Update on November 10 at 2:40 p.m. EST: Two Canon 7D Mark II and Pixma PRO-100 deals have been added below. 

Welcome to the first edition of Imaging Resource’s Thrifty Thursday column, where we'll deliver the latest and greatest deals to you as they become available. Don’t worry though, particularly good or very time-sensitive deals will still be delivered to you as soon as we catch wind of them.

This week we are looking at deals from Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon and Olympus.

Canon's November instant rebates on cameras, mail-in rebates for lenses

Canon’s monthly rebates, which run from October 30 through until November 19 in the cases of the camera body rebates and from October 31 through December 31 for the Canon EF lens mail-in rebates. The following rebates are available through all authorized Canon dealers.

There are some good deals to be had on Canon EOS 5DS, 5DS R, 5D Mark III and 6D camera bodies and kits, with instant savings between $200 and $300 available to customers. See the flyer below.


Instant rebates are available for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, 80D and 70D cameras as well, valued between $100 and $500, although most of the deals are on the higher end of that range.

On the topic of the Canon 7D Mark II, B&H will have a very special deal on 7D Mark II camera and printer bundles starting tomorrow, November 11 at 3:00 p.m. EST. To be clear, the two links below will not show the sale price until it starts tomorrow afternoon and the sale will last until November 14 at 8:00 a.m. EST. 

There are a lot of kits for these cameras available, so see the image below.


Canon isn’t done yet, Rebel cameras also have up to $400 in instant rebates available. Rebel T6i, T5i, SL1 and T6 camera bodies and kits have instant rebates too.


Mirrorless fans, there are also savings for you. The Canon EOS M3, available in a large array of different kits, has instant rebates from $250 to $650. The Canon EOS M10, which we recently reviewed, can be purchased at $150 to $170 discounts.


Finally, a variety of PowerShot cameras have instant rebates. The savings are not quite as high as the previously discussed Canon cameras, but you can save up to $300 on the PowerShot G3X and electronic viewfinder (EVF-DC1) kit. Other deals range from $30 to $100 on PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, SX710 HS, SX530 HS, SX60 HS, G9X, G7X, G5X, G3X (without viewfinder) and G1X Mark II PowerShot cameras.


If you need new lenses to go with your new Canon DSLR camera or just want to add some Canon glass to your existing kit, there are mail-in rebates available to any lenses purchased from Canon authorized dealers from October 30 through December 31. To qualify, you must purchase at least two qualifying EF-S lenses. The full list of lenses can be seen here, but rest assured, if you’re buying a new EF lens, it’s probably on the extensive list. There are a few caveats to keep in mind. All eligible lenses must be purchased at the same time such that they are on the same sales receipt. Further, lenses that were purchased as part of a kit do not count towards this promotion. Be sure to read all of the conditions before participating in this promotion.

Fujifilm: Instant rebates up to $400 on cameras and lenses until Christmas Eve

Fujifilm is offering instant rebates on cameras, both body only and in kits, until December 24. The rebates on cameras range from $100 to $400. You can see the full range of deals at B&H and Adorama, but I will list the deals below as well. 

As you can see, there are some great deals on Fujifilm cameras and kits. If you already have a camera, you can get a wide variety of new glass with instant savings up to $300: 

Nikon: Instant rebates on Nikon cameras and kits are still active, up to $900 in savings

You may recall that we posted about Nikon deals at the end of October. Those are still active! You can save up to $900 on D500, D750 and D810 camera bodies and kits. 

Olympus: Show your Olympus fandom for less, 15% off gear and accessories to celebrate 80th anniversary
