Black Friday best camera deals 2018

Black Friday has been and gone, but many of the discounts are still available. As always, it’s a case of sifting through the box-shifting to find the genuine bargains. On this page I’ve done the hard work for you and highlighted the best deals I’ve found on cameras and photography gear for the 2018 Holiday Season! PS – for my latest recommendations, also check out my Best Camera Guides!


Fujifilm’s X-T3 may be the latest and greatest X-series mirrorless camera (see my Fujifilm X-T3 review) but if you don’t need its industry-leading movie and burst shooting capabilities, the previous X-T2 may be everything you desire.

Amazon has the Fujifilm X-T2 body for $1099 ($500 off)

B&H has the Fujifilm X-T2 body for $1099 ($500 off)

Adorama has the Fujifilm X-T2 body for $1099 ($500 off)


Sony’s A6000 may have been replaced by the A6300 and A6500, but the original model still packs a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, a built-in viewfinder and confident autofocus with quick burst shooting. Now heavily discounted in a twin lens kit, it represents one of the best bargains for anyone wanting to get into mirrorless, especially if shooting active kids and pets on a budget.

Adorama has the Sony A6000 with the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses for $598 ($400 off) also has the Sony A6000 with the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses for $598 ($400 off)

Sony’s flagship A9 proved that mirrorless could not only shoot professional sports, but comfortably out-perform pro DSLR bodies. The full-frame A9 shoots faster at 20fps, is silent in operation, suffers from no viewfinder blackout, and to me represents the future of pro sports photography. has the Sony A9 body for $3498 ($1000 off)

B&H has the Sony A9 body for $3498 ($1000 off)

If you prefer resolution over speed, the A7r III remains one of the best cameras around, and being a Sony, it’ll also actually turn its hand to action too if you like. 42 Megapixels, great 4k video, dual card slots and one of the best batteries on a mirrorless camera. has the Sony A7r III body for $2798 ($400 off)

One of my favourite affordable DSLRs for vlogging and all-round photography is the Canon EOS 200D / Rebel SLR. It marries the holy trinity for vlogging – a flip-out-screen, mic input and great autofocus – but is also one of the cheapest interchangeable lens cameras with a large sensor and viewfinder.

If you prefer mirrorless, the EOS M50 is equally capable for vlogging and general-use, and again one of the most affordable points of entry.

Most compacts force you to choose between sensor size and zoom range, but Panasonic’s Lumix TZ100 packs both a decent quality 1in sensor AND a practical 25-250mm zoom, plus 4k and a viewfinder.

Adobe’s Creative Cloud is the ultimate software suite for creatives, including Photoshop, Premiere, Illustrator, Bridge and more. The full suite normally costs $599 for a 12 month subscription, but is now selling for $449.

B&H has a 12-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud for $449 ($150 off)
