2021 GoPro Hero10 deals for Black Friday
2021 saw the GoPro Hero10 Black come to market as the top-of-the-line option from GoPro. On the outside it wasn’t a big change at all. Some small changes to the colours and a slightly more durable lens cover. It’s on the inside that major revisions come to market with the Hero10 black.
If you look at the spec sheets comparing last year’s model, you’ll see some decent upgrades to the GoPro Hero10 black. Available frames-per-second is double what it was previously in every resolution. That means at 5.3K it’s up to 60fps from 30, at 4K there’s now 120fps available up from 60, and 2.7K lets you go as fast as 240fps when the previous max was 120fps.
What might not be as obvious is an upgraded processor. Every GoPro since version 6 has used the GP1 and one of the few complaints about last year’s model had to do with a sluggish UI owing to the old chip. The GoPro Hero10 Black brings a brand new GP2 chip and that alone makes it worth taking a look at.
Smaller upgrades are on board as well. There’s a new version of Hypersmooth to make your bumpy cycling video look glass smooth. If you don’t manage to mount the camera straight don’t worry about that either, as long as it’s less than a 45 degree tilt the Hero10 Black will straighten it out and you’ll never know.
The hardware is good but the deals to be had are all about the subscription service. Don’t worry though, it’s well worth having. For a price of £49.99/yr or $49.99/yr GoPro offers a slew of handy services.
Unlimited cloud backup with auto-upload is the biggest headline feature. You won’t have to worry about losing your footage once it’s in the cloud and you also don’t have to worry about dealing with storage limits. It’s all there and you don’t have to think about it. The subscription also unlocks a few tools in the Quick app, and saves you some money on a new camera.
However, it’s in the details of the subscription and the effect on camera pricing that things get a little fuzzy for the GoPro Hero10 deal this Black Friday. The rest of the year, the price for the camera is £479.99/$499.99 without the subscription or $399/£379.99 with the subscription. For Black Friday 2021 GoPro has dropped that price to £329.98/$349.98. There’s also the option of paying the same price as normal with the inclusion of accessories.
Those are both solid deals and the best available across the UK or US markets. You can find that same £50/$50 savings on the camera from other retailers but it lacks the added discount for the GoPro subscription. If you are looking for a GoPro Hero10 black deal this year than buying direct from GoPro at a discount is the best deal around. It’s less of a good deal than GoPro makes it seem but it’s still worth a purchase.
