43rumors reader Jeff just sent us that message:
“Over in the dvinfo.net blackmagic forum, I had the chance to ask John Brawley if he was allowed to comment on RAW yet he responded by saying the camera will likely ship without raw and it will be added at a later date. He’s maintained he hasn’t been allowed to release any footage or info without BMD’s permission. They must have authorized him to make that statement. First time I’ve seen him comment on raw.“
Pity we have to wait for the fw update to get RAW recording. Anyway, we will patiently wait for the new firmware as we will had to do for the camera. BHphoto (Click here) changed the status for the Blackmagic camera. It now says “Available for pre-order” and no more “shipping on July 25”. Hope this doesn’t mean it’s delayed. But the camera is worth the long wait. Juts watch that new video sample on top…amazing quality!
P.S.: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema preorders in USA at Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and in Germany at Technikdirekt, in France at pbs-video. In Sweden at macoteket, scandinavianphoto, protel.jetshop, webhallen.
