Happy Friday! We've got a long weekend coming up (it's Labor Day on Monday for the U.S. and Canada), and hopefully everyone can take time to go out and take some photos. To help you get in the mood, we've found a great selection of camera and photo gear deals for you this morning, including savings on gear from Canon, Sony, Pentax and Tamron. We've also got a awesome deal on a Zacuto accessory at Adorama (videographers will like this one). Finally, we couldn't forget Amazon's Friday Lightning Deals! Be sure to check back on IR every weekday (except next Monday!) for more camera deals.
