The best camera deals for Black Friday And Cyber Monday

* Our sale is now over for 2019 *

You may have noticed that in 2019 Black Friday seems to have started somewhat earlier than previous years, with many major retailers embarking on sales in mid November. Park Cameras have also started with some of the best camera deals for Black Friday available right now. Camera, lens and accessory manufacturers are scrambling to put their gear on discount earlier than ever, securing more sales for them before the end of the year. Obviously this is a fantastic opportunity for photographers, videographers and hobbyists to grab absolute bargains well before Christmas. We wrote a post earlier if you are looking for a gift for a photographer this black Friday which you may also find handy when shopping!

Black Friday is an excellent way for us as an independent retailer to establish long-lasting relationships with photography lovers around the UK. We’re a family run business and have been trading for decades, so it’s a way to thank our fabulous customers who keep coming back to us. What better way to say thank you than with a sale. As an additional sweetener for your Black Friday shopping, all orders over £350 receive a free memory card from us!

What’s in this post?

  • The best deals (why waste time?)
  • How to pick the best deal for you.
  • How deals work (including cashbacks etc.)
  • Upcoming offer in the next few days.

The absolute best Black Friday camera offers this year!

This Black Friday the Fujifilm X-T30 Mirrorless Camera with the 15-45mm OIS Lens Kit has been absolutely flying off our shelves and is a great buy. At £509 this is the most cost effective buy this black friday! Saving you £360 off the original price and also eligible for DOUBLE cashback of £150 from Fujifilm, you do not want to miss out on this deal.

Additionally, the Sony a7 III Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera offers £300 double cashback from Sony but you also receive a free Lexar UHS II 128GB SD card with the camera, a Park Camera exclusive, making this a best buy.

How to pick the right deal for you during the sale

Whatever level of photographer or videographer you may be, it’s a good idea to know what you want, need and simply love before diving in. The Black Friday sale event doesn’t last long so doing some groundwork now is a great idea. You may have a specific item in mind, such as a lens or new camera body, a compact model or even accessories. Getting a free memory card along with discounted prices can make it worthwhile right now
Watch reviews, read reviews or better still, try out gear in stores - we have London and near Brighton showrooms packed to the brim with new and used equipment.

What are the different types of deals available?

1. Cashback
This is the most popular way for manufacturers to extend their gratitude to customers buying their equipment during Black Friday. 
How it works:
You purchase an item at the listed price, then contact the manufacturer after 30 days to claim the cashback amount. I have done this myself (everyone loves a bargain!) and it really presents an easy way to save quite considerable sums on new camera gear. Cashbacks can be up to £500 or more and are often doubled during the sale season. Watch out however as they do expire, so you need to be a little organised and put your claim in online, as well as keeping a copy of your receipt and serial numbers. Here are some of 2019’s best camera manufacturer cashback deals from the source: 
2. Price reductions
A good old fashioned price reduction is easy to understand and presents a straight forward saving. For example if a lens is £700 and is 20% off during Black Friday, you will save £140! Luckily for our customers we often reduce the price of products then also add a manufacturer cashback, so you’re saving even more! Check these departments for deals right now:

3. Free gifts
We like to give our customers a gift once in a while to say thank you. Some of the best free photography gifts included with a sale are high speed SD cards, free battery grips, camera bags and vouchers off future purchases. We really hope all of these are appropriate and useful for photographers.

Fast approaching deals:

Sigma lenses offers will be starting in the next day or so
Used equipment also starts soon - complete with six month warranty (See our post here about second hand and whether you should buy used gear or not).
