There are a couple of new, interesting deals for filmmakers available. We have selected the best offers of filmmaking gear from our partners’ online shops for this week – including DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom drones, Sony a6500, Canon 5D Mark IV, DJI Osmo Action and Osmo Pocket, cine lenses and more.
I went through the current deals on our partners’ websites and have selected the best offers currently available, which I think could be interesting for you. First, there are B&H offers listed for our readers based in North and South America, and then there are a couple of deals from our European partner CVP. 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.
Now, let’s take a look at this week’s top deals for filmmakers:

B&H: DJI Osmo Action – $100 Discount
The DJI Osmo Action is still a relatively new product and it is the most serious contender to the GoPro. It is a very capable action camera with 4K 60fps video recording and brilliant stabilization. Even better then Hero7 Black’s HyperSmooth – here is our comparison of these two cameras. Make sure to also watch our Osmo Action review.

B&H: Zhiyun-Tech CRANE-M2 Gimbal – $70 Discount

This very fast manual focus lens covers full-frame sensors. It offers 86mm front filter thread and the aperture can be set between f/1.2 and f/16. The lens is quite heavy and bulky hence the build quality should be good.
