So over the last few years a weird "holiday" called Black Friday has made it's way over the pond from our American friends. Although there are deals out there, images of people fighting over TVs and sandwich toasters has turned many people off the idea. Whatever your opinion on this, a bargin is still a bargin! So on that note, here are some of the best ones we've turned up. With only a couple hours left, it's time to go grab that credit card.
1) Sony A7
When Sony released their A7 line, it made some serious waves among photographers, and for good reason. Light, compact with a 24 megapixel full Frame sensor and other features such as wireless connectivity and Fast Intelligent AF, makes this camera one to grab. This may not be the latest model, but the body with a 28-70mm lens for under £800 is an absolute steal.
2) Nikon 1 AW1
If you love getting outside and exploring the world around you, you're going to want to document it, however having to worry about keeping your gear safe will spoil the trip. Thats where the Nikon 1 Aw1 Steps in. Waterproof, Shockproof, freeze proof and finally dust proof, we think you'll have a hard time finding an environment where this camera can't churn out great quality images. With almost £150 off this great little camera, you'd be mad not to add it to your kit bag.
On the subject of kit bags, how abut this one from Calumet? Us here at Motel personally use these bags so we can attest to their great versatility and durability. Whats the point in having all this great equipment if you can't store and travel with it all safely? With £60 off these great bags, now is the time to grab one for yourself!
Panasonic has been making some serious strides in recent years with their Gh2/3/4 which have constantly evolved and brought in big features such a 4K video. Now heres the little brother to their flagship the G7 at a crazy price. With features such as 4k video, 4k photo and good low light performance. This is a first exploration into 4K or as a excellent B roll camera. And at £339 with a 14-42mm lens this is probably one of the cheapest ways to get into 4K.
Ok, so it's not 100% free. You have to spend over £30 to get it, but with all the "Cyber Monday" deals on their website, that shouldn't be too hard. You can never have too much storage, and if you're going down the 4K route, you're going to need all you can get your hands on!
