GoPro HERO 6 Black
The HERO 6 is the latest GoPro, released late in 2017. The main upgrade to the latest GoPro is internally – this camera now packs a whopping 4K 60fps video. This is a spec upgrade that hardcore GoPro fans and consumers have been waiting a long time for. With sixty frames per second video you can capture way more detail in your HD video content and it looks great when slowed down for those slow motion action shots too. The HERO 6 is the ultimate stocking filler this Christmas and we’ll be linking to the best live Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on the HERO 6 Black right here. Don’t go anywhere!
GoPro HERO 5 Black
Released in 2016, the HERO 5 brought about a revolutionary new waterproof design, enhanced camera specs and voice activated commands. At first I thought I wouldn’t really use the voice commands – I’ve tried using my voice with gadgets a few times before and have never been entirely convinced its the way forward. But the voice recognition on the HERO 5 is surprisingly easy to use and it understands both mine and my wife’s accents. You can tell it to take a photo or start recording, which is really handy when you’re on the side of a snowy mountain and don’t have a hand free to hit the record button.
GoPro HERO 4 Black & Silver
These might be a little older and not have the voice command features of newer GoPros, but let’s not forget about the Hero 4 series. This was undoubtedly the most popular GoPro camera ever, and the one that you’ll see most people have stuck to their helmets and on the end of poles as they bomb down mountains. Even in 2017, the Hero 4 still has impressive camera specs – you can shoot 4K and 1080P video on both the Black and Silver. Although the frame rate that you can capture 4K content at is higher on the newer models, which is worth baring in mind particularly if you plan on filming a lot in slow motion. On the hunt for a Black Friday or Cyber Monday discount on the HERO 4? We’ll be udpating this section with links to deals.
A brand new camera, the GoPro Fusion has a retro design and is built for taking 360 degree panorama shots. This is the first 360 camera that we’ve seen from GoPro and we’re thoroughly impressed by the design, ease of use and camera quality on the Fusion. Keep checking back here as we’ll be listing the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on the GoPro Fusion.
GoPro HERO Session
The Session is my favorite GoPro and the one that I use the most. Why? Because put simply, its the easiest to use and most convenient to carry with you. Without a screen for viewing your playback (I personally love the suspense of not knowing how your shots turned out until you hook your camera up to the computer), the battery lasts way longer than on a regular HERO camera. There’s a simple one button control system that lets you start, stop and power off the camera. It’s got everything you need without adding complexity. And the recording quality is sharp and clear, with the Hero 5 Session using the same powerful camera that’s packed into the Hero 5 Black.
In the market for a new GoPro helmet mount on Black Friday? Perhaps a Cyber Monday deal on a GoPro battery, case or SD card takes your fancy. Either way, this section is going to be updated with links to live Black Friday deals on the best accessories that GoPro has to offer. From GoPro gimbals and poles to lenses and tripods, there’s a wide range of accessories that will enhance your experience with GoPro action cameras.

They allow you to capture first person views of adrenaline seeking moments, and share them with your friends and family.

Action cameras have revolutionised the sports video industry in 2017.
In 2017 there’s been a whole host of new brands entering the market. Long time market leaders GoPro have come out with new offerings, such as the Go Pro Hero 5 and Hero 5 Session, and these will no doubt be the biggest sellers on Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017. Rival companies offer some really impressive cameras though – you can pick up a HD action camera that will stand the test of time for less than $100. We’re expecting massive reductions on action cameras for the Black Friday weekend this year – which is stretching out for five days as retailers prepare to offer bigger discounts than ever before.
Action Camera Buying Guide
Here at Deal Tomato we’ve judged action cameras based on their battery life, resistance and durability as well as their camera specs. Battery life is an important issue if you’re planning on spending the day out on the mountain/in the water and won’t be able to recharge your device for a period. Some action cameras ship with spare batteries, and if they don’t we recommend picking one up as they weigh next to nothing and can double your filming time. The worst scenario is to miss out on recording your most epic moment because your camera battery has given up on you.
Resistance and durability is important for those who participate in sports that verge on the extreme – surfing, skydiving and skiing included. If you’re going to be subjecting your action cam to the elements then it needs to have a waterproof, tight sealing case. Companies like GoPro provide this, whereas some cheaper models are less well-made and may leak after heavy use.
Camera quality is another important consideration. If you want to record in stunning 4K HD then your best bet is a GoPro Hero 5 or Hero 4 Silver. These top of the range cameras provide unparalleled video recording quality and really make you feel like you’re in the moment when watching footage back. Generally anything over 1080P will make for impressive footage. Check the quality of the lens before buying too.
