Hi Nick,

The timing of it is just too coincidental with the majority stake takeover by DJI to be (the job is done) credible.

I'm afraid this may cause a huge amount of pre-order cancellations, which would be a shame.

Cheers,
Bart

Sorry Bart but people are not going to change their mind about buying a camera because of a management change... Now they are finally shipping decent numbers I think they'll see an uptick in orders.

This is  very disappointing development.  Perry was one of the few CEOs in the industry who "got it".  His thinly-veiled  ouster by the new ownership does not bode particularly well, as I am sure it will have a negative morale impact in what is a very small company. 

As one of the few people who's shot with an X1D, I can say they have made a beautiful r/evolutionary (if still flawed) camera, and Perry gets the credit.  I wish him well.

uptick in cancellations and uptick in orders will go hand in hand
