Is Black Friday the best time to buy a camera?

As a general rule, Black Friday is usually a great time to buy a new camera, but not every deal is as good as it may seem initially – which is where we come in.

In some cases, retailers do mark up the prices of cameras and camera bundles in the run-up to Black Friday, in order to offer a seemingly bigger discount during the run of the actual event itself. However, this doesn't necessarily make them a bad buy though, on many occasions, their prices still drop to mouth-watering record-lows. But in the grand scheme of things, the percentage saving may not be quite as large as advertised.

However, to combat these situations, we'll only highlight the actual saving of any Black Friday deal based on the camera's recent price history, and we will make sure it's a genuinely a good deal before placing it in this hub. This isn't necessarily the norm, though, and many cameras do simply drop to their lowest-ever price for a brief period over Black Friday, particularly in Amazon's Lightning deals - These are often the best camera deals of the year.

How long do Black Friday deals last?

This year, the official Black Friday date is Friday, November 25, 2022, so the best camera deals will be available today! And continue straight after Thanksgiving through to Cyber Monday on November 28, and possibly even beyond. 

Last year we saw Black Friday camera deals (opens in new tab) appearing as early as October, with more bargains becoming available in the weeks leading up to Black Friday itself. 

If you do miss out on Black Friday itself, don’t worry, we’ve also got Cyber Monday, so the best camera deals should still be available from that date, stock permitting. 

However, we are still seeing deals from the tail end of Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale that was held across October 11-12, 2022, so there's a chance some prices may remain if we're lucky. 

How to find the best camera deals

Of course, the best Black Friday deals will be on this page as soon as they launch. We’ll bring you the top bargains from all the best retailers when the discounts start rolling in on Black Friday. 

There are a lot of different cameras to choose from, and it can get overwhelming at times, especially for photography beginners. We recommend making the most of our extensive camera knowledge to make sure you buy the right bit of kit for you this Black Friday.
