When Will Camera Be Avalible?

Sorry if this has been answered before---(I did a cursory search and couldn't find anything on the board or on the site).

Hi David,

Not to worry, we're working on it, adding in some great new features (based on your requests), qualifying equipment, adding more field-test projects, and getting ready for production parts . . . I'm not allowed to tell you exactly when we're going to ship, but let's just say relatively "soon" ;)

Jason,
To clarify, there are 2 versions of the SI-1920 correct?
--The one that appeared at NAB with the swappable HD
--& the SI-1920 HD (mini) that David Newman shot that nice short with.

maybe they are similar core versions & what was shown at NAB didn't need a laptop to stream as it was recording to a HDrive (also had a touch screen).
But for the bare bones we could hook to and control with a laptop

Time Frame for both is soon? and ballpark Cost of each?
Forgive me, I am trying to navigate the info on each - I am extremely interested with what Mr. Newman shot his short with
Specs/ Size/ Intechangable Lenses & the sheer look are fantastic

Thanks,
J

I believe there is one that's 2k and a 1080i/p model that is a bit smaller. I think. Jason, Ari, can you confirm/deny?

Thanks,

heath

Thanks Heath,
I don't know why I think this doesn't have to do with the size - I thought that the size was related to having a processor in camera that could enable recording to hard drive.

from what i recall ...
there are 2 versiosn of the camera ..
mini - which is the sensor with lens mount - you connect to your computer ..
then there is the full body model that was shown at NAB but the body shown was a beta model design - not the final model design ... they have been listening to all the post - the final design should take into account what has been posted/requested ...also on the full body model the sensor block can be separated from the body ( recorder) ...

as far as i recall there is only a 1920x1080 camera available this fall not a 2k.
