Marshall Electronics, a manufacturer of LCD monitors for Broadcast, Studio, Television, and Production, introduces the world’s first camera-top portable field monitor with integrated HDMI loop-through.

This handy "all-in-one" solution bypasses the need for HDMI splitters, additional power sources and other requirements necessary to split the signal.
The V-LCD70XP-HDMIPT monitor includes composite and component inputs, HDMI pass-through, DSLR Ratio Adjustment, adjustable backlight and markers, HDMI Auto Color Space and Ratio detect, manual gamma adjustment, Image Flip, 1/4"-20 mounting on all sides, and a robust power switch.

Sachtler, a Vitec Group brand, announces that documentary filmmaker Ryan Christensen of Bristlecone Media has chosen Sachtler to support his Mono Lake Preservation project. Designed to replace the original slide show created to support the ongoing effort to protect the lake from excessive water diversions from the City of Los Angeles, this production will be housed in the theater in the Mono Lake committee Visitor Center in Lee Vining, California.

He chose to shoot with the Sony EX-1R and Canon 5D Mark II cameras, Sachtler’s Reporter 300H Lighting kit and the FSB 6 tripod. “When we were shooting Living Death Valley, we had a poorly designed tripod that didn’t offer smooth pans or tilts and our shots suffered from it. Without a smooth pan or tilt we were constantly missing shots.
