BlackmagicBlackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera delay

We're hearing reports that the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and the 4K camera are slightly delayed

Here's a statement from Simon Westland of Blackmagic Design EMEA:

 “Blackmagic Design is making significant progress in production of the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. Full production manufacturing is underway on the Pocket Cinema Camera with first production units in final testing. This is inline with our initial expectations of the end of July and means the camera will start to ship in quantity during August.

There are several weeks of work to do on Production Camera 4K before this will enter full production manufacturing, however we expect to ship the first quantities of this model before the end of August.”

(Thanks to Production Gear for bringing this to our attention).

Unlike the first responses to this on Blackmagic's forum, which seem to convey surprise, dismay and disappointment, we're not surprised at all. No manufacturer can absolutely guarantee the availability of new products, unless they already have a warehouse full of them, fully tested.

So, don't panic! There is nothing unusual or sinister about this!
