Anyone know when the camera kit will be available in stores? I could order one, but if it's going to be available this week I guess I'll just wait. Unfortunately, on all the sites I've checked I haven't seen any availability dates.

I was at the NYC SoHo store yesterday and they did not have them. They also remarked that the other three NYC stores also did not have them.

Poop.

I'll be staying tuned this week for sure.

Neither BB or The Apple Store in north Atlanta had them or knew anything about when they were coming in.

yeah my last few calls to the GA stores all came up with no one having any idea when they will come in..

A little annoying..

I'm going to try and be at BB when they open on Friday. Probably optimistic but maybe the new IPad and the the new camera connector will show up together.

The Apple Store here in Los Angeles (Beverly Center) got some in today. I bought one of the 8 they received.

I called the 5th Ave. store here in NYC earlier today and they still haven't received them. I'll just check back later in the week, maybe Wednesday or Thursday.

I'm not in a huge hurry, just need it w/in a few weeks.

I called the Apple store at perimiter mall in Atlanta, they do not have any or know when they are coming in. I'm hopping they would have it by Friday. The Atlanta Photography meet up is having a big meet up on Sunday and I'd love to bring my iPad and transfer picture I took that day. I'm sure the models will love this....:D

I'm starting to think I should just go to one of the stores and if they have it -- great, if not -- not the end of the world and I'll go back another day. I wonder why NYC locations haven't received them yet.

Been living here for less than a month and I already sound like a snob. :-/

I went to the Apple Store in Otay Ranch (San Diego) today and the Apple employee told me that she didn't have them in stock, and didn't have a clue as to when they would be getting them. She was guessing that they would be available on Friday, but was uncertain.

From the sounds of it, the stores are hit and miss. I guess I'll just keep trying back and hope to pick one up by this Friday when my 3G arrives. I don't want to order from the website and wait another 3 weeks. I've waited long enough for the iPad....this has been the longest month of April EVER.

I was able to score one from the Cherry Creek store in CO. They had about 20 of them. Some of the employees didn't even know they had them in stock. I left with one, and even better, I did not lose a finger leaving the mall.

Picked one up at Orland Park, IL Apple Store today. They only had 3 left, and just got them in today. The employee I purchased it from didn't know they had them yet, and said it was the first one he saw.

Went by the 14th Street store in NYC this morning with no luck. Anyone able to spot one in NYC today. The ship times are crazy on this so I would love to find it in a store.

I am going to best buy this weekend to see if they have any. Really need one before our 9 day trip to Disney World on May 22nd. Last year the sd card in our camera decided to die a couple days before the end of our trip... we lost hundreds of pictures. I plan on using this to "dump" pictures to the iPad every night when we get back to our resort.

Is bestbuy supposed to carry the connection kit?

I have checked with the soho apple store in nyc and they don't have it in stock either.

walked by the soho store again and popped in to try my luck. Did not have it in stock. The lady said most likely by this weekend for the ipad 3g launch.

Damn, I was hoping to have an excuse to hop on the subway and hit up one of the NYC stores on my day off tomorrow to pick up a camera kit. I'd love to get one before our next home stand but it's not looking that way. :(

I'll try calling one of the stores tomorrow just in case. One could hope.

I just called the Apple store in Victoria Gardens and they still haven't received them. They are hoping that they arrive tomorrow along with the iPad 3G. I will be calling them again to see if they have any.

I picked one up. There are at least 30 in stock in the Soho store. However, I did see someone just buy 4 at once.

I was in the Ft Lauderdale Galleria store this afternoon and they had them in the back, employee didn't know they even had them at all, I think maybe they are trying to hold stock for the big 3G event Friday, ( just my opinion ). I wanted to go ahead and try to get mine to avoid the crowd Friday so have been checking the Apple store and BB in the area for the last few days. BB still doesn't have them and wasn't sure if they would have any Friday. Galleria Apple has the Apple case and camera dock as of this afternoon about 3 pm, don't know how long those will last though!

Picked one up at the Walden galleria in Buffalo this evening. They just got a shipment and I was there! Also managed to snag an Apple case for the iPad. They were selling like hot cakes, within 20 or so minutes that I was there, they just had the one camera kit left. Wow.

Even worse - my order says "prepared for shipment" with a ship date of May 14 (in two weeks), with delivery on the 19th! and it cannot be canceled???

Same thing. The date is not accurate. Mine shipped today with a 5/4 delivery date. I'll return it to the Apple store within the 14 day return period.

Just bought a camera kit at the Apple store in the Christiana Mall, in Newark, Delaware. They had at least two dozen of them on the rack. And no sales tax :)

My order from apple.com listed 2-3 weeks to ship. Canceled the order while at the Apple store.

Simple solution buy the one at the physical apple store. Then when your shipped one arrives return it to the apple store with the receipt of the other one.

Now I'm a bit irked...went to the 5th Ave store yesterday (at roughly 3:30) and was told by an employee that they didn't have any in - that they hadn't arrived and that they had no idea when they would (I searched earlier but it was a mad house in there and couldn't get to too many of the displays easily). Called the UWS store and was told the same, so ordered it.

As I want to give it a test run this weekend, I may zip down to UWS and double check...
