Hello All,

To summarize my situation for those of you who have shown interest:

Ordered H9, 4 yr. Accident warranty, 4 GB MS Pro Duo, HD TV Cord, and Extra Battery, NP-BG1 on 3/22/2006 from SonyStyle.

So far I have received everything except the H9 and the Warranty. I just received the battery today.

Sonystyle still lists ship date as 'May 11, 2007' but if you click on pre-order button it states 'May 4, 2007'. Both state "Will ship On or Before" these dates.

These Accessories were removed from Sonystyle soon after I ordered them

A while ago a Sony rep informed me that they expected the H9 in their warehouse on April 11, 2007 and it will ship soon after.

Well, I am waiting. And checking my order status everyday.

I do carry my R1 with me but find I don't take it out but instead think of the shots I would be able to get with the H9.

Hope you find this interestng.

Very exciting! I talked with a rep on Friday when I was considering ordering this camara. The website said May 11th and we wanted to know if it might be sooner. I was told May 4th or sooner. I was going to buy the H5 instead because we have a big trip we're leaving for on May 3rd and need a nice camara. I decided Sunday I wanted the H9 after all and so I preordered it. He said I was in the first batch of people who will be getting the camara but this person was clueless of the ship date. I'm okay if we don't get to take it on our vacation because I'll be getting a better camara in the long run (we're just going to borrow one). I'm exciting to read when you get yours. I'm quite disappointed they don't have the accessories back on the website, I really want to get extra batteries asap, I can be patient for the other items.

Hi Justjody,

Hope you get your H9 before your trip.

The same battery is also used in the DSC-N1.

The package indicates: NP-BG1, G Type. Scan# 2724267534.

It should be widely available.

Let us know the progress of your H9 order. I will do the same.

Hello All,

Sony just made available their UV filter of 74mm for the H9 at Sonystyle.

Pricey at $49.99, but since 74mm is not made by anyone else I ordered it for my H9.

I never use a camera without a UV filter on it unless I am using my circular polariser.

Still no word on the Ship Date of my H9. No Ship Date for the UV filter either.

Regards, Nicholas
