Top Black Friday Deals for Filmmakers - Part 1: Cameras, FilmConvert, MZed

Our first Black friday deals post features interesting cameras from DJI, Canon, FUJIFILM, Nikon, Panasonic, Sony, and Z CAM. Additionally there are FilmConvert, and MZed Black Friday offers. This is the first out of three Black friday posts. In the next post we will take a look at lenses and computers.

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. Some offers are only available at american store B&H, some offers only at european store CVP, and some offers are available globaly 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.

This year we decided to divide the Black friday deals into three posts, which we will publish in the next days before friday November 29:

  1. Cameras, Drones, FilmConvert, MZed
  2. Lenses, Computers, Laptops, Tablets
  3. Gimbals, Tripods, Monitors, Wireless Video, …

Today’s post is the first out of three and it features only cameras, drones, FilmConvert, and MZed.

Now, let’s take a look at the top Black friday camera deals for filmmakers:

DJI Osmo Action – $100/€77 Discount

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.
