP support is "just around the corner", but I think this time you will be pleasantly surprised how close a FCP RAW solution is . . . also while Red may have gotten FCP support "right", their native RAW FCP solution isn't available as of right now (pending release from Apple), and there is no foreseeable solution on the PC side either besides rendering to suitable codecs from Redcine, which is not going to be a real-time process. So the world isn't exactly perfect yet on the other side of the fence either.

Are you working on any off line/online workflows for processing RAW?

I'm concerned about Avid, which I mentioned on another forum and the handling of the RAW from both of these data cameras.

Who knows by the time I'm ready to buy a camera all this will be outdated... or really I just should stop working for other people...

For example I purchased the DVX... it set in my home office in Missouri untouched... by the time I got to use it... the HVX was out... at the time of purchase it was just a rumor that smaller HD cameras where coming...

Yes, we are, but I don't have a timeline for you on that.

Now, granted, you can use After Effects right now to generate DNxHD files or DPX files, or whatever other format you need to go from CineForm RAW to XXX codec/file-format. But I think you're asking for a dedicated file conversion application, and that is going to be a bit further out.

There seems to be some price changes due to upgrades:
