There are three GoPro action cameras in the current range. The GoPro HERO 7 Silver (good) and the GoPro HERO 7 Black (better) were released in September 2018. The GoPro HERO 8 Black (best) was announced 1 October 2019. 

Some older GoPro models, such as the 2018 GoPro HERO7 White, have been discontinued by GoPro are still on sale at some retailers.

The best GoPro HERO7 Black deals

cheap GoPro deals: HERO7 Black

The GoPro HERO7 Black is now the second-best GoPro camera, released in September 2018 and is sold on GoPro's site for $329.99/£319.99. This has dropped from the original price of $399/£349. As it's getting older, we're starting to see some tasty savings, which we've listed below.

The cheapest we've seen the HERO7 Black go for in the UK is £259.99 at Amazon in February 2020, and with £319.99 as the current RRP we'd jump on that deal – or any any UK deal that offers the HERO7 Black for less than £260.

GoPro has also expanded its Trade-Up Programme to 28 European countries, including the UK. The programme allows you to trade up from any previous-generation GoPro, or ANY other digital camera, to receive $100/£100 off a new HERO8 Black or $50/£50 off a HERO7 Black. Find out more here.

The best GoPro HERO 7 Silver deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO7 Silver

The GoPro HERO7 Silver replaced the HERO5 Black in September 2018. Like the HERO5 Black, it features a 10 megapixel camera which can capture 4K footage at up to 30fps. Full price for the HERO7 Silver is $199.99/£199.99, a big drop from the launch price of $299/£279.99, and from comparing recent prices we'd consider anything under $190/£180 a good deal for this action cam.

The GoPro Max is a versatile 360-degree action cam that replaces the GoPro Fusion. It was was released shortly after the HERO8 Black in October 2019, and boasts the same frameless mounting system. It has an RRP of £479.99/$499.99.

The Max is better than the Fusion in every respect, and offers with many of the most popular HERO features, including such as Hypersmooth stabilisation and TimeWarp time-lapse video cababilites. With this model, you're also able to flip between front and rear views using the Max’s touchscreen.

That's it for the GoPros currently still in production and being sold by GoPro. For easy comparison, these are the current cheapest prices for each model in your region right now.


Below, we've listed prices for older models of GoPro action cameras. We're not seeing the huge price cuts on these models that we'd expect, given that they've all been superseded, and given the lack of those big price drops, I'd personally go for one in the HERO8 or HERO7 range, especially now that the two remaining HERO7 action cams are being discounted from their launch prices.

But if you want an older GoPro despite that, you'll find them listed below, and because we update our prices every day, if one of them does suddenly get a big price cut, you'll see it in the tables below.

The best GoPro HERO7 White deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO7 WhiteT3 Awards 2020

The HERO7 White was GoPro's 2019 entry level camera, replacing the (unnumbered) GoPro HERO. In 2019 and 2020 it picked up the T3 Award in the Budget Action Camera category. It can shoot HD (1080p60 video), which is the resolution that the older HERO shoots at. The HERO7 White sold for $199/£179.99 on GoPro's site and you can see the best discounts right now. As the cheapest camera in the range it was also the one that tended to get the smaller, and less frequent, discounts although given its age it's now getting better discounts, with $175/£135 or under being a good discounted price.

The best GoPro HERO6 Black deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO6 Black

GoPro debuted the HERO6 Black in September 2017, with a launch price of $499/£399. It featured 60fps 4K video recording and beefed-up image stabilisation thanks to a new, custom-designed processor. Prices have dropped since then by a good hundred bucks or so, making this very appealing indeed.

In addition to the features above, the HERO6 brought improved dynamic range and low-light performance plus an added digital zoom (there are RAW and HDR photo modes). 

It's also ruggedised and waterproof to 10 meters without a dedicated waterproof. There are also faster offload speeds when compared with the Hero 5, thanks to 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi. This means you'll be able to download and share your captured footage quicker and more easily.

The best GoPro HERO5 Black deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO5 Black

The GoPro HERO5 Black was introduced in September 2016 with a launch price of $399/£349. Found at around the £240 mark in some places, this is a real deal to grab.

This once-popular action camera has a touchscreen for super-simple control and is water resistant without a housing case. Like the HERO5 Session, the HERO5 Black offers video recording up to 4K and the option for you to change the Field of View (FOV). Options include: SuperView, Wide, Medium, Narrow and Linear. With this camera, GoPro recognised that not everyone wanted the wide fish-eye look every time.

Unlike the HERO5 Session, the HERO5 Black offers the highest frame rates of the HERO5 range, in certain resolutions, and offers a higher resolution sensor. It also has professional grade low-light performance and ultra-sharp image quality with reduced distortion. However, the HERO5  Black is bigger than the HERO5 Session, so keep that in mind if size is a consideration for you.

The best GoPro HERO5 Session deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO5 Session

The GoPro HERO5 Session was introduced in September 2016 with a launch price of $299/£249.

The HERO5 Black and the HERO5 Session have a lot of crossovers in terms of offering similar features. Both are able to offer up to 4K video recording, both have voice control and both are water resistant (up to 10 meters) without a housing case. The HERO5 session is also smaller and discreet, with less wind drag, making it more attractive if you want to mount it on a helmet or elsewhere on yourself. 

Costing less than the HERO5 Black, the HERO5 Session is a strong option in the older GoPro action cam range. Some of the features you would be missing out on include, higher frame rates, touchscreen control, longer battery life, RAW images and GPS capture. If this is worth the extra money or not, is up to you.  

The best GoPro HERO Session deals

cheap GoPro deals: GoPro HERO Session

The GoPro HERO Session camera is the cheapest GoPro. It was released in July 2015 as part of the Hero4 range, priced at $399/£329. GoPro later dropped the price to $299/£249 and then $199/£159 in December 2015. The 2016 model was discontinued but there are still some 2017 models that can be bought used.

The HERO Session is water resistant up to 10m, and weighs exactly the same. That's about it for likeness. Many of the newer features available on the previous models don't exist on the HERO Session. 

It does not offer voice control, 4K video recording, video stabilisation or auto image upload. It has two different field of view settings and has a smaller sensor size, meaning image quality and low-light performance is weaker. But it's cheaper than the HERO5 Session and still does what it sets out to do and very well.

The best GoPro Fusion deals

5.2K spherical video and 18MP spherical photos! That's what you can capture using GoPro Fusion, with gimbal-like stabilisation makes footage smooth. The GoPro Fusion was released in November 2017 for $699/£699. It got a dramatic price drop to £379.99 on the official GoPro site, but there are deals out there that may get you it even cheaper.

The GoPro app’s OverCapture feature can recapture and share your spherical shot as a traditional fixed perspective video. It's waterproof to 5m.

GoPro Karma Drone

GoPro has even got its own drone in the range. This can be bought as a stand alone drone or as a bundle with whichever camera you want – although usually the latest. This isn't a cheap drone, nor is it rated as the best out there, with a lot more smarts in the likes of the DJI range. But if you're Team GoPro and want to take to the skies, this is the drone for you.

The GoPro Karma Drone was out there in the early days (along with a Hero5 Black) for around £900. Now you can find it a lot cheaper so it's worth grabbing a deal on this if you can.
