Black Friday Fantasies

by Hugh BrownstoneLeave a Comment

We may not be kids who have to have the latest NERF N-Strike Blaster or Star Wars R2-D2 Interactive Robotic Droid. But Black Friday can be a great opportunity for filmmakers to get the gear we need at lowest-of-the-year prices – and fantasize about the gear we can’t.

Yes, this is the time of year for some of the best prices on stuff we really need. You’ll find a pile of deals right here on planet5D starting on Monday.

But I want to talk fantasies.

Hold on, slow down: I’m talking about GEAR fantasies.

Tell us in the comments below what filmmaking and/or photography gear YOU would ask for if someone hit you up with a genuine Ollivanders wand and granted you the gear of your dreams.

And why.

Black Friday Fantasies wishlist image

Last year for me was all about 3-axis gimbals. This year my wish list is very different, as sensors and optics have made a quantum leap that I can see, especially as I've returned to favoring prime lenses – and I’ve already bought the DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K [B&H|Amazon].

And I want another Billingham 555.
