Filmmakers' Holiday Deals and Gifts Guide 2019 - Part Two

As we are getting close to the end of the year you are probably looking for the best gifts ideas and deals online – and the cinema5D team got you covered. We browsed through hundreds of offers to get you the best deals out there. These deals include offers from FilmConvert, Canon, Sound Devices, SanDisk, Panasonic, and so on, for every budget.


For this second part of the Holiday Sale and Gift Guide, I browsed the current deals on our partners’ websites and have selected the best offers currently available, which I think could be interesting for you. Some suggestions are only available at the US store B&H (yet they ship globally), others are only available at the European store CVP, and some are available globally with both our partners. By shopping at our partners’ stores, you are supporting cinema5D through our buy links, as we get a small affiliate commission when a purchase is completed (and it doesn’t cost you a cent more).
