Love a good camera deal? So do we, and we're always on the lookout for them, posting those that particularly catch our eye on our news page. We don't just have one or two deals to report today, though -- there are literally dozens of them. Imaging Resource affiliate partner Adorama is currently offering so many instant rebates on photo gear from Canon, Nikon and Sony that we simply don't have time and space in this article to list them all! Instead, we suggest heading over to their site and checking whether your favorite cameras or lenses are included: chances are good that they will be on the list.

Canon fans can save up to US$350 on their next digital SLR purchase, with EOS 60D and 7D kits singled out for the highest instant rebate value. Couple this with a rebate of up to US$300 on lenses, and your savings could easily be in the high hundreds. You can also save $100 on Canon EOS M mirrorless camera kits, or up to US$80 on a new PowerShot compact.

Want to save as much as possible? Consider the Nikon D600, with a US$550 instant rebate.

If you prefer to shoot with a Nikon, the potential savings are even greater. You'll get up to US$550 off a digital SLR purchase (a D600 kit scores the maximum rebate), while lenses net up to US$350. If you're purchasing a 1-series mirrorless camera, you could get anywhere up to US$250 off, while Coolpix compact camera rebates top out at US$150.

And finally, if you're a Sony shooter, you can receive an instant rebate of up to US$500 on your next digital SLR (the Sony A99 kits net the largest rebate), while flash strobes receive a $20-30 rebate. And if you've got another model you'd like to replace with one of Sony's large-sensor cameras -- including our camera of the year, the Sony RX1 -- you can trade-in your existing camera through March 22nd, as well. Just place your order online first, and then phone or email as instructed on the product page to have your trade-in processed.
