Now is the Time to Snag a Deal when Buying a New Camera

If you’re been thinking about buying a new camera, now is the time. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are a great time to score huge savings! Not only can you get a great deal on a camera, you’ll also find that some department stores also offer bundles at a substantial savings. If you’re in the market for a new point and shoot or DSLR, you may find one with extra lenses or memory cards. When it comes to cameras, it pays to shop around to find the best deal, but first, you need to know what type of camera you’re shopping for.
You can buy the new Polaroid Instant Film Camera for under $100. It comes in several fun colors and would make a fun stocking stuffer for a teen girl. Just think of how much fun she could have at their next sleepover or birthday party!


If you’re planning a getaway to a warm weather destination like the Caribbean over Christmas break, you may want to buy a camera that is waterproof so you can take it underwater with you. The Nikon Coolpix S33 Waterproof Digital Camera will help you capture all of those underwater moments, from diving into the hotel pool, to snorkeling along the reef, you won’t realize how much this camera will come in handy until you use it. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the kids playing with it near the pool. Allow them time with the camera to see your vacation through their eyes.


The GoPro will capture those fast moments on the slopes as your family skis and snowboards. But the fun won’t stop there. You can buy different mounts to take this camera virtually anywhere. Skydiving? No problem. Jump out of the plane with this strapped to your chest for some amazing aerial photos. Motorcycle fan? Strap this to your helmet to relive your ride over and over.  Road tripping? Take along the GoPro for great time-lapse footage of your trip.

The Panasonic Lumix ZS60 is a great point and shoot that offers some upgraded features for those who want a little bit more control over their photography. It offers the ability to shoot video in 4K and with built-in Wi-Fi, users can easily transfer photos from their camera to their phone for almost instant social media sharing.

Point and shoot cameras offer a host of possibilities, but if you’re ready to upgrade to a DSLR, Canon and Nikon both offer amazing cameras and a host of accessories to fit your needs. A basic DSLR is perfect for an amateur photographer who is learning how to shoot in manual and will grow with you with the purchase of additional lens as your skill level increases.
