We’ve got some super hot deals going on right now on our eBay store. The biggest deal is a brand new sealed in-box full warrantied Sony PMW-F3k 3-lens kit. This camera comes with the 85mm, 50mm, 35mm cinema lenses. We’re also throwing in a battery & a charger (Sony doesn’t include those in the camera package). This setup sells brand new for $18,000 we’re giving you a chance to nab it for $11,200. Why? It’s not a super popular model these days and we’re a small shop that can’t afford to have a big item like this collecting dust on our shelves.
We’ve also got a Sony Z7 camcorder, a Panasonic DVX100b, and a pair of ENG broadcast lenses listed. Visit our eBay store here.
