Best Black Friday camera deals in 2023

Full-frame cameras

Canon EOS R3 (body only) |AU$8,49.95AU$6,724.96 at Ted's Cameras

Canon EOS R3 (body only) | AU$8,49.95 AU$6,724.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$1,770.99 after cashback)

There was a cashback offer during last year's Black Friday sale that saw this sports shooter drop to under AU$7K, and we're so excited that has happened again, with the R3 now cheaper than ever if you take advantage of Canon's 50th anniversary cashback offer. The R3 is one heck of a pro-level camera, with a 24MP stacked BSI sensor, 6K/60p and 4K/120p video, a 5.76 million dot EVF with a 120fps refresh rate, Canon's Eye Control tracking tech, up to 8 stops of IBIS and up to 30fps bursts.

Canon EOS R6 Mark II (body) |AU$3,799AU$3,419 at CameraPro

Canon EOS R6 Mark II (body) | AU$3,799 AU$3,419 at CameraPro (save AU$380 after cashback)

This is a much better discount than CameraPro makes it out to be as the retailer's original list price is far better than anywhere else. The R6 II has a retail price of over AU$4K, then add in Canon's AU$150 cashback offer via online redemption and this full-frame speedster can be yours for just AU$3,500 (or AU$3,419 with cashback). For your money, you'll get the best of Canon's autofocus tech, high speed bursts and 4K video. It also gets a bump in sensor resolution from the original R6, now featuring a 24.4MP full-frame sensor.

Canon EOS R8 + RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM |AU$2,949AU$2,399 on Amazon

Canon EOS R8 + RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM | AU$2,949 AU$2,399 on Amazon (save AU$550)

The EOS R8 is the lovechild of the EOS R6 Mark II and the now-ageing EOS RP, and is currently the cheapest full-frame mirrorless camera on the market. It's an entry-level snapper but it features some of the specs from Canon's more expensive bodies, like topnotch tracking and autofocus, plus burst of up to 40fps. What it lacks is the high-resolution EVF and rear LCD screen from those premium models. Still, this is a lot of camera for this discounted price for a single-lens kit. There's a AU$150 Visa gift card offer to claim from Canon as well.

Nikon Z8 (body) | AU$6,799AU$5,799 at Ted's Cameras

Nikon Z8 (body) | AU$6,799 AU$5,799 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$1,000)

Not only is there a AU$700 discount on what is arguably one of the best Nikon cameras to date, but an additional AU$300 voucher is automatically added at checkout when you purchase this full-framer from Ted's Cameras. That's a massive saving of a grand! You get a 45.7MP effective resolution, 8.3K/60p internal video recording, a 493-point phase-detect AF system, up to 120fps bursts and a remarkably compact body compared to the flagship Z9.

Nikon Z9 (body only) |AU$8,999AU$7,458 on Amazon

Nikon Z9 (body only) | AU$8,999 AU$7,458 on Amazon (save AU$1,541)

This remarkable pro sports camera has dropped to AU$6,269 on Amazon previously, which was the best price we'd seen since it was launched. We're not expecting that kind of a price drop again, but there's still some decent savings to be had on Amazon right now. This truly is a revolutionary high-res pro camera, having done away with its mechanical shutter entirely, and worth every penny to a professional sports photographer.

Sony A7R IV (body) |AU$4,199.95AU$3,169.96 at Ted's Cameras

Sony A7R IV (body) | AU$4,199.95 AU$3,169.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$1,029.99 after cashback)

Ted's Cameras has shaved off a decent chunk of change from the list price of this marvellous high-res full-framer, and then there's a Sony cashback offer to take advantage off. Which means, when you redeem via Sony's website, you get score this 61MP full-framer for a right steal and we think that's a pretty nifty bargain right now.

