This Week’s Top Deals for Filmmakers – SmallHD Monitor, Panasonic GX85, MacBook Pro 16" and More

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 a SmallHD monitor, a Manfrotto tripod, the Panasonic GX85, the Zoom H1n, the Sennheiser G4 wireless set, a MacBook Pro 16″ and more. Watch out – the first four deals expire today, on March 4th, 11:59 p.m. (EST time).

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. For this week, I have only found great deals on B&H, for our readers based in North and South America, and no deals on CVP, our European partner. B&H is mostly offering worldwide shipping, though. 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: Apple 16″ MacBook Pro (Late 2019, Space Gray) – $300 Discount

Last year, Apple launched the new MacBook Pro with 16″ (3072 x 1920 Retina) screen with thinner bezels, so the whole laptop body stays the same as the older 15.4″ laptops. Apple listened to their customers’ feedback and returned back to the physical Escape button and also finally ditched the butterfly keyboard. Overall, the new 16″ MacBook Pro received very positive feedback from the pros.

There is currently a time-limited discount on the new MacBook Pro 16″ models. I chose the following “middle” configuration: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i9 8-core CPU, 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM, 1TB SSD, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M GPU (4GB GDDR6). You can of course modify it and get your desired configuration after clicking the buy link.
