There are various great Black Friday offers still left for photographers, many all of them carry over to Cyber Monday. Here are some of the ones that stand out to me.
KEH: Entire Shop 10% Off
Until November 29 on 11: 59pm ET, everything in KEH’s catalog is 10% off. KEH is one of my favorite stores regarding used photography equipment, along with very reasonable prices (often even cheaper than eBay) plus a great return policy. Simply because they sell used equipment, you are taking 10% off what are already low prices. Black Fri shoppers on a budget should think twice about them.
Fuji GFX 50R: Was $4500, Now $3000
One of the best deals this year comes from Fuji, with a monster discount on a 50-megapixel medium file format camera. The Fuji GFX 50R normally sells regarding $4500 but is $3000 today. While we do have some issues with the camera from an ergonomics standpoint (see the full review ), the image quality is out of this world. A medium format digital camera for $3000 is pretty remarkable.
Nikon Z5: $1000
The Nikon Z5 has bought at $1000 a couple of times in the past, but now that camera gear is certainly trending more expensive, it’s exciting to see the deal back. This is a very good full-frame mirrorless camera that punches far above its price tag (which is normally $1400). To put it yet another way, you’ll end up with better image quality by picking the particular Nikon Z5 with some excellent lenses compared to a more expensive camera like the Nikon Z6 II with cheap cup.
Olympus: Sharp Discounts on Newest Cameras
Some of the top discounts this Black Friday and Cyber Monday are usually from Olympus, which has place almost all of its newer digital cameras on sale. The biggest discount is for the pro-grade E-M1X: usually $3000, now $1700. But the E-M1 III and E-M5 III also have heavy discount rates. Here are a handful of the best, even though I recommend clicking on different zoom lens configurations to see if a different deal works better for you:
Sony A7R IIIA and IVA: $500-800 Off
Sony has its own good discounts across a lot of their mirrorless cameras plus lenses, but the two that will stand out the most are the A7R IIIA and A7R IVA (the slightly newer variations of the A7R III and IV). These cameras are usually $2800 and $3500 respectively; now they’re $2000 plus $3000. If you’ve been awaiting a good deal on a high-resolution full-frame camera, these are very impressive sales. There are also some good lens discounts at the moment, including $400 off the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2. 8.
Atomos Ninja V and V+: Strong Discounts
If you’ve wanted to record movie over HDMI on your camera, the steep prices of external recorders may have changed you away. But nowadays Black Friday deals may be enough to make it worthwhile. Atomos has put most of their own equipment on sale for some excellent prices, from the basic Atomos Ninja V (normally $650, now $500) to their expensive 8K-capable Ninja V+ with a fast SSD (normally $2250, now $1500).
Fuji X-T3: $400 Off, Now $1100
One of our all-time favorite APS-C sensor cameras could be the Fuji X-T3. It’s usually a pretty pricey camera in $1500, but even after that is worth the money if you need a great travel camera. At $1100, it’s an amazing deal. (See our full Fuji X-T3 review . )
Pentax K-1 II and K-3 III: $300 Off
The 36-megapixel full-frame Pentax K-1 Mark II is currently $1700, compared to the typical price of $2000. This is an excellent deal for a high-end digital camera if you’re considering the Pentax environment. The high-FPS aps-c Pentax K-3 III also has the $300 discount when bought with a battery grip, getting its price down to $2000.
Canon EOS R: Now $1600
Canon didn’t move as strong on Dark Friday / Cyber Mon deals this year as some of the other companies, but they do have an excellent $300-off deal on the first EOS R – plus some nice accessories like a Rode microphone – to make it $1600. (And when the camera very first came out, it was $2300, and this is a bigger deal than it may seem at first glance. ) Although the Canon EOS R3, R5, and R6 have been attaining the headlines recently, the normal EOS R is still an excellent camera. See our review here .
Nikon 500mm f/5. 6 PF: Inside Stock and $300 Off
One of the most appealing Nikon lenses in recent years has been the 500mm f/5. 6 PF, a lightweight telephoto prime made for sports and wildlife photography needs. It had been almost impossible to find in share for about a year after its release, and even since then, its availability has been sporadic. Today, it’s not only in stock but also on sale. The lens is selling for $3300, down from the usual $3600.
Apple Gear: Up to $200 Off Mac-book Air
This year, Apple’s discounts are generally in the $50-150 range, but they can sell one specific configuration of the excellent late-2020 MacBook Surroundings for $200 off. It is the 512GB version with 8GB of RAM in silver, which normally costs $1500 but is $1300 today. (For whatever reason, any other configuration of storage space, RAM MEMORY, or color will get a person $150 off at best). I bought a variation of this particular computer a few months ago and contemplate it a nearly perfect traveling laptop.
