URSA Mini - any updates on a shipping date?
on Jul 22, 2015 at 10:09:32 am

Hi there; first post so please forgive me if it is in the wrong place, a stupid question or I've just effectively committed the forum etiquette equivalent of pulling down my pants at a cocktail party!

I've very recently decided to take the plunge and start my own video production business (part time) after years of dabbling/messing around. As part of that I have 'treated myself' to the URSA Mini.

I know that the websites are still stating shipping in July, but I wondered if anyone has any further updates on this as there are only 9 days of July left?

Thanks!

Only Blackmagic would have those details and they are never (NEVER) accurate. Do not listen to anything their marketing department says, including (but not limited to) what features will or will not be in the product (or are half working) and when / if it will ever ship.

Darren, at the BMD event in NYC July 22nd, a rep stated the URSA Mini camera and the new 4.6K sensor would ship late August or early September. This is just their current estimate and could change. Normally, in the past, BMD ramps up production slowly, so the first shipments, including the 4.6K turret, will be relatively few in number. As they receive customer feedback on those units, then the next shipments a few weeks later will be larger but there will still be a backlog of preorders that may take several months to clear, When the second round of production begins, you could begin phoning smaller retailers to see if they have any stock; that's the fastest way you'll get a Mini if you didn't preorder in April.

Hey guys,
Yeah I ordered mine back in April and just last week got an email from B&H about the back order. They just said "sorry but your item is still not shipping". So I inquired about any info they have received from BM and they answer with:

"Thank you for contacting the Customer Service Department at B&H Photo Video and Pro Audio.

I apologize that you are still waiting for this. As of now, we have received notification from our vendor that we might get these towards the end of this month. The notification also indicates we will get enough to cover all backorders.

Of course this is not a guarantee but just an estimate based on the info we have received from our vendor.

Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Thank you, we appreciate your business"

So... yeah probably another month.
