There are a couple of new exciting deals for filmmakers available. We selected the best ten offers of filmmaking gear from our partners’ online shops for this week. Including Fujinon and Canon lenses, Zylight’s lights, Zhiyun-Tech Crane V2, Apple Macbook and more.
I went through the current deals on our partners’ websites and selected the top 10 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 a couple of deals from our European partner CVP. By shopping at our affiliate 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 10 deals for filmmakers:
B&H: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens – $100 Discount
You can’t go wrong with the Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM. This little and lightweight lens won’t take much space in your bag and is, to date, one of my favorite autofocus lenses from Canon. The fast f/1.4 aperture is perfect for low light situations, or when you want to isolate your subject with that creamy background.

B&H: Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 – $250 Discount
If you are looking for a small handheld gimbal to use with your DSLR, the Zhiyun-Tech Crane V2 is still a solid competitor. With a maximum payload of 3.2Kg, you can nearly fly every mirrorless and DSLR in the market with the Crane V2. The Crane runs on and comes with two 26500 batteries which feature a 12- to 18-hour runtime. Everything comes in a nice carry case, ready for your next shoot.

B&H: Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR Camera with 18-135mm Lens and Inkjet Printer Kit – $300 Discount
Indeed, the T7i is not Canon’s most potent DSLR camera out there. If you are starting out or in need for a camera to shoot for fun, it’s a competent camera (I miss the T2i’s days sometimes). It features a 24.2MP sensor, a flip-out screen, and one of the best autofocus you can get: Canon’s Dual Pixel AF. The T7i can record in 1080P up to 60 frames per second, and Movie Electronic IS is also featured to stabilize your footages across five axes for smoother, steadier recording when shooting handheld. This kit includes an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens and a Canon PIXMA PRO-100 printer to print your best shots wirelessly.
