We've tested four of GoPro's flagship action cameras, and below you'll find our picks for the best GoPros at different price points. While GoPros aren't the cheapest action cameras you can get, older models stay available long after their initial releases, giving users with different budgets and needs more options to choose from without necessarily buying a camera secondhand.
Although it's now been replaced by the superior GoPro HERO11 Black, the GoPro HERO10 Black is still the best GoPro we've tested, and it's one of the best action cams around. This iteration improves upon the GoPro HERO9 Black with a new and improved processor that gives it smoother overall performance and better low-light capability. It also offers a big improvement in frame rates, with 5.3k video up to 60 fps and 4k up to 120 fps for the first time, making it extremely versatile for capturing everything from smooth, fast action to slow-motion in a variety of resolutions.
The biggest difference between the HERO9 and the HERO10 is that the HERO9 uses an older processor, which doesn't perform quite as well in low light. It also has fewer frame rate options, though 5k up to 30 fps and 4k up to 60 fps is nothing to sneeze at, and you still get 240 fps when shooting in 1080p, giving you a lot of flexibility for high-speed recording. All in all, if you can live without the additional frame rate options and better low-light performance of the HERO10, this camera offers most of the same features at a lower price point, making it one of the best GoPro cameras you can get for the price.
There are several memory cards on the market that will work well in GoPro cameras. Having used many SD cards in GoPros and also run my own independent microSD card speed tests for several years now, here are my top picks for the best SD cards for GoPro cameras.
Since 2013, after running into trouble with an SD card that was too slow for the HERO3 Black, I've been putting together my recommendations on the best SD cards for GoPro cameras. Because some GoPro models have specific requirements, I've also put together detailed model-specific pages.
There are quite a few 360 cameras that can create this type of video, but the Fusion does it best. Why? Because the video quality is so high and the stabilization is so good. Over-capture requires smooth video for maximum control and high quality because it zooms in on your 360 video.
The GoPro Fusion has so much potential; it can create stunning 360 video, the overcapture feature is awesome and its water resistance and stabilization seal the deal. While the Fusion can definitely shoot the best 360 video of any sub $1000 camera, it can be a painful journey. There are so many small issues that make using the Fusion frustrating at best and impossible at worst. Thankfully many of these issues are being dealt with and in 2019 the camera is much more stable. Even better is the heavy discount which makes the Fusion under $600.
I have been considering getting rid of my six gopro hero 4 / Freedom 360 rig and buying a virb or fusion mainly due to the extra work involved in the stitching process however after watching multiple videos and reading this article the multi cam rigs still offer the best video quality and resolution (8k +) for the money.
The best part of the Fusion is that you can pair it to a GoPro smartremote for external shutter. It is much easier to connect to that than the phone. Also the extendable tripod that comes with it is top notch.
We then calculate the best discount available for each GoPro Fusion model compared to its average lowest price over the past 30 days. Only when a particular GoPro Fusion model hits a new 30-day low price do we show this as a "price drop." In this way, this page provides a complete picture of today's best GoPro Fusion deals, across all 4 models (UPCs).
We then test and apply today's best discount codes made available by each retailer. For example, if today's best GoPro Fusion price is $299.00 at Best Buy, but Best Buy is also offering the promo code SAVE20 for 20% off on their site today, we'll test to verify that this code can be used to get a discount on GoPro Fusion at bestbuy.com and show the final lowest price (including the 20% off) here. You just need to click the "Apply Code" button and the code will be automatically copied to your clipboard and you'll be sent to the product page on bestbuy.com where you can complete your purchase.
By default, we sort all GoPro Fusion models by the "Best Discount Today" which means the best discount compared to each model's 30-day lowest price average. You can also sort by "Best Retail Discount" which will sort all GoPro Fusion models by the biggest discount as compared to its list price or retail price. Sorting today's GoPro Fusion deals by "Newest Price Drops" will sort the models to show the most recent price drops (vs 30-day average best price) up top. You can also sort GoPro Fusion prices by the "Lowest Price" on top, as well as by "1d Price Change" which will show the biggest decrease in GoPro Fusion price in the past day.
