Fifteen months since I founded the company, nine months since the Kickstarter finished, three months since the estimated shipping date (sorry!), the first Vela One high speed flash has arrived from the factory and is sitting on my desk. And it's beautiful, and it works. Woo-hoo! The factory is now ramping up production, and should have the hundred Kickstarter units, plus dozens more for pre-orders ready to ship next week. I am locking down shipping addresses this weekend. The current plan is to ship in roughly the order that people backed the project. I will post an update early next week when I have a better idea of shipping dates.
Thanks everyone for your patience. It's been a long ride, but the end is in sight.
