Capture life in 360 degrees for under $300 with this half-off GoPro Fusion deal

GoPro Fusion review
Daven Mathies/Digital Trends

GoPro’s Fusion 360 camera packs in the most potential for an immersive camera that we’ve seen yet — but the list price reflects that potential. But with a price cut at B&H Photo Video, the GoPro Fusion is both one of the best 360 cameras and one of the most affordable.

Originally $600, the 360 camera is currently listed for $299 — it’s not the first time we’ve seen the deal, but GoPro rarely offers price cuts that steep. With the discount, the Fusion is even cheaper than the GoPro Hero7 Black, a single lens action camera.

While the Fusion has a handful of the problems that every 360 suffers from, the Fusion delivers a blend of quality and usability that had Digital Trends toting the camera as the 360 with the most potential. The Fusion records 360 video in 5.2K resolution and 30 fps or 3K at 60 fps. The camera uses two SD cards and stitches the footage together later on the mobile or desktop app — with excellent stitch quality coming from the desktop. 

While the mobile app offers easy access to settings and is easy to use, stitching results are a bit better when using GoPro’s desktop software. OverCapture on the mobile app also allows the Fusion to function more like a traditional GoPro, editing down the footage and using that immersive view instead to follow the action. Gyroscopic image stabilization is also included.

Despite the dual lenses, the Fusion will feel familiar to previous GoPro users. The body is larger to accommodate two lenses and a bigger battery, but the interface is familiar and it uses the same mount system as single-lens GoPros. The Fusion is waterproof without housing — though only to 16 feet, not quite as deep as the Hero7 series.

The Fusion ranks as one of the top 360 cameras available. The Rylo camera has better editing tools and a smaller body — but while it’s typically cheaper, that’s not the case when the price of the Fusion is cut in half. B&H currently has the Fusion in stock for $299, with free shipping. The photo and video focused store doesn’t list an end date for the discount, so there is no saying how long the discount will last.

Bargain hunters can now start shopping for Black Friday deals, as the offers have arrived early this year.

If you're in the market for an action camera, you should take a look at the Amazon Black Friday deals, which include an offer for the GoPro Hero8 Black at $299 after a $50 discount from its original price of $349.

The GoPro Hero8 Black follows up on the introduction of the HyperSmooth electronic image stabilization technology in the GoPro Hero7, which eliminated the need for a gimbal, with a physical redesign that adds an integrated mount, so you no longer need a mounting frame for the action camera. The GoPro Hero8 rolled out HyperSmooth 2.0 for compatibility with all frame rates and resolutions, as well as new accessories named Mods that further expand the device's capabilities.

GoPro Hero7 Black – $250, was $330

GoPro's previous flagship, the Hero7 Black, is still a solid action camera that has the power to take the most stunning action shots for a fraction of the Hero8's cost. Design-wise, it looks identical to the GoPro Hero5 and Hero6, which means you'll need a mounting frame in order to attach it to its accessories. If you're upgrading from any of those cameras, you can just reuse the same frame. This is the very first GoPro to feature the HyperSmooth stabilization technology, which lets you say goodbye to excessive video shaking and wobbling regardless of the filming conditions. Its 12-megapixel sensor is capable of shooting glorious 4K at up to 60 frames per second, and with Live Stream built-in, you'll be able to share your adventures on social media as they're happening, although its maximum resolution is 720p while the Hero8 goes overboard at 1080p. Get the GoPro Hero7 Black today at Best Buy for $250 instead of $330 – a huge $80 off.
