The best Canon Black Friday deals in 2018: top savings on cameras, lenses and accessories


Canon's Black Friday deals are here. We might be a few days away from Black Friday (23 November) and Cyber Monday (26 November) themselves, but with big savings already available on Canon cameras, lens and accessories, now is the perfect time to look out for the best Black Friday camera deal you can find. You might even come across a cheeky early Cyber Monday camera deal on a Canon body or lens too. 

So, what have we got? Well, not only has Canon kicked off a week's worth of photography deals on its UK and US stores, we're also seeing some very good Canon Black Friday deals from third-party retailers like Amazon. There's a lot of choice out there right now, but if you’re not sure where to start when it comes to bagging the best camera you can afford, don’t worry – we’ve got the best Canon Black Friday deals for you right here.

UPDATE: Canon really wants you to buy for its store and is enticing camera lovers with a number of great offers. The pick of the bunch is its Double Cashback offering. This is where you buy through a participating retailer and get a cashback offer twice what it normally. 

Head to Canon's Double Cashback offering now.

As you can see, you don’t have to wait until the day itself to bag a bargain. If you spot something below that's already at a low price and you were intending to buy it anyway, we advise snapping it up right away: there's no guarantee you'll see that discount again. On the other hand, if you’re still in two minds about whether or not to buy, waiting until the 23 November is a gamble that could pay off.

Bear in mind that some retailers, such as Currys in the UK, are offering to refund any price differences should they release a better deal on Black Friday (this applies to the “Why Wait?” deals only). At the moment, you can pick up a couple of different Canon compacts as part of its offering.

It’s also worth remembering that many stores – both in the UK and the US – offer a price match service. That means that if you spot a great deal on Black Friday itself but would prefer to buy something in another location, you might be able to get a price match deal. In the UK, John Lewis is the big name store for such a match, but in the US you might find similar luck at JCPenney.

Our predictions

The million dollar question: which cameras will see the best Canon Black Friday deals overall, as we get closer to the big day? Well, one good clue comes from Canon itself. In the US, Canon is currently running deals on a number of DSLR, mirrorless and point-and-shoot models, including: 

  • EOS 7D Mark II EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Wi-Fi Adapter Lens Kit: $1,799 (was $2,499)
  • EOS 6D Mark II EF 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM: $1,999 (was $2,599)

  • PowerShot G3 X: $849 (was $999.99)
  • PowerShot SX530 HS: $249 (was $379.99)

Meanwhile, Canon UK is offering cashback on a number of key products, around £100 – all of which gives us a strong indication of the cameras and lenses Canon is happiest to discount right now, and the sort of savings we hope to see more of over Black Friday and Cyber Monday themselves.

Our predictions? We think there’s a high chance we’ll see Canon Black Friday and Cyber Monday camera deals on: Canon’s original non-full-frame M range – possibly the M50; Canon EOS 77D; Canon EOS 2000D and 18-55mm – as we saw on Amazon Prime Day; Canon EOS Rebel T6 EF-S 18-55mm Kit and Canon PowerShot SX620 HS.

As soon as we start seeing Black Friday deals on Canon cameras appearing, we'll post the best ones here.
