Want to give your camera rig a speed boost? One of the most popular ways to do that (with tools) is with the Metabones Speed Booster XL, which will allow you to increase your maximum aperture by a full stop and increase MTF to boost the optical performance potential of your lens. If you've been waiting to get your hands on one, you can get it for $50 right now.
If you're in the market for a good action cam, you might want to check out the DJI Osmo. It features 4K60fps, dual screens, RockSteady stabilization, 8x slow motion, and is waterproof at up to about 36 feet. Its price has always been comparable to that of its GoPro HERO counterpart at around $375 to $400, but you can get an Osmo right now for around $270 at either Adorama or Amazon. (Fun fact: Adorama will throw in some free Polar Pro ND filters, too.)
The SmallHD FOCUS OLED Monitor may not have the bit depth or screen size as its more powerful (and expensive) brethren, but it still has a lot to offer, including a 5.5" 1080p OLED touchscreen and high-res Scopes, Waveform, False Color, Focus Peaking, and real-time 3D LUTs. And the price is right for filmmakers looking to save some money. Get it now for around $300, down from $429.
If you're looking to dabble in some 360 filmmaking, you might want to start out with a camera that is powerful yet inexpensive. The $400 Rylo 360 Camera which features 5.8K resolution, in-camera stabilization, and an app that lets you view, edit, and share your 360 videos, is on sale right now for $200.
The Litepanels Astra 6X Bi-Color LED panel is a bright, color-accurate white light that features CRI/TLCI of 98, Active and Passive cooling modes, fully-adjustable Daylight and Tungsten color temperature from 3200K to 5600K, AC and battery power options, and are flicker-free at any frame rate. Adorama is offering a special deal on a Litepanels Astra 6X kit, which comes with a Flashpoint light stand, that saves you 17% on your purchase. Get it now for $825.
