Cheap Camera: Mirrorless, Waterproof, Bundles Galore! Keep Your Wallet Happy with Today’s Deals.

Camera deals are the name of the game on Tuesday’s edition of Cheap Photo, or as we affectionately refer to it as: Cheap Camera. Today we highlight a killer deal on Canon’s maligned but vastly improved EOS  M3, as well as some great savings on waterproof cameras and Canon/Olympus bundles.

Thanks to some great community feedback, we are mixing the old ways with the new, going back to displaying the full running list every day, while continuing to stick to our daily highlight theme (in today’s case, Cameras). We hope that this makes things more convenient on a daily basis.

Spotlight Camera Savings: Canon’s EOS M3


Canon’s mirrorless ‘M’ line has about as bad a reputation as a camera line can have. From the very beginning the Canon offering has lagged behind the capabilities of its competition and suffered from a severe lack of quality native lenses. The EOS M and EOS M2 were both big failures at launch, yet became sort of niche, underground favorites for budget videographers and those needing quality content on the cheap. The EOS M3 is an improvement in every way over the previous two models and Canon’s recently released 28mm macro lens (you know, that weird one with the built in ring light) shows that the company is starting to take its EF-M mount more seriously. If you are in the Canon ecosystem already, and are looking for a smaller, more compact camera that still offers a similar look & image quality and experience that you are used to, then the EOS M3 could be a great (and affordable) option for you.