Sony A7 III (body only) |AU$2,529AU$1,699 at CameraPro

Sony A7 III (body only) | AU$2,529 AU$1,699 at CameraPro (save AU$830 with cashback)

Even though the Mark IV camera might be the better option since it's more recent, it's still a hefty investment. The A7 III is still a remarkably capable full-frame hybrid camera and, if you register this purchase with Sony, you can get AU$400 in cashback, saving you a total of AU$830.

Canon EOS R5 (body) |AU$5,799.95AU$4,629.96 at Ted's Cameras

Canon EOS R5 (body) | AU$5,799.95 AU$4,629.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$1,169.99 after cashback)

Canon's flagship was recently AU$4,899 at DigiDirect, but it looks like Ted's Cameras current discount, plus the Canon cashback offer makes this the best offer right now. 45MP resolution, 8K video, speedy and accurate autofocus, IBIS, up to 20fps bursts... there's a lot that's great about this snapper.

Nikon Z7 II (body only) |AU$4,634AU$3,999 on Amazon

Nikon Z7 II (body only) | AU$4,634 AU$3,999 on Amazon (save AU$635)

This is pretty close to the lowest price the Z7 has been, which was AU$3,954 in May this year. And while Amazon lists the discount at just 14%, the actual RRP for this full-frame snapper is AU$5,499. Taking that into account, this is a fantastic bargain on a high-resolution camera. Sure, it can't keep up with the latest from Canon and Sony, but it's still an amazing snapper.

Nikon Z6 II (body only) |AU$3,499AU$2,549 on Amazon

Nikon Z6 II (body only) | AU$3,499 AU$2,549 on Amazon (save AU$945)

It might be a minor upgrade from the original Z6, but this 24.5MP full-framer is a very capable all-rounder on its own accord. Admittedly competition from Sony and Canon has overshadowed the Z6 II, but if you are a Nikon fan, this is a good enthusiast- to advanced-level shooter. There was a AU$916 saving on Amazon during last year's Black Friday, meaning this is a slightly better discount.

Need a kit? The Nikon Z6 II + Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens bundle is 20% off on Amazon, now AU$3,691 from AU$4,599.

Panasonic Lumix S5II + Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 |AU$3,699AU$2,788 on Amazon

Panasonic Lumix S5II + Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 | AU$3,699 AU$2,788 on Amazon (save AU$911)

The Lumix S5II is more than just a reliable and capable workhorse – it's perhaps Panasonic's more advanced hybrid full-framer and the first to use phase-detect autofocus instead of the brand's usual DFD tech. It's an excellent video camera that happens to take good stills too and this offer on the single-lens kit is too good to pass up if this is the kind of camera you're after.

Leica SL2 (body) |AU$10,799AU$9,895 at Diamonds Camera

Leica SL2 (body) | AU$10,799 AU$9,895 at Diamonds Camera (save AU$904)

Leica's full-frame 47MP snapper seems to be the cheapest at Diamond Cameras but stock is low. While still really very pricey, this is a good offer considering the SL2 body is listed for AU$11,390 at the Leica Store. 5K/30p video and 20fps burst shooting, the SL2 is a formidable camera if you can afford it.

APS-C cameras

Canon EOS R100 + RF-S 18-45mm lensAU$1,099AU$794 on Amazon

Canon EOS R100 + RF-S 18-45mm lens | AU$1,099 AU$794 on Amazon (save AU$305)

Announced in May 2023, the R100 is already Canon's most affordable RF-mount camera. While it doesn't feature an articulating touchscreen, it's got a lot of other features that are worthwhile for any beginner after a capable entry-level camera. 4K/24p video (cropped), good autofocus performance and an excellent 24.1MP sensor will help you hone your skills.

