It’s that time of the year when we’re on the hunt for the best deals and savings on gear for the creatives on our holiday shopping lists. The team at SLR Lounge has had a look at, tested, played with, and researched a LOT of the best (and worst) photography products out there, and we’ve filtered them down to make your search for the best camera deals a little easier.

Be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back as we’ll be continually updating these lists as more and better products and deals surface for the season. If you’re looking for more insight on gear we’ve tested for the site, view all of our reviews here.

Tip: Before purchasing any of the items, check the 3 major retailers.  While most have the same (manufacturer determined) sale pricing, some sites may have slightly better pricing.  Consider the three below:
