Buying just one piece of gear is only the first step. For our “Deals of the Week,” we found three bundles to get you running instead of walking.
Finding a good bundle on sale can be the difference between getting a camera and being ready to shoot a full production. But finding the right collection of gear can be a challenge.
For our “Deals of the Week,” we found three options from the trifecta: image, audio, and lighting. These bundles will cover everything a production will need. We also have a really cool honorable mention from the Pacific Northwest.
BMPCC 6K Pro Complete Shooter’s Kit
The BMPCC 6K Pro is one of the best cameras on the market. Not because it has the best image of them all, but because of how affordable it is for what you get. You get BRAW, internal NDs, gyro data, and a 6K Super 35 sensor.
This kit pairs the BMPCC 6K Pro with a Sigma 18-35mm zoom lens, the BMPCC battery grip, the BMPCC 6K EVF, a mini-shotgun mic, a 500GB Angelbird AtomX SSDmini, a USB 3.1 to 2.5″ SATA III adapter cable, a 512GB CFast 2.0 card, a total of three L-Series type batteries, a dual charger, and a doctor’s-style bag to carry everything.
There’s also an external monitor for when you really need to rig things out.
Audio-Technica AT875R Location Recording Kit
Your image is only as good as your audio. What’s the rule of thumb? Good audio can save bad video, but no amount of good video can save bad audio. This is where Audio-Technica comes in with the Location Recording Kit. Put this in the hands of an experienced boom operator, and you’ll get amazing audio to sweeten in post-production.
This kit is designed as a complete microphone setup for location recording in budget film work and broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), and field production applications.
It features the Audio-Technica AT875R short shotgun microphone, a furry windshield, a universal shoe/pole shock mount, a pistol grip, an aluminum cabled boom pole, a boom pole bag, and short and long right-angled XLR cables to provide everything necessary for capturing crisp audio.
Nanlite PavoTube II 30X Light Kit
Finally, the one thing we need to complete our trifecta is lighting. For this week’s deals, we chose a tube light set. Tube lights are great because of their versatility. They can be used as practical lights in your composition, or as tools to light your scene.
The kit contains two Nanlite PavoTube II 30X tube lights with AC adapters, mounting clips, and a bag for storage and transport.
Each tube light outputs up to 746 lux at 3.3′ (5600K) and offers professional color, control, and power features to make it a valuable asset for anyone. It has an expansive CCT color range of 2700 to 12,000K to handle any ambient light situation or match other fixtures and full spectrum RGB that gives you access to millions of colors and hues to fit your requirements.
Fujifilm X-H2S Ultimate Bundle (Honorable Mention)
For our honorable mention, we return back to cameras for this Ultimate Bundle from Moment. This kit is minimalist but gives you all the tools you’ll need to get shooting portraiture, wildlife, or street videography. Perfect for content creators on the go, this kit comes with the incredible Fujifilm X-H2s, and a choice between the XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens or the XF 56mm F1.2 R Lens. All this is paired with the Moment CineBloom Diffusion Filter in the strength of your choice, a solid camera bag, and a new camera strap. We had the chance to test the X-H2s when it was first announced, and the combination of the sensor, internal ProRes, and Fuji’s signature film emulations, made this camera an absolute dream for hybrid shooters.