Canon EOS R50 + RF-S 18-45mm lens |AU$1,249AU$1,049 at CameraPro

Canon EOS R50 + RF-S 18-45mm lens | AU$1,249 AU$1,049 at CameraPro (save AU$200 after cashback)

This might not seem like a big discount on this 24.2MP APS-C speedster, but the Canon R50 has an RRP of AU$1,399 elsewhere, so the ticket price at CameraPro is, in itself, low. So what do you get for your money? 4K/30p video oversampled from 6K footage, excellent autofocus capabilities for video and stills, plus bursts of up to 15fps. And a compact, lightweight body.

Fujifilm X-T5 (body only; black) |AU$2,999AU$2,369 on Amazon

Fujifilm X-T5 (body only; black) | AU$2,999 AU$2,369 on Amazon (save AU$630)

This camera is just about a year old and it's a fantastic bargain at under AU$2,500. It launched with a price tag of over AU$3K but now retails for under that. This is good savings on a camera that offers 40.2MP of resolution on tap and the ability to shoot 6.2K/30p video. It's small, light and oh-so-compact.

Fujifilm X-H2 (body only) |AU$2,999.95AU$2,549.96 at Ted's Cameras

Fujifilm X-H2 (body only) | AU$2,999.95 AU$2,549.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$449.99)

This is a pretty good discount on a pretty good speedster. This 40MP snapper is currently AU$2,550 (yes, we decided to round it up) at Ted's Cameras, putting some remarkable speed and processing power in your hands. It can also shoot 8K video if you need that kind of resolution. 

Fujifilm X-T30 II (body only; silver) |AU$1,390AU$1,299 at CameraPro

Fujifilm X-T30 II (body only; silver) | AU$1,390 AU$1,299 at CameraPro (save AU$91)

This may not seem like a huge discount, but this is already an affordable camera currently listed at around the AU$1,400 mark elsewhere. That means the AU$1,299 discounted price at CameraPro is pretty good ahead of Black Friday. To then get this 26.1MP snapper for even less, no matter how little less, is just the icing on the cake. Excellent performance and image quality really makes this a great option for enthusiasts and advanced users.

Canon EOS R7 (body only) |AU$2,299AU$1,899 on Amazon

Canon EOS R7 (body only) | AU$2,299 AU$1,899 on Amazon (save AU$400)

The EOS R7 is a lot of camera for its affordable full price, but this 17% discount makes it a tempting option for a beginner. High speed RAW capture, the same autofocus prowess of the more expensive R-series cameras, dual SD cards, 4K video and 32.3MP on tap, and that's just for starters. Did we mention the 40fps continuous shooting speed and in-body stabilisation?

Sony A6700 (body) |AU$2,399AU$1,889 at CameraPro

Sony A6700 (body) | AU$2,399 AU$1,889 at CameraPro (save AU$510)

Announced earlier this year, the A6700 takes the brilliant autofocus performance of Sony's full-framers and puts it into a compact, travel-friendly body. It's a very capable 26MP hybrid, although its IBIS isn't great for video capture and there's a heavy crop if you opt for 4K 120p slo-mos. If that doesn't bother you, this is a good mid-range enthusiast-level camera.

Nikon Z fc (body) |AU$1,449.95AU$1,232.46 at Ted's Cameras

Nikon Z fc (body) | AU$1,449.95 AU$1,232.46 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$217.49)

If you want a small travel camera with serious retro oomph, then we'd highly recommend the Nikon Z fc. It exudes old-world charm without compromising on performance. If you head to Ted's Cameras, you'll find a few kit options in different colours to choose from, all discounted.

Fujifilm X-S10 (body only) |AU$1,499AU$1,274.96 at Ted's Cameras

Fujifilm X-S10 (body only) | AU$1,499 AU$1,274.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$224.99)

We were really very impressed with what Fujifilm was able to do with the X-S10 when it was first announced. It quickly became one of our fave cameras, thanks to the excellent performance of its 26.1MP APS-C sensor and the built-in 6.5 stops of image stabilisation. Precise autofocus and subject tracking is also a boon.

