The flagship-class Canon EOS-1D X Mark II has been slashed to just $2,999, which is an enormous saving of $3,000 on its RRP - I still wouldn't buy it if you're looking to save some serious money before Christmas.

SAVE $3,000 at B&H With 16fps continuous shooting, ISO50-409,600 sensitivity, 4K 60p / 1080p 120p and Canon's brilliant Dual Pixel AF, all powered by dual image processors, this former flagship DSLR is perfect for pros – if you are happy with the outdated tech.

While this is the lowest price this tank-like DSLR camera has ever sold for, and offers formidable firepower to sports and wildlife shooters, I still think there are much better deals to be had than this old DSLR, so I have listed two of the best Black Friday / Cyber Monday Canon camera that are still the best price-busting deals around!

The latest high-megapixel mirrorless from Canon offers you a massive 45-megapixel sensor with 8K/30fps RAW, and 4K/120fps 10-bit internal video - this is a camera built for professional content creators who seek the very latest in stills or video technology.

Canon's most entry-level mirrorless camera is also its smallest and lightest – but it's still quite a beast! Its 24.1MP APS-C can shoot 6.5fps bursts and 4K 24p video, and it comes with a versatile 18-45mm lens (28.8-72mm equivalent).  

While these two cameras represent two ends of the camera spectrum - the Canon R100 being a great contender for the best camera for beginners, while the Canon EOS R5 is set for the more professional and enthusiastic market and certainly takes pride of place in our best mirrorless camera guide.

While a $100 discount is a small reduction to the Canon EOS R100, now at a price of  $499 that is a record bargain on this ready-to-shoot package that includes the 18-45mm lens. 

The better deal is the $900 discount on the Canon EOS R5 which offers a 45MP sensor, 8K RAW video, and even 4K 120fpos slo motion video means that this is a content creator's delight.
