Product Tuesday: Final Cut Pro X, Time Capsules, Airport Extremes Receive Updates

Must be Tuesday, because Apple’s just released a deluge of products. First up is the hotly anticipated Final Cut Pro X, which was promised to hit by the end of June. It made it, along with its family that consists of Motion 5 and Compressor 4.

When looking at the price, keep in mind that this is a professional video editing suite:

“Final Cut Pro X is the biggest advance in Pro video editing since the original Final Cut Pro,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We have shown it to many of the world’s best Pro editors, and their jaws have dropped.”

Following the path set by Lion, Final Cut Pro X and its companion apps are only available via the Mac App Store. You can read a first-look by Macworld here.

More into hardware? We’ve got that, too, though it isn’t quite as revolutionary as the software. Apple has bumped the Time Capsule capacity to 2 TB and 3 TB, with prices going from $299.99 to $399.99, respectively. Still very expensive, but given that it does provide the easiest way to insure backups on a laptop, it might just be worth it to some.

The Airport Extreme has also been updated, though we aren’t quite sure what is new. The price remains the same at $179, but Apple hasn’t sent out a press release detailing what exactly is new. Keep an eye out here; as soon as Apple drops one, we’ll update you.

Also, it’s been heavily rumored that iOS 5 beta 2 will drop today… fairly big day for Apple releases, huh?
