Here are some great deals on photography gear, services, and other things of particular interest to photographers for Black Friday 2022.

There’s a torrent of deals at this time of year, but some are better than others. I’m trying to pick out some of the better ones here on gear and services I know, use, and would recommend. It’s a running list. I’ll add new ones as they go live or catch my eye. And many of the deals are embargoed, which means I can’t show them here until they go live–so be sure to check back.

And with the current serious global supply chain problems leading to shortages and delays, it’s a great year to get in early with any purchases that you want to arrive in time for the holidays.

Some of these links are affiliate links, which means I may earn a commission for purchases using links on this page.

Photography Gear Black Friday Deals

I have some handpicked selections below, but there are far too many deals on photography deals to list them all. So if you’d like to see the full listings at some of the major retailers, you can find their deals pages here:

Camera Gear

Cameras & Lenses

Tripods & Mounts

  • Peak Design – 15% OFF all tripods. Peak Design has made thoughtful design an art form, and their products are reliably good. While they started with clips and straps, they’ve since moved onto bags and, yes, tripods. And their travel tripod doesn’t disappoint–it’s super portable and well-designed. It’s available in aluminum and carbon versions. No code required. Ends 11/28.
  • Cotton Carrier – 25% OFF Sitewide. If you’re heading off-trail, Cotton Carrier make some really useful camera hauling gear. They have various kinds of harnesses and vests that are especially good for lugging heavy gear while also keeping it close and ready to shoot. No code required.
  • Spider Camera Holster – 35% OFF Sitewide. Another innovative maker of camera straps, holders, and vests, Spider has 35% off everything on their site. Use code BF22. Ends 11/29.

Lighting

  • MagMod – 15-30% OFF. The magnetic attachment system developed by MagMod can be a game changer for on-location shooting with speedlights. They have a tiered Black Friday deal, with the discount percentage increasing the more you spend. No code required. Ends 11/28.
  • Lumecube – Up to 35% OFF. Lumecube have some really innovative and useful lighting products, especially with highly portable RGB panel lights and ring lights. A number of their products have good discounts. Ends 11/27.

Misc Accessories

  • SanDisk 4TB Extreme Portable SSD V2 – $500 OFF @ B&H (final price $299.99). For some seriously good on-the-go storage space, the SanDisk Extreme range is well worth a look. These small portable drives use SSD, which makes them naturally more resistant to the bumps and knocks you get on the road. And they’re fast. 4TB will be useful for photographers on long trips, but especially for those shooting video.
  • Synology 6-Bay NAS Enclosure – $180 OFF @ B&H (final price $719.99). If you need to expand your local backup, Synology make great enclosures for housing multiple hard drives. Stick some 4TB drives in these (it doesn’t come with hard drives), you can easily get another 24TB of local, fast storage space. Or configure as a RAID for extra reliability. There are also good deals on their 2 and 4-bay enclosures. Ends 11/28.

Specialty Photography Gear

  • Backscatter – Up to 60% OFF – Underwater photography specialists Backscatter have a bunch of good deals on underwater cameras and lighting. If you’re looking to get into underwater photography, the Olympus TG-6 is a great place to start, and they have some really good deals on that. And if you’re shooting underwater with a GoPro, check out the Backscatter Flip filter system–it makes a real improvement.
  • SpyderX Pro Display Color Calibration – $40 OFF @ B&H Photo. The Spyder range from Datacolor has been among the best screen color calibration tools for a long time now to help you get reliable color matching for your image workflow. The SpyderX is the latest model, and it’s now $129.99.

Used Camera Gear

  • KEH – 10% OFF Sitewide. KEH is one of my favorite places to buy used gear. They have a huge selection of gear, and I can always count on the condition description being accurate, and they have top-notch customer service. Use code BF10E. Ends 11/28.

Rental Camera Gear

  • Borrowlenses – 25% OFF. Looking to try out some new or different gear, or need something specialized for an upcoming shoot? Renting is a great option for that. Applies to all rentals so long as they arrive by 1/31/2022. Use code CYBERMONDAY22. Ends 11/29.

Photographer Websites

  • SmugMug – 40% OFF. Smugmug is one of the most popular and feature-rich options for hosting and selling your images online. Includes unlimited photo storage, secure sharing, and a custom photo website. You can sign up for a free trial, and if you purchase by December 11, you’ll get 40% off new accounts. No code required. Ends 11/28.

Photography Apps & Software Black Friday Deals

Digital photography can involve a lot of software. Here are some good Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on photography software and tools I’ve found useful, from image editing to sharing.

Image Editing & Image Management

There are plenty of other great apps aside from Lightroom for editing images. Here are some good deals on some of the best.

  • DxO PureRAW 2 – $40 OFF – DxO specializes in image editing and optical corrections. They’re running deals of up to 50% off on their photo editing software, but the one that particularly caught my eye is PureRAW 2 for $89 (usually $129). I’ve covered PureRAW here before, and it does a really good and unique job of improving RAW files before they even get into Lightroom or Photoshop. No code required. Ends 11/28.
  • Rawsie – 20% OFF First Year. Rawsie uses their own secret-sauce algorithm to reduce the filesize of RAW files. And that means they take up less backup storage space, use less bandwidth when moving them to and from the cloud, and gives you potentially snappier computer response when editing them. In my experience, the results are much more impressive than using Adobe’s DNG converter by itself. And there’s also integration with Lightroom. Use coupon BF22 at checkout. Ends 12/2.

Cloud Backup & Storage

  • Backblaze – 20% OFF for new Personal Backup customers. Use code BLAZEON22. Ends 11/28.

Photography Classes & Learning Black Friday Deals

Online photography classes are great ways to make improve your skills or expand into something new. Here are some Black Friday deals worth a look.
