The clock may be ticking on the Cyber Monday camera deals, but there’s still time to find a photographic bargain – so to help you track one down, we’ve picked out our favorite 10 camera bargains that are still live.
It’s easy to get a bit deal blind during the Cyber Monday sales, with so many discounts and price cuts. But there is some truly staggering value to be found in the camera deals still running, as shown by the ten absolute steals below.
Naturally, you can always find an action camera or instant camera for under $500, but there are two particular deals that stand out for their value in those categories: the Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 for $59.95 from Amazon, and the GoPro Hero 7 White for $99 from Walmart. Both are our number one budget picks in their class, and have been given further reductions for Cyber Monday.
But what if you want to step up to a mirrorless camera? This is arguably where the best value is to be found. Impressively, three of our favorite entry-level mirrorless cameras of recent years – the Sony A6000, Fujifilm X-T200 and Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III – are all available under $500. And that’s with a kit lens included, too.
For DSLR fans, or those who are just starting out on their photographic journey, the best value is to be found in B&H Photo Video’s $399 deal on the Canon EOS Rebel T6, which again includes an 18-55mm kit lens.
And lastly, there’s the best Cyber Monday camera deal for those who want to get into aerial photography – Adorama’s DJI Mini 2 bundle. Yes, the DJI Mavic Mini is now cheaper, but we reckon DJI’s new mini drone is worth the extra and that bundle includes some free landing gear extensions.

Canon EOS M200 with 15-45mm lens:
$549 $499 at Adorama
Canon’s take on the compact, user-friendly mirrorless camera offers superb value at this sub-$500 Cyber Monday price tag.
