Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
It seems that the BMPCC is finally arriving - in limited quantities to Instagram and Twitter accounts near you.

Speaking of Blackmagic, their new page for the Production Camera 4K looks an awful lot like an Apple product page (and that's not necessarily a bad thing!) Order yours for $3,995...

Venture Capitalist Who Suggested There Should Be Texting in Movie Theaters Writes "Another 1000 Words Proving [He's] an Asshole" | IndieWire
After saying he's being misunderstood (thinking like this is just what venture capitalists do!), he defends the first attack by reiterating that he wants to segregate movie audiences into people addicted to their Twitter feed and, well, people who can go two hours without a tweet.
