Here's a roundup of the best deals on GoPro cameras that have caught my eye.
GoPro has unveiled the new HERO8 Black. Many of its specs are similar on paper to the HERO7 Black: max video rates of 4K60 and 1080p240, 12MP photos, and same waterproof rating down to 33 feet (10 meters).
They’re promising improvements to several features, including the next generation versions of HyperSmooth video stabilization, TimeWarp, and SuperPhoto+HDR. There’s a new LiveBurst feature that pre-rolls still burst mode photos. It also has Night Lapse Video, so you can use the extended shutter times with a time lapse compiled in-camera now. There’s a built-in mounting point that folds away into the base of the camera, so you won’t need to use the frame housing to mount the camera. It also has live streaming in 1080p, some usability improvements like custom presets, RAW images for all photo modes, and max bitrates bumped up to 100Mbps. And, as the pre-release leaks suggested, there’s a new suite of mod accessories for external mic, flip-up display, and lighting (preorders on the mods open in December).
It’s priced at $399.99.
You can preorder now from GoPro.com.
GoPro has dropped the HERO7 Black for $329.99 ($70 off) through September 2. It includes a 64GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card and 2-day shipping and returns. You can find the deal at GoPro.com.
GoPro is currently running a deal for the HERO7 Black and HERO7 Silver that gives you $100 off by trading in any old digital camera in any condition. It doesn’t matter what brand the old camera is or even if it still works. So it’s a great way to get some value out of those old digital cameras you have lying around and are never going to use again.
With this deal, the HERO7 Black comes down to $299.99 and the HERO7 Silver comes down to $199.99. GoPro covers the cost of shipping your old camera in as well as 2-day shipping of the new camera.
The deal is only available at GoPro.com.
And if you’re wondering what the differences are between the Black and Silver, I have a detailed comparison here.
GoPro also has the 360-degree Fusion camera at $300 off the regular $599.99, bringing it down to $299.99.
