Perry has been a great CEO but has decided it is time to step down, he will be sorely missed.

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
