EX3 delivery dates?

Wondering if anyone has had any word about delivery dates for the EX3 yet? Ordered mine but B&H have had no word from Sony yet. Trying to time flights around collection from NY.

TIA,

Jus.

IF this was Apple you would hear - JULY 22nd at 9AM !!
.. and well in advance.
Alas, it's Sony. No news whatsover. Very poor customer information as usual.

But I do keep hearing the 22nd from my dealer.

BH email!

As it happens, I just got an email from BH saying the following:

"Please be advised that we are expecting in the “SONY PMW-EX3 XDCAM-EX HD CAMCORDER” you have on backorder by the end of next week."

YEY!!! Triple YEY!!! [Don't ask me what YEY means, I'm just happy]. Hope the back focus is okay, the paint doesn't flake off, the microphone mount doesn't break, there are no vignetting issues, I'm not too bothered by rolling shutter, the lens seals are adequate...

Justin,

Please report when your camera is listed as "shipping" or anything other than backorder. Also, how long ago did you purchase yours from B&H? I'm curious about how long I might need to wait for mine - just purchased yesterday.

Thanks,

Ted

I though that if it were apple we wouldn't even be talking about an EX3 since no information would be available about it until the end of the month when they started taking orders and had already shipped some to retail locations... and then we would all have to sell our EX1's (that we bought since we didnt know to wait for an EX3) at a loss to buy an EX3 when it came out without notice and the EX1 price went down because of it. no? :)

Don't start me on iPhones.... AT&T stores have no idea when they will receive stock and my closest Apple store with stock was out of stock by a few minutes after 10 am.

But I do know that EX-3 shipments have started. I ordered mine today but my dealer does not know when they are scheduled to receive their first shipment.

That's awesome news! I was looking for confirmation of them shipping. I ordered mine a couple days ago and have absolutely no patience for this sort of thing. You know, the waiting part.

I think I will stick my neck out and also stick with the 22nd July still.

I ordered my Ex-3 three weeks ago and my dealer is still thinking the end of next week for taking delivery. If it's earlier great!

As for the iPhone, I sold my old iphone on ebay on Monday - so now I have to line up for an hour tomorrow morning - the things we do for the latest stuff heh!

Chat with Dallas Northpark Apple Store:
Hi, do you have any iPhones?
No., we've been sold out for two days.
When do you expect another shipment?
We're not allowed to release that information to the public.
I'm not the public-- I'm a stockholder and a journalist.

EX3's though are definitely on the way.

Ned, I got my iPhone yesterday on Miami Beach, after a one hour wait in the heat and then another hour inside the store - was it worth it? Of course !!

My local Sony dealer, Midtown Video now tell me my Ex-3 will arrive tomorrow - What a week.

I had absolutely NO WAIT at Dallas Northpark store. There was a sign outside saying No iPhones today. I went in and asked anyway. They had just unboxed shipment which arrived moments before and I got the last one in the box. In fact, they waited for me as I had to call wife on old phone to tell her I was porting number.

Your dealer must be higher on the allocation list than mine since I was told end of next week! Please post your initial impressions and good luck.
