Black Friday is approaching - this year it falls on November 24 - and as usual, various bargain opportunities are piling up. Many manufacturers and retailers are taking the opportunity to offer interesting special deals, sometimes even in the run-up to Friday. It is therefore worth keeping your eyes open during these days, as you might find offers for purchases you were planning anyway - a lot of camera accessories are on offer at a lower price, as are some cameras and software.
We are also compiling special offers for filmmakers and photographers for you here one by one (no claim to completeness). We start with offers from DJI (up to 30% off), lenses from DZOfilm, software from AVID, gimbals from Zhiyun, wireless systems from Hollyland, monitor/recorder accessories from Atomos and laptops from Asus.
As always, the special offers are usually available from the various German (specialist) retailers such as Marcotec, Videodata or Teltec or online from the manufacturers themselves.
The offers listed here are without guarantee. We do not earn money from any of the Black Friday or cashback offers listed here - this is purely a reader service.
Before making a purchase, it is advisable to check whether the respective discount offer is actually better than the cheapest street price. Particularly in the case of manufacturer offers, the list prices are usually quoted for comparison - not necessarily meaningful for older products. As some offers are stock clearance sales, some products may sell out quickly; availability is not guaranteed. You should also check whether the deal conditions for foreign manufacturers apply without restriction to orders from Germany and how much postage / customs duty is added in each case. The offer may also be available from German retailers.
