Score this GoPro Hero7 Black action camera bundle on sale for just $299

Action cameras used to be all the rage, but it's a market that has been pretty quiet this year. If you've been waiting for a really good deal on one, now's your chance to get one of the best. Amazon has a Black Friday bundle featuring the GoPro Hero7 Black action camera (opens in new tab) packaged with a dual-battery charger, an extra battery, and a 64GB microSD card all for $299 total. The camera itself (opens in new tab) is usually $330 and currently discounted to $299, so you're getting all the other stuff added on for free basically.

The bundle comes with a battery charger, an extra battery, and a 64GB microSD card. Basically everything you need to film all day. The Hero7 has HyperSmooth video stabilization, Time Warps, 4K recording at 60 fps, and an easy-to-use touchscreen.

GoPro recently announced a new generation of action camera, the Hero8 (opens in new tab), so it makes sense that we'd see a few Hero7 discounts this holiday shopping season. The Hero7 is still a great action camera, though, and it has the benefit of being much less expensive right now.

The Hero7 Black is the flagship of the 7th-generation GoPro lineup, which also includes the Silver (opens in new tab) and White (opens in new tab). It can record up to 60 fps in 4K with plenty of lower resolutions available. In fact, being able to record in 1080p at 240 fps gives you the ability to slow down your video up to 8x for some really interesting shots. For still images, you'll have 12MP photos and a burst mode up to 30 fps. Beyond the advanced 4K video, the Black also has GoPro's HyperSmooth video stabilization. The new technology is vital for removing the shakes that often accompany action camera footage.

The Hero7 Black is water resistant up to 33 feet and come with a two-inch touch intuitive LCD screen. Expect to find plenty of other features like face and scene detection, SuperPhoto Auto HDR photo enhancement, and more. A few of the features unique to the Black versus the other models include Raw photos, live streaming, and TimeWarp video. You'll even have voice control, which is a great feature for operating the camera from a distance without a remote.

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
