There are a couple of interesting new offers for available filmmakers. We have selected for this week the best 10 film material offers from our partners' online stores, including the Nikon Z 6, the Sony a6500, the Shogun Inferno, an iPad Pro, lights, storage and more.
I followed the current offers on the websites of our partners and selected the 10 best offers currently available, which I think may be interesting for you. Unfortunately, this week we have not found exceptional offers for filmmakers in Europe, but we will update this post in case of changes! By purchasing from our partners' stores, you are supporting cinema5D through our purchase links, as we receive a small affiliate commission upon completion of a purchase.
Now, let's take a look at the 10 best offers this week for the directors:
B & H: Nikon Z 6 with FTZ mounting adapter kit – $ 250 discount
I will start perhaps with the most interesting deal this week, which is the Nikon Z 6 full-frame mirrorless camera. This body is the least expensive all-rounder camera of the two new Nikon mirrorless cameras. It features a 24.5 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and records up to 4K UHD video in 30 fps in 8 bits internally and with N-log and 10 bit via HDMI output. The camera has an integrated 5-axis vibration reduction.
Lately Nikon has focused on the video quality of the cameras and the result is the imminent RAW video output via HDMI, which the Atomos Ninja V recorder can transform into ProRes RAW.
Also, in this kit you get a free FTZ adapter, which allows you to mount Nikon F lenses while maintaining the AF / AE functionality, a Sony XGB 32 GB Sony memory card and a Ruggard camera bag.

B & H: Sony 64GB Series M Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card Kit (2-Pack) – $ 28 Discount
This discounted kit includes two 64 GB SDXC M Series cards from Sony. They are UHS-II cards with two rows of pins. The maximum reading speed is 260 MB / s and the maximum write speed is 100 MB / s. What is relevant for us filmmakers is the minimum writing speed, which is – thanks to the U3 rating – 30 MB / s. This means that these cards will produce videos with a bitrate of 240 Mbps without problems. I am personally using this exact card also for the 400 Mbps All-Intra recording with my GH5 and I have never had a problem. The cards are water / dust / temp / UV / X-ray and magnet-proof. All in all, it's a very nice offer for its price.

This unit is supplied with a USB 3.0 cable with a standard USB Type-A connector, with two additional USB 3.0 Type-A ports.
