GoPro Releases Black Friday 2018 Deals
GoPro has released their Black Friday deals on Amazon. They have are discounting their full range of Hero7 cameras. We have searched through the flyers of major retailers to find the best deals.
There’s no saying when these deals will end but it is possible that they will go through Cyber Monday. It’s possible that GoPro will run out of inventory before then.
These three models are on sale:
- $179 for GoPro Hero7 White (was $199)
- $229 for GoPro Hero7 Silver (was $299)
- $589 for GoPro Fusion (was $699)
The GoPro Fusion is a 360 camera that allows you to capture 5K video and 18 MP photos. It produces very unique footage that will make your films stand out.
Best Buy also has a deal on the Hero7 Black. They have not discounted the price but they will give you a $30 gift card and a 128 GB Extreme microSD card. You can also get the Hero7 Black at Target for the full retail price of $399. They will give you a free $60 gift card with purchase, which brings the price down to $339. Best Buy’s offer is better for most people since microSD cards that can support 4K video are expensive.
Difference Between Hero7 Cameras
You might be wondering what the difference between the white, silver, and black versions. The answer mostly comes down to the camera sensors. The Hero7 White and Silver can take 10 MP photos, while the Hero7 Black can take 12 MP stills.
The Hero7 White can only take 1080p video at 60 frames per second (FPS). The Hero7 Silver can film in 4K at 30 FPS, while the Hero7 Black can do so at 60 FPS. More frames per second gives you additional options when you edit the footage. Not only is it crisper, but you can also slow it down for a slow-mo reel.
The Hero7 Black has Hypersmooth stabilization. This is a new technology that GoPro has been spending a lot of time perfecting. It results in dramatically less shaky footage. The other two have stabilization, but it’s less advanced. Finally, the battery on the White and Silver are built-in, which means that you can’t swap it out to continue filming.
Overall, we were surprised when GoPro chose to discount the Hero7 series for Black Friday. Last year, the only discounted the previous year’s generation. It’s good to see that you can GoPro’s latest action cameras for a discount this year.
