  #1 Vista Vision Update. 
    Ok.

    VV.

    Good news. No. GREAT news.

    This week we got in a monster batch of VV sensors with a yield so high that it's off the charts.. More perfect sensors in this single batch than we have had in 2 years...

    Initial package testing was completed this morning and the results of months and months and months of incredible hard work from our incredible engineering team looks to have finally paid off.

    Mind blowing.

    These will continue to go through the normal QA and characterization over the next few weeks and start to be ready to drop into Weapons in mid October.. so if you are early on the list get ready.

    This batch and hopefully the next batch next month should start to finally make a good dent in the preorders ( but not all of them ) Your order time is important... but also those who have had a good attitude during the painful wait will also be rewarded.

    O.. and if you are one of the handful that bought a Storm Trooper Weapon and have a VV reservation in , you get a nice little push to the front of the line. I told you there would be a reward for that leap of faith, so thank you :)

    Of course... shit could go wrong and the next batch could be back to nothing which mean when we call for your VV upgrade, please be ready. No pressure if you want to wait of course, but the road is still unknown. These VVs are special unicorns.

    Get into a Weapon if you have your eyes on VV. The customer upgrade program for non-dsmc cameras ends September 28th, if you have a DSMC2 you will have a bit more time than that... but come october and the RED ARMOR-X program begins that includes sensor swapping and that's only open to Weapon owners with some weight on if you already have one before the program begins.

    Thank you all again for being patient... I know it's been a long one.

    That's freaking huge! Sounds like there's going to be a lot more joining the VV party shortly!

    Quick question. With the Sensor Swap Program and Dragon 8K VV potentially going into DSMC2 Camera born with a Helium Sensor in there, what does that mean for in camera IPP2 support? Or is that a pure Helium only thang?

    Phil, good question. IPP2 is not compatible in-camera with any form of DRAGON sensor.

    How long for DSMC2 owners to upgrade before paths are closed? Will it be sensor change only from October on?

    This is what we waited for... But now as Jarred let us have heliums in the mean time it will be really difficult to let go. I never thought I wanted two cameras, not two of the same brand and especally not two 8k cameras. And then here I am... :)

    Now I really quickly need to find that special project that really demands that I one of each. :)
