Save $300 on the superb Canon EOS R6, a higher-end camera that's pitched at the top end of the enthusiast market. This deal is for the body only but it's great for capturing still images and video and low-light shooting. 

Unlike some cameras, where video is almost an afterthought, the Canon EOS R6 captures superb quality video. Couple that with still image capture of up to 20.1MP, and you've got a camera that, as far as this price bracket goes, is hard to beat.

It's vari-angle touchscreen is a fantastic feature, useful for recomposing scenes. Though, as we noted in our Canon EOS R6 review, that feature is slightly inconvenient when it comes to astrophotography. 

But that's something that, otherwise, the R6 is otherwise good at. Using it for astrophotography, we found that it delivered fantastic images of the cosmos, with only the slightest noise that could be easily be removed. 

Its low light performance makes it idea for other settings such as concerts and weddings, so if you're tiptoing your way into professional photography, this could let you get a feel for it. 

This deal is for the camera body only, but it gives you the freedom to pick and choose a lens and if you want to save a little more, here are the best used lenses

Key Specs: This is a powerful, full-frame mirrorless camera that delivers top-end enthusiast level performance. It can capture stills up to 20.1MP, supports 4K video up to 60fps, silent shooting at 20fps and, has a max ISO of 102,400, making it suitable for low light shooting. It also boasts an impressive Dual Pixel CMOS AF II autofocus. 

Consensus: The Canon EOS R6 gives you plenty of camera for your money, especially at this price. In our review we called it "a perfect catch-all mirrorless," even with its 20.1MP still limit. 

Buy if: You're a photography enthusiast looking for a high-end camera that delivers superb image and video quality

Don't buy if: You're a seasoned professional photographer and need 40+MP image capture, or if you're buying exclusively for astrophotography. 

Alternative models: The Canon EOS R5 is a ridiculous $900 off for Black Friday, so if you want a truly pro model, pick that up.
