Cameras are known to receive significant discounts on Black Friday, making it the perfect time to invest in your dream model. Whether you are looking to upgrade from an existing camera or you are entirely new to the photography game, Black Friday should offer something for everyone.

Below we have assembled some of the best deals for you to make a note of ahead of the big day. These deals not only offer you the chance to save hundreds on a camera you were already interested in, but they also provide opportunities to potentially buy a camera that was previously out of your price range.

DSLR Cameras

Boasting high-quality sensors and the ability to adjust almost every setting imaginable, DSLR cameras are a fantastic choice for anyone looking to take their photography seriously. DSLR cameras also feature the ability to change lens kits on the fly, giving you an unprecedented amount of control over your photography, compared to simple point-and-shoot cameras.

Mirrorless Cameras

Mirrorless cameras have become major competition for DSLR cameras in recent years, with many of the high-end models offering comparable specs to their DSLR counterparts, but in a more compact form factor. This has made mirrorless cameras excellent options for travel photographers, as well as general photography enthusiasts looking for high-end performance as well as portability.

Things to consider when buying a camera

Choosing a camera isn’t easy, and for this reason, it is important that you figure out exactly what you need beforehand to help streamline the process. Doing so will allow you to eliminate around 90% of what’s available right off the bat, making the whole task a lot less daunting.

To figure out what you need, you should first consider the types of photos you will be shooting. For example, if you are going to be traveling a lot and taking photos predominantly outside, you will probably need something that offers a decent level of portability, such as a mirrorless camera. On the other hand, if you are a studio photographer, then portability probably isn’t going to be an issue, making a DSLR a more viable option.

Once you have established the type of camera you need, you can then think about the more technical aspects of the camera. Again, this involves thinking about the kind of photos you will be shooting. Action photography, for example, is going to require a camera that offers super-fast shutter speeds. Otherwise, any image you capture will most likely be blurred. If, however, you are more interested in taking photos of static objects, then fast shutter speeds are less important.

You will also want to consider the type of sensor being used on the camera, as well as how many megapixels it has. If you are having your images blown up to large sizes, such as for a billboard, you will most likely need a full-frame sensor and a high number of megapixels. Alternatively, if your images are only going to be viewed on a smartphone, you will probably be able to get away with using a crop sensor, and the number of megapixels will be less important.
