You need to be willing to pay for a camera. For that, look at what you’re looking for before deciding. If you’re looking for a simple camera for fun, pick the cheapest one you can find. In order for you to do that, you’ll need to pay a lot.
How much does it cost to buy a camcorder, a GoPro or the rest of these accessories?
Let’s say you’re looking at the cheapest 4K camera you can find for $100. That’s a good price and if it’s good enough for you, that’d still mean you get 2/3 of the cameras in the world for a cost that’s still only about 4x that of many top cameras. But that only works if it’s a $100 camera, right?
For example, the GoPro Hero3 camera costs $230, which is nearly double the cheapest 4K camera you could buy. And even though it’s a lot less then the $170 price tag, the Hero3 only comes with 2 cameras, the Hero3 Black and Black Hero. If you go ahead and pick the cheapest 4K camera you can find, you still have 2 different options. If you’re not a big fan of the Black Hero, you can always look for cheaper Black Hero 4k. There were multiple versions of the Black Hero 4K before it went on sale. The cheaper version was the one you can still get today, but the higher end Black Hero 4k is definitely worth your time.
How much do you expect the price of GoPro to go up?
When GoPro went on sale as well as the Black Hero 4K, it looked like those two items were going to go in the $130-$150 range respectively. You could make a very good argument that all the GoPro prices would be going up a few dollars over the next few more weeks for the 4K Hero and Black Hero.
How likely is any GoPro update coming in the coming few months?
I don’t know that there is any update coming anytime soon.
Which camera should you buy right now?
It depends on where you live. In California in particular, a lot of 4K camcorders will be out very soon (most of them already). I can only tell you that it’s very unlikely that those cameras will be more expensive. But there’ll be people using the Black Hero and Hero Black which are probably going to be selling for around $
