$399.99 with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $68
Is It Worth It?: Despite being the step-down model to the pricier Hero4 Black, CNET says the Hero4 Silver is the best GoPro for the money, giving this action cam its coveted Editors' Choice award. Though we saw this cam for $40 less last Wednesday, today's deal offers more value since you also get a 32GB microSDHC card and a $50 Amazon gift card. The GoPro4 Silver features up to 4K video recording, up to 12-megapixel photos at 30 fps, waterproof housing (up to 131 feet), WiFi, and Bluetooth.

$94.99 with free shippingEXPIRED
Lowest By: $105
Is It Worth It?: The HTC RE is fun to use, and if you don't expect too much out of it (like movie-making chops), it does the job, says Digital Trends. Currently at $95, it's 50% off, $4 under our Black Friday mention, and closer to an impulse buy than its more expensive competitor, the GoPro Cam. It features a grip sensor, up to 1080p video capture, water-proof design, wide angle lens, and digital image stabilization. It's also available at this price in Navy.

Features include a 3" LCD, 1080p video recording, two SDXC memory card slots, and HDMI.