Nikon Z30 + Nikkor Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 VR |AU$1,499AU$1,249 on Amazon

Nikon Z30 + Nikkor Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 VR | AU$1,499 AU$1,249 on Amazon (save AU$250)

Nikon's cheapest Z series camera with the 16-50mm kit was AU$970 a few days ago, but that bundle is no longer discounted. Instead, there's a 17% discount on the 12-28mm kit, which is worth considering. A brilliant 20.8MP sensor, 4K recording at up to 125 minutes per clip, a compact size... this is a great little vlogging or travel camera at what is probably its best price yet on the single-lens kit.

Nikon Z50 + DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR + DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR |AU$2,049AU$1,550 on Amazon

Nikon Z50 + DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR + DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR | AU$2,049 AU$1,550 on Amazon (save AU$499)

There was a very good AU$650 discount on this twin-lens kit on Amazon, but that offer is no longer available. However, you can opt for the body only for just AU$1,000 for now and add your choices of lenses later. Where the Z30 doesn't feature a built-in EVF, the Z50 does. It's also got a larger flip-down rear screen compared to a smaller articulating one on the Z30. Most of the other features are alike between Nikon's affordable APS-C Z-series cameras, but the addition of two lenses in the kit is a perfect start.

Medium Format

Fujifilm GFX 100S (body only)AU$8,999.95AU$6,349.96 at Ted's Cameras

Fujifilm GFX 100S (body only) | AU$8,999.95 AU$6,349.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$2,649.99 after cashback)

The biggest barrier to entering the world of medium format photography is how expensive the cameras and lenses are. However, if you don't mind an older model, there's a cashback offer from Fujifilm via online redemption until January 10, 2024, that could save a decent AU$1,300 on the already discounted price of AU$7,649.96 at Ted's Cameras. Get 100MP resolution on tap for the price of a premium full-framer!

Fujifilm GFX 50S II (body) |AU$5,499.95AU$3,374.96 at Ted's Cameras

Fujifilm GFX 50S II (body) | AU$5,499.95 AU$3,374.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$2,24.99 after cashback)

A discount plus a cashback offer makes this 50MP medium format camera a right steal at low price of just AU$3,375 when you pick it up from Ted's Cameras. DSLR-like styling makes it easier to handle, it produces some beautiful results and it worth every penny even at full price if you really want to get into medium format photography. 

Micro Four Thirds

Panasonic Lumix G9 (body) | AU$1,599AU$1,099 on Amazon

Panasonic Lumix G9 (body) | AU$1,599 AU$1,099 on Amazon (save AU$500)

The original G9 is getting a little long in the tooth, especially since the G9 II is a massive upgrade over the older model. However, the Mark II also gets a massive price increase. So if you don't need the speed and precision of the 2023 release of the G9 II, the old G9 body gets AU$500 slashed off its list price on Amazon.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV (body only, silver) |AU$1,099AU$779 on Amazon

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV (body only, silver) | AU$1,099 AU$779 on Amazon (save AU$320)

This good-looking camera is both portable and powerful, with a 20MP MFT sensor, IBIS and a flip-down monitor. It's got a good update over its Mark III predecessor with better autofocus too. It would be a really good option for anyone looking for an entry-level camera. Plus, there's no lack of lenses, with any MFT optic from any brand fitting the body. 

DSLR

Nikon D6 (body) |AU$9,999AU$7,499 on Amazon

Nikon D6 (body) | AU$9,999 AU$7,499 on Amazon (save AU$2,500)

One of the best pro-level DSLRs that Nikon ever made, the D6 still retails for a hefty price tag. We've not usually seen it get a discount like this, but then perhaps retailers want to flog their stock of DSLR bodies. Speculations aside, if you still love a DSLR and want a pro-grade body, this is a beaut!

