Photographers now have a wild access to the best deals of the year. Black Friday marks the beginning of the Christmas Shopping season and we are currently in the Black Friday Week leading up to Friday, November 23. The specials extend into Cyber Monday, November 26.

D-SLRs, lenses, flashguns/speedlights, memory cards and all sorts of accessories will be available at horrendously lower prices that normal. This is like ‘Fashion Night Out’ for Photographers!
