There are a lot of great deals floating around in the digital camera world for Black Friday. Ritz Camera, who offers free shipping and no sales tax as a standard, has some of the better deals that I’ve seen.
Ritz – SanDisk 4GB Extreme III CF Memory Card BUY-3 THEN FREE REBATE OFFER – FREE (After Rebate)
Ritz – SanDisk 4GB Extreme III SD Memory Card BUY-3 THEN FREE REBATE OFFER – FREE (After Rebate)
Amazon Black Friday Deals – Includes deals like:
- Buy a Pentax K20D, get a 12MP Pentax Optio A40 free
- Nikon D200 for $799
- Free 8GB memory card with certain Fuji cameras
- Get 2 Free accessories with the Flip Mino HD (as an aside, I just bought one for myself and love it so far . . . hate that I missed the free accessories though)
- Buy a lens, get a free Tiffen filter
Adorama Black Friday Deals Page – Actually, it’s pretty lame so far aside from a few good deals on some memory cards and point and shoot cameras. Hopefully, they will add some more.
Calumet Black Friday & Cyber Monday Page 11.26.08 thru 12.01.08 – Nothing really stands out here as a killer Black Friday deal. However, if you need some seamless paper, a muslin background or two, or are looking at their light control panel systems, then you’ll find these in the 15% – 25% off range. Other than that, its pretty lame as far as the “door buster” type deals are concerned.
Dell Home Black Friday Deals Page – Some solid computer deals with laptops and desktops as low as $299, although don’t expect to push Photoshop too hard with the specs on these. However, some decent-spec’d desktops are in the $650 range. Not bad at all. The below SD1100 is the only digital camera deal at the moment, but check back with Dell throughout the weekend and into Cyber Monday for additional deals.
