Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 for $1495

According to the “Top Sellers” ranking in the B&H Mega Deal Zone, the #1 seller camera of this All-Star Game is the new condition Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 going for $1495.

This is a Super35 compact-ish interchangeable-lens camera, using the Canon EF mount, and as such, it is compatible with 200+ lenses. Certainly a smart choice considering there are millions and millions of EF lenses out there!

ALSO part of this All-Star game is another EF-mount video camera, the new condition Canon EOS C200B Cinema Body Only going for $1999. Note that is camera is non-returnable, so purchase only if 99.05% certain!

PS: these are the only “real” cameras I’ve found. And there’s good reason, because mainstream cameras, because of the whole pricing thing, rarely (if ever) participate in daily deals, so you won’t find them in the All-Star Game. The only cameras in the Camera sub-category of the sale are 13 variants of the Paper Shoot Paper Camera type things.
