As expected, GoPro just announced the new HERO 6 but also a new VR camera called Fusion and we share with you a first sneak pick at both of them.
The HERO 6 looks practically identical to the last generation of GoPro however internally it brings a number of interesting features including:
- 12MP sensor (same as before) but with better image quality (in stills and video).
- Includes a new GP1 processor for better dynamic range.
- HDR photos and videos.
- RAW stills.
- 4K at up to 60fps (vs. 30fps on earlier models), also shoots 4k at 4:3 aspect ratio.
- 2.7k at up to 120fps and 1080p at up to 240fps.
- Voice control, touchscreen, zoom (digital) and more advanced (digital) image stabilization (3 axis).
- Better, faster auto exposure (from moving from dark to light places and vice versa).
- GPS, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.
- WiFi + Bluetooth (and 3x Faster Offload Speeds via 5GHz Wi-Fi).
- Price: $500 (up from $400 for the Hero 5 Black).
Other than these things the two cameras (Hero 6/Hero 5 black) are practically identical – both have the same external design, 10m waterproof, dual mic, battery, Karma grip etc.
