Best GoPro Deals: When it comes to action cameras, there really is only one name you need to worry about: GoPro. If you want to get the best deal possible on the GoPro range, read on.
Smartphone cameras have come an awful long way in the past decade, but there are certain occasions where a GoPro is a far better option. These ruggedised, waterproof cameras can take a heck of a beating where your iPhone would merely crack and fizzle.
They’re perfect for extreme sports, water-based activities, and generally any past time that’s likely to get a little rough. GoPros are also a great choice for more laid back beach holidays.
They’re also compact and dead easy to mount on helmets, handlebars, and a variety of other out-of-the-way locations. There are a bunch of helpful accessories for this very task, such as a chest strap, a floaty to prevent your camera from sinking, and of course the obligatory selfie stick. It’s also helpful to have a fast, decent-sized microSD Card to store all of your photos and footage on.
The current GoPro range consists of the GoPro Hero 6 Black, the Hero 5 Black, the new entry-level Hero, and the 360-degree VR-ready Fusion.
Many an action junkie will be on the look out for a good GoPro deal come Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday. But you can usually get yourself an action cam bargain all year round, if you keep your eyes peeled.
Fortunately for you, that’s precisely what we’re doing with this round-up.

Best Cheap GoPro Deals: Which GoPro should you get?
There are now four current GoPro models to choose from (though there are always older models on offer) and you’ll be making a good choice whichever model you choose.
The new flagship model is now the Hero 6 Black, which is easily GoPro’s best camera to date. While it looks physically the same as the Hero 5 Black from last year, it’s got some significant upgrades courtesy of a new custom-designed chip inside called the GP1.
This means it has double the performance of the Hero 5 Black, such as 4K at 60fps and 1080p at a slow-motion friendly 240fps. The dynamic range, low-light performance and image stabilisation are also much improved. The latter is so much better, you can make the argument that you no longer need a gimbal for smooth footage.
Next down is the Hero 5 Black, which we rated as GoPro’s best camera to date when we reviewed it last year. The waterproof action camera combines all the best features of its predecessors, including a 12-megapixel camera, touchscreen display, dual microphones, video stabilisation, and location capture.
The new entry-level GoPro is the GoPro Hero. This tops out at 1440p/60fps with 10-megapixel still images. Its design is very similar to that of the Hero5 and Hero6 Black models, so it now has a waterproof body without a case and a screen on the back. It does away with the built-in GPS of the more expensive models, however.
Fresh to the family is the GoPro Fusion, which can capture 18-megapixel 360-still images and 5.2K 360-video. It’s the first GoPro to be able to handle this VR-friendly format, and the image quality is truly impressive. Even if you don’t want to shoot spherical footage, however, the Fusion’s OverCapture mode lets you switch your footage to the 1080p flat variety – with the added bonus that you won’t miss anything.
Recently discontinued is the Hero 5 Session, which is a smaller and more compact cube-shaped model, ideal for those looking for the most lightweight and portable action camera.
