The best camera deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017

So what is Black Friday?

Black Friday is an annual event that’s become the biggest shopping day of the year. It’s the first Friday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, and this year it falls on November 24th, though big retailers will start their Black Friday build-up long before then – and you can expect to see Black Friday bargains starting to appear from the beginning of November.

Black Friday traditionally marks the start of the annual holiday season shopping spree. It still happens on the high street, but increasingly the best deals – and the most shoppers – are online. That’s why Digital Camera World is running its own Black Friday guides, keeping you up to date on all the latest photography deals and bargains, as they arrive.

The best camera, lens and accessory deals in the UK for Black Friday 2017

There are plenty of technology sites out there that will list everything from backpacks to barista machines, but Digital Camera World is dedicated to photography. As such, we will weed out all the chaff and just bring you the best deals for photography enthusiasts.

We are constantly checking the latest deals but these are changing hour by hour, so apologies for any items which are sold out, or for price changes made since our last check.

Sony RX100 Mark IV - £475 after cashback

£100 cashback on the Sony RX100 IV drops its £575 asking price on Amazon down to just £475 after cashback! Other retailers are still selling this camera for around £569-£629 after cashback, which makes this the strongest compact camera deal we've see yet. Get it here

Canon EOS 200D + 18-55mm IS lens – just £489 after £50 cashback at Amazon UK.

Canon's latest entry-level EOS 200D is fast becoming a popular DSLR, and Canon has managed to squeeze it to just under £500 with a free rucksack and battery thrown in too. Given that other retailers still currently have it on for £509 for the body on its own (after cashback), this kit is a solid bargain.

Nikon D3400 lens kit - just £374

Currys is selling the Nikon D3400 with its 18-55mm (non VR) kit lens for £429, but a £75-off code knocks this price down to just £354. It's a hugely popular DSLR for beginners and we can't find it cheaper anywhere else right now, but we reckon you should spend another £20 and get the VR kit from Wex Photo Video, which will set you back just £374 after you apply the code.

Sony A6000 and 16-50mm kit - just £369 after cashback

Sony is currently offering £50 cashback on its A6000 model, and its current £469 asking price on Jessops means that you end up with the kit for just £369. The only mark against it is the fact that it doesn't have 4K video – otherwise, it's a steal, with 11fps burst shooting, a built-in EVF, tilting screen and superb AF system to recommend it. Most other retailers still have this on for around £465 after cashback, so this is a pretty sweet saving.

Fujifilm X-A10 and 16-50mm lens - £100 off, just £299.99

A strong deal from Jessops here for those that want to dip their toe into Fujifilm's excellent X-series system. It's the most junior model in the range, and sadly doesn't quite pack the same X-Trans CMOS sensor as its older siblings, but it still takes the same, high-quality X-series lenses. You'd be hard pushed to find a more handsome mirrorless model for this kind of money too. A number of other retailers are currently selling this same kit for £399.99, so the saving here is significant. Click here to get this deal

What about Cyber Monday?

Black Friday 2017 FAQ

What is Black Friday deals week?

It’s the week that includes Black Friday. Retailers are increasingly offering deals before and after Black Friday itself so they stand out from the crowd.

Are Black Friday deals real?

Yes. Although these days the retailers plan most of their bargains well in advance, there will some surprises. As with any sales you can expect a mix of genuine bargains, discounted end-of-line camera gear and mysterious items found in the back of a warehouse somewhere.

Where can I find the best Black Friday deals for photographers?

You’re in the right place already! We scour all the top retailers’ Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, and we also tell you what we think of them. Whether you’re looking for a cheap camera or a premium prime lens, you’ll find all the best deals here. If you haven’t signed up for our Black Friday newsletter yet, now’s the time to do it – just scroll back up this page and fill in your details.

How do I get the best Black Friday deals?

Our best advice? Know what you want, know what you can afford to spend and know the market. Beware of dealers selling at higher prices in October so that they can offer an amazing discount on Black Friday. And don’t pay any attention to the list prices or ‘recommended retail prices’ quoted by manufacturers and dealers – the real guide to a bargain is the price everybody else is charging, not what the maker says! But be flexible too. Your first choice of camera may not be on sale at a price you like but another you’d only half considered could be a brilliant deal. Don’t buy something you don’t want just because it’s a bargain, but do keep an open mind.

How can I stay safe on Black Friday?

Black Friday brings out the scammers as well as the sellers, so be wary of unsolicited emails or links to deals on social media no matter how legitimate they look. Anything asking for card details or login details is a scam. Phishing sites do big business on Black Friday, so be extra suspicious – and if you’re on a PC, make sure your security software is up to date. Many security suites automatically block known scam sites.
