Big Online Stores

B&H Photo

I cannot possibly list all the good deals on B&H as there are, quite literally, thousands of them. I’ve pulled out a few that jumped up at me from the page, but I highly suggest you dig into the Holiday Deal page, or simply search for the products you want. There is a good chance they will have some sort of discount on them during this period.

Main B&H Links to Explore

B&H Nikon Deals

B&H Canon Deals

B&H Sony Deals

B&H Fuji Deals

Fuji deals are very limited this year due to the international supply chain shortages. No point in discounting gear that people cannot actually purchase. Fuji seems to have been hit harder than most.

Panasonic Deals

Tamron Deals

Sigma Deals

Godox Deals

SLR Magic Deals

There are major savings on most SLR Magic lenses. Some samples are linked below but I’d recommend hitting the top link to see them all.

Deal Highlight – The BEST Sling

The Moment Rugged Sling is the best camera sling bag on the market. I compared it to the Peak Design and Wandrd slings and it came out on top. For Black Friday this year, Moment is discounting the Rugged Sling 6L by a massive 40%, and the Rugged Sling 10L by 33%. The deal runs from November 23rd to December 2nd. Don’t miss this one!

WPRocket speeds up your WordPress photography portfolio or blog. From 2021 onwards, Google puts enormous importance on website speed as a ranking factor in Google Search results. You need a fast website if you want your website to show up in Google searches ahead of your competitors. WPRocket will help you get there.


WordPress Website Hosting

Kinsta

Kinsta doesn’t actually offer Black Friday deals. Their hosting prices are the same every day of the year. I respect that. They know they have a great product. In fact, Shutter Muse is hosted with Kinsta. That’s how much I trust them.

Kinsta is a WordPress specialist and has the best technical support out there. They are not the cheapest WordPress hosts, but if you need reliable service with incredible support, there’s nobody better. And, if you pay yearly, you can get two months for free.

The speed of a Kinsta hosted website is particularly noteworthy. That’s really what you’re paying for. Website speed is being taken into account when Google chooses search ranking positions, so it’s important to have a website that is faster than your competitor’s. If your photo business is in the competitive market, Kinsta’s speed will give you an almost unfair advantage!

  1. Dan the MIOPS deal on Smart+ looks good, but they just launched FLEX on Kickstarter. If you want a smart trigger now, then Smart+ plus might be the trick, but if you are looking for a more powerful tool and prepared to wait then this might be of interest: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nerotrigger/flex/description

    Of course their last project had some long delays, and relatively poor communication (pre-COVID) – so hopefully they’ll execute better this time. I decided I’d risk it again, given C360 was a pretty sweet setup.

  2. Hey Dan, you mention the Rawsie BF deal, but a quick search did not find a review anywhere on your site.
    Are you using it? Is it simply a fast DNG conversion? Why not just use the Adobe tools for this? Interested in yours and anyone here’s experience.

    • Hi Nigel,

      This is a tool that produced compressed DNGs. So their file size would be considerably smaller than the DNG produced by Adobe. I haven’t reviewed the software yet, but I’ll put it on my to-do list.
