    Any update? Have testers been selected yet? Notified yet? Devices shipped yet?

    Well yes, we just got it in a newsletter:

    Beta Testing

    We’ve been going through the hundreds (and hundreds) of completed beta testing forms. Thank you to everyone who has offered to help us out as we have been overwhelmed and delighted with your support. We will be getting in touch with the lucky few this coming week, so keep an eye on your inboxes.

    Speaking of… I accidentally unsubscribed from the newsletter and can’t figure out how to get back in. I’ve sent an e-mail to ask if they could subscribe me again to no avail. Maybe it got marked as spam?

    Yes, I got that after I posted. Sounds like quite a few people interested. The time it shows is not the time I actually posted, probably due to the moderation delay.

    Do you know what beta testing form mean?
    Just because I wrote an e-mail on the same day when they sent the initial e-mail about beta testing, but I did not receive any reply or form-like questions…

    Maybe they didn’t even receive my e-mail or it landed directly in spam folder, etc…

    Yup, an odd bug, and even if approved they does not appear at the front as activity in the thread until a moderator make a comment in the thread too…. So I have made a habit of after approve to make a dummy comment and delete it…. Making it even more tedious…. I sure hope they find a smarter solution soon.

    I do not know how the beta test is going to work, but I hope they find an open way of reporting so people do not waste time on describing and reporting bugs other have already sent in.
    I don’t see much point in doing it in this completely open forum though. I mean not much point in discussing bugs found as long as they are corrected before (or shortly after) release.

    I would hope they just set up a bug-tracking system for the testers, such as bugzilla or similar.

    It might be not possible to post here that you’re involved in beta testing,
    There is an NDA(obviously), and it may(or may not) require you to keep the participation in beta testing as part of confidential information.

    Since the beta tester will probably have to sign an nda, I highly doubt that the testers will be allowed to post about bugs anywhere public.

    So I have figured out how to sign up again I think :). I think due to browser issues the popup offering to sign up for the mailing list did not show on my pc, or I am simply blind. Anything much I missed in the last newsletter?

    Not really. Except the beta, some about the Düsseldorf event (now two days ago), and a photo sample. (I copied that to Chen’s photo-thread)

    Sorry to hear you haven’t received a reply to your message. Our Microsoft Exchange email provider likely blocked the message as all queries are answered from our side. We will implement Zendesk before launch to improve this.

    I believe the subscribe widget doesn’t show up any further once closed. You can find an online version of the missed newsletter at https://mailchi.mp/fxtec/heres-the-latest-pro1-news-qwertz-camera-progress.

    In future, you can also resubscribe at https://fxtec.us19.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=adae1356e734fcdec77e6255f&id=9a393a9003.
