But don't worry about digging and calculating all by yourself — we have done that for you already. Keep reading and find out what we can expect next year.


Best Prime Day deals on compact and mirrorless cameras to expect


We saw some serious discounts on mirrorless cameras during Amazon Prime Day 2022! The most prominent and big ones were on Sony cameras, some of which went down by $200-$1000! Canon and Nikon options also saw great discounts, but not with same amount of variety as what we saw with Sony.

Compact, point-and-shoot style cameras, one the other hand, did not see any crazy discounts. Nevertheless, there were some deals with $100-$200 price cuts, which is actually quite a lot as most of the cameras were already affordable to begin with.

It was interesting to see that most of the offers, however, were mainly on BestBuy.

Best Prime Day deals on DSLR cameras to expect


Unlike their mirrorless and compact counterparts, DSLR cameras did not receive a lot of attention during Prime Day 2022. We only saw three offers that were worthwhile throughout the whole shopping event on Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

It is true that many are slowly but surely transitioning to mirrorless, including manufacturers themselves, but DSLR cameras still have advantages and are a viable option for photographers out there. Let's hope Prime Day 2023 gives us more great deals on these beastly cameras.
