Best Black Friday GoPro Deals 2020: Hero 8 and Hero 7

With Black Friday in the distance, you’d think that retailers would be sitting on their best sales, but that’s not the case.  This year, we’re seeing a flood of early Black Friday deals on everything from computers and soundbars to smart home tech and essential gear for your home theater. One area where we’re seeing such deals is on GoPros. Right now, you can get heavy discounts on some of the best GoPros, like the Hero7 Black, Hero8 Black, Hero9 Black, and GoPro MAX.

Alongside these GoPro deals are some amazing discounts on other gear, like Black Friday camera deals, and Black Friday laptop deals, as well as Black Friday TV deals. A solid GoPro can totally reinvent how you record video, and the lens which you see the world (or at least replay it). The GoPro’s wide-angle lens allows your to capture your footage in a gorgeous, fish-eye, mesmerizing style that is ideal for seeing a larger, faster, bigger world. It’s the perfect camera for capturing sporting events, exploring, views on hikes, travel experiences, and even more personal events, like parties, graduations, and weddings. If you’re looking for a GoPro, Black Friday is the time to get one. But you’ll want to shop early if you want your GoPro to arrive by Christmas and the holidays. Items ordered now are looking to be delivered by the end of the month, so it’s only a matter of time until those delivery dates stretch until late December and early 2021. To make sure you get the GoPro you want, when you want it, get shopping now!

How to Choose a GoPro on Black Friday

There’s not shortage of GoPro deals this Cyber Monday. You’d actually need a GoPro, or several of them, to capture them all. In fact, the problem today is just how to sort through all the options and choose the right one for you. But fear not, Digital Trends has your back. We’ve compiled our list of  the bes action cameras for 2020, which includes GoPros and you can use to help you select the right kind to buy. The best bang for your buck? In our distinguished reviewers’ shared opinion, it’s the GoPro Hero8 Black; this GoPro is for everyone, but especially athletes and vloggers who are looking for the smoothest possible video with its electronic stabilization feature. Also distinguishing the GoPro Hero8 Black is a built-in mount that rids you of the need to invest in a special case. GoPro has also invested in the user experience of their app; with your GoPro Hero 8 Black, you can use the QwikStories feature and combine your GoPro footage with photos and videos stored on your phone.

But the GoPro Hero 8 is far from your only option. For Black Friday, you’ll see deals on the GoPro Hero7 Black, which can rival the GoPro Hero 8 in many ways, without the same drain on your wallet. If you’re someone who is perhaps experimenting with GoPros, vlogging, or recording your athletic pursuits, the Hero7 Black could be a great place to start. There are fewer bells and whistles than later models, but you’re forgoing very little in terms of video quality; it shoots 4K at up to 60 frames per second, and there’s video stabilization, too. Today, you’ll find discounts on even older GoPros, and those should not be ignored either, especially if this is your first GoPro — they’ve added some great features over the years, but an older GoPro will still blow you away with the quality of the imagery, and its ease of use.
