B&H has the new Rokinon 10mm T3.1 cine lens for Canon, Sony and Micro Four Thirds mounts in stock and now shipping. The Nikon version is still on the pre-order list. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
The Zoom H4n has been the go-to external recorder since the whole HDSLR craze started. Zoom has recently announced a couple of new external audio recorders in recent months – with the Zoom H5 being the entry-level and more direct replacement for the H4n. B&H now has the Zoom H5 available for pre-order with availability set for July 28, 2014. You can find it here at B&H Photo.
B&H has the Tascam DR-60D XLR recorder for $189 (was $349). This appears to be the new price point for this powerful XLR recorder with 24v and 48v phantom power. Additionally, B&H includes a free copy of Red Giant PluralEyes 3 audio/video sync software (a $180 value alone). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
B&H has the Tascam DR-100mkII for $199 (reg. $299) now through March 27. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
This is one of the better handheld XLR recorders out there, one that I think is better than the Zoom H4n. You can read my comparison review between the Tascam DR-100mkII, Zoom H4n and Olympus LS100.
B&H has the Tascam DR-60D XLR recorder with the Rode NTG-1 shotgun mic for $499.99. Additionally, you get PluralEyes 3, a SD card, shock mount and XLR cable in the bundle. The NTG-1 mic alone is a $250 mic. It’s a great shotgun mic. It’s not as nice as the NTG-3; however, that’s a $700 mic. There’s quite a bit of value in this kit. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
B&H has the Bower 16mm T2.2 cine lens for $399 (reg. $499). The lens is available in a variety of mounts, including Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sony E-mount, Sony A-mount and several others. It has geared focus and iris rings with a de-clicked aperture. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
