The GoPro Hero8 action camera continues to be a very popular pickup from GoPro, and today you can get a bundle that includes some nice extras (opens in new tab) on sale for just $249 at Walmart. This is about $100 off what this bundle normally goes for or what it would cost to get each piece individually. Even with holiday pricing that features the Hero8 on sale for $250 at some retailers, you'd still have to pay another $50 for the extras included in Walmart's bundle. No matter how you're looking at it, you're getting one of GoPro's best action cameras at a significant discount.
This deal is part of Walmart's second Black Friday sales event (opens in new tab) going on through the end of the week. You can save big on a ton of electronics and other items. The third event will be taking place near the end of the month, and Walmart+ members (opens in new tab) can get access to it four hours early.
You actually get three total batteries with this bundle, which is amazing for hot swapping while you're out recording your favorite action shots. The camera itself can record 4K video and even has a 12MP camera.
With this bundle you get the GoPro Hero8 Black action camera, a dual battery charger, and a bonus battery, which means you'll have a total of three batteries. It also comes with a carrying case. All those batteries plus the charger means you will never run out of juice while you're out in the field. Hot swap batteries and just keep going. It's the perfect solution for anyone looking to do long-term action shots.
The Hero8 was at one point replaced by the more advanced Hero9, but that camera never quite struck the same cord it seems like. It might be that the Hero9 is just outside of what people want to pay for an action camera since it runs about $100 to $150 more than the Hero8 on average. Whatever the reasoning, you benefit with big savings on an awesome device.
One of the great things about the Hero8 was that it was designed to travel with you. Obviously, in order to take great action shots you need some great action. The Hero8 has a pocketable design and folding fingers on the base for easily swapping mounts. The side door makes changing out batteries that much faster, and the lens is even more impact resistant than previous generations.
You can record video in 4K at 60fps, and you can take 12MP still photos. Since you may be using the GoPro to run around or go biking or surfing, you need some great image stabilization. The Hero8 HyperSmooth 2.0 tech has three different elvels including a boost that helps you get your video as smooth as possible. You can also easily shoot a time lapse or get burst images with LiveBurst.

Wish this was for the Hero 9.. The Hero 9 is a pretty good step up in features.
