As you know, B&H have been our trusted global retail and video sponsorship partner for many years, and will continue to be in the future. Partnering with a large retailer like B&H who sell every relevant brand in our industry makes us independent and “manufacturer agnostic”, it allows us to stay objective with our reviews.
However, for instance readers from Europe have pointed out that they would prefer to order from this continent due to the involved customs and duty fees that go along with ordering from B&H who are located in the US.
After months of preparation behind the scenes, we are very proud to announce that UK-based broadcast retailer CVP is our new European retail partner and video sponsor.
Whenever we report about one or more new products, links to both B&H and CVP will show up at the bottom of posts. Not only that, product names throughout the site are automatically linked to the appropriate product pages on both retailer’s sites – and the cool thing is, visitors from Europe will see only CVP links, and the rest of the world will have that same links pointing to B&H like before.
We hope that our European audience will value the integration of links to CVP, one of the leading European broadcast retailers, listing prices in both Euros and British Pounds on their site.
Please consider buying the products you learn about from cinema5D through the side-wide links to our sponsors B&H and CVP, who pay us a small commission for sales through links on our site. That’s what pays the bills for our site and authors, and at the same time enabling us to further develop the site to serve you even better. And last but not least, it keeps us independent from large individual manufacturers – independence in our reviews is our highest value.
As cinema5D is rapidly developing in different areas, we are also working on a Gear Guide that will serve as a map guiding through the ever-growing jungle of filmmaking products out there, with personal recommendations from the cinema5D team. This is a work in progress and we will announce when it’s ready in a separate post.
