Has anyone been paying attention to prior years online black friday deals on camera gear? I've got a couple of 5d3 purchases coming up and it seems like nice timing.

Anyone to watch? Anywhere to get info in advance (canonpricewatch, bfads,net etc)? Think Black Friday or Cyber Monday will be better?

Aloha!

Black friday deals are almost exclusively limited to low end gear, mostly rebel kits or packages. Cano usually offers a rebate of some amount each winter.

If you're looking for 5D MIII deals, your best bet is to study the price history on CanonPriceWatch to get a feel for the possibilities and also set a Price Alert on CanonPriceWatch as well. This way, you can receive a notification the moment a good deal pops up.

Cheers,

Wait for a good rebate, then use CPW to make a good offer on Greentoe.com. That'll get you the lowest possible price.
