Black Friday Deals on 4K Gadgets: Cameras, Monitors, Laptops and others
Stephan Jukic – November 15, 2015
While 4K ultra HD TVs are definitely the dominant stage players in the current run up to Black Friday 2015, they certainly aren’t the only cool pieces of ultra-advanced 4K UHD technology that’s being put up for some awesome offers.
In this second part of our original Black Friday 2015 deals post, we’re going to take a look at what else is on sale through some of the biggest online and offline retailer deals going on right now. With cameras, PC monitors, desktop PCs and laptops all coming out with 4K resolution built into their specs, some excellent pieces of technology are hitting the consumer market and Black Friday is this year’s perfect time to snap up some of these gadgets at prices represent some of the best discounts of the year.
Now, without further ado, let’s see what’s going to be market down nicely in the world of the world’s best 4K UHD cameras, monitors, laptops and other interesting devices with 4K video or resolution that are to be found on sale.
Starting with Best Buy, our first Black Friday deal comes to us courtesy of retail giant Best Buy, which is putting one of GoPro’s best 4K UHD action cameras on sale for a retail price of $399.99, the Hero 4. Now, this price isn’t actually what we’d call a discount since the camera costs the same amount on the GoPro website itself but when bought at Best Buy during the Black Friday sale event, the Hero 4 will come with an $80 Gift Card and a 64GB Extreme Plus Memory Card as an accessory, which isn’t such a bad deal at all. The Hero 4 Action camera is one of GoPro’s latest and finest sch devices, with the capacity to shoot 4K UHD video at 30 frames per second as well as Full HD and 720p footage, in addition to being capable of taking 12 MP still photos or extracting still shots from its 4K footage.
Best Buy is also offering up one of Apple’s 27 inch iMacs with a 5K Retina display for a discounted price of $1,649.99, which represents a nice little chunk of a discount from the computer’s more conventional retail price of $1,799 on the Apple website itself. The 5K iMac not only offers a level of resolution so sharp that it’s pretty much impossible to see pixilation at its native resolution, it’s also one very powerful piece of hardware.
Next up, there is Best Buy’s offer on one of DJI’s Phantom 3 drones with 4K UHD camera. These awesome little UAV’s represent some of the most advanced consumer technology in the personal-use drone industry and also come with a gimbal-mounted 4K ultra HD video camera that can shoot video and photo stills in a range of resolutions right up to 3840 x 2160 UHD. The DJI Phantom 3 will be retailing during Black Friday for a sale price of $1,159.99, at a bit of a weak discount of just 8%. Check out other drones for sale here.
Finally, there will be a major discount on Samsung’s new BD-6500/ZA Streaming 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player, which is going to retail for $87.99, at a massive discount of 51%, or $92 off its original retail price. The BD-6500 isn’t a true 4K UHD Blu-ray player per se but what it does offer might be very useful to owners of 4K UHD TVs and plenty of Blu-ray discs in HD: it will do its own part to upscale the Full HD of Blu-ray to fit a 4K TV display.
In the form of non-4K TV deals, other retailers like Amazon, Costco, Walmart or Target seem to be a bit sparse at least for now. However we will be updating this page regularly as new offers arrive. And be sure to check back soon. Also check out our 4K UHD TV Black Friday Deals post, which is also regularly being updated as new offers arrive.
