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 cameras from Panasonic, Nikon, Canon, and GoPro, tripod from Benro, Tascam audio recorder and more.
I went through the current deals on our partners’ websites and 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: Panasonic Lumix G85 with 12-60mm & 45-200mm Lenses Kit – $648 Discount
I need to start this week’s selection with this very nice deal for the Lumix G85 mirrorless camera. It is a versatile Micro Four Thirds camera capable of UHD 4K video recording at up to 30fps (100Mbps in H.264). Its 16MP MOS sensor features 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization. This IS system pairs with select lens image stabilization systems for Dual I.S.
