JVC HD110U arrives (HD100U version 1.0.1?)

Please note, this blog has been archived and now lives at

Minor story, but worth noting that JVC has announced the HD110U HDV camera. As best as I can tell, it's not much more than a software update for the existing HD100U. I really hope that's not the case, or else there are sure to be some annoyed HD100U owners out there.

I know there's not much incentive for manufacturers to add features to hardware they've already sold, but it does bug me when something that could be delivered as a firmware update becomes a whole new product. I'm rather suspicious that this was largely the case with the DVX-100/A/B, and plenty of other cameras. I hope that mentality changes as the Camera/Computer wall continues to collapse.
