Want a new camera? Check out these Black Friday deals
It's Black Friday and the deals are flying. We've already covered laptops, smartwatches, gaming peripherals, phones, headphones, and tablets, now it's time for cameras.
We covered the US, the UK, and Europe (specifically, Germany) to find the best deals on digital cameras. We're a bit surprised by just how slim the pickings are but hey, there are still choices to be had.
The Panasonic Lumix S5 is the best-kept secret in the world of cameras. It's a few years old but is still very competitive, specs-wise, with the latest and greatest full-frame mirrorless cameras. But it's often discounted and Panasonic has superb deals that pair it with one or even two lenses, or a second battery. In Germany, the Lumix S5 comes with the excellent (and very wide) 20-60mm kit lens and a free 50mm 1.8 lens, while in the UK it ships with the kit lens and a free battery. In the US you just get the camera.

Canon isn't big on discounts. The now-old Canon R6 is the most-affordable current Canon full-frame mirrorless camera. It's an excellent camera, though thanks to the brand, it comes at a premium over the Panasonic Lumix S5, which is a better option in many people's eyes, even without the substantial price difference.

The Sony a7 IV is Sony's current flagship enthusiast full-frame mirrorless camera. In typical Sony fashion, it's the priciest of all its competitors but Amazon has some discounts on it. On the other hand, the a7C is even more affordable. It's basically a smaller a7 III without an AF joystick but it you can find an a7 III for less money, it may be worth it - we did but it sold out.

Th Nikon Z6 II is a direct rival to the Sony a7 IV and Panasonic Lumix S5 and is an excellent option. It's also well-priced at the moment, especially with a 24-70mm f/4 lens. The Nikon Z fc is an affordable APS-C option with a kit lens.

It's a great way to shut up the egotistical DSLR photographers who flex way too much, though.

Gcam is literally a complete antithesis of the true nature of photography.
