Prime day deal

We thought this deal on Sony's Alpha A6500 mirrorless camera was pretty special when it was revealed in the Prime Day sale when it started yesterday morning. But now with less than five hours to go until the 48-hour summer dealathon ends, Amazon has slashed a further £50 off the price - on top of the £300 it took off yesterday. And the discounts don't end there, as Sony will also give you £300 of cashback if you buy this camera. So, in all, that now adds up to £650 worth of discounts on this full-feature APS-C mirrorless model with its vlogger-friendly fold out screen.

And the price you end up paying after all this? Just £599... That's what you call less than half price!
