The GoPro Hero5 Black 4K action cam is now on sale for its lowest price yet

Smaller, more advanced camera technology has opened up a world of new possibilities for portable, high-resolution video recording. This not only applies to mobile technology like smartphones, but also to wearable action cameras, an increasing number of which offer 4K capability for shooting crisp Ultra HD video.

There are a number of manufacturers entering the action cam market today, but ask any adventurer which model they recommend, and you are likely to hear “GoPro.” GoPro just released the new Hero6 Black, so now’s your chance to score a sweet deal on the GoPro Hero5 Black, which is now on sale for just $249 – its lowest price yet.

GoPro continues to set the standard for rugged, high-quality wearable video recorders, and the Hero5 Black is no exception. The device is consistently ranked among the best action cameras that money can buy and remains one of our own all-time favorites. The Hero5 Black camera is among the cream of the GoPro crop, representing one of the company’s most powerful and feature-laden designs yet (only edged out by the newer — and considerably more expensive — Hero6 Black).

GoPro Hero5 BlackThe GoPro Hero5 Black can record footage in stunning 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. Adjust the resolution to a crisp 1440p for 80fps footage or to 1080p resolution for 120fps for slow-motion video. The 12-megapixel camera can snap still photos, and the touchscreen interface lets you manage all of your data on the go. The device syncs with your computer or smartphone via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for uploading and editing, and voice commands allow convenient hands-free use. The durable housing is waterproof up to a depth of 33 feet.

The GoPro Hero5 Black originally went for $399 and came down to $299 for awhile following the Hero6 Black’s release. Now, you can enjoy a tidy $150 discount that brings the GoPro Hero5 Black down to just $249 from Amazon & B&H. B&H is also throwing in a free 16GB Samsung MicroSD card and $25 gift card. This is an excellent deal on this top-notch action cam and the lowest price we’ve seen yet.
