Imaging Resource Black Friday (and beyond!) Deal-Checker, 2008

"Black Friday" (the day after Thanksgiving holiday in the US) brings great retail bargains, but they actually aren't so great when compared to online prices. What's more, Black Friday has passed now, but the online deals are still as good as ever!

The listings below show what the Black Friday sale prices were on popular cameras at offline retail outlets, along with recent prices found on our Pricegrabber pages. NOTE that prices can change hourly, so the prices we've listed as lowest may change between when we found them and when you're shopping: Check the shopping links (the big, underlined prices in the right-hand column) for the very latest.

Note: An asterisk (*) denotes a "door-buster special" on Black Friday These prices are usually only available early in the morning, and each store may have only a few units at this price; check with the retailers in question for info on availability.

Shop smart and safe on the Internet: Read Shawn's shopping tips!