Nikon D780 (body only) |AU$3,499AU$2,677.95 on Amazon

Nikon D780 (body only) | AU$3,499 AU$2,677.95 on Amazon (save AU$821.05)

It's the last DSRL Nikon made and, in many ways, is an updated version of the trusty old D750. However, this one is better in many ways as Nikon has taken the sensor, AF tech and processing prowess of the Z6 and packed it into the D750 body. And while it's hard to spruik a DSLR these days, trust us when we say this is one heck of a camera.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (body only) |AU$3,999.95AU$3,099.96 at Ted's Cameras

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (body only) | AU$3,999.95 AU$3,099.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$899.99 after cashback)

This isn't the best price we've seen on this timeless DSRL from Canon – it was AU$2,799 on Amazon during Black Friday 2022 – but we don't think that kind of a price drop is going to happen this year. Instead, there's a Canon cashback offer to take advantage of. If this price looks good to you, know that just because it's a DSLR doesn't mean you should ignore it. It's still one of the best cameras Canon has ever made, with a plethora of EF lenses to choose from.

Nikon D850 (body) |AU$4,599AU$3,300 on Amazon

Nikon D850 (body) | AU$4,599 AU$3,300 on Amazon (save AU$1,299)

With a 45.7MP full-frame sensor under the hood, this is a really impressive DSLR despite being on the heavy and bulky side. The image quality here truly is magnificent. If that's what important to you, and you're comfortable buying from a third-party seller on Amazon, there's a very hefty AU$1,299 saving to be had.

Canon EOS 200D Mark II + EF 18-55mm kit lens |AU$1,159AU$976 on Amazon

Canon EOS 200D Mark II + EF 18-55mm kit lens | AU$1,159 AU$976 on Amazon (save AU$183)

An absolute stunner of a beginner DSLR, this camera was designed to help people start their creative journey. A guided menu is just the start, plus an intuitive interface and physical setup helps. It's also small and light for a DSLR. This kit was down to AU$799 for Black Friday last year, so this offer is a little disappointing.

Canon EOS 90D (body only)AU$1,899AU$1,499 at CameraPro

Canon EOS 90D (body only) | AU$1,899 AU$1,499 at CameraPro (save AU$400 after cashback)

At this low price, this 32.5MP DSLR is a right steal as it's hardly seen a discount all year. Its APS-C format sensor is excellent, and it can handle some pretty good 4K video too. There's upto 10fps continuous shooting on board and Canon's tried and tested Dual Pixel AF takes care of your autofocus needs. 

Vlogging cameras

Sony ZV-1 II |AU$1,299AU$1,088 on Amazon

Sony ZV-1 II | AU$1,299 AU$1,088 on Amazon (save AU$211)

There's not a lot the Mark II version of the Sony ZV-1 vlogging camera can do better or differently than the original, but the best price right now on it is on Amazon although it isn't listed as a deal. You can also get the ZV-1 II from JB Hi-Fi for the same price.

Want it in white? The Sony Store has the ZV-1 II for AU$1,088 as well.

Sony ZV-1F |AU$749AU$691 on Amazon

Sony ZV-1F | AU$749 AU$691 on Amazon (save AU$58)

The ZV-1F has dropped in price significantly since it launched with a price tag of AU$1,099. It's now retailing for about AU$750 to AU$900, and you can have it for cheaper still on Amazon. Stock is limited, though, so be quick if you'd like an affordable 4K vlogging camera for your content creation needs.

Point-and-shoot cameras

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII |AU$1,649AU$1,399 at CameraPro

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII | AU$1,649 AU$1,399 at CameraPro (save AU$250)

The last of its kind, Sony hasn't resurrected its point-and-shoot line, but the Mark VII is still retailing for a pretty high price. However, it's one of the best point-and-shoots money can buy, so it's definitely worth a consideration at this small discount of AU$250 from CameraPro. Featuring a pop-up EVF, a 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 lens for a versatile focal length range and the same imaging engine used in Sony A9 sports camera, this is one heck of a pocket rocket.

