Best Cheap GoPro Prices, Sales and Deals in November 2018
Cheap GoPro prices and deals are our speciality here at TechRadar throughout the year. These tiny cameras have really made a name for themselves. In fact, these little action cameras are so good that the name GoPro is more popular than the entire action camera category in general nowadays.
The best of the best action cameras don’t come cheap though – well most of the time at least. That’s why we’ve rounded up all of the best GoPro sales, so that if you do want to buy one, you can get the best deal. Our GoPro prices are checked every day to make they’re all up to date. Now’s a great time to be on the lookout too with the Black Friday deals edging ever closer.
If you’re just after a regular camera deal, be sure to check out our guide to the best cheap cameras.
A model by model rundown of the best GoPro prices
Towards the top of our list we’ve started with a selection of the most recent releases, namely the latest GoPro Hero 7 prices. You can get some seriously discounted GoPro sales on older models as you get further down the page. Towards the end you’ll find the GoPro drone prices too. GoPro themselves reduced the RRP on a number of cameras recently to head off some pretty aggressive competition from rivals.
Top of the our best GoPro prices list is the GoPro Hero 7 Black, but for those who don’t need all those high-end features, there are plenty of other options to choose from. We’ll run through the spec of each model making it easy for you to compare them all. So whether you’re after the smoothest 4K scene shooting, or after a reliable budget price 1080p option, we’ve got you covered.
The resolution and frame-rates may be similar to the older 6 series (we were bound to hit a wall sooner or later), but GoPro has endeavoured to improve their flagship camera elsewhere. GoPro HyperSmooth is the camera’s enhanced form of image stabilization can be used in numerous shooting modes to provide the smoothest possible picture running at 60fps. The audio commands are more responsive than older models too. SuperPhoto tech performs automatic improvements on lighting colour and noise-reduction across multiple frames. ProTune options allow you to take the safety wheels off and tweak setting to your own particular style too.
If you just can’t wait to show off your days fun until you get home, you’ll be delighted to hear you can now live stream with the GoPro Hero7 Black via the app on your phone, which has also been simplified to get you filming quicker than ever before. Finally, unlike previous models in the GoPro Hero Black range, the camera is actually black this time, making mistitled deals much easier to spot.
So you’ve seen that the GoPro Hero7 Silver prices are a decent whack cheaper than the Black edition. But what’s the difference between the Hero7 Black and the Hero 7 Silver? The Silver still shoots in 4K but at 30fps instead of 60fps so the picture isn’t as smooth, but still impressive. The 1080p fps capabilities are lower too. You don’t get the new HyperSmooth, SuperSmooth or Live Streaming features either. For the price though, this is still an extremely capable, durable and waterproof action camera. There are cheaper models available on this page though if some of the features seem like overkill or it’s still a bit pricey.
That’s seriously cheap for a new GoPro camera. The GoPro Hero7 White prices indicate this is this year’s budget entry in the GoPro range, priced close to the original prices of the unnumbered Hero model released earlier in 2018 or the Hero Session line. As you can tell by the specs mentioned above compared to the other Hero7 cameras, this has a more entry-level feel with the main omission to note being the lack of 4K shooting. You do get a touchscreen though. If you’d be happier with 4K shooting instead of a touchscreen though you might be able to get a similar price via one of our highlighted GoPro Hero5 Session deals further down this page.
This is still an excellent GoPro camera with 4K recording at a super smooth 60 fps (frame per second). Image stabilization is super important given the active lifestyles most GoPros record, so it’s great to see this model improve even further on older ones. Even the 1080p recording has been improved with a boost to 240fps – excellent for maximizing those slow-motion shots! We expect the price to drop on this one over time with the new Hero& Black now on the scene. If the prices are still close though, you may as well opt for the new one.
The Hero5 Black is the GoPro we wanted for years. It was the first GoPro to have a waterproof design out-of-the-box, making it more resilient and the camera has enough to make it a convincing update on the older models. The picture quality is better, it has video stabilization and the touchscreen makes it easier to use than any other GoPro before it. Sale items aside, it’s often cheaper than the older GoPro Hero 4 Black now too.
Update: We’d imagine this model is going to be phased out soon despite still being quite new. This is because it’s pretty much identical to the ever newer GoPro Hero7 White in terms of capabilities. Actually, it’s looking like the Hero7 White is currently cheaper! Always worth keeping an eye on this one though as clearance sales should mean potential discounts.
The simply-named GoPro Hero is cheaper than most other Hero models. You’re not getting 4K capture options, but you are getting a display and a touchscreen, features many of you might miss from the other budget GoPro option, the GoPro Hero Session. There was an older GoPro Hero released years ago and if you want to avoid getting that one by mistake, avoid models with a big, round, red light on the front as they can pop up in search results. They’re not much cheaper, sometimes even more expensive and aren’t as good as this 2018 version.
The GoPro Hero5 Session is a capable 4K action camera with a minimalist design that pushes the specs to the max within its cube-shaped confines. The Hero5 Session is also a major specs boost for GoPro’s tiniest action camera. It now shoots stabilized 4K video and has a variety of new field of view modes. It’s more expensive than its predecessor, but worth the upgrade.
The model, simply called the GoPro Hero Session, has replaced the very similar GoPro Hero4 Session. They’re the same price and considerably cheaper than the most recent GoPro Hero5 Session. Actually, looking around at the various GoPro models, this looks like the cheapest of the lot seeing as the older GoPro Hero is proving hard to get a hold of nowadays. So if you want an entry level GoPro, this could be the one to go for.
Compared to the models before it, the GoPro Hero4 Black offers the best image quality, plus a 2x more powerful processor that delivers super slow motion at 240 frames per second. High-resolution 4K30 and 2.7K601 video combines with 1080p120 and 720p240 slow motion to enable immersive footage of you and your world.
With the arrival of the newer Hero5 and Hero6, expect to see prices drop soon. As things stand many retailers are selling it for more than the Hero5! So it may be worth checking out the deals on the newer model (see above) before opting for this one.
UPDATE: This model has now been widely discontinued in the UK and Australia, but retailers could still have some stock available.
The GoPro Hero4 Silver was the first-ever GoPro to feature a built-in touch display. Controlling the camera, framing shots and playing back content is very convenient with this model – just view, tap and swipe the screen.
This GoPro captures 1080p60 and 720p120 video, plus 12MP photos at 30 frames per second. It’s not the best anymore, but it often cheaper than the GoPro Hero4 Black model above.
11: GoPro Karma Drone prices
Looking to take to the skies with your GoPro camera? There are certainly cheaper camera drones available, but this is one of the best premium setups out there. You can buy the drone on its own (often listed as ‘GoPro Karma Light’ or ‘GoPro Karma with harness’), or get it bundled with the excellent GoPro Hero5 Black camera (some retailers may start to replace these bundles with the more modern Hero6 or Hero7 models instead).
We’ve also included price comparison charts for both below, but you may be able to save a bit of cash by buying the drone and camera separately (check out the various GoPro Hero Black deals near the top of this page). You’ll find the best GoPro Karma prices below though.
