Black Friday 2016 GoPro Deals will be Incredible

GoPro is under intense pressure after posting a disappointing Q3. Expect exceptional Black Friday deals GoPro Hero cameras.

GoPro launched the all-new Hero5 line of cameras that can auto-upload photos and videos to GoPro Plus, a cloud-based subscription service that makes it easy to access, edit and share GoPro content anytime, anywhere using a mobile phone or computer. The new GoPro cameras need to push sales during the crucial Holiday quarter to make up for steep revenue decline in Q3.

GoPro missed analyst's revenue expectations by a wide margin with $240.5 million. A year ago the company had revenues of $400 million, making this a whopping 40 percent drop. The GoPro stock fell almost 23% after the earnings announcement. After this disaster quarter, GoPro needs a stellar Holiday season. One way to make sure that this will happen are deals, deals, deals. We expect Black Friday 2016 GoPro camera deals on all Hero lines including the new Hero5.

The new Hero5 cameras are now waterproof to 33 feet without the need for a separate water-housing and feature voice control, image stabilization, simplified controls, and improved battery life. Also new to both Hero5 cameras is the ability to capture non-fisheye perspectives as well as the traditional wide-angle look GoPro has become famous for. Both Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session are compatible with GoPro's new Karma drone and handheld stabilization system, shipping since October 23, 2016.

The Hero5 Black has a regular price of $399.99. The Hero5 is already in short supply at Amazon.com. The action camera is off to a good start, but GoPro needs to make sure that there is enough supply.

Chinese drone giant DJI is helping GoPro indirectly with the sales of the new GoPro Karma drone. DJI's Mavic Pro has severe shipping delays. New orders will not ship in time for Christmas. The GoPro Karma is shipping end of November when ordered now from the GoPro shop.
