fx1 has shipped

I ordered my fx-1 from sony select USA on Wednsday in the evening. This am (friday 10/29) I received shipping confirmation with fed ex tracking #. The unit is to arrive on Monday. The unit ships from San Diego and is coming to me in AZ.

So, it appears these units are shipping right now when purchased directly from sony select usa.

FYI

I just ordered from Sony Style USA and it does in fact say it ships in about 1 day.....However, I called Sony Style USA and they said it wouldn't ship until November 15, 2004

I hope you get it, but I don't understand the different information

sony style canada has given up...

they no longer even put in a date estimating stock/availability - last week, it said "available Nov. 23" as an expected date...

Now there is nothing...

I would look at some of the larger dealers and some of the Pro dealers. They might still have them in stock. Try Precision Camera in Vancouver, Toronto and Halifax.

I got (the only) one that was in stock at Henry's in Ottawa.

I had previously put in an order with The Sony Store, with a request for a guaranteed delivery date by November 18th, which they couldn't make when the release was pushed back to the 20th.

I'm not sure how Henry's got one, but I think the supply is really limited.

I've certainly been impressed with my new toy... but the big issue for buyers is accessories, CODEC and software support right now. If you can't play back and edit the clips that are posted in a variety of places, and are convinced you want to shoot HDV, be warned: you will probably have to spend more money to get suitable hardware, as there's nothing in the box to help.

Thank you! I must say I am VERY happy to part of this club!

Took a bit to get it, but thats ok... I'm fiddling with the options as I type to get the system taking off all the 'Auto' settings..

Interesting tid-bit about the camera is all the Beeps and Boops. Perhaps pointless, but its a nice little feature!
