Smartphone shooters are continually hitting new heights, but sometimes you just can’t beat a proper camera.

So we’ve gone ahead and put together a list of some of the best cheap camera deals available right now.

As the post title suggests, you won’t find many high-end DSLRs that don’t run you thousands of dollars. This list is more for those of you looking for a first camera or an affordable upgrade. We’ve broken the deals down into each type of camera to make it easier for you to decide just what you need.
You’ll notice that a lot of the deals below are from B&H and Focus. That’s no coincidence since photography is their specialty. We’ve picked out a selection of their best deals, but there are dozens more to check out, with massive savings to be had. You can peruse both selections on the B&H or Focus websites.
Featured deal: Save $200 on the GoPro Hero 10 Black
When you want the best action camera on the market, there’s only one name that comes to mind. And while GoPros come with a premium price tag, this huge price drop offers you more than one-third off retail. The GoPro Hero 10 Black is currently just $349.98 ($200 off).
The GoPro Hero 10 Black is small and portable enough to be able to mount it anywhere, but still delivers 23MP images and 5.3K video at 60fps. It can also do 4K at 120fps, which is outstanding even in serious video cameras.

Compact camera deals
The best cheap camera deals are compact or point-and-shoot cameras, which are small and easy to operate. The lens is built into the camera, so you can essentially point and capture images with the push of a button. However, compact cameras are smaller than DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, and you might find that your image quality is limited depending on your setup.

Mirrorless camera deals
Mirrorless cameras are similar to DSLRs in that they rely on interchangeable lenses for image quality. However, as the name suggests, they lack a mirror, so images are captured directly on the sensor. Mirrorless cameras are often smaller and lighter as well, which makes them easier to carry and use.
