21 Awesome Digital Camera and Accessory Deals

Just in time for Christmas, here’s 21 deals (and a couple of bonus suggestions) at a variety of retailers that I’ve picked out for you last minute shoppers out there.

Some of the items I’ve picked are real deals as refurbished or used items, so there may be only a few or just one of them. I can’t promise any of these links will last very long. So, get while the getting is good.

1. Nikon D700 for $2160! One of the best ones comes from Ritz Camera, who’s giving 10% off of all in stock orders when you use PayPal Checkout! Plus free shipping on orders over $100 and no tax collected. While 10% off may not sound like much, consider this . . . . The Nikon D700 is $2399 at Ritz and with the 10% discount, it becomes $2160 – that’s $2160 out the door; no tax, no shipping, real dollars. Talk about a deal! Now, go get creative. Here’s the link: Ritz 10% Off.

2. Canon 40D (body) for $799.95 at B&H Photo

3. Refurbished Canon Rebel XTi w/ 18-55mm lens for $369.95 at Adorama [Read more…]

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.

Dell – Black Friday Savings – Canon SD1100 Only $159.99 after $60 Instant Savings + free 4GB memory card!
