Black Friday 2019: The 17 Best Camera and Photography Deals (From Nikon to GoPro)

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II for $399 ($80 off)

B&H Photo, Adorama

This little Canon hits the sweet spot for price, features, and image quality (8/10 WIRED Recommends). It’s compact, the tilting touchscreen is a standout feature in this class, and the autofocus is surprisingly speedy.

Olympus Tough TG-6 Waterproof Camera for $349 ($100 off)

Amazon, Adorama

The Olympus TG-6 is a tough little camera that soars where smartphones crash (8/10 WIRED Recommends). It offers excellent image quality for a small camera (complete with support for RAW images), and it’s nearly indestructible. If you want a camera that’s a GoPro-style, go-anywhere machine but retains the lens and sensor quality of a point-and-shoot, the TG-6 is your best bet. The only thing I don’t like about it is the inscrutable menu system. Spend some time with the manual, and make sure you learn all the TG-6’s tricks.

GoPro Hero 7 Black for $300 ($50 off)

$300 (No Accessories): Walmart, Best Buy

$330 (With 2 Batteries and a MicroSD Card): Amazon, Adorama

A similar deal has been going on for a while now, but the price has dropped another $30 for Black Friday. The Hero 7 is a very capable action camera with 4K video (8/10 WIRED Recommends). It lacks the custom menu features of the Hero 8 Black, but the sensor and lens are the same.

DJI Osmo Action for $279 ($100 off)

DJI, Amazon, Best Buy, Adorama

DJI’s Osmo Action is my favorite action cam (8/10, WIRED Recommends), and at this price it’s an even sweeter deal. The front screen makes shooting yourself easier, and the frame rates for video match what you get out of DJI’s drones, saving you some headaches in postproduction if you’re combining drone and handheld footage.

DJI Osmo Pocket for $309 ($90 off)

DJI, Amazon, Best Buy, Adorama

One part camera, one part gimbal, the Osmo Pocket put a stabilized, drone-style camera into a handheld grip (8/10 WIRED Recommends). The result is an easy way to get super smooth video as you run, walk, ski, even skydive. The downside is that it’s pricey, even on sale. If you have a mobile device capable of quality video, the DJI Osmo Mobile (8/10 WIRED Recommends) is worth considering. (Unfortunately, it’s not on sale.)

Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic $120 ($30 off)

Amazon, B&H Photo, Adorama ($125)

Fujifilm’s Instax prints are a breath of fresh air in a digital world. The miniature Polaroid-style prints aren’t the highest-quality images, but they sure are fun. The Instax Mini 90 is the best Instax camera the company makes. The Mini 90 Neo Classic is compact, comes with a long-lasting rechargeable battery, and gives you more creative control with a push-button close-up lens and a double exposure mode. It’s also super easy to take a selfie from just about any angle.
