Been on the lookout for a really good action camera deal? Look no further because the best one has got a massive discount.

The GoPro Hero 12 Black is available now for just AU$487 from eBay thanks to a checkout code that slashes AU$60 off the listed price which, incidentally, happens to be quite less than the official RRP of AU$649.

GoPro's latest action cam, the Hero 12 Black, is only a few months old, but that hasn't stopped eBay from knocking off AU$60 from the list price of AU$547. That itself is AU$102 less than the RRP of AU$649. Use the code HGTNOV at checkout and an additional AU$60 gets slashed off. Your final price is just AU$487, which is a right steal for this camera.

While it shares a lot of features with the GoPro Hero 11 Black – including the same sensor resolution – the GoPro Hero 12 Black has some upgrades that make it a worthy upgrade. Namely, a new mounting option, Bluetooth mic support, dual-channel audio, and HDR video. This makes it the ideal choice for the pros and editors and also giving it a spot in our best action camera roundup.

Still featuring a 27MP sensor as the Hero 11 Black, and capable of allowing several aspect ratios including 8:7, you can capture stunning 5.3K/60p video. It's best results are when the lighting conditions are great as it still struggles in low-light, as has every other GoPro before it. You can also use a lens mod that allows for up to a 177º field of view.

Bluetooth audio support, which is new here, means you can use any wireless headphone that has a built-in mic to record your narrations or voiceovers – AirPods will do the trick. Also handy for the pros is the addition of Timecode Sync, as well as GP-Log and LUT support. 

What is misses out on over the Hero 11 Black is GPS. If you really want to record motion metadata and gather metrics like speed, you'll need to look at the GoPro Hero 11 Black, available for AU$456 from The Good Guys on eBay using the coupon code HGTNOV (down from AU$579).

Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve.
