Amazon prime day is upon us. Unfortunately, Sony doesn’t have a lot of great deals on native lenses or cameras, so your best bet is to buy aftermarket or used gear. Here are the best Sony camera deals going on right now.
Best Sony Camera deals
The best prime deal for Sony this year is the Sony A7iii. Be sure to check out all the deals at B&H. They seem to have the best deals on cameras.
Best Deals on Sony lenses
- Sony 10-20mm f4
- Sony 35mm 1.8
- Sony 11mm 1.8
Used Sony Cameras on Amazon
I’ve been buying used Sony cameras on Amazon for the last 5 years, and their used gear is top-notch and always in good to excellent condition. If it says, acceptable, it’s usually in good to excellent quality. It may come in a scuffed-up box but the cameras are usually in pristine condition.
The best deal for Samyang/Rokinon lenses this year is the Samyang 75mm 1.8. Most of these lenses are about 5-7% off but the 24mm 2.8 is 54% off. Check out all the Samyang lens deals here.
My favorite prime deals:
The Sony ZV-10 is on sale. It’s not a huge deal but it’s not bad, and this is still the best beginner camera for YouTubers on a budget.
Best place to find camera deals
Here are some of the best places to get camera deals:
Online retailers such as Amazon, B&H Photo, and Adorama often offer competitive prices and discounts on cameras and photography gear. They also often offer the convenience of shopping from home and free or low-cost shipping.
Camera manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, and Sony often offer promotions and deals directly through their websites. This can be a good place to look for deals on new camera models or specific packages.
Local camera stores
Local camera stores may offer deals on cameras and photography gear, and they can be a great place to get hands-on experience with different models before making a purchase.
Refurbished cameras, sold by manufacturers or authorized resellers, can offer a significant discount compared to new cameras. Just be sure to buy from a reputable source and check the warranty and return policy before making a purchase.
Online marketplaces such as eBay and Facebook Marketplace can sometimes offer good deals on used or secondhand cameras. However, it is important to be cautious when buying from individuals and to verify the authenticity of the product before making a purchase.
Astrophotography lens deals
The Samyang 24mm 1.8 is the perfect lens for astrophotography. This is the only lens I know that it completely dedicated to night star photography. It has a mode for setting the focus to infinity, so you don’t have to worry about it. This is a huge lifesaver and time saver if you’ve done any night sky photography.
The Zhiyun Weebill S is sometimes on sale for $279. Now that’s not a great deal, but if you’re looking for a gimbal I’d go with the DJI RSC 2. It’s a little heavier than the Weebill S but it’s so much more worth it, and I’d get it used at amazon here. I’ve found that used items on amazon that say acceptable are usually in good to excellent condition.
If you’re iPhone or computer storage is almost full, grab a synology disktation 1522+. This allows you to access your photos and videos just like google photos, and you access any files, music, videos, or movies from anywhere.
There are not a ton of storage options, but right now you can get a SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD for $159. This is the best deal I’ve seen on these SSDs and don’t expect the price to drop lower on black Friday.
You can also find the 128gb Sandisk SD Card for only $17. It’s going to give you the best write speeds, but if your on a budget this is a great SD card for any camera. I’ve actually been using this same SD card on my A7iv for 4k video and photos. Just don’t plan to use it if you’re shooting in 60p or S&Q.
Need a new portrait lens?
You can’t go wrong with the Rokinon AF 75mm F1.8. This lens is perfect for portraits and it’s just about as sharp as the revered Sony 85mm 1.8. It’s great for wedding, engagements, or even close-up product shots. It’s even great for video.
Underwater camera housings
If you have the Sony A7iii or A7riii and you need an underwater housing check out Seafrogs. They’re an affordable underwater housing compared to aquatech.
Overall, there are several places to look for camera deals, including online retailers, manufacturer websites, sales events, local camera stores, refurbished cameras, and online marketplaces. By comparing prices and shopping around, you may be able to find the best deal for your needs.
