Here in Italy various dealers told me the camera will be ready to ship on sept. 15th.
They are also telling me I'd better order it because if I don't it will take a long time before I get one.

Price here is 2999 euro...pretty expensive

why it is so expensive?

It's not expensive. All of its competition is priced >$10K.  Black magic does not have any high end products to protect, and/or they aren't involved in any collusive shenanigans with the other major manufacturers; therefore, they can produce a camera that undercuts all of the competition by thousands of dollars. 

 

It would be nice if you could actually by one in a store though  :blink:.

Not sure what Helen is questioning (see my next post) but I find that when it comes to pricing a lot of consumers need to get a clue. They'd happily spend 1000 euros on a TV which makes movies look like digital sick, but a mini Alexa artistic tool is 'too expensive' at 3000 euros.

I think you mean expensive compared to the price in GBP which is £2200? 2999 euros is a mark up over Blackmagic's official pricing?

B&H lists the EF model as "Backordered" but the MFT version is still "Expected availability: December 30 2012". I talked a rep today who has said that there is no indication that they won't be able to stick to that date. Has anyone else heard otherwise?

I was told at at trade show 2 weeks ago not to expect the Mircro 4/3 version until early next year.
