If you’re one of those insane people who get into long lines for Black Friday…best of luck. I have no such determination. And it’s cold out. Maybe if they had Black Friday on a nice day in May I would reconsider…but back to the point. There are some photo deals online for you to look at too:
A lot of their lenses are $100 off right now. Sigma is one of my favorite lens companies–their quality seems as good if not better than a lot of Nikon and Canon lenses, and what’s better, they have mounts that work on both type of cameras, as well as Sony and a few others, I believe.
For those of you in the intermediate/advanced classes, you know how important having a calibrated monitor can be. Right now Xrite is having a sale, too. It’s not a huge amount, but $60 off isn’t anything to sneeze at.
For editing I like Nik’s software for a lot of editing, but Topaz has some really great features in it’s b/w plug in that I’ve used quite regularly. Right now the entire suite is almost $100 off the regular price.
OTHER ART SALES
I don’t have them all listed here, but for those of you buying portfolio supplies, most local art stores are having their black friday sales too. I know University Art (J Street) is, and Dick Blick has a TON of stuff online for sale–I know they would have the same items in their local store (Howe Ave) on sale too…
