10 Best Deals Under $300 from B&H for 4th of July

To celebrate the 4th of July, B&H currently offers many deals on all kinds of filmmaking equipment. We picked the ten best deals under $300 with massive savings of up to $350! As a gentle reminder, by buying products from B&H found in this list, you support our CineD site, and we are very thankful for that! Most products fall under “a limited time offer” or while supplies last, so let’s discover what we found!

Like every year, the 4th of July, also known as Independence Day, is a great moment, especially for American filmmakers, to get their hands on new equipment with a great deal. If you missed it, we already reported about MZed’s incredible 4th of July sale with 40% off the annual subscription and most courses, and this time, it’s our partner B&H who is joining the party.

Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp – $28 ($12.79 Off)

Let’s start with a helpful tool that everybody should have in their toolkit: the Manfrotto 035RL. This clamp is made entirely out of aluminum, is lightweight, and you can attach nearly anything to it: cameras, lights, umbrellas, hooks, shelves, other Super Clamps, and so on. This one comes with a standard stud with a 1/4″-20 threaded end.

You can attach the Super Clamp to any tube from 0.5″ to 2.1″ but also to flat surfaces, thanks to the removable wedge insert. You never have enough of these clamps, and it’s hard to count how many times they saved my shoots (and created shitty rigs, too).

SanDisk 512GB Extreme UHS-I microSDXC Card – $49.99 ($63 Off)

If you’re looking for a high-capacity, high-speed, and reliable microSD card, this SanDisk 512GB Extreme UHS-I microSDXC memory card might be the perfect choice. This card has a V30 rating, guaranteeing minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. Also, it supports the U3 standard, which guarantees minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. Read speeds are supported up to 190 MB/s, and write speeds max out at 130 MB/s.

Sony MDR-7506 – $89.99 ($10 Off)

This one is not a huge deal; however, it’s sporadic for industry-standard products to have rebates. One of the first things I bought in film school was a set of Sony MDR-7506 headphones; a decade later, they’re still going strong. These are simply some of the best headphones you can get, with a very neutral sound, a comfy fitting, and robust construction.

LEE Filters 280R-12 Black Foil – $29 ($15 Off)

Black Foil, also called the LEE Filters 280R-12, is similar to a multi-tool, clamps, headphones, and so on: you simply must have a roll with you on set. If you’ve never used/heard of it, it is a flexible matte black, heavy-gauge foil that is malleable, form-holding, and heat resistant. It is used to control lighting fixtures’ light spill and to create DIY snoots/barndoors.

Vibesta Peragos RGBWW Disc 30C 2-Light Kit – $229 ($350 Off)

The Vibesta Peragos Disc 30C is a compact 6.3″ RGBWW disc with decent light output and a good quality of light that doesn’t take up a lot of space in a lighting kit. I have had one of these Peragos 30C in my lighting kit for a couple of years that I use as an accent light, and it always does an excellent job and is easy to hide. You can power it via AA batteries or Sony NP-F style batteries.

This kit includes 2 Peragos RGBWW 6.3″ Disc 30Cs, each with an AC adapter and mains cables. A hard case is provided for storage and transport.

Samsung 2TB T7 Portable SSD – $114.99 ($45 Off)

The Samsung T7 portable SSD is a compact drive entirely made of aluminum, with dimensions of 3.3 x 2.2 x 0.3″ / 8.4 x 5.6 x 0.8 cm for a weight of 60g/0.13 lb. The T7 features a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, 256-bit AES encryption, and read/write speeds of up to 1050 MB/s and 1000 MB/s, respectively. I have plenty of these lightweight drives, and this is the kind of portable drive you never have enough of.

This stand has three sections and two risers with a maximum height of 6.5’/2m. The stand has a combo 5/8″ Baby top stud and one 1/8″ Junior receiver.
