The Hero 11 Black is the latest camera in GoPro's flagship lineup, which means that this Hero 9 Black is now two generations old. But this older model is still more than enough camera for most people's needs, and at this price is one of the best-value action cameras you'll find out there at the moment. It boasts stunning 5K video capture and 20-megapixel still photos, plus it has a detachable lens and tons of different mods (sold separately) so you can optimize it for your needs. It's also equipped with a front and rear LCD display so you always have a clear view of what you're shooting. Plus the built-in stabilization and horizon leveling keeps the action in the frame, and you can slow the footage down by up to 8x so you don't miss a single moment.
