No shipping email to me from B&H yet -- I ordered the DR60 hdd also and the DR60 is still showing 'accepting orders' in the B&H listings. Hope my V1 is not held up awaiting the DR60!

If you opt for 1 or 2 day delivery they ship out the same day - otherwise they wait 1-2 business days to ship if you opt for ground (3-5 day delivery)

I got the email notification on Sunday. Looks like I'll have my camera this week.

Looking forward to getting out and shooting some video with it.

Finally arrived

Just got my camera at 11 this morning - am at work so haven't had too much time to play with it. Very professional looking unit. Will post some impressions comparing this to my FX1 when I get a chance.

Recieved my V1U from B&H this morning. Arrived one day early via FedEx 2 day having traveled all the way to Oregon. Its smaller and lighter than I had expected - perfect. Grabed some quick 30i automode shots of birds on my backyard feeder. They look fantastic on my 1080p HDTV...

Brian, where in Oregon are you located? I'm in Portland.

Picture This (a local rental co.) has been told they'll be receiving their 2 V1s this week.

Please PM me if you'd like to talk about your work and my work?

I noticed that B&H still does not show the V1 as "in stock" so has the entire first shipment been claimed by preorders I guess?

I took the afternoon off to sign for my camera when delivered by UPS. It didn't make it.

NOW I find out that it may not have even left B&H. I'm not happy.

If that is the case I'm going to cancel my order and get one later next year when I need it again. I guess I'm not meant to have one right now.

They (B&H) seem to be having a tough time keeping up with orders - I was promised that mine would go out Monday and it didn't ship until Wednesday - I needed to pay for faster shipping otherwise it wouldn't have reached me before Christmas. In general, B&H have been very good, and I've never had a problem ordering online, but the phone order process for my V1U has been trying.

I picked my V1U up at UPS this afternoon (shipped from B&H). I played around with it and was very happy. I only had a few hours before work so I adjusted the V1U to my M2 (RedRock Micro 35mm adapter) and was very pleased on how it looks (after spending time shimming the camera and the rods). I'M OFF TOMORROW!!! So I hope (if the kids let me) to go outside and record. If I'm able to, I'll post some clips (this is with the M2).

Todd

(don't quote me on posting clips since it's all dependant on my 4 year old and my 17 month old)

There is hope. My camera might have been found.

If they can physically put their hands on it I'm driving to Greensboro NC to get it today.
