With the big day in full swing here are some of the best camera deals we have found on Amazon – hurry though as many are time limited.
Olympus Tough TG-6 Action Camera, down to £299, a saving of £150.99
A great deal on a rugged and versatile compact, which our testing tsar Andy Westlake describes as the “best waterproof camera on the planet.” As well being waterproof up to 15 m, shatterproof up to 100 kg, frostproof up to -10°C, and shockproof up to 2.1 m, it features a 12Mp sensor, and 4K 30P video, as well as high-speed Full HD modes for an enhanced slow-motion playback and quality. Integrated WiFi too, and support for raw capture. What’s not to like?
Sony RX100 II, down to £349, a saving of £58
This is a decent premium compact, featuring a 1.0inch 20.1MP Exmor sensor, Bionz X image processor that’s claimed to operate three times faster than its predecessor, maximum ISO sensitivity of ISO 25,600 and the ability to shoot at up to 10fps in its Speed Priority Continuous Shooting mode. It’s also got a useful flipscreen for vlogging or getting shots from different angles.
Canon EOS M50 and EF-M 15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens – down to £479, a saving of £170.99
Entry-level mirrorless model is a steal with a lens at this price, featuring a 24.1Mp Dual Pixel CMOS sensor which is capable of phase-detection AF across a wider area of the frame. You also get 10fps continuous shooting, a 2.36-million-dot 120fps OLED viewfinder, a three-inch fully-articulated touchscreen and 4K video.
Sony RX100 VI – down to £739, a saving of £411
This pocket rocket is not going to suit everyone – particularly those with big hands – but it has a lot going for it. The impressive lens gives sharp images all through its really useful zoom range, the camera delivers very good image quality with reliable exposure and remarkably fast autofocus and continuous shooting means you should never miss a shot. There is also a pop-up viewfinder and a tilting screen. It also features a 20MP 1-inch sensor, 24 fps shooting and 4K video recording.
Sony Alpha 7 II with with 28-70 mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens is down to £839, a saving of £240
The first full-frame mirrorless camera to feature 5-axis in-camera image stabilisation, this is a solid performer – key features include a 24Mp CMOS sensor, 1200-zone metering system, ISO 50-25,600 sensitivity range, 0.5inch, 2.4-million-dot EVF and 117 AF points (phase-detection AF) 25 AF points (Contrast-Detect AF). Considering just the camera body cost £1500 when it came out in 2015, this is a sizeable discount.
