News from Here & There

Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI 5" Monitor Review
Michael Reichmann of The Luminous Landscape reviews the new Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI 5" Monitor:
If you're a camcorder or DSLR user shooting video you likely already know of and understand the advantages of a small HDMI monitor. The LCD50 will be found attractive because of its small size and low weight, its modest price – just over $500 at B&H – and range of attractive features.

Redrock Micro NANO Running Man Rig Review
Eric Koretz at The Image Hunter reviews the new light-weight Running Man rigs from Redrock:
The video definitely wouldn’t have been as stable if I didn’t have that Nano. The Running Man handheld rig is quick to build, stable when using and easy to pack away. It fills a need that is surprisingly hard to create in hand held rigs.

Industrial Light & Magic and Pixar in Collusion
No, that's not a new movie. It's come to light that Pixar and ILM had an agreement not to steal each others employees. They agreed to three things:
  1. No cold calling of each other’s employees. 
  2. Notification when making an offer to an employee of the other firm. 
  3. No counteroffer above the initial offer when offering a position to the other company’s employee.

True Grit
The Coen Brothers version of True Grit opens today. I'm a fan of the original movie, which starred John Wayne, but am also looking forward to the new version. The brothers claim that they have never seen the movie, and that theirs is based on the original book. It will be interesting to see how the new movie compares; the trailer for the movie has scenes so similar to the original, it almost looks like a remake.
You can read an interview with the brothers;
