Nikon Black Friday cameras to watch out for
The Nikon Z7 is currently the Big N's flagship mirrorless camera – but it has announced that the Nikon Z7 II will be launched this month. While that won't make the original Z7 redundant, it will certainly mean that deep discounts are likely to be on offer – making it a brilliant opportunity to pick up this 45.7MP monster with 4K video (oversampled from 8K) for a song. As the world pivots away from XQD to CFexpress, you might even see some bargains on XQD cards as well…
Just like the its big brother, the original Nikon Z6 is set to be succeeded by the Nikon Z6 II this month. Accordingly, there should be brilliant bargains around for the first generation model – which will remain every bit as capable, with its 24.5MP sensor and 4K 30p video. Watch out for accessory bundles, with everything from lenses and memory cards to video kits with microphones and cages.
Nikon Coolpix B500
Black Friday isn't just the domain of expensive mirrorless models, mind you – it's also a time to bag a bargain on a bridge camera, like the Nikon Coolpix B500. With its astonishing 40x zoom range and advanced controls, this combines the creativity of a DSLR with the usability of a point-and-shoot – and gives you an impossibly long zoom, to boot. The B500 already sells for a sub-$250 price tag, so this could be an irresistible purchase.
The Nikon D3500 is one of the best cameras for beginners, so expect retailers to welcome new photographers to the fold by slashing prices on this 24.2MP APS-C DSLR – and we expect both generous bundle deals with kit lenses, as well as savings on DX-mount optics that you can add to your cart to create a perfect starter kit. If you or a loved one is keen to pick up a first camera, look no further!
To many people, the Nikon D850 is the ultimate DSLR – and we awarded it a Gold Award for its 45.7MP sensor, 9fps burst shooting (with a couple of caveats), dual card slots and 4K video. However, with Nikon keen to steer customers towards its mirrorless Z7 II, we expect significant savings from retailers and the Big N itself, which would make the ultimate DSLR even harder to beat.
