For the action lovers in your life!

Whether you're a seasoned action-enthusiast who needs the best camera worth attaching to a surfboard, or someone who's just started venturing outside and wants to try getting into the action camera game, GoPro has two great deals going on right now. The GoPro Hero5 Black is down to $289.99, which is $110 off its normal price and one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for that camera. The GoPro Hero5 Session is down to $199.99, which is $100 off its normal price and its lowest price ever on Amazon as well.

So what's the difference between these two cameras? Well, the Hero5 Session is an entry-level camera. In fact, it's nearly identical in size and handling to the really entry-level Hero Session. It differentiates itself with a lot more advanced video features - including going up to 4K resolution, faster frame rates, more image stabilization. The Hero5 Session also has a 10MP camera for still photos with a resolution up to 3648 x 2736.

The Hero5 Black adds onto everything the Session can do and improves upon it. For example, the Hero5 Black is larger and capable of supporting an intuitive touchscreen the Session doesn't have. It has a larger battery that can be removed and easily replaced with a spare, where the Session's battery can't be removed and needs to be recharged. While both cameras can record 4K video at 30 frames per second, the Hero5 Black supports super high frame rates at lower resolutions. Much much higher than the Session in some cases. And when it comes to photos, the Hero5 Black is a 12MP camera with a pixel resolution of 4000 x 3000.

Both cameras have plenty of ports, voice control, GPS, and many other features. These are top-of-the-line action cameras and you can't go wrong with either choice. It's really just a matter of what you want to spend. Both cameras are also on sale at B&H Photo and Best Buy.

You'll also want to consider picking up a few extras, regardless of which model you opt for. Some of our favorite GoPro accessories include the Handler (floating grip), AmazonBasic's Carrying Case, and of course an extra microSD card.
