Once exciting deals for filmmakers appear, we try to share these with you guys. We selected some of the best offers of filmmaking equipment from our partners’ online shops for this week – including Canon XC10, SmallHD FOCUS OLED, Panasonic GH5, Rokinon Cine lenses, FUJIFILM X-T3 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:
