For anyone who has been watching all my Caraoke, surfing, camping, and hiking videos, they were all filmed with my GoPro 4 Silver…It’s probably the best travel and action camera investment I’ve made in the last 5 years.
Normally, they go for about $399 (plus tax and tip). The cheapest I’ve ever seen it around Black Friday 2015 was $329. I just found out about a GREAT deal through Dick’s Sporting Goods that will get you it delivered for free in the United States (not sure about Hawaii or Alaska though) for only $299, with FREE SHIPPING.
The catch is, it’s a FLASH deal, meaning it only lasts til 10 pm EST TONIGHT (January 28th, 2016). Just click on this link to go to the Dick’s Sporting Goods website, add the GoPro 4 Silver (normally $399) to your shopping cart, and it’ll knock off $100 to make your total $299, with FREE shipping!
I don’t work for GoPro or Dick’s Sporting Goods but with all my travel trips and footage, and GoPro’s recent partnership with up and coming live-streaming video app Periscope, this is a great investment. My only minor complaints about the GoPro 4 Silver is that it’s pretty horrible at low-light/dark settings without extra backup light (like worse than the iPhone video), it doesn’t have the greatest battery life (especially if you use the touch/video screen), and it can be quite shaky for video footage if you don’t have a good mount or hold it steady (which can be taken care of by stabilizing the footage on iMovie).
It’s possible GoPro will release a way better GoPro 5 Silver or something in the future, but for now this is the best option you have for the best price! It’s a way better deal and useable camera than the GoPro 4 Black or the GoPro Session. Hope you all manage to get one, if you’ve been looking for one!
(NOTE: There is a way to get the final price of the GoPro 4 Silver down to $265 by following the complicated Slickdeals.net directions here, but I figured it’s more trouble than it’s worth.)
I’ll be routinely posting up great Hawaii travel deals, airfares, and other options for people here and on my Facebook page, so just LIKE my Facebook page to get all the info! Until next time…
