SmallHD's B-Stock Sale is in full swing. What's "B-Stock"? Well, it's basically all of the gear that doesn't quite meet the company's quality control standards and is therefore sold at a discount. There are a lot of items that are worth taking a look at, but one that really caught our eye was the 502 on-camera monitor. The 1920x1080 5" monitor is daylight viewable, has 1000 nits of brightness, and has SDI and HDMI input/output. It usually sells for $999 but you can get it for $300 less during the B-Stock Sale.
Gear is usually cheaper when you bundle, which is why it might be a good idea to get the Teradek Ace 500 TX and RX set. This transmitter/receiver duo supports 1080p60 wireless video with less than 1ms of delay, has a 500' wireless range, HDMI input/output, as well as Ace, Bolt 500, XT, LT support. Get them both for $999, which saves you $100.
No, you're not having deja vu...we've featured the Litepanels Astra 6X on our Deals of the Week before, but this time, Adorama is throwing a 9.5' Flashpoint Pro light stand in along with the heavily discounted LED panel. The Astra 6X is 50% brighter than its predecessor and features high CRI (Daylight 95, Tungsten 98) and quality, surface mount LEDs that pair with custom optics. You can purchase this bundle for $935, which saves you a cool $325.
