It’s hard to go wrong with Canon’s Mark series – since its inception, each model has showcased the best DSLRs have to offer. With the inclusion of a versatile f/2.8 24-70mm lens included with the Mark III body, this bundle isn’t easy to pass up. Great for Canon users looking to upgrade!
2. Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Camera Body w/18-55mm & 55-210mm Lenses
Admit it – with all of the hype surrounding mirrorless cameras, you’ve likely considered setting your DSLR aside in favor of embracing the latest technology. If you’re serious about making the switch, why not opt for the nearly universally acclaimed Sony A6000? This deal includes two zoom lenses in addition to the body, which should come as great news for those seeking out a fresh start.
3. Wewdigi EV5000 Action Camera
Action cameras are all the rage for good reason. Thanks to their small size and durability, they venture where few cameras dare to while retaining HD quality footage. What you may not know is that it’s possible to grab a decent action camera for well under $50.
4. Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera Bundle
Photography doesn’t have to be all serious! This adorable camera processes retro instant film effortlessly for a reasonable price. The Black Friday bundle even includes a few packs of film, allowing you to start shooting right away!
5. Nikon D3400 DSLR w/ 18-55mm & 70-300mm Lenses
Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera with 2 Zoom Lenses
Don’t worry, Nikon lovers – we’ve got you covered too. For the burgeoning photographer in your life, consider the Nikon D3400. Unlike most kit bundles, Nikon offers two lenses with the D3400. At $500, you’re unlikely to find a starter’s kit for a better value.
1. Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 USD Zoom Lens
Telephoto lenses can prove to be an expensive investment. Luckily, B&H has an offer that’s sure to make things a bit easier on your wallet. With anti-shake mechanisms installed, weather-resistant construction, and silent yet speedy USD motor, this top of the line Tamron offers only the best.
2. Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 Prime Lens
It’s never a bad idea to have a reliable wide-angle prime lens on hand. The Fujinon 14mm almost ventures into fisheye territory but proves to be an excellent choice for landscape photographers in particular. This prime features excellent functionality, a lightweight build, and a shallow depth of field.
3. Lensbaby Limited Edition Velvet & Twist Gift Set
Have a little fun and indulge in this limited edition gift. A surefire way to entertain a photographer, this set includes the Velvet 85mm, Velvet 56mm, and the Twist 60mm. Available for Canon, Nikon, and Sony models alike!
Gear & Accessories
1. Vanguard BIIN 47 Sling Bag
What good is a top notch camera without a safe means of transporting it? Especially designed to accommodate large cameras (and all of the accessories that go with them), the Vanguard BIIN 47 can aid just about any photographer. The sling design allows users to quickly access gear while keeping your possesions neat and secure.
2. SanDisk – Ultra PLUS 128GB SDXC UHS-I Memory Card
Everybody’s got to store their images somewhere. Sandisk’s 128GB SD card can store somewhere in the ballpark of 9000 12MB RAW files at any given time. Selling for about 80% off its market value, now’s as good a time as any to snag one for yourself.
3. DJI Osmo Mobile Gimbal Stabilizer
Videographers can breathe a sigh of relief – there’s plenty of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals out there to benefit filmmakers. Among them is the DJI Osmo Mobile Gimbal. Especially designed with smaller cameras and smartphones in line, this little tool can come in handy for amateurs and professionals alike.
4. Apple iPad Pro (10.5″ display)
As the industry continues to embrace digital innovations, more and more photographers are opting to ditch print portfolios. Image makers often opt for the ultra portable retina display the Apple iPad has to offer. Aside from displaying digital photos in near perfect clarity, the iPad also has the advantage of being able to display video to potential clients.
5. Flashpoint 19″ Fluorescent AC Powered Ring Light
No home studio is complete without an ample supply of lighting. For any photographer specializing in portraiture, a beautifying ring light is a must. This particular model comes with an adjustable reinforced arm, making adjustments and positioning easier than ever.
