November 25 is “Black Friday.” Since the 1930’s, the Friday after Thanksgiving has been considered the start of the Christmas shopping season. However, in the 1960’s Black Friday got its name from news reports of heavy shopping and vehicle traffic. It is one of the largest retail shopping day of the year.
But that’s enough history. If you’re a photographer who is always looking for the best kit, what you care about are the deals.
Fortunately, there are several websites who scour all the newspaper shopping inserts to find the best Black Friday deals. Amazon is great, but they don’t have everything.
