    My SI-2K Mini is at the border awaiting clearance! Will be delivered tomorrow (shouldn't overnight take less than 3 days? - I love FedEx)

    So, um ...

    I think the LCD touch screen monitor has been shipped with it too, but I'm a little unclear on that. That might come next week.

    I've been waiting over a year to buy the HVX200 (and loving these forums) and, damn, that's a great 1/3" camera, and now I'm finally getting it, except that it has been upgraded to an SI-2K Mini!

    I am

    I'm actually kinda curious as to how many people are actively interested in this camera. I was hoping to read more about the cam before I bought it, but I may just be the first on my block to have one. ?

    I hope I can get a handle on the software quickly and can get some stills or footage up in short order. Either way, I'll post my impressions as they come.

    For now, I'm off to see Letters From Iwo Jima (or maybe Blood Diamond). Christmas isn't until tomorrow.

    What glass are you going to use with it? I am very interested to hear back on this.

    OK, I'm just out the door, but since you're "very" interested:

    I've recently bought a Zeiss 12-120mm Super 16 zoom with macro. You can check out the lens (if it is still posted) at Visual Products' website which I think is simply www.visualproducts.com

    I'm sure I'll be looking into a super wide super 16 prime when I can afford it.

    I'll be fitting it this weekend to a Cartoni head and sticks (not sure which one yet, likely the Laser). As far as matte box and FF, I'll have to see what works.

    Cheers!

    By the way, I'm not sure that the Super 16 will suffice, I just hope it will, and was told that it should be sharper than the brand new primes I was looking at. OK, I'm off to Iwo Jima ...

    Got it! VERY BUSY!

    SI-2K Mini
    7" Touch Screen Monitor
    noga arm (for monitor)
    base plate (Chroziel?)

    Spent the day multitasking while learning about the camera/software functions from Ari at Silicon Imaging via a few hours on the phone (thanks Ari!).

    I know this will be disappointing, but for now all I can say is: AMAZING! The functionality of this camera, its work flow, etc is just mind blowing. I attached it to my laptop (Dell M90) and recorded straight to the OS drive, no problems. I haven't set up my external drive yet.

    Haven't even plugged in the LCD yet.

    I had to hold the lens and camera in one hand (no tripod yet) while talking on the phone and operating the laptop with the other. So, today was spent mostly going over the features of the amazing software and camera software interface.

    I don't want to comment on the picture yet, but I noticed great DOF and in my dark apartment I really had to try hard to get a noisy image by boosting the gain all the way and aiming at a really dark area. Still, not bad! I think the image is going to absolutely rock!

    Sorry, I didn't want to not say anything for those that are interested, but I have to head out. Tomorrow I search for a tripod and head and see if I can get some pics.

    I don't promise anything, but if you have any questions I'll do my best.

    Cheers! Sorry for the rush job!

    I'm eager to hear back (and see some photos / stills) from this camera.
