Black Friday and Cyber Monday are of course a great time to get a gift for the filmmaker in your life or even to just snag a great price for a piece of gear you've been considering for a while and are finally ready to make the leap on. (Psst... have you looked at our gift guide yet?)

Aputure is hosting a holiday party next Tuesday, Dec. 14, starting at 10 a.m. PT, to share a bunch of helpful info for filmmakers and to roll out some great (temporary) prices on some of their newest kits.

The holiday party is usually a good time to get a chance to know the folks behind some of your favorite products.

While hosted by Aputure, it's cohosted with battery maker Core SWX, Deity Microphones, DoP Choice, Lightbridge, and Matthews. This year adds Atlas Lense Co and Zeiss to the lineup of cohosts.


So far what we are hearing is two big things. There will be $15K in product giveaways to attendees, and a few new product releases.

The biggest thing we're hoping to hear is ordering info and a ship date on the LS 1200d Pro, which is probably a bit pricey as a Christmas gift, but we know is something a lot of filmmakers are excited to add to their lineups in the new year.
