Gitzo Traveler Tripod Kit

The Gitzo Traveler Tripod Kit includes both the GT1545T Traveler Series 1 Tripod as well as the GH1382TQD Series 1 Traveler Center Ball Head. The carbon fiber tripod is lightweight and ultra-compact, featuring Traveler G-lock and a 180-deg. leg folding system that allows it to fold down to just 42.5cm. The ball head, which is the slimmest in Gitzo's pro tripod head range, features independent pan lock, smooth movement, and high-quality steel and aluminum construction. This thing usually retails for $1015 but you can get it now for only $600.

Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder

Zoom already caught lighting in a bottle with the H4n Handy Recorder, and the Pro version just builds upon an already great product. Utilizing the same preamps as the H5, the H4n Pro has an improved noise floor (-120 dBu EIN) and recording resolution (24-bit/96 kHz), as well as locking XLR ports and an updated design. The Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder is $30 off right now, which isn't a huge deal, but worth it if you were already in the market for one.

Nikon Z6 FX-Format Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)

Ready to jump on Nikon's Z train? Well, now might be a great time to do it since the Z6 FX-Format Mirrorless Camera, which features a 24.5MP Full-Frame BSI image sensor, 4K UHD at up to 30fps, 100-51,200 ISO (expandable to 204,800), and 273 on-sensor AF points, is on sale now for $1797, which is $200 off retail.

Adorama Deal of the Week

The Moza AirCross offers all of the features that mirrorless filmmakers want to see in a handheld gimbal. It's compact and lightweight. It's got a payload capacity of about 4lbs, universal quick-release plate, and a host of different shooting modes, including "Inception Mode", which allows the AirCross to rotate 360-degrees on the yaw axis. This unit usually retails for $349, but Adorama is running a special on it right now that saves you $150.
