It’s that time of year again, ‘Prime Day’ is back! Today is the 4th annual “Amazon Prime Day” (July 16-17, 2018) and for 36 hours Amazon is having its biggest set of sales and only for Prime members.

The deals have already begun lining up and rolling in, and we’ll be continuously updating this post throughout the day with the best, and most relevant photography-related deals as we sift through the rough to find the diamonds.

If you’re not familiar with Prime Day, it’s essentially a 36-hour flash sale on thousands of items from Amazon, with the caveat being that to take advantage of them you must be an Amazon Prime member. Should you get Prime to take advantage of this? That depends, but Prime usually runs about $100 a year and depending on what you’re buying you could offset the price easily. Even if you’re not sure, there’s a 30-day free trial you can sign up for. In addition, if you’re a student with a ‘.edu’ email address you can get a whopping 6 month free trial and 50% off Prime right now! Check that out here.

What To Expect

Amazon will be adding new deals for Prime Day almost by the minute throughout the period, and many of those will be ‘Lightning Deals’. These deals are highly-discounted deals that last only for a few hours. They happen every day on Amazon anyway, but on Prime Day they are rampant and are the ones to really look out for. Basically, if you see something you want, act fast.

Of course as with any big sale, there are a few great deals hidden in a sea of average ones, so we’re here to help you navigate through them so that you can save on things you need (or just want) for your photography hobby or business.
