If you follow Fotodiox on YouTube, you know that they often have great deals on photography and video products, which can bring tremendous production value for frugal filmmakers looking to build their gear profile on a budget. But this time around, Bohus, the face before the company, has lost his mind. He’s got a sale going on right now which offers their Aputure VS-1 HD Field monitor, plus the attachment arm, starting at under $150. What?
When you’re shooting video, one of the most important tools you can add to your setup is an external monitor … it makes it easier for you to focus and check your framing. And you’ll see the difference an external monitor makes right away. – Bohus
The Flash Sale, which is happening until August 5th pertains to the Aputure VS-1 Monitor. Specs on this field monitor include:
Until next week it comes in two different packages …
Package 1 contains the Apurture VS-1 with sunshade, ballhead, and r/h plug, plus an 11″ rocker arm and cold shoe attachment for $130. That’s a steal considering the power arm itself is a quick $20 and the VS1 is $179. Package 2 adds not only the VS-1` and the 11″ rocker arm, but if you need a shoulder mount, you also get the WonderRig Elite shoulder system, complete with matte box sunshade and follow focus, a V-Mic external microphone, and monitor shade for $375. That’s nearly $150 off.
The Flash sale only lasts until August 5th, so head on over to Fotodox’s website here, for package 1, and here, for package 2, to strike while the iron is hot! And make sure you subscribe to their YouTube page!
