Anyone who knows anything at all about action cameras knows that the GoPro HERO8 Black is as good as it gets right now. This hot new GoPro model features the latest and greatest camera sensor with 4K resolution, an all-new streamlined design, and new HyperSmooth 2.0 technology that provides three different types of image stabilization for the smoothest possible action camera footage. It’s fantastic, and if you hurry, the GoPro HERO8 Black is on sale on Amazon for just $349. That’s a $51 discount compared to this model’s regular price of $400, and it’s the best deal we’ve seen so far.

The HERO8 is a fantastic action camera indeed, but if we’re being completely honest, not everyone needs to spend that much on the latest and greatest features. If you’re a professional looking to capture commercial footage, yes, you should definitely get the HERO8. But if you’re an amateur or just someone looking to record high-quality action videos for yourself and for social media, you can save a ton of money with a different deal that’s available today on Amazon.

Instead of dropping $349 on that model, check out the GoPro HERO5 Black action camera on Amazon. It captures stunning 4K video footage just like the pricier model as well as 12-megapixel stills, and it’s also waterproof up to 33 feet. Time-lapse video is supported as well, and the HERO5 has GoPro’s famous stabilization for videos that are shockingly smooth. It’s not quite as advanced as HyperSmooth 2.0 on the more expensive model, but it’ll still blow you away for sure. And right now on Amazon, you can snag one for as little as $127.49 if you hurry!
