Looks like a good deal. Will pick up the bundle in advance and price match it later. If anyone can get a screen grab of the product page showing the discounted price when the deal goes live, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

Edit: Realized this doesn't fit the Karma grip, so going with the hero5 black.

Nope! I didn't know the difference until I bought them and brought them home. GoPro does an awful job distinguishing differences between products. The Hero5 Session is a compact camera that doesn't have a 2" built-in screen and it doesn't fit the GoPro Karma Grip. They were supposed to release a harness so the Session would fit, but they never got around to it. Don't bother with with the Session - get the Hero5 Black. It's bigger and fits more universally into camera accessories. It's also more intuitive and having the screen for playback so you can see what you're filming is priceless.

Thanks! A lot of people here react to lack of product knowledge with vitriol, but you are a person with decorum Smilie


I would have probably bought one years ago, but I've always been confused by their different models too. Calling something a color to denote what trim it is is not intuitive.

I ended up getting the Hero 5 Black, but it's on 3-4 week backorder from Costco. Was hoping my puppy wouldn't be a dog before it arrives, as I'm getting the dog mount Big Grin

NP! I was in the same boat. After a night of research, I realized that the Hero5 Black was the best value in the market right now. I actually just ordered that $304 Costco bundle yesterday as well (also on backorder) and am returning the one I originally bought last week.

Also, that dog mount is a genius idea I didn't know I needed until now. Where did you order it from?

Best Buy. Missed the deal at Target by just a few hours. It was 15% off.
