With the upcoming Black Friday sales season set to swing into motion, filmmakers have been given an extra incentive to invest.
Amazon recently launched its Certified Refurbished Store where people can buy digital equipment from cameras through to computers for hundreds of dollars off their retail price. Refurbished products sold on Amazon are also guaranteed to work, and look like new with a 90-day limited warranty.
For filmmakers looking to upgrade their existing kit on a budget, there are a number of accessories available including camera lenses, tripods as well as Apple MacBook Pros, but stocks are extremely limited and items could be sold out before the weekend as Black Friday deals kick off. At the time of writing, just 1 Apple MacBook Air remained for sale.
Last year, nearly $4.5 billion was spent online on Black Friday and Thanksgiving with some retailers offering discounts from 40% to 95%. This year, there are a host of deals available on gadgets where filmmakers can benefit from huge discounts as we approach the holiday season.
