Based in Tokyo, Japan, Nikon is one of the largest providers of optical instrument in the world. Founded in 1917, the company was originally named “Japan Optical Industries Co., Ltd” prior to being rebranded as Nikon in 1988. Today, they manufacture a variety of products from DSLR cameras to binocular telescopes, which are available for purchase all around the world. A multi-billion company, they had over 25,000 employees worldwide as of 2015. Some of their main competitors in lens and camera manufacturing include Olympus, Canon, Sony, and Pentax.
For those who are familiar with the hobby, you’ll know that cameras and lens can be pricey. Fortunately, Nikon offers its customers a variety of sales for the Black Friday weekend. Coincidentally falling on the company’s 100th anniversary this year, they will be dropping the prices for dozens of items from DSLR kits, to lens for the serious hobbyist. In addition to being able to shop online, you can also take advantage of their Thanksgiving sales at Nikon Authorized Retailers (for a list, visit their website).
What’s on sale this Black Friday? From what we saw on their flyer, they will be offering instant savings on many of their lens- up to $200! Whether you’re a hobbyist or professional photographer, there are definitely deals to be had this upcoming weekend. For those who are looking to get into photography, Nikon will also be discounting a few entry level kits such as the D3400, which will come with the 18-55mm VR lens. Some other models that are available include the D810, D500, and D750. For more details, be sure to check out their Black Friday ad scans, which you can view at the bottom of this page.
