A long time American tradition, Black Friday (November 23) and Cyber Monday (November 26) have become increasingly popular in Australia in recent years, offering a great opportunity for filmmakers to grab some great gear on a budget. This year is no exception, with discounts on cameras, software, computers, and more anticipated around the internet. Here’s a selection of the best deals. Stay tuned for more!