Canon PowerShot V10 |AU$699AU$560 on Amazon

Canon PowerShot V10 | AU$699 AU$560 on Amazon (save AU$139)

Smaller than most mobile phones and yet producing some decent images, the PowerShot V10 is a very different kind of camera. It's fun to use, but it struggles a little in low light, but it's still the perfect little companion to keep with you when you're out and about or want to use as a webcam or streaming camera. It even has its own little stand for that! The black model is cheapest, sitting at AU$560 on Amazon, while the Silver one is a touch more at AU$570.

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 |AU$549AU$466.65 at DigiDirect

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 | AU$549 AU$466.65 at DigiDirect (save AU$90)

Already really quite affordable, this point-and-shoot camera gets you a 30x optical zoom and an 18.1MP sensor. While sensor resolution might be lower, there are 4K Video and Photo modes here, plus a Post Focus function that lets you choose the focal point after the fact. This camera was cheaper (AU$438) on Amazon last year during Black Friday, but we're not seeing it being discounted anywhere else this time around.

Instant cameras

Leica Sofort 2 (black) |AU$649AU$616.55 at DigiDirect

Leica Sofort 2 (black) | AU$649 AU$616.55 at DigiDirect (save AU$32.45)

It might be a minuscule discount but keep in mind that the Sofort 2 hybrid instant camera was announced recently and has been on shelves only from the start of November. So even this little bit of a discount is amazing! Admittedly it has its flaws, which are exacerbated by its high price tag compared to other instant cameras, but it offers a lot of features to enhance your prints. If you want to own a Leica, this might be the cheapest way to get the Red Dot.

Polaroid Now+ | AU$329AU$209.60 on Amazon

Polaroid Now+ | AU$329 AU$209.60 on Amazon (save AU$119.40)

We couldn't help ourselves, we gave a full five stars to this camera in our Polaroid Now+ review, calling it possibly the best Polaroid yet. If that isn't worth taking into consideration when choosing an instant camera, we don't know what is. This offer includes a filter set for the lens and is from Amazon US, so you will need to be patient for it to ship in, but is good value for money.

If you'd rather buy local, the next best discount is at Ted's Cameras for AU$280.46.

Kodak Mini Shot 3 |AU$259AU$159.20 on Amazon

Kodak Mini Shot 3 | AU$259 AU$159.20 on Amazon (save AU$99.80)

This instant camera offer includes 8 spare film sheets to help you get started. While it doesn't find a place in our best instant camera guide, it's still a good alternative. It's capable of printing photos both with and without borders. It'll connect to its smartphone app via Bluetooth where you can get creative before printing.

Fujifilm Instax SQ1 | AU$199.95AU$166 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax SQ1 | AU$199.95 AU$166 on Amazon (save AU$33.95)

It's not a huge discount and while we think the SQ40 is the better camera, it would be remiss of us to not list this here. As part of the Square range of Instax cameras, it produces square prints as opposed to the credit card-sized ones the Mini 12 spews. Available in Chalk White for the best price, the Terracotta Orange and the Glacier Blue are AU$169.15. The Black colourway is more expensive at AU$186.

Fujifilm Instax SQ40 + 3x10-pack Instax Square film |AU$288.95AU$196.99 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax SQ40 + 3x10-pack Instax Square film | AU$288.95 AU$196.99 on Amazon (save AU$91.86)

This is a pretty decent saving when you consider you're not only getting a lovely instant camera but 30 square film sheets too. The SQ Instax cameras create square images instead of the credit card-sized ones from the Mini range, and is rather a good-looking and easy-to-use camera.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 |AU$119.95AU$99.95 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 | AU$119.95 AU$99.95 on Amazon (save AU$20)

The Instax Mini cameras are all easy-to-use instant cameras and the latest – the Mini 12 – is no exception. It's our pick of the best instant camera for most people, thanks to use simple interface and its ability to produce some lovely prints on film that doesn't cost a lot either. 

