With Black Friday nearly here,  when we are scouring around for the best Black Friday camera deals  we sometimes forget that actually some of the best cinema cameras are also given the Black Friday treatment. So you can really save a chuck of change on many deals on cinema cameras that can honestly help filmmakers have the upper hand when starting out their career or wanting to offer better visuals your their clients.

I've been incredibly lucky to have used some of the best cameras used in Hollywood productions from the likes of Arri and Sony - heck I even own my own Red cinema camera that was used to shoot The Hobbit. So I know a few things when it comes to cameras that are solely built for video production and I have searched the internet to bring you a list of deals that I generally believe are the best out there this Black Friday, and are only available from B&H.
