Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


Friday the 24th of July 2009 Apple brought out Final Cut Pro 7 that was 6 weeks ago…July 29th AJA announce support for their KONA card V6.5 and to rub salt in the wound we now have a new version 7 which is Snow Leopard compatible.

I have emailed AJA regularly for the last 4 weeks asking them for an ETA for these drivers, I was told within 2 weeks and today sees the end of that 2 week timeline. As a customer of AJA and having paid £2500 for their HD box I think I and many others have been dealt a raw deal.

Their web site tells you to stick with FCS-2 until the new drivers are ready but companies like mine need to get to grips with Motion 4 etc and a 6 week delay is in my books totally unacceptable. I have various productions on hold waiting for these drivers.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
