As every year, November is the month of special offers and discounts. We prepared a quick roundup of the best deals for filmmakers currently offered by B&H, because we think they are relevant to our audience. You can support cinema5D by buying through the links of our sponsors.
Dracast LED1000 Silver Series Bi-color Light
The Dracast LED1000 Bi-Color Light with V-mount adapter has a nice discount. There is one on the 30W version too, but the best deal available goes with the stronger 60W version that offers 70% off.
Was: $795.00 Now: $344.50 (Savings: $450.50)
Although we now have the Panasonic GH5, the GH4 is still a very affordable alternative for beginning shooters. Now available at a discounted bundle with the RODE VideoMic for a lot less.
Was: $1,497.99 Now: $897.99 (Savings: $600.00)
The Panasonic G7 is an even cheaper camera than the GH4, but still offers good video quality in 4K. It is now on sale as a bundle with the stabilized Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II Lens.
Was: $797.99 Now: $497.99 (Savings: $300.00)
Who needs gimbals? A mechanical stabilizer from the brand “Steadicam”, for small cameras up to 2.27kg (5lbs) is also on sale.
Was: $599. 00 Now: $199.00 (Savings: $400.00)

Here’s the popular 3-axis gimbal stabilizer from Zhiyun-tech. It can carry cameras up to 1.8kg (3.9lbs). The sale is not huge, but there’s a worthwhile discount.
Was: $649. 00 Now: $479.00 (Savings: $170.00)
Sony a6300 Kit with 16-50mm and 55-210mm Lenses
The Sony a6300 mirrorless camera in a bundle with the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens, the 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS Lens, a 64GB SanDisk memory card, an extra battery and a shoulder bag comes at an interesting price. While the image quality is amazing, keep in mind that the a6300 has the overheating issue which usually limits your recordings to under 3 minutes. It’s worth eyeballing the Sony a6500 that comes without overheating.
Was: $1,346. 00 Now: $996.00 (Savings: $350.00)
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens
This popular zoom lens from Canon (EF mount) is now slightly cheaper as well, so it deserves a place in this list.
Was: $1,899. 00 Now: $1,699.00 (Savings: $200.00)
Apple New Macbook Pro (Without Touchbar)
And here’s a limited time offer on the entry level Apple Macbook Pro (without touchbar) with a significant discount.

Was: $349.95 Now: $289.95 (Savings: $60.00)
