Years ago, self-filming your own hunting and fishing adventures meant carrying all sorts of heavy, awkward, complicated video cameras and equipment into the field, setting up the scenes, and hoping things worked in your favor—otherwise you’d have to readjust angles and risk spooking your quarry. Thankfully, thanks to the action-camera revolution it’s easier than ever to mount cameras in several locations (even underwater) to capture the action as it happens. If you know someone who likes the idea of being their own DIY, on-location film crew, you’re in luck—because the GoPro Black Friday holiday shopping promotions have arrived early.
Of course, the most notable GoPro items for 2020 are the GoPro Zeus Mini light and the much-anticipated debut of the GoPro HERO9 Black. The great thing about the Zeus Mini is you don’t even need a GoPro camera to use it—it has a hands-free, magnetic clip that lets anyone attach it when they’re tinkering and need to shed a little light on the situation. The HERO9, however, is the most advanced GoPro camera to date—perfect for the adventurer that wants the best audio and visual quality available in an action camera. To help you zero in on something for the film enthusiast in your life, here are a few other suggestions.