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay |AU$239from AU$184 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay | AU$239 from AU$184 on Amazon (save up to AU$55)

A bit more 'mature' looking than the Instax Mini 11 or 12, this hybrid instant camera will not only work take pics and spew them out instantly, but will also print out any existing old snaps you might have on your phone. It's a printer and camera in one small package! Available in three colours.

Action & 360º cameras

GoPro Hero 12 Black |AU$649AU$487 at The Good Guys eBay

GoPro Hero 12 Black | AU$649 AU$487 at The Good Guys eBay (save AU$162)

The ultimate in action cameras right now, the GoPro Hero 12 Black gets a pretty impressive discount on eBay, but you will need to use the checkout code HGTNOV to score the action camera for just AU$487. Beautifully stabilised images, excellent battery life and crammed full of features you are definitely going to use, this is one camera worth investing in.

GoPro Hero 11 Black |AU$579AU$456 on The Good Guys eBay

GoPro Hero 11 Black | AU$579 AU$456 on The Good Guys eBay (save AU$123)

If you don't need dual-channel audio recording and Bluetooth mic support, you could opt for the Hero 11 Black, which also allows you to record GPS date, that the Hero 12 Black does not. Already reduced on The Good Guys' eBay store, use the checkout code HGTNOV and you'll save an additional AU$20 that drops the final price to just AU$456.

DJI Osmo Action 3 |AU$519AU$417 on Amazon

DJI Osmo Action 3 | AU$519 AU$417 on Amazon (save AU$102)

This is a great value alternative to a more premium GoPro, but then you also miss out on certain features. While it's got a wider field of view in comparison to the competition and a handy front screen, its low-light performance isn't always up to par and its 360º levelling caps out at 2.4K. However, for something that's cheaper than the GoPro, this isn't too bad, especially since the Osmo Action 4 is a lot more expensive.

If you prefer to buy directly from DJI, the Osmo Action 3 is AU$439.

DJI Pocket 2 |AU$599AU$449 at DJI

DJI Pocket 2 | AU$599 AU$449 at DJI (save AU$150)

DJI announced the Pocket 3 in October, so it's no wonder the previous-generation action camera gets a discount this Black Friday. While it doesn't handle low light as well as we would like, it's important to note it's a tiny sensor inside. Still, you get to record in 4K video and it's perfect for solo videographers.

If you've got a bit more budget to spare, we'd recommend the DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo for AU$599 from DJI (25%off AU$799) available via the same listing as it includes accessories that help with content creation if you're working alone.

Drones

DJI Avata |AU$1,6292AU$1,299 on Amazon

DJI Avata | AU$1,6292 AU$1,299 on Amazon (save AU$330)

Making FPV drones a little more accessible thanks to this 20% discount, the DJI Avata features a 48MP 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor, which supports up to 4K video at 100fps. This footage is shot with an ultra-wide 155° FOV that mimics how we see with our own eyes for a natural and realistic experience. At just AU$1,299 for the standard package with the goggles and controller, it's a steal.

If you'd like more accessories, there's 16% off the DJI Avata Fly More Combo package – now AU$1,638.

Lenses

Sigma AF 16mm f/1.4 DC DN (C) (MFT mount) | AU$599.99 AU$509.96 at Ted's Cameras (save AU$90.03)

Specifically for the micro four thirds cameras, this wide-angle lens with a lovely f/1.4 aperture is a 32mm equivalent in full-frame terms. Great for landscape and street photography, it's compact and lightweight to match the small size of the MFT bodies.

• Available for the same price in L-Mount, Sony E-Mount and Canon M-Mount.
• Available for the Nikon Z-Mount for AU$679.96 (down from AU$799.99)

Get close to the action with this Nikon supertelephoto lens, now with a decent saving of AU$431. Meant for Nikon's Z-series full-frame cameras, this lens has a very versatile focal length range that's great for sports and wildlife photography. There's also in-lens stabilisation of up to 5.5 stops.

Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM |AU$749AU$699 at CamerPro

Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM | AU$749 AU$699 at CamerPro (save AU$50)

This might be a prime lens at its core, but with a 1:2 magnification ratio, you can use this for macro shots too. Its minimum focusing distance is a mere 6.7 inches. Built-in image stabilisation and fast aperture makes this one heck of an affordable 35mm prime for Canon's R-series cameras. This lens was down to AU$650 during Black Friday last year, so you could wait to see if it drops a little further in price later this month.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM |AU$329AU$299 at CameraPro

Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM | AU$329 AU$299 at CameraPro (save AU$30)

It may not be a huge discount but this prime lens is already quite affordable at full price. However if you're a Canon EOS R user and in need of an excellent portrait lens with great depth of field and low-light performance, this nifty fifty is now under AU$300 at CameraPro.

Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S |AU$3,979AU$3,599 at CameraPro

Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S | AU$3,979 AU$3,599 at CameraPro (save AU$380)

This zoom lens was down to AU$3,399 last Black Friday, so this isn't the biggest discount we've seen and we're not quite expecting it to get any better this year. If this price looks right to you and you want to add a zoom lens to your Nikon Z system, this is a decent offer to consider.

Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II |AU$3,699AU$3,299 at DigiDirect

Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS II | AU$3,699 AU$3,299 at DigiDirect (save AU$400)

A 70-200mm zoom lens is a pretty common addition to any photographer's kit, but if you still haven't gotten one and happen to be a Sony full-frame shooter, you might want to consider this offer. It's the updated Mark II version of the already great FE 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, so you know you're getting great glass here. Hopefully there'll be a bigger discount come Cyber Weekend, but there are no guarantees.

Fujifilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR |AU$3,199AU$1,999 at CameraPro

Fujifilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR | AU$3,199 AU$1,999 at CameraPro (save AU$1,200 after cashback)

This supertelephoto lens gives you a focal length range equivalent to 229-914mm in full-frame terms when used with a Fujifilm APS-C X-series body, meaning you get super close to all the action or capture a lot of details on the Moon.  It's fast, accurate and relatively lightweight for a lens with this kind of range. While the actual discount at CameraPro isn't anything to write home about, the additional AU$700 cashback offer from Fujifilm is definitely worth redeeming.

Photo printers

Fujifilm Instax Wide Link |AU$229AU$187 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax Wide Link | AU$229 AU$187 on Amazon (save AU$42)

Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 |AU$219AU$125 on Amazon

Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 | AU$219 AU$125 on Amazon (save AU$94)

While the Instax Mini Link 2 uses the credit-card sized film that the Instax Mini series of cameras spew out, this classy-looking printer accepts only the Instax Square range. You'll need to the Share app on your phone to use this, but you can even transfer images from an X-series camera via Wi-Fi, then print out with just a tap of a button. This printer was down to AU$125 for Black Friday two years ago and we're stoked to see that old price return, making this a good Christmas prezzie for someone.

Polaroid Hi-Print | AU$199.95 AU$175 on Amazon (save AU$24.95)

This Polaroid's answer to Fujifilm's Instax Link printers, creating business card-sized prints from images saved on your phone. You will need the Polaroid Hi-Print companion app, which connects to two devices via Bluetooth, with plenty of frames, stickers and emojis to spice things up. There was a very nice AU$80 on this during Black Friday, but now it's only 13% off the list price but still worth considering.

Samsung EVO Plus 128GB microSD cards with adapter | AU30 AU$22 on Amazon (save AU$8)

While all storage capacities were discounted earlier, a lot of those options are now full price or out of stock. Instead, the 128GB option is still going strong with a 27% price drop on Amazon. Samsung's Evo microSDs have up to 130Mb/s transfer speeds, which should suit the average photographer. And since these come with an adapter, using a microSD card in your camera shouldn't be an issue at all.
