GoPro Black Friday 2019 Deals (Hero 8 and Hero 7 Black)
GoPro is pulling out the stops and it’s discounting their most popular action camera models for Black Friday. Let’s take a look at what the company has discounted below:
- $349 for the GoPro Hero 8 Black (was $399)
- $139 for the GoPro HERO7 White Action Camera (was $159)
- $349 for the GoPro Hero 8 Black Bundle (was $499)
- $143 for the GoPro Hero5 Black (was $169)
The Best Buy version of the Hero 8 Black comes with a bundle that includes a headstrap and a SD card. The GoPro Hero 8 Black was just released a few months ago by the company. It is a bit surprising to see it on sale for Black Friday because in previous years GoPro decided not to reduce their flagship model for Black Friday.
What’s New in the Hero 8 Black?
The Hero 8 Black is the first physical redesign that GoPro has done in a few generations. The body is not smaller and thinner and it now has a built-in mount. This allows you to change the battery and the SD card without unmounting the camera.
The Hero 8 Black can take video in 4K at 60 frames per second. The sensor is the same as the previous generation, but the Hero 8 Black can now livestream in 1080p. It also has better stabilization algorithms for smoother footage. The Hero 8 Black also has a new microphone on the front for better audio.
Another new feature of the Hero 8 Black is the addition of accessories that GoPro calls mods. These allow you to make your camera more powerful by attaching a front-facing screen or microphone.
The Hero 7 White is a budget action cam that can record in full HD. It has a rugged and waterproof body. It has a built-in battery which means that you can swap it once it’s empty. Finally, the camera has no livestreaming ability and the footage is not as stable as newer models.
Overall, GoPro has great discounts this year. In particular, there’s a lot of value in the action camera bundle that’s on sale at several stores. This is your chance to try the new Hero 8 Black without the premium price.
