Black Friday Camera Deal Predictions

  • Nikon and Canon bundles will often require mail-in rebates
  • Camera bag deals will be priced from $25
  • GoPro cameras will be bundled with $50 or $75 gift cards

It's common to see Nikon and Canon DSLR camera bundles around Black Friday. Often these packages will include at least one lens, but select deals will offer more.

One of the most popular bundles we saw last year featured a Canon EOS camera, a lens, a photo printer, and photo paper for around $500 after a mail-in rebate. Cheaper bundles included another Canon EOS camera body, two lenses, an SD card, and a shoulder bag for around $450.

We've already seen a GoPro Hero5 drop to $220 this year, so we could definitely see that low again for Black Friday.

Deals on refurbished cameras will also be prevalent, from brands like Nikon, Canon, and Olympus. Nikon bundles could go for as little as $400 and include a refurb body, multiple lenses, a case, and possibly a gift card. New Nikon bundles will be popular, too, although they'll cost more. Last year, a D3400 body with three lenses was priced at $700 for Cyber Monday.

If you're shopping for accessories, some of the best deals we saw last year were for camera bags. Adorama and B&H Photo Video both offered notable deals at the lowest prices we could find. These bags were suitable to multiple styles of cameras, including DSLR and smaller, mirrorless varieties.

DSLR lenses will also be available this Black Friday, although the best deals could be on refurbished models for Canon. Last year, a refurb 50mm Canon lens went for $80.

GoPro cameras are also likely to be bundled for the season. Last year, savvy shoppers could snag a GoPro Hero5 Black with a $50 gift card from Walmart or Target for around $350. We've already seen the Hero5 drop to $220 this year, so we could definitely see that low again for Black Friday.

The Hero6 was bundled with a $75 gift card at B&H Photo Video and Best Buy during Black Friday 2017, for $450 and $500, respectively. This year it's dropped to $339, which would be a plausible drop for Black Friday 2018.
