Shipping Date for the EX

Does anyone know the official word on a possible shipping date and/or USD price yet? Do you think it will release before DV EXPO WEST?

(Didn't see a thread for this so direct me to it if I missed it)

B&H shows Approx. November and price as TBA. It's a Jewish Holiday (has been for many days) so they may update it on Sunday or Monday.

I talked with a rep at Discont Video and he said Mid November. He also mentioned that the price for the camera is a "Fixed" price. Apparently, he says, it cannot be sold under 6449... anyways here's the email below.


"Hi Ashley,
We started entering orders yesterday. The price is $6449 and we are expecting shipments by mid-November (so says Sony).
I expect this to be one of the more successful product offerings of recent years. It seems to have all the right stuff.
I’ve attached the product brochureb and a link to an interesting review, please let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
Lee

My supplier has told me today he has heard they are leaving Sony in Japan next week so should be available to customers the week after. Let's hope so

I ordered one on BH Photo about a week ago and contacted them today about expected shipping date. They said Sony will ship around Thanksgiving or after. If this is true I will have to wait till I return from a tradeshow, 1st of December. Terrible.

Around Thanksgiving (Nov 22 for those not from USA)!
My gosh, we'll have scoured the manual and run out of things to talk about by then!

You've got that right!

I'd like to hear more about direct comparisons with current cams that are close in price. I know there's a few of us that had our hands on these things briefly.

Ok
As I just posted in another thread, I just got off the phone with my Sony dealer.
This dates are for Norway (Europe).
The camera will ship from The Netherlands 8th of November arriving in Norway around the 12th

Price has dropped the equivalent of $2000 since I placed my order in August.

16GB card is $1000 over here
Wideangel adapter is $685
Batteries $300

One peoblem is that only the camera with 2 8GB cards will ship first.
Batteries in December
WA in January
Cards?

The battery situation is idiotic. One need a spare battery, I canīt go on a shoot with one batttery

Just thought I share this information

I can't imagine many professionals are going to be able to go on a shoot knowing that their camera will last less than 2 hours. I suppose it would give us a few weeks to get used to the camera though.

When I placed my order I was told that the battery and camera would ship together but the WA would be in December, but that was a few weeks ago though so may be out of date info.

I know. I hope what I was told was wrong when it comes to the battery situation.
Do the camera ship with a power adapter to run it off the mains?
