Release date of new Theta S

Postby mbirth » 23 Sep 2015, 08:58

Does anybody know when the new model is to be shipped to Germany?

When I pre-ordered it on the official RICOH website, there was no shipping date shown. Now, they say something about 9th of November.

Amazon.com (USA) shows 23rd of October.
Amazon.co.uk shows 1st of November.
Amazon.fr shows 2nd of November.
Amazon.de, .es and .it don't have the new model listed yet.

I'm a bit worried that I might get the camera later than if I ordered it from Amazon UK. That would be sad.

I ordered my Theta S from fotokoch.de on Sept 16. One week later I got an email saying that it will ship "middle of November".

On bhphotovideo.com it states that the Theta S will start shipping on November 10. So at least German and US deliveries are somewhat in sync. Hence I would be surprised if Amazon UK gave you much of a head start. ;-)

Just for the records: I am neither affiliated with Foto Koch nor with B&H.

Mind if I asked where you ordered yours from? I've had one on order with Amazon and got an email this morning that shipping's been delayed until an unknown date. I'm leaving on a trip Nov 5 and really wanted to bring the Theta S with me.

I ordered mine on the RICOH shop in the first half of September.

I ordered mine in the USA on Amazon.com on September 6, and I got an e-mail yesterday 10/26 saying it had shipped and would arrive tomorrow 10/28. A rep at the PhotoExpo in NYC last Thursday said that Amazon (USA I assume) had a first shipment of 200 -300.
