If you’re a full frame camera aficionado, Black Friday has some amazing deals in store for you. You can save up to 43% on some of the best cameras on the planet. Sony, Canon, and Nikon have all released deals on some of their full frame cameras.

Some people may be wondering, what’s so special about full frame cameras? Full frame cameras come with a 36 x 24mm sensor that has a 2.5 times larger surface area than the APS-C sensor found in most DSLR and mirrorless cameras. A larger sensor gathers more light and generally produces a higher image quality, especially in difficult conditions.

We don’t know when these deals will end. It’s possible that some of them will continue through Cyber Monday, although we don’t know which ones will.

How to choose a full frame camera

The biggest decision you will need to make is whether you want a mirrorless or DSLR full frame camera. The answer will depend on the applications you will be using the camera for. Mirrorless cameras use contrast detection for focus, since they can’t split the light from the mirror. As a result, they are slower at latching onto moving objects. As a result, DSLRs are usually better if you are using the camera for sports photography.

The main benefits of a mirrorless camera are the much smaller size and better image preview accuracy. When you adjust the ISO settings and aperture on a DSLR, the viewfinder won’t change to reflect this. A mirrorless camera can remove a lot of the guesswork when setting up your shot.

    Overall, the Black Friday sales on full frame cameras are impressive this year. Some models like the Sony a9 have been reduced by $1000. Now is a great opportunity to try a mirrorless full frame camera if you haven’t tried one before.
