Black Friday is less than two weeks away, and already the deals are starting to pour in. The Amazon Black Friday Countdown Sale has officially begun, and there are plenty of juicy discounts to sink your teeth into.
With so many dedicated camera retailers around, it wouldn't be surprising if you didn't automatically think of Amazon when looking for great camera deals. However, Amazon have produced some of the best camera, lens and photo accessory deals this year - and we're only expecting them to get even better in the official countdown to the beginning of the official Amazon Black Friday camera deals.

A lot of the deals available in the Amazon Black Friday Countdown Sale are Lightning Deals, which is where the product will only be discounted for either a set amount of time or until all the products are sold. You can pick up some amazing discounts with Lightning Deals, but you either have to keep a keen eye for the product you want or just be very lucky.
However, the Amazon Black Friday Countdown Sale also has a variety of products that have received a normal discount - and some of them are pretty exciting. We've listed some of the best we've seen below…
Nikon D3500 + 18-55mm lens: Save £170
The Nikon D3500 is currently available with the AF-P DX 18-55mm VR kit lens for just £329 down from its RRP of £499. With a 24.2MP sensor and capability of shooting Full HD 60p movies, this is a great starter camera. (UK only)View Deal
Actitop 4K Camcorder: 15% off

What you need to know about Black Friday 2019
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales have always been a great time to pick up camera gear. This is when camera retailers bring out their best camera deals, often for a short time only and while stocks last. So what do we expect to see this year? Well, we think some of the best Black Friday camera deals in 2019 will come via the big-name brands. You may not get massive savings on the latest models – instead, the best deals are often on cameras, lenses and accessories that are a little older, or the previous model. So should you wait before you buy? Not necessarily! Makers and retailers bring out promotions and deals all year round, and you can be sure we'll bring you the latest just as soon as they appear!
