Further GoPro HERO 6 Black Details Emerge

Further GoPro HERO 6 Black Details Emerge

Further details of the forthcoming GoPro Hero 6 have emerged today, including new images of the new action camera. The GoPro Hero 5 replacement faces some stiff competition these days so it is surprising to see GoPro playing it almost entirely safe this time, with only minor revisions to the outgoing camera, more of a GoPro 5.1 if you ask me!

Capture crystal-clear slow-mo and high-speed action. The GoPro Hero6 Black is a performance camera with deep magic inside the box. It can shoot in 4K at 60 frames per second or 1080P at 240 frames per second. When you’re wearing bulky gloves or need both hands to control the action, use voice control to start and stop recording, or to snap a photo while filming. The integrated GPS chip tags footage with path, speed, elevation and more to create engaging edits with data overlays. Noise reduction and video stabilization give you clear audio and non-jerky footage. And you don’t need a waterproof case to tackle muddy trails, powder days or undersea adventures – the Hero6 Black is waterproof up to 10 metres. When you’re done shooting, use Quick™, the GoPro editing app, to fine-tune your masterpiece.
