Photography can be a fulfilling profession or hobby, but it certainly doesn’t go easy on your wallet. With high-end cameras setting you back a couple thousands of dollars for just the body, being able to score a great deal is always welcome.
If you’re currently looking to upgrade your DSLR, or want a shiny new lens to add to your photographic arsenal, here are some of the best camera deals currently available.
Canon camera deals
If Canon is your camera brand of choice, we have some good news. If you purchase certain Canon DSLR and/or mirrorless cameras, you can receive up to $250 cash back.
This promotion only applies to items that are shipped and sold by Amazon AU, so you won’t be eligible for the cash back offer if you purchase any of these cameras through an internal Amazon shopfront or third-party seller.
On top of this cash back offer is a few decent discounts on various Canon DSLR and mirrorless cameras going right now.
You can check out a few highlight deals below:
