JVC’s Newest Camera with Quicktime Support

Just a quick note. JVC apparently announced the GY-HM100 at the FCPUG Supermeet at Macworld last night. The camera looks to record XDCAM-EX inside Quicktime to SD cards. This would mean going directly from camera to post with no transcoding/re-wrapping.

Scott Simmons has some details from JVC’s Japanese site. We should be hearing more today.

Update (8:56am CST): The link is up on JVC’s English site. [via editblog]

Apple Leaving Macworld after 2009

Apple has announced 2009 will be its last year at Macworld. I’m surprised, yet not at the same time.

Apple is reaching more people in more ways than ever before, so like many companies, trade shows have become a very minor part of how Apple reaches its customers.

This follows the trend Apple started (I believe) when they pulled out of NAB 2007. I will be interested to see what Macworld will become without a Stevenote ((This we’ll actually see this year as Phil Schiller wil be delivering the keynote.)) or Apple booth.
