Whether you're a casual phone snapper or a budding amateur photographer, having the right equipment can be the difference between a good shot and a really great image. While having the best camera might not make you a better photographer, it will allow you to capture sharper images even in low light. 

There's a wide range of cameras to choose from these days, from professional DSLRs and mirrorless devices to super-zoom and compact cameras. Investing in a camera can be a big decision, so it's important to do some research but you don't want to pay more than you have to. This year's best Prime Day deals include some of the top brands with savings that you don't want to miss. 

Here's a round-up of some of the best savings available during the Prime Day sales. Don't forget though, these sales end at 11.59 pm (PT) on Tuesday, June 22 and can sell out before then – so be quick.
