About the Delivery Date
I promised that I would give you the big camera update this week, and I plan to.
Right now I just wanted to give you all a heads up that we will definitely need to push the delivery date on the cameras. I don't know how much yet, we are trying hard to lock down a final date as soon as possible with our new project manager. Sorry this sounds vague, hopefully we will know the new date in the next few days. I wanted to update you now, just in case it takes longer than anticipated.
We will do everything we can to stick to the new date. I sincerely apologize for the delay, and take full responsibility for it and for telling you about it this late in the game. Our initial release date was based upon the camera announced at the time of the Kickstarter launch and I should have pushed the release date when we made changes to the camera. We already knew that we would be at least a couple weeks behind because of this, but I was naively optimistic that we could make the time up somewhere.
This is the new stuff today:
In general development is going well other than the timing/delays.
In the past months we have built up a good core development team and things are really starting to fall into place and move at a better pace now.
CNC model #3 is in build now so mid-August is the target of having that in hand.
Generally similar in shape to the last CNC proto but with all of the practical details worked out including internal electronics, cabling, heat sinking, structural integrity etc.
We have been buying components so we have a stock of parts for the first build of 100 cameras in parallel with our development.

Again, I personally apologize for the delay. I hope in the end we will deliver to you a product better than the one you bid on, and in a relatively timely manner. We're in the home stretch here, and while Canada is finishing up things on their end, Elle and I are finishing up stuff on our end--QCing the Blus & DVDs, fine-tuning the box design, writing the user manual, and other loose ends. We'll be there as soon as we can!
As always thank you for your support, Joe
