The GoPro goes where no action camera has gone before — on ski helmets, on handlebars of bikes and even on drones in the air. Wi-Fi-connected for remote controllability and waterproof to 131 feet, you’ll want to be the first person in line on Black Friday to get this first-person-perspective camera. The GoPros have different names and specs, and stores are offering various Black Friday GoPro deals. Some GoPro models are designed for expert filmmakers and photographers, others are simpler, more intuitive and designed to let the average Joe GoPro.

Most of these GoPro Black Friday deals do not go below the normal everyday retail price of the camera. Instead, they offer extra goodies in terms of accessories, store credit or gift cards. Let’s zoom in on which different GoPro camera is right for you and which has the best Black Friday GoPro deal.

GoPro Hero+ LCD

For the entry-level action shooter, the GoPro Hero+ LCD may provide your best shot. This simpler and more affordably priced model was just released earlier this year, and it has touch-screen LCD capabilities for shot previews and easy menu navigation. With a low price tag, the Hero+ LCD still takes high-quality 1080p60 video and 8-megapixel photos.

Regular price: $299.99

Black Friday offers:

  • Target has a great Black Friday door buster deal with a GoPro Hero+ LCD limited bundle for $299.99 that also throws in a 64 GB Lexar microSD card (a $42.99 value) and a $60 Target gift card, both free.

GoPro Hero3+ Silver

Known as a “prosumer” model for the regular consumer who has some pro-level camera skills, the GoPro Hero3+ Silver ramps your photo resolution up to 10 megapixels, adds a micro HDMI port and is lighter than the GoPro Hero+ LCD. Best of all, this higher-spec model is priced similarly to the Hero+ LCD.

Regular price: $299.99

Black Friday offers:

  • BJ’s Wholesale Club does discount the camera price, but you’ll need a BJ’s membership. BJ’s awesome GoPro deal delivers the GoPro Hero3+ Silver action camera and adds a dual battery charger and extra battery all for just $199.99 after discount at the register.

GoPro Hero4 Silver

The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes your photo resolution up to 12 megapixels, adds Bluetooth capabilities in addition to Wi-Fi and takes high-resolution 4K30 video. Plenty of places have GoPro Hero4 Silver Black Friday deals with freebies thrown in.

Regular price: $399.99
