GoPro has officially announced their latest action camera the Hero6 Black.
GoPro Hero6 Black
The Hero6 Black has a similar grey & black design to the Hero5 Black from last year but most of the changes are internal. The camera now has GoPro’s custom designed GP1 processor.
The new processor should help with better video including up to 4K at 60fps and 1080p at 240 fps. The Hero6 Black also brings advanced video stabilization. The camera is compatible with GoPro’s Quick Stories.
You can also expect improved dynamic range, low-light performance with the Hero6 Black along with being compatible with the Karma drone and existing GoPro mounts. The new camera is still waterproof up to 33ft (10m) without additional housing and still has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Accelerometer and a Gyroscope.
The Hero6 Black is available now for $649 CAD ($499 USD) from GoPro.com and retailers worldwide.
GoPro also announced more details about their 360-degree camera, the Fusion. The Fusion can capture spherical content in 5.2K at 30fps and 3K at 60fps and 360 audio as well as 18-megapixel Spherical photos.
You’ll be able to share your footage from the GoPro Fusion as VR content to be viewed on compatible viewers. You can also use the GoPro’s app new OverCapture to recapture and share your spherical video as standard fixed perspective video. The OverCapture will be coming to the GoPro app in early 2018.
The Fusion is waterproof up to 16ft (5m), compatible with most GoPro mounts and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
The GoPro Fusion is available to pre-order now from GoPro.com in Canada, US, UK and the European Union and starts shipping in November for $699 USD.
GoPro Karma Follow
The GoPro Karma drone will be getting a new feature that will follow you. There are three new modes that take advantage of the new feature. The first is called Follow which will follow the Karma Controller as you walk with it and framing you in the shot.
The next is Watch, where the drone will keep the Karma controller in-frame while hovering in place. Next is, Cable Cam, which allows you to set up to 10 waypoints for more complex shots. The last one is Look Up Tilt, which allows you to tilt the drone’s camera upwards to above the horizon.
