While many of the Black Friday deals are still available, some of the deals are sold out by now. However, considering that today is a Cyber Monday, there are plenty of great deals available on electronics that were not available before. I compiled a list of last minute hand-picked deals for our readers, so check these out!
Black Friday is right around the corner and I wanted to make one article where I will collect the best available deals from a variety of difference sources. Please note that I will be updating this post very often with the latest info, some of which is going to be time-sensitive. I would recommend to bookmark this page and revisit it several times on a daily basis until the end of Cyber Monday to make sure that you are able to take advantage of all the promotions.
Updated 11/24/2017: New Apple MacBook Pro deal, while supplies last. Added a bunch of PC part deals.
Although we are still a few weeks away from the big holiday sales in the USA, a number of camera manufacturers have already started their instant rebate programs. Nikon has started their popular instant lens rebate program, while Fuji has gone big on their GFX medium format sales, offering rebates up to $1,000 when bundling the GFX 50S with a lens, or up to $550 per lens when buying GF lenses individually. Fuji is also offering some X-series deals on lenses, but they are not as attractive as the ones we had previously seen in the past. Lastly, Olympus is offering a great rebate program as well, with instant rebates up to $200 on their gear such as the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and other popular lenses. Below are some of the best deals we recommend to our readers.
We are running a big Labor Day sale at Photography Life with a 33% discount on all PL courses and up to 20% discount on Sensor Gel Stick products. The sale is only good until 11:59 PM MST on Monday, September 4th, 2017, so it is a 24-hour sale. Just a reminder that we have a total of 3 courses that we have produced so far – our Level 1: Photography Basics, Level 1: Workflow and Post-Processing and Level 3: Landscape Photography eBook (we also have a heavy discount on the Level 1 Bundle, which includes both Level 1 courses).
Due to rising costs of hosting and other expenses, we decided to add some advertising space to Photography Life, which has always been and always will be a free photography resource. Some of our readers were a bit annoyed by the often intrusive ads (which, unfortunately, we have little to no control of) and they requested that we add an option to support Photography Life with a monthly donation option, which would completely remove all the ads on the site. Others have been asking us to give a good option to subscribe on a monthly basis or simply donate funds to support our work. I am happy to report that this feature has finally been added to our site, and as of today you can become a member and enjoy completely ad-free experience. You can choose your level of support from Basic ($0.99 per month) all the way to Gold ($19.99 per month), depending on how much support you can and want to provide us and all three membership levels give you the same browsing and reading experience.
Starting from this week, many US retailers will be having special holiday sales for cameras, lenses, lighting equipment, various accessories and other photo gear. Instead of spamming our readers with constant deal alerts, I decided to create a single page where we will be hosting the best deals that are available as of now. The page is called “Current Deals” and it is accessible from the top navigation of this site, right next to “Contact Us”. So far I posted some great deals on the Nikon D600, third party lenses from Sigma and Tamron, Memory card deals and more.
