Panasonic P2 Video Card Compatability


Hi all - hope this is the right place to post this...

I have been trying to find an answer to this problem from Apple people, so hopefully someone can help. Panasonic is releasing its HVX-200 camera this December, and it will be recording HD to Panasonic's P2 cards (which are flash memory PC cards). Ideally, one could record to the card, pop it into your Powerbook's PC card slot, and copy your files over into FCP. However, OS X does not yet recognize these cards (per panasonic):

"You should be able to do this eventually as Apple is aware of the OS situation and the P2 card. They are working on it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on who to contact at Apple to check the progress of this problem? While the camera's release is 2 months away, mac compatability with P2 cards will effect mine and others choices on whether or not to invest in apple products for editing/post work using these cameras...

Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
