Make every moment a happy snap with these Boxing Day camera deals.

Cameras might be commonplace in smartphones these days, but they still can't stack up against full-blown dedicated digital cameras and DSLRs. If you want the best picture quality and the greatest versatility, a standalone device is always the way to go. Of course, that typically comes at a steep expense, with top-of-the-line cameras fetching several thousands of dollars or more – and that's not counting for multiple lenses or accessories like tripods and gimbals.

That's why Boxing Day can be such a boon for aspiring photographers. Many camera retailers join in the discounting festivities by dropping the price of cameras and accessories, giving you a chance to pick up that cutting-edge Canon you've been eyeing off for the last six months.

To help you find a bargain, we've rounded up our top picks of camera deals from Boxing Day 2018 in the table below:

Which retailers are likely to have camera sales on Boxing Day?

The best way to make sure you get a good deal on Boxing Day is to shop around. Start with the larger retailers that you know will be offering the biggest savings.


Are Boxing Day sales worth it?

TedsCameras

That depends. The key to making the Boxing Day sales work for you is doing your research first to avoid common pitfalls.

Boxing Day sales are a good excuse for retailers to attract customers to their stores and get rid of excess stock. They will try every trick in the book to make the savings seem bigger than they are. It’s not uncommon, for example, for retailers to mark up prices during the middle of the year so they can advertise a bigger discount on Boxing Day.

The sales are worth it if you have been following the prices and you know you will be getting a good deal. There are some genuinely excellent savings to be had if you know where to look.

Tip: If you have an idea of the camera model you are looking for, compare the prices from multiple retailers and keep an eye on any mark-ups or mark-downs over the pre-Christmas period. That way you’ll know exactly how much you will be saving when Boxing Day arrives.


Which retailers have the best guarantees and returns policies?

Even if you found a great deal, knowing the warranties and store policies of each retailer is still an important consideration. You want to make sure you are protected if something goes wrong with your new camera.

  • All products from Mac Addict are guaranteed for 1 year and the store has a 30-day money-back guarantee on all purchases.
  • Ted's Camera has a 14-day exchange policy and free return shipping.
  • David Jones has a 30-day returns policy.
  • DWI products come with a 12-month warranty and 14-day money-back guarantee
  • Dick Smith and Camera House products are protected under normal consumer law and will be exchanged or refunded if faulty.
