It is that time of year! The craziest five days here at the Noisy Blogs with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This blog-post is a mini tutorial on how to make the best of what we will be posting.
Here at the Main Blog
At some point late tonight or tomorrow, we will launch our customary Black Friday and Cyber Monday Situation Room that will try to summarize some of the best active specials. This will be updated multiple times until Tuesday December 3 (the day after Cyber Monday).
If you want to research what was advertised in the leaked/official Black Friday Ads, you can use our long and winding Breakdown of the Black Friday 2013 Ads mega post.
At the Camera Deals Blog
If you want the latest specials as they happen, the easiest way to get to them is the Camera Deals blog. You can easily get to it from any browser with the easy to remember url noisydeals.com. It also has a Full Text RSS feed so you can add it to your Feedly, Firefox and Opera browsers, Bloglines, Newsblur, and many of the other classic and social RSS readers. You can also follow the updates on Twitter.
To help keep the situation under control at the Camera Deals blog and make it easier for you to skim and scan, for every calendar day, eg Wednesday November 27, we move the expired deals at the bottom of the day.
During the chaos, there are deals posted left and right. If you are looking for something specific, use the pull-down menus at the top of the Camera Deals blog to filter the posts by what you are interested in. We include three annotated screenshot crops right below to illustrate the three most important menus...
By Manufacturer (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, etc)
By Mount/System (Canon EOS, Nikon F, M43rds, etc)
By Product Type (DSLR, Mirrorless, etc)
