Early Black Friday camera deals in 2020: cameras, lenses, lighting and more!

The best Black Friday camera deals in 2020

Looking to save serious cash? The Black Friday camera deals in 2020 are going to be bigger and better than ever, as retailers start pumping out their best offers leading into the holiday season. 

With hot new products like the Canon EOS R5, Sony A7S III, Nikon Z5 and Panasonic S5 having just arrived, along with the imminent Nikon Z6 II and Nikon Z7 II, we know that there will be big Black Friday camera deals on previous models… and probably some great offers on these new systems, too! 

Obviously it's a great time to pick up a Christmas gift, too. So whether you're eyeing up the best camera for your partner, the best photo books for your relatives, the best budget laptops for your kids or the best photo gifts for those hard-to-buy-for friends, there's going to be something for everybody and every budget. 

Make sure to keep this page bookmarked, as we'll be keeping it constantly updated as the new deals and discounts roll out ahead of the main event. And if you're wondering when the big day actually is… 

When is Black Friday 2020?

This year Black Friday falls on 27 November 2020, which is less than a month before Christmas Day! And of course, it isn't just limited to the Friday itself – deals tend to run all weekend long, with fresh offers materializing on Saturday and Sunday, culminating in the big Cyber Monday sale that takes place on 30 November 2020.

If that seems a little late in the day, don't worry – the big Black Friday push typically starts the week before the main event, but ever more competitive retailers often start firing off deals at the start of November. So there's plenty of time to pick up some great offers in time for the holidays! 

Trying to stay alert to when all the deals and discounts go live can be a full-time occupation, especially as many offers only run for a limited period (sometimes just an hour) and are launched at unusual times during the day (and night!). 

That's why we're keeping in touch with all the retailers, and constantly monitoring all the channels, so we can keep this page updated with the latest and greatest offers. So your best bet to spot the savings as they happen is to bookmark this page and keep checking back, to bag a bargain before it disappears!
