    Best GoPro to get right now

    360fly 4K

    Best single-lens 360-degree camera

    The 360fly 4K is just all-around a better camera than the original, and its excellent mobile app is a definite plus compared to competing cameras. You'll just have to be forgiving of its image quality.

    TomTom Bandit

    Best for fast online sharing

  • GoPro Hero4 Session

    Best grab-and-go camera

    What it lacks in performance and features, it makes up for in design and ease of use. And thanks to a couple of price drops, this tiny waterproof cube of a camera is now worth buying.
