Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

I ordered my S-Log on Friday and it is still backordered like Nick. Not sure how George's is already shipping and he ordered it after we did. What's the deal B&H? :) But I do wish this was a free update to all owners and those who already purchased should get something of equal value that they would actually want. I can't complain too much because at least it's not $3680 anymore. But if you are giving it away to new customers now... you should give it away to your faithful early adopters who made this camera popular to begin with.

You can't format or use the card when the key is on it. When you put the card in the camera it will show zero record time and the only thing you can do is to load the key onto the camera. Once the key is off the card you can use it normally.

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

The 32GB SxS Memory Card Pro is $895 from B&H. So if this is the card we are getting the S-Log option on, in essence we are getting a free upgrade and we are just buying a 32GB card. It would be nice if this could be emailed to us and we could just copy it over to the cards we already have and install it that way. The same way we do the firmware updates. Oh well. Being they seem to be so backlogged, does anyone suspect we will get these shipped out anytime soon?

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

The card the original version of the key came on was the SxS-1 card.

That card is $449, so I guess it's not a free upgrade.

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

My card hasn't shipped... turns out the email from B&H erroneously listed the card as shipped, but it was the other item I ordered. So I am waiting too.

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

It's been 2 weeks since I ordered my S-Log card from B&H. I don't really expect it soon, but has anyone heard of a time frame when they might start shipping? I wonder if it is really that difficult to manufacture these cards, or is the influx of orders that much.

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

have you tried ordering direct through sony? I was on the list for the send in program, but couldn't get mine sent in in time. which I guess was a good thing. got the email that they were offering the card and orded that. it arrived the next day.

of course, my camera is out of the country right now, so I can't play with it. but still, really fast turnaround.

Re: Waiting on Sony Service Thread

I called B&H yesterday just to see if they had an idea when the s-log cards would be in stock. The customer service rep said they had a shipment from Sony on the way. Hopefully Sony shipped enough to get all of us who have already ordered supplied.
