Windows users have their very own deals too.

You can get to it with a web browser or by opening the Windows App Store on a Windows 10 device. The app supports the following processors: “x86, arm, x64” on PCs.
PS: if you want to see all the 10c apps and entertainment deals, here is a link that opens the Windows Store app directly to the page with all the sales. Other 10c apps include a couple of dictionaries, a couple of zip file utilities, an RSS reader, and more.
The main Canon DSLR deal featured in Black Friday Ads is the Canon D-Rebel T5 with the 18-55 and 75-300 non-USM lenses for $400. Fast forward to now, and already the internets have price-matched that offer, you can get it for $400 at Amazon and Adorama (with lots of free extras) and B&H Photo (with different set of free extras).
Another wave of specials is out, this is a big block at B&H Photo [corrected link; this is an ever-scrolling page, keep clicking the orange “Load More” button over there to see more offers] featuring different brands and here’s a block of specials at Adorama (6400+ items) including a featured Canon sale and a Rokinon sale… I will go through them and digest them (no pun intended) as soon as I can find an uninterrupted block of time…
Pure Android at a big discount won’t last long. As of a 4pm ET recheck, all four options are sold out and cannot be ordered…
This round expired…
The $400 sale price expired, it is now going for $450 which appears to be its new “regular” price?
One of the current Amazon Gold Box [corrected link] is the new condition Lytro Illum light field camera offered for $400 with free shipping by Woot through Amazon, with the order fulfilled by Amazon (so Prime shipping). Offer ends by 2pm eastern on Friday or earlier if sold out.
PS: lots more coming up, I have to reboot because the browsers are leaking memory by the gigabyte after non-stop use for many hours
The Nikon DSLR deal that appears in many of the Black Friday Ads is the Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit (18-55, 55-200, both VR) for $500. The internets have now matched that deal, you can get the kit, with a wireless adapter, remote controller, 16GB card and $10~ promotional rewards for $500 at Adorama… Optionally you can add additional Nikon SLR lenses for a combined purchase discount (see the yellow “Special Offer” section)… Contrasting that, the D3200 2-lens VR kit goes for $400…
UPDATE: this offer also landed at Amazon for $500.

The Black Friday Ad digest (going through them and pointing out the camera and photo related items) continues at the mega-post at the main blog with even more additions. There are still more retailers that are being added as we speak. So far the Nikon D3300 and the Canon D-Rebel T5 are appearing in many of the ads, and in our MAP-controlled world, they have the same prices everywhere.
The Sony a6000 with the 16-50mm lens is bundled with a $50 Adorama Gift Certificate along with a 64GB Lexar SDXC and 1yr Leaf spills-n-drops warranty for $550 at Adorama in the black A6000. The silver A6000 gets the $50 gift card too but receives a different set of freebies: Vivitar 3pc filter kit, 16GB Toshiba, cleaning kit, Slinger holster bag, and memory card case… You can see all options and bundles at Adorama here.
This kit was going for $680 last week, see the “Take Pictures With” segment of the Mirrorless Price Charts. Meanwhile the body only was going for $480 last week, but now…
A total of eight different Wacom graphics tablets are participating in a free gift promotion at Adorama.

The $70 Wacoms get a $25 gift card. The $100 Wacoms get a $30 gift card. The $200 Wacom gets a $50 gift card. Not a bad percentage
Storage and backups on the go, the USB flash drives can be. The 128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD128TBOP-GE, is currently on sale for $25 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit one per customer. If you try to adjust the quantity in the shopping cart, the shopping cart will grab you by the ear The usual free shipping terms apply (2-day Prime or with a $35+ non-Prime). This is standard size USB flash drive.
Speaking of PNY, a total of 11 PNY memory cards are on sale at Amazon featuring SD and microSDs. The SDs are 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
In other storage related sales, Amazon has a sale of 15 Sandisk products featuring SSDs, SD, microSD cards and flash drives (both regular and wireless). Of the Ultra SD cards, the 64GB Class 10 SDXC UHS-I goes for $25.60 (limit 5) and the 128GB Class 10 SDXC UHS-I goes for $52.39 (limit 5). These go up to 80MB/sec transfer speeds. They are elementproofs with a 10 year warranty.
There’s also the previously mentioned 128GB microSDs for $40. In an ideal world all these would have been rounded up in a single post, but we are now entering the Chaos and Disorder of Black Friday season
The Panasonic GM5 with the 12-32mm kit lens is currently going for $470 in red at Adorama and $470 in black at B&H Photo and Adorama where you can optionally add the Panasonic DMW-GTC1 Conversion Lens for +$20 using the yellow “Special Offer” section.
Speaking of M43rds, the $99 promotion on the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 (m43) lens is still good at Amazon by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo… It is not shipping immediately but you can lock up the price…
Walgreens Photo has another coupon promotion, coupon code BESTDEAL gets you 50% off Everything Photo from canvas prints to photo prints to calendars to gift prints to wood panels to mug prints. The coupon can be used five times before it expires Saturday 11/28/15 (Walgreens is in the central time zone, so it expires at 11:59pm central time).
Walgreens Photo is jumping into the spirit of giving with a free 8×10 inch enlargement when you enter coupon code 1FREE8X10 at their website. Coupon expires Sat 11/28/15. Limit one per customer. Free store pickup or whatever shipping fees currently apply for online orders.
The Nikon D3200 is a stubborn DSLR. It refuses to go away. It even finds itself in the Black Friday spotlight. The Nikon D3200 two-lens DX VR kit (18-55, 55-200) is now on sale for $400 with frees shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and Adorama and B&H Photo et al.
NOTE: the newer Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit will be offered for $500 during Black Friday (currently goes for $600). So there’s a $100 trade-off price-wise between the D3200 and D3300 two-lens VR kits.
Another decision point is whether you need the two DX VR lenses or not. You can get the D3200 body only in refurbished condition with a 90 day Nikon warranty for $245 at Adorama.
Another data point, you can get the D3200 two-lens kit with the non-VR lenses, in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 by BuyDig on eBay.
And now we resume our countdown to the madness, posting deals here, while in parallel updating the Black Friday Ads breakdown. We start with a few 128GB microSD memory card sales, of interest for phones, tablets, and some of the newer smaller digital cameras and action cameras that take microSD instead of full-size SD. The Samsungs come with a full-size SD adapter. Both PNY and Samsung are of the element-proof variety.
+ 128GB Samsung EVO microSDXC for $40 (limit 3)
+ 128GB PNY microSDXC for $40
+ 64GB Samsung EVO Class 10 MicroSDXC for $17 (limit 3)
+ 128GB Corsair USB 3.0 Slider Flash drive for $38 (limit 5) or 64GB for $20 (limit 3)
UPDATE: oops, I forgot to add this one to the list, the 200GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC is on sale for $100 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and also at Adorama. It comes with a full SD adapter. Interesting that they went from 128GB to 200GB instead of 256GB.
