New products available for 2018:
GoPro Hero – The new $199.99 model called the Hero is a budget friendly, entry-level camera with many of the same capabilities of the more expensive, advanced models. Highly affordable but you make some quality sacrifices (only 1080p video vs 4K on the Hero 6).
Hero 7 Black: It is regularly priced at $399, follows up on the traditional design of the Hero 5 and 6, and has the same custom GP1 processor as the Hero 6. There are a number of extra features including the ability to live stream, a time-lapse feature, smart HDR photo mode, and an in-camera stabilization algorithm. The new digital stabilization technology is called Hypersmooth – Verge says it sets the bar for digital video stabilization. It also has an optional SuperPhoto HDR mode that enhances photos by taking several shots in rapid succession before stitching them together to optimize colors, tone and reduce noise.
Hero 7 Silver: A less powerful processor than the Black. Shoots 4K footage but is missing super slow-motion capability. Built tough and waterproof to 33ft (10m). Includes vertical shooting. The Silver is the midrange option that is regularly priced at approximately $300.
Hero 7 White: Less powerful processor than the black, maximum video resolution of 1080p. REI says that the Silver and White both still outshine previous Hero models. Includes vertical shooting. This is the entry level, low price point of $200.
All three GoPro Hero 7 cameras also have built-in waterproof protection down to 10m, LCD touch screen, voice commands, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability, supercharge power adapter, and compatibility with GoPro mounts.
Given the announcement as well as the early GoPro Fusion 360 degree camera, retailers will probably be eager to discount the Hero 6 and any other inventory that they have in stock to move their inventory and consumers to the new GoPro Hero 7 models.Find Camera Deals at:

GoPro deals on these action cameras may be announced by either GoPro or retail stores, so we will be checking both locations to bring you the best price. As the latest model to be released on the shelves for Thanksgiving Weekend 2017, the GoPro Hero 6 will probably see retailers bundling gift cards to entice sales rather than offering huge discounts. If you are looking for the biggest deals, you are probably looking at buying either the Hero 5 Black or the Hero 5 Session.
Here are the other deals that we have found so far:
Hero 6 Deals (so far):

Best Deal on Hero Session Bundle
Target is offering the Hero Session bundle up for just $179.99 plus a $20 Target Gift Card. We don’t think this is the Hero 5 Session Bundle as that would be an incredible steal at that price. If you don’t need the latest and greatest from the GoPro line, you are essentially getting the bundle for the regular price of the Session.
Here are brief descriptions of the GoPro action cameras that we will be following prices on for Black Friday 2017:
GoPro Hero6 – The latest version of the GoPro released into stores in October 2017. This is the flagship model from the Hero series and sold well last year on Black Friday. It will be interesting to see how
GoPro Hero5 Black – A 2-inch touchscreen and 12 megapixel sensor are the highlights of the top of the line GoPro from 2016. It generally has more option and shoots higher maximum frame rates at the same resolution as the Hero5 Session. The Hero5 Session, for example, cannot shoot 4k in the widest SuperView mode. This GoPro also has a GPS system to geotag your photos. The Hero5 Black is also waterproof (to 33 feet) without a case, an improvement over the Hero 4.
Hero5 Session – The Hero 5 Session is a compact, waterproof (to 33 feet) action camera with a 10 MP sensor.
