[CLOSED] Pre-orders shipping yet?
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:57:20 PM »
@admins:

Can you give us a update on how the shipping is coming along?

Will all of the cameras go out this week?

So far we've shipped 118 Kickstarter rewards and 67 of 157 store/PO orders, for a total of 185 cameras shipped out of 275 orders. 90 cameras remain to be shipped.

We're doing about 20-30 per day, so expect mid next week for getting everything out.

I missed this update. Thank you for letting us know. I was expecting a much longer wait, since I only recently ordered mine.

They said they made several extra cameras to go beyond the current orders. So your wait should be just at the end of the existing orders in front of ya.

My deliver date is tomorrow.. cant wait..

Guess I need to finally decide on a sd now.. :)

Well I have my SD card already here, just have to have some fast stuff to film so get some practice. Cat drinking water, Cat + laser pointer, hit-n-miss engine, gun stuff.

I'll also need to get some clarification on the "Do not expose the camera to molten metal". I presume they are talking physical contact and not simply close proximity.

When did you order your camera?  I was a late pre-order, but I was really hoping my camera would ship early this week so I would get it before the weekend.  Alas, I still don't have a tracking number, so there is little chance of me getting the camera this week.

Expose I would assume is do not let it touch it. Also there is a lot of heat generated by molten metal and that can cause some issues with Heat. So I wouldnt dunk it in there....Although.... would be a cool video! Someone has to try it hahahaha

Yea. That's my assumption. Just had to be the smartie that asks for clarification on such a question.

I do my own bullet casting and there is blacksmithing at the steam thresher reunion.

"Do not expose to molten metal" refers to getting molten metal on or in the camera. Added this to the manual after a certain user broke their camera by getting molten metal inside after they built a liquid Pewter squirtgun.

Oh geese, I thought that warning was someone just being fun when writing the manual. Did not know that it was actually something that happened.

So are there any shots of The Backyard Scientist's camera after you got it back?  Was the damage just on the main board or did it damage other things too?

I feel like it's watching water boil. The more you watch the longer it seems to take.

I know that I'm pretty much the last one to order a camera, so I'll get mine when everyone else does.
