While my other post lists all of the Black Friday photography deals for accessories such as camera bags and tripods, as well as photo editing software deals, this post purely concentrates on the best Black Friday camera deals.

The E-M1 Mark III is the baby brother to the E-M1X. It inherits almost all the functions of its larger sibling but packs it into a far more portable package.
