While the post-Christmas sales aren’t as big a deal (pardon the pun) as Black Friday these days, you can still save money on some of the best mirrorless cameras and lenses
Park Cameras and Wex for example have some enticing savings on hybrid cameras from Panasonic in particular. These powerful cameras are just as adept at recording high-quality video as they are at stand-out stills, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.
The headline deal is the opportunity to get the with the Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX with the S 20-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens for £2,099, a saving of £300. Along with other EISA members, we named it the best camera for video in the recent EISA awards.
