Canon and Nikon deals at B&H Photo

B&H Photo is also running a dedicated page with all the Nikon Black Friday deals and of course in a Fairness Doctrine (TM) parallel, all the Canon BF deals.

Nikon offers include DSLRs, mirrorless (now that Nikon has gotten over their “Angry Inch” problem), and of course Lenses, along with related camera accessories and the occasional Coolpix P&S camera.

Likewise the Canon sale includes DSLRs, mirrorless (now that Canon has gotten over their me-too EF-M problem), and of course Lenses and assorted camera-related accessories, along with some Powershots with and without RAW.

You can filter them by price-range but also you can use the thin horizontal line that says “ALL DSLR Cameras Mirrorless Cameras” to filter by product type in case you are only interested in specific product categories (eg DSLRs or P&S etc etc).

More on these later on as, unlike a real computer, I cannot spawn multiple background process to digest it all and post it all at once 🙂

NewEgg Ultimate 24 hour Black Friday sale

NOTE: some of the offers may activate when we reach Friday in the pacific time zone (aka 3am eastern on actual Black Friday)

+ Elements 2020 Combo for $70 with coupon code EMCUUVE43
