The Foolography team hopes that everyone had a great start into 2019. We’re super excited about this year as we have big plans for the Unleashed and other products. One of our goals is definitely to grow the community around the Unleashed so we can help each other to get the most out of our cameras and become better at taking photos and videos. We’re very grateful for everyone who supports us and the vision!
We’re also thankful for all the great feedback that helped us to fix many bugs and make the Unleashed more stable. It’s great to see how so many people love using the Unleashed and what you can create with it.
As the 1st batch of Unleasheds was already sold out in October, the 2nd batch is in the making and will arrive at our office soon. We initially planned to have it by December to be able to ship all the other pre-order before Christmas, but unfortunately, we’re experiencing delays in the last steps of production. To give you a little more insight: The only step still missing before we can start packing and shipping the Unleashed, is that the casing is being ultrasonic welded around the PCB. So basically, all the chips and components are already assembled, the firmware is on the PCBs, but the plastic casing still needs to be attached. Right now, we’re very much dependent on our production partner and hope that we’ll receive the finished Unleasheds in the next couple of weeks. Once we have them, we’ll start immediately with packing and shipping.
As around 800 Unleashed’s have been shipped and another 200 been packed so far, we’re still packing and shipping the rest of 1st batch Unleasheds. So far, we’ve mainly shipped N1 and N2’s, but started with the Canon versions C1 and C2 this week, as well.
In general, we ship depending on the versions, shipping country and order date. As written in the last blog entry, we started with the N1, then N2, then C1 and C2. The distinction amongst shipping countries is necessary as the way of shipping might vary amongst countries and thus the packing/labeling process. So depending on the version you ordered your Unleashed might not have been shipped yet. – But will be soon!
Tracking will be available, but not for 100% of all shipments, and there’ll be varying types of tracking. Some will be available as a link to the customer with full details of every step, some will just be basic tracking, and yet others will use RFID tracking with only a delivery confirmation for us (ie no info for the recipient). What kind of tracking you get depends on destination country and shipping batch. Where available, you’ll get the tracking link in an email once we ship your Unleashed. In any case, you’ll get an email when we ship your device. We can’t give you more details than that before we actually get to shipping your package.
