Ultimate Black Friday Guide for Photographers



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.





Welcome to the Ultimate Black Friday Guide for Photographers! Below are my top picks for Black Friday camera deals after scouring camera websites, amazon, etc. I also share some images captured with the gear I am sharing so you’ll see what you can actually use it for. I don’t promote brands that I don’t personally use, so you can trust that I stand behind my recommendations. Also, by using the links, I get a small commission- woohoo! Don’t hold it against me… I’ve got a kid entering college, and a 4th one on the way!

Ultimate Black Friday Guide for Photographers: Gear

Let’s start with the big stuff: Cameras! My very camera is on sale for $200 off! Get the Canon R5C here if you shoot photo + video. This is a professional-grade camera and video camera; however, if you are wanting an entry level camera or a point and shoot, these are the two I recommend:

Canon Eos Rebel T7 kit (this one is $50 off right now!)
Canon M200 (this is $100 off right now!)

Here is the lighting I use for studio (see the two shots below): Westcott FJ400 light which is $75 off right now!

I also like their ring light, which I used to get the shot below. It’s $30 off right now!

Another fun thing I have started using to spring my own, small pictures from my phone is this little Canon Ivy 2 printer. It’s $30 off right now! This is particularly useful if you want to print photos for a locket. And let me just say, printing photos for locket is not the easiest task. But this makes printing photos for a locket a breeze!

One last thing on my Ultimate Black Friday Guide for Photographers: the Shootsac. Unfortunately, they have sold out. However, you can join the waitlist and save $25 on my favorite lensbag when it comes back in stock!

Benfield difference

What sets Michelin Starred restaurants apart from others? What's the difference between an authentic Louis Vuitton piece and a knockoff? Like these iconic brands, Benfield Photography understands the importance of delivering world-class service with attention to the smallest details.
