Predictions

So what do we expect to see this year, once the offers really start rolling in? Well, we think some of the best Black Friday camera deals in 2019 will come via the big-name brands. We’re expecting to see a selection of decent Black Friday DSLR deals from Canon and Nikon, in particular, throughout November.

The newly launched Nikon D3500, for example, should lead to some discounts on the Nikon D3400. Meanwhile, Canon UK has recently offered cashback on a number of models – including the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EOS 6D Mark II and Canon EOS 7D Mark II – giving a strong indication of the models it’s prepared to discount. We’d put our money on Black Friday camera deals on the EOS R and EOS RP and some PowerShot models too.

That said, in 2018 the best Black Friday camera deal by far came courtesy of Sony and Amazon, with the full-frame mirrorless Sony A7 and 28-70mm lens kit slashed to £509 after cashback. And there we also expect great deals on the Sony A7 II – which is a favorite model for Amazon to discount in its sales. These are great first cameras, but also perfect for those wanting to upgrade to one of the cheapest full-frame cameras around.

We also think the A7S II will be heavily discounted. And we’d expect to see savings on Sony’s compact cameras – including both point-and-shoot models like the Cyber-shot WX220, as well as more advanced models like the Cyber-shot RX100 III and RX10 III.

Finally, we predict that some of the most popular Black Friday camera deals will come from GoPro. The GoPro Hero 7 Black may well get discounted now that the Hero8 Black has hit the market  – but the older and excellent GoPro Hero 6 Black should be one that you can pick up for a tempting price.

(Amazon UK slashed the X-A5 plus an XC 15-45 lens to just £367.56 over Prime Day.) Again, B&H Photo, NewEgg and Walmart will also be good bets for great Black Friday mirrorless camera deals this year.

Tips and tricks

We’ll have all the best Black Friday camera, lens and accessory deals right here – so you can be sure you’re making a sound investment, and not buying a poorly specced model that your smartphone could beat hands down.

But even with the best black Friday camera deals, photography gear can still cost a lot of money. So it’s important you choose a model that’s right for your skill level and the sort of photography you want to do, not just your budget.

Here are some pro tips to help you make an informed decision over Black Friday.

How to get the best Black Friday camera deals

1. Know the type of camera you want
The most important question to ask yourself – apart from how much money you’re prepared to spend – is what do you want your camera for? Are you looking to do landscape photography? Sports? Portraits? Do you want lots of lenses? Is image quality more important or do you need an ultra portable model you can take on your holidays? Does it need to be waterproof?

These questions will help determine what type of camera you need. A compact camera, for example, is ideal for anyone after something small and easy to use. Manufacturers have had to fight back against the rise of the smartphone, and the market is rife with premium models that offer excellent image quality, longer zoom lenses and more control – as well as a wide range of auto modes.

If you’re looking to step up your photography, a DSLR or mirrorless camera – with their interchangeable lenses and advanced controls – will make a better choice. There are advantages and disadvantages to both formats (you can find out more about DSLRs vs mirrorless cameras elsewhere on the site), with Nikon and Canon ruling the DSLR roost; and Sony, Panasonic and Olympus all producing excellent mirrorless cameras.

2. Know the specs you need
Image quality depends on sensor size. That’s why DSLR and mirrorless cameras – which have much larger sensors – can produce far better quality images (especially in low light) than compact cameras, even though the resolution might be the same. Brush up on the specs you need for the sort of photography you’re intending to do, so that you can make the best decision on the day.

3. Look at what lenses are available
If you’re thinking about buying a DSLR or mirrorless camera, take a close look at the lens system. The likes of Canon and Nikon have a wide range of lenses at different price points for you to buy into, but not all systems have the same variety.

4. Do you want 4K video?
While 4K video is rapidly becoming the norm, you still see a lot of DSLRs that can only shoot Full HD (1080p) footage – and we expect to see Black Friday camera deals on many of these models.

But before you disregard a Full HD model, first consider that a DSLR or mirrorless camera will probably capture better Full HD video footage than a compact camera with a smaller sensor shooting 4K. Also, just because a camera has 4K, it might be only up to 15p – making it jerky; you want at least 24/30p – while some DSLR and mirrorless cameras only offer cropped 4K, which makes shooting wide-angle footage tricky.

5. Do your homework on price
The best way to avoid falling for a bad deal is to know the value of what you’re buying – and its normal retail price. We know retailers sometimes inflate prices before Black Friday to make discounts look bigger, but if you know the normal price, you can make a sound judgement on how good a deal really is. Online price-comparison shopping sites like PriceGrabber.com can help here.

6. Make a list
It’s easy to become carried away in the shopping frenzy and make impulse purchases. A good way to stay focused is to create a list of items you might want to buy on Black Friday. Read the reviews, and educate yourself on the specs – that way you’ll be better placed to tell the difference between good and bad deals (and good and bad versions of that product, too).

7. Check whether you can get cashback
A lot of debit and credit cards offer cashback on purchases, so take a look at the fine print on yours. Many credit cards also come with benefits like free warranties, return protection and sale price protection – which are worth thinking about.

8. Sign up for Amazon Prime
There are a lot of advantages to having an Amazon Prime membership over Black Friday – not least an exclusive 30-minute access period to all Amazon Lightening Deals. An Amazon Prime subscription will set you back £79/$99 per year, but if you’re not sold on committing to Prime up, don’t worry. You can also get access to the same Black Friday benefits by signing up for a 30-day free trial. You can cancel any time before the 30 days with no strings attached.

9. Keep the receipts
If for any reason you’re not happy with your new camera, make sure you’ve got the receipts to hand so you can return it easily. It’s a good idea to check the refund policies of any retailer before you part with your cash, too – one stinger to watch out for is free returns not being offered.
