Go pro with your footage with this Black Friday GoPro deal
GoPro Hero 9 Black: Was £379.99 Now £289.99, Very.co.uk
Since the new GoPro 11 was released in September, it’s no surprise that older models are discounted for Black Friday. Very cheap £90 off the GoPro Hero 9 action camera featured in our round of the best action cameras. Our tester said it “packs a punch with 5K capture and the addition of a hugely useful front-facing screen”. While it’s not as impressive as the brand’s latest iteration, for this price point it’s a great device for most casual users.
