Hey guys,

I was mistaken about the guy who got his already -- he ordered May 5th.

Read his threads on Amazon etc. He apparently received the camera already from his other posts.

Maybe you want to post your order date and estimated ship date so we can compare notes! So much for Amazon Prime huh?

Order Date: May 14, 2009
Estimated Arrival: June 15th - June 30th.

No word yet.

I ordered mine May 6th from Amazon. The estimated shipping date is not June 24th (it used to be June 2nd - June 24th). So my guess is 6 more days!

It seems like maybe many places could be shipping out next week... keeping fingers crossed!

I'm the dpreview poster (PatrickSF). To the extent it helps you figure out where you are in the Amazon queue, I ordered mine on May 5th at 4:57pm PST. Originally, I selected 2-day shipping (via Amazon Prime), but changed it to 1-day just in case it shipped on a Thursday.

why would you schedule a shoot with a camera that hasn't been released?

I read somewhere that if you change anything with your order on Amazon it can send you to the back of the line...

Might have to go with ebay if you need one!

Why? They're in stock right now at Panasonic Direct.

I did get mine from Amazon already. It shipped last Wednesday, 6/17. I did 2nd day shipping so I got it on Friday, 6/19. I placed my order on Wed 5/06/09 12:05 AM. The camera is AWESOME! Plus, so far I am NOT getting the mud on 1080/24 that many have reported and I am only using class 6 SDHC memory. Maybe I'm not getting the breakdown in footage because I am shooting at slower shutter speeds like 1/30. I think I had some problems shooting at faster speeds but I have to review my footage again and do some more tests to confirm. Perhaps Panny changed something in their firmware for the U.S. release? I don't know and I don't care. Other than the much reported no live HDMI and limited audio controls/monitoring, the only thing so far that I don't like is where the battery is. When I have to change the battery I also have to remove my quick release plate attached to it which kinda sucks especially if you need to change the battery quickly in the middle of a live shoot. I'm sure I'll find more limitations. But for $1500 I can't complain!

Don't know if this helps but I live in the L.A. area.

I ordered one from Amazon on Saturday with the free shipping option and it said 1-2 months on the product description page. I received an email right after submitting the order that said July 15-August 3. The product description page no longer has a date. In fact, you can't order it from Amazon direct anymore. It says "Available from these sellers" which is the Amazon Marketplace. My order still shows July 15-August 3, but I'm not counting on it. I'll be waiting patiently and seeing what else crops up, footage/features/discoveries-wise and even alternate cameras.

I also ordered from Adorama and J&R and neither shows any dates at all.

After contacting Amazon, they emailed me saying that the camera is now on backorder and with no estimated date of delivery. They say that to compensate me for my "less than positive" experience, they're crediting my account $7. WOW.

I had a GH1 in my amazon cart waiting for good news in this thread to pull the trigger. It was moved to the "saved items" and is not available anymore!!
