Hi Gang,

I'm desperately waiting for my crystalsky to show up.  Has anyone in the tri-state area recevied the ultra bright large one yet?  I ordered mine from B&H in early May and it still isn't here.  I'm going away soon and I'd love to bring it with me.  If anyone knows of a viable online retailor who stocks these, feel free to pass along.  Thank You.

Advexure has my pre-order for the UltraBright and they're hoping for a mid-to-late August shipment BUT they are not very confident in those dates from DJI.

It's ok, as long as I have a realistic timeframe, that is all that matters.  So all of the reports in the wild are from test units I guess.   Oh well, I'm 10 or so months into DJI so I guess what they say is true, their shipments aren't ontime, no communication from the company etc.  I'll sit back and wait.

Pretty sure those test units were the High Brightness, I haven't come across any posts about the Ultra's on the various forums, do you have any links?

And you're a patient man, I preordered the 7.8 HB almost as soon as it was released late June (from DJI) and was going to cancel when the 30th-July shipping date came and went with no update, checked my email just before cancelling and found a shipping notice, should now be delivered tomorrow.

Hi Mindy, I ordered it through B&H, not DJI direct.  My assumption is if you guys are shipping, they will be shortly thereafter.

But SO worth it when you get there.  Friendliest people but most inhospitable creatures.  Everything is trying to kill you, except the people.  Truly beautiful country!

Thanks, but I'll take kangaroos and koalas over bears and bobcats, though it doesn't help that most of our nastiest things look cute and innocent.

And just took delivery of my 7.5"HB, can't really use it until tomorrow because the S/H P3 charger I bought on fleabay doesn't work, that model number is on the compatible list (A14-057N1A) but it must be an earlier revision of the charger because it's missing the barrel connector. Luckily found an inspire1 charger locally for pretty cheap.

"though it doesn't help that most of our nastiest things look cute and innocent. "

Sounds like a lot of the fairer sex, here in the US!

Please post up your impressions of the CrystalSky when you get a chance.

Had a couple of flights today and I'm very impressed, even with the sun reflecting into my eyes I could see the screen well. Was originally planning on upgrading to the UB when released but I'm not sure now.

You would definitely benefit from using this screen at Burning Man! It's bright in the desert.... you will have a blast. I have been a house DJ for 20 years.

The DJI CrystalSky 7.85" Ultra-Bright Monitor (MFR # CP.BX.000224), unfortunately, appears to be vaporware. Too bad - I'd really like to purchase one. There has been no official indication of a product release date from DJI anywhere on their website or in these user forums. You can't even pre-order this model from the DJI Store. B&H Photo Video, which does allow you to place a preorder, has been indicating availability as "New Product - Coming Soon" for the past 4 months! Thus, we now know "coming soon" on B&H website doesn't mean product will be available within the next 4 months. So, it could be another 4 months!

I cancelled my order.  Decided I"m not spending 1k on a screen.  I think it's dump.  Will continue to use my ipad 4 and cover.

Yes I agree with you that this is quite dissapointing.  Thank you for your response.

Advexture is expecting Early-to-Mid October for the first units to start shipping.  Trickle at first and then a bigger shipment.  I’m still holding out hope (and leaving my preorder standing).

Your Mileage May Vary.

Where you have ordered from is best to consult with on the delivery date. Here is hoping to a quick arrival.

Not yet.  I’ve not heard of anyone getting theirs delivered.  It would seem to be a waiting game.

I've got one Ultra Bright left for sale in the UK if anyone's interested?

I won't post a link as it's probably against the forum rules but search eBay UK, it's the only one on there :thumbs_up:

Howdy!  I wanted to report that I just received my Ultrabright 7.85 Version today.  I ordered mine from Adorama Camera about 4 months ago.  Hopefully everyone else will start receiving theirs.
