GoPro HERO7 Black £299 John Lewis & Partners with 2 years warranty

61
Found 15th Apr
This is the lowest I've seen for this great action cam.
The Black version gives you the best stabilisation, 'gimbal-like' according to reviews.

GoPro's HERO7 Black action cam combines top-notch 4K UHD visual quality with gimbal-like HyperSmooth video stabilisation. An intelligent photo mode delivers 12MP photo quality, optimised with HDR. It's rugged and waterproof without a housing, and is easy to control with an intuitive touch screen. Connected to the GoPro app, your shots transfer automatically to your device and you can live stream, tag GPS location, share your work in an instant, and create your own QuikStories mini movies with the Quik app (apps available on iOS and Android).

£299 at John Lewis, or £292.99 at a grey market online store many people have problems with...

For the sake of 6 quid, I don't know why anyone would choose eGlobal over JL.
Loss of quality when using stabalisation.

Asda
Tesco
Ikea
John lewis etc.

So you buy via that and you get discount.
John lewis offering 5% at the moment
Looks like amazon is down to £299 as well but 5% discount additional & 2 year warranty sealed it for me with JL


Anyone with suggestions about accessories ?
Great price. Thanks OP - ordered. This is cheaper than with student discount via GoPro’s own site. Had a few gift vouchers knocking about too.

For accessories the third party packs are much cheaper and do the job fine, depends on what activities you will be using for but something like this one for £10.99 covers most situations (head, chest, bike/pole, car, float grip, tripod & selfie stick).

Amazon has clever algorithms which are programmed.

when they see the Bids (Lots of people buying) and they see stock reducing the Price goes higher when certain stock thresholds are triggered.

Its the same technique which is used in trading.its called "lowballing"

These companies know a LOT and i mean a LOT about our habits.. what time we buy most what we buy etc etc


When you sit in front of computer if you think you are in control . YOU are Wrong

Cracking price for a great camera, heat
Amazing price for this.
Does anyone have link for comparison with this and Gopro 5....
Thanks OP, ordered one and picking it up tomorrow

I’m all in for a risk of “trust” - how can you help me with a 5% voucher? :/ trekking a volcano in Bali in May - a GoPro black would be awesome!
Also would love a 5% code

I have access to a similar scheme, it can be pretty good

I got caught out once though because they aren't refundable for cash. I bought £150 worth of argos vouchers intending to buy a baby crib, then the next day amazon dropped their price for the crib to £120. I bought from amazon for the cheaper price but I was then stuck with loads of argos vouchers which I didn't need. Eventually got them used up!

Agreed, if you’re buying a GoPro for good audio quality then you’re definitely looking at the wrong camera.

I’ve got a Hero 5 Black and shot an absolutely lovely holiday video and just replaced audio in post.

I've been looking at getting this via the gopro site using student discount and for me it works out cheaper there (£329 minus 20% discount = £263.99). This is good if you don't have access to student discount though.

It cannot be fixed, they do it by cropping the sensor, every phone camera does the same.

Well, if the sensor captures more than 4k and then the software just floats a 4k picture inside it to stabilise, then they can make the software more efficient without compromising resolution/quality

I have the Hero7 black and I think stabilisation is impressive. Filmed during the weekend riding my bike on quite rough tow paths and result is very good.

Damn. It was £379.99 yesterday via the GoPro site. With the drop to £329 it is cheaper with student discount.

Actually, on the GoPro site it reverts back to £379 when you enter the 20% off student code ie £303.99. Cheaper via JL.

Oh no..bad timing, maybe you could cancel and order via the cheaper option?

Ah I see that's sneaky!
Very good camera but the batteries that come with it (samsung batteries branded on the side) get hot and expand too big to pull out, I ripped of the plastic tab that was attached to mine I had to throw away a battery and ordered some more but made my own pull tabs out of scotch tape, really lame attention to detail there but have being getting on well it since

and yes you can only record stabilised footage at a lower than 4k resolution which isnt really much of a restriction, I record at 1440p anyway as it also allows for a higher frame rate

Not correct. You can record "hypersmooth" stabilised footage at 4k, 60 frames per second.
Works brilliantly, and if like me you ordered it earlier in the year from JL and email them, they will refund the difference.

This is one of the reasons I’ve ordered one. All the reviews say stabilisation all the way up to 4K 60 frames a second.
what are the accessories people recommend ?
