Black Friday is an ideal time to pick up some new gear. Here are some of 2019’s best deals.


We love a deal as much as you do, so for Black Friday 2019, we’ve done the hard work for you and collected some of the best photography and video-related deals we could find. We’ll keep updating this lest as more come up, so be sure to check back in.



Olympus has more than a few deals for Black Friday, and better yet, they’re running until 2 December. A few highlights include 20% Off the entire M-Zuiko lens range, a £150 saving on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II plus get a free 30mm Macro lens (by redemption), and a £200 saving on the OM-D E-M1X.

Datacolor’s Black Friday deals are running all the way until 15 December, and you can save up to £100 on the SpyderX Studio and SpyderX Capture Pro. So if it’s colour management you’re after, this should be an early port of call. It’s advanced kit, but for the more advanced photographers among you, now may be the time to buy.

Mac Group

If you’ve been considering a new tripod for a while, Mac Group has a Black Friday deal on the limited edition of the award-winning Benro Slim tripod. The Tall Slim tripod is a great option for photographers and videographers needing lightweight, compact kit. The deal includes a Benro single action ball head, an Arca-style quick release plate and a carry case.

The Tall Slim tripod kits are available now with SRP’s of £100 for the aluminium model and £140 for the carbon. Check out the deal on the Benro website.



If it’s photo editing software you’re after this Black Friday, PortraitPro from Anthropics is one good option. V19 has just launched, and versions are available from £35. During Black Friday week, you can get a 20% discount with the code PNBF19. Visit the Anthropics website for details.



It’s not just kit that’s available during Black Friday, it’s experiences, too.
