adorama had told me late december, then jan 15 and after that date slipped I canceled my pre-order. Helen - who posted above from adorama - replied to an email today giving me a very generic message:

Please note: This item is currently back-ordered by the manufacturer. Although we have no estimated time of arrival for this item, you can order it now and it will ship as soon as it arrives. Your card will only be charged once item is shipped.

Well, given Westcott is the source, Adorama (and Helen) are just passing on what they know. They can't do much about the situation. Westcott knows there is some demand, so all we can do is wait and see if they really fill it.

According to a message I just received from the purchasing department, it could be another whole month. I'm really sorry - but it is, as Waki said above, completely out of our hands.

ok, just checked today and now adorama is saying the in stock date is april 2014. That'll be about 7 months from when I originally tried to buy one! Still worth the wait if it's delivered and the quality is still good...

Just got another update. I had contacted fjwestcott - who is distributing these now - and they told me that it's probably going to be available sometime this summer, definitely not april.

If you are a DIY person, there are quite a few versions on the internet.

interestingly enough, i just got an email from midwest photo yesterday that they had the eyelighters in stock so i ordered one and canceled the order I had with adorama since November 2013. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow.

Let's just hope you don't get a case of eye liner instead.

i got mine yesterday. It's a very well made piece of equpment, comes with the light stand mount and a gig bag. Sets up and breaks down very quickly. Probably less than 3 minutes. Very ingenious in the way it's constructed and thought out.

worth the wait.

I've been waiting to see them available. Your info is good to know. I canceled my long standing order with Adorama some time ago. I'll look into getting one in the next few weeks if they are still around.

I think Larry Peters has used one once or twice. Given the delays, he may be the only one.

Nice photo......did you try to contrast between your normal set up and then using eyelighter? In the setup were you able to reduce setup soft boxes? Reduce number of lights? Or can the same result be obtained with conventional gear?

I am curious how users think it simplifies their work......

For me it doesn't reduce anything. It's just another look and tool. I can get the same eye reflection in Photoshop in 2 minutes but I love what it does to the chin and cheeks. Frankly I can bend a standard reflector and get close. I used 3 lights on this as is standard for me with and without the eyelighter
