Weighing less than 500g, the GoPro HERO7 is perfect for travelling

Not so long ago, it was a given that you'd take a camera on holiday. Today, your smartphone may well be the best camera you've ever had, but it can't always keep up with the action you throw at it. Get £50 of holiday vouchers from Currys PC World when you swap your smartphone for an epic GoPro action camera.

There are plenty of moments when you'll want a more adventurous partner to capture your unforgettable moments – something that's rugged, compact and waterproof for holiday activities. That's where a dedicated action model like the GoPro HERO7 Black comes in.

Whether you're capturing extreme snow-sports footage, swimming in the sea, or just running around with the dog nearer home, the GoPro HERO7 Black can capture videos and photos you'd never be able to get with a phone. 

Here's why it's the perfect companion this summer (and all year round, in fact)...

The GoPro HERO7 can be mounted or placed just about anywhere to get a unique shot. Think bike helmet, surfboards and more.

Taking the GoPro HERO7 black on holiday 

The GoPro HERO7 Black is up for anything you might throw at it on holiday – a tough and portable camera that can be submerged up to 10m deep without any extra housing.

It captures 4K videos, 12MP stills, timelapses, photo bursts, night photography and underwater photography, plus some epic 'hypersmooth' image stabilisation features.

The timelapse function is great for speeding up longer recordings to make them short and shareable, and you can shoot in portrait mode as well as landscape – ideal for speedy uploads to Snapchat or Instagram while you're travelling.

Sharing your photos and videos is just as easy as on a smartphone, too. The HERO7 has WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC, and posting is instant with the GoPro app. You can also stream to Facebook Live and YouTube, so that friends and family can see travel moments as they happen.

The HERO7 can be controlled by voice commands, enabling you to shoot completely hands-free. Photos of the whole gang are a cinch too, thanks to a photo timer.
