Should you be making the switch from a smartphone to a proper camera? They may be usable for casual snaps, but smartphones get nowhere near the creative control offered by a DSLR camera. Thankfully, Canon UK’s Black Friday hub has some huge and exclusive discounts on some of its top-line cameras. But hurry – some of Canon’s best offers are limited.
Leading the charge is the Canon EOS 6D Body, a remarkably lightweight enthusiast-focused full-frame DSLR. Already an affordable way into full-frame photography, this Black Friday sees it becomes irresistible. Not only is its price slashed from £1589.99 to just £799, but there's more good news about the discounted Canon EOS 6D Body – there's plenty of stock available.
That's not the case for Canon's two other Black Friday bargains, the Canon EOS 750D + 18-55mm lens (down from £544 to £499) and the Canon EOS 1300D + 18-55mm lens (down from £359.99 to £294.99), for which stock is strictly limited. You’re going to have to get on Canon’s Black Friday hub as soon as possible to grab those discounts.
Canon is also discounting its excellent premium compact camera, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II, which will get a reduction from £529.99 to £449.99.
Canon UK's Black Friday offers run from 19-26 November 2018, but there are more reasons to buy directly from Canon than just to access these exclusive discounts. On Canon’s website, you’ll also find a massive 40% discount on selected camera bag accessories and exclusive merchandise, as well as incredible Winter Cashback deals that will remain available beyond Black Friday.
That cashback offer is key because Canon's own online store is a great place to come for some of the best camera bargains in the run-up to Christmas, best accessed by signing up to receive the latest promotions from Canon UK via email. Only by shopping at Canon UK this Black Friday – and beyond – can you guarantee free delivery and returns on all orders over £30, a must-have two-year manufacturer's guarantee, and, of course, access to the entire, extensive product range from Canon.
