Trade in Trade up and save $100

Postby sidd finch » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:50 am

If you are thinking about getting an action camera but are hesitant because of the price....GoPro has an offer you can't refuse :)

You can now get up to $100 off the latest flagship GoPro Hero5 Black. The company announced a trade-up program that gives existing owners a discount when they exchange their previous-generation GoPros: $100 off the Hero5 Black or $50 off the Hero5 Session.

The GoPro Trade-Up Program launches on April 11, but GoPro says the program will only be offered for a limited time and must be ordered through GoPro’s online store. To receive the discount, buy-back participants will ship their old GoPros to the company. Once GoPro receives cameras, they’ll get their new models, at the lower price.

That $100 wouldn't cover the cost of all the HERO 4 batteries I'd have to replace. I've heard that the HERO 4 has better audio so I can't see any advantage to upgrade to the HERO 5.

I have been really considering the new YI 4K Plus. It is using the new Ambarella chipset and at only $330 it seems like a nice camera... But as always...let it be released into the wild and see what the reviews look like first.

That offer is tempting, but I have invested in extra batteries & chargers. A guy on a Mexico forum told me the newest GoPro has leakage problems underwater. That would be the selling point for me not to swap out back doors.

I did not know about the leakage issues....

I think the 5 is probably a good camera, but I am it is doing the same things that the 4 black are doing. Better battery life but...what do you do with all the batteries you purchased already....

I will wait to see what happens when they move to the GP6 that has the H2 chipset.
