No one expected GoPro to be so successful when it invented the action camera back in 2004. But here we are, and here you are thinking of buying one.
These things are the best of the best, but they don't come cheap – well most of the time at least. We've rounded up all of the best GoPro deals, so that if you do want to buy one, you can make sure you get the best possible price. Our deals are checked every day to make sure all GoPro prices are up to date!
What’s a good deal?
Well, that’s up to you. We’ve ordered the GoPros on this page in order of prestige. You can get some seriously discounted GoPro deals if you opt for some of the older models like the 2015 GoPro Hero4 Session, which offers all the best GoPro features but in an easy to use and very affordable model. Naturally, we’ve updated our cheap GoPro deals page with the brand new Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session deals for those of you looking the best GoPro action camera yet.
The Hero5 Black is the GoPro we always wanted. The new waterproof design out-of-the-box makes it more resilient and the new camera has enough to make it a convincing update. The picture quality is better, it finally has video stabilization and the touchscreen makes it easier to use than any other GoPro. Sale items aside, it's cheaper than most prices for the older GoPro Hero 4 Black now too.
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.
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, 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.
If you've always wanted to buy a GoPro camera but were put off by the pro-level functionality found in GoPro's Hero4 Black, you're in luck. GoPro launched its most user-friendly camera ever: the Hero4 Session.
Operating the Hero4 Session is easier than it is on any of GoPro's other cameras, with a single button used to perform the majority of its functions. Just like with previous models, you can further refine your controls and settings by using the GoPro App or Smart Remote.
UPDATE: This model has now been discontinued, but retailers still could have some stock available. We've replaced it with the GoPro Hero Session mentioned below.
Number 2 in terms of outright awesomeness, the GoPro Hero4 Silver is 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 quite the best, but it is cheaper than the GoPro Hero4 Black above.
The model, simply called the GoPro Hero Session, is set to replace the very similar GoPro Hero 4 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.
7: GoPro Karma Drone deals
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. We've 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 GoPro Hero5 Black deals near the top of this page). You'll find the best GoPro Karma prices below though.
