With fall foliage fading and temperatures dropping in most areas of the continental United States, budding photographers may be less inclined to go outdoors to shoot. But that hesitance doesn’t extend to retailers, who have given nice discounts to several popular DSLR cameras for the Black Friday sales period.

Perhaps the most standout offering in terms of sheer discount is given by Abe’s of Maine on the diminutive Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR. Well-reviewed, this body was touted on its release as the lightest, smallest DSLR available. Today Abe’s is offering the camera complete with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens for only $498. As it happens, all other reputable online retailers are still charging $649 for the body plus lens. The camera features an 18MP CMOS-size sensor, 4 shot per second burst shooting, a touchscreen display, and more.

If you’re looking to start out with a more traditional body size, the rest of the Rebel line is a popular entry point to the world of DSLR photography. Today we found solid deals via eBay on two of the most popular Rebels sold today.

And finally, for those already deeply immersed and ready to make a (very large) commitment to the craft, the venerable Canon EOS 5D Mark III is being sold with a slew of lenses (five!) and accessories for $3,680. While that’s certainly not a drop in the bucket, it’s a far cry from the usual $5,000 you’d pay for the camera.
