Unless you are going to stream live, there isn't a point to get gopros

Buy a few cheap chinese ones, they're like $40-50 bucks each. This way you won't have to worry about too much losing one and $400+ down the drain.

Gopro 7 is a good buy for most people.

We are due for the Gopro 9 in the fall (new Gopro every year).

GoPro 8 has a different form factor than 7/6/5, so GoPro will mostly likely release new accessories that are only designed to fit 8 and newer.

The difference between the 8 and 7 is that the 8's stabilization is slightly better, and you can use stabilization in more video modes. 8 has integrated fingers that flip out. And the lens is non-replaceable in the 8 (so you really should buy this - https://gopro.com/en/ca/shop/mounts-acc ... C-001.html)

I would go for the 8 at least if you buying for the long term. Costco's deal is good. Or wait for the 9 and see how the 8 gets discounted.

Please update your profile to include your city. It's helpful when you post about something regional ucp.php?i=ucp_profile&mode=profile_info

Just bought a Hero7 Black for $217 + tax with a coupon.
I was gonna post it, but as soon as I bought mine, it went out of stock.

It was Sold Out a couple days ago, but I've been refreshing and bought it as soon as I saw one available.
Thought they restocked it, but maybe someone cancelled their order.
