GoPro HERO6 Black Overview

  • 1Description

Built on the existing form-factor of the HERO5 Black, the GoPro HERO6 Black action camera provides more processing power than the preceding model, while keeping to a familiar design. The optimized GP1 processor brings higher frame rates in 4K, 2.7K, and 1080p HD resolutions. Where previous models maxed out at 30 fps in 4K, the HERO6 Black can muster 60 fps for rendering smooth motion or even slow motion in timelines with slower frame rates. Other processor-intensive tasks, such as image stabilization, have also been improved in the HERO6.

Like the HERO5 Black before it, the HERO6 Black's rugged, rubberized, adventure-ready exterior is resistant to the elements and waterproof to 33' without a housing. Those with a penchant for diving can go deeper still with the separately available Super Suit housing. What would a GoPro be without mounting options? For starters, the Frame, which features the GoPro standard 2-prong accessory interface, is included along with a mounting buckle quick-release for The Frame and two adhesive mounts (one curved and one straight). Other accessories such as handlebar mounts, selfie sticks, and suction cups, for creative placement of the HERO6 Black are available separately.

The rear side of the camera is dominated by a 2" touchscreen LCD for quickly navigating menus. Once your settings are locked in, the classic one-button interface can take over for quickly starting and stopping recording and changing settings on-the-fly. If your hands are occupied, simple voice commands can start and stop recording, take a photo, or burst of photos, and more.

Quick Features
  • Photos: up to 12MP, 30 fps burst, time-lapse mode, raw file option, Wide Dynamic Range mode
  • Videos: up to 60 fps in UHD 4K, up to 120 fps in 1440p, up to 240 fps in 1080p
  • Waterproof to 33'
  • Simple one-button control
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Advanced wind-noise reduction using 3 microphones
  • Voice control
  • Digital video stabilization support for 4K up to 30 fps, 1080p up to 120 fps
  • Rear touchscreen display
  • Automatic upload to the cloud
  • Built-in GPS
Video Recording Modes
Select the desired resolution to fit your project. Record in UHD 4K resolution up to 60 fps or switch to lower resolutions such as 1080p and 720p for access to higher frame rates, more FOV (Field of View) options, and electronic stabilization. In 2.7K widescreen and lower resolutions, for instance, narrower FOV options open up including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear mode (only available in 2.7K and 1080p settings), which corrects the lens's barrel distortion.

All video recording modes can be as simple or advanced as you want them to be. If you only want to ensure that a shot is captured, auto-exposure is at your disposal. For those who are shooting less off-the-cuff footage and want complete control, manual control of exposure is also available.

Audio for video is recorded using three microphones. In normal conditions, the HERO6 Black will process the audio for a stereo signal. If high winds start affecting the audio, the HERO6 Black can intuit which microphone is picking up the best sound and automatically switch to that microphone in real-time to filter out any excess wind noise. While the audio will only be in mono, you will know that you're getting the highest possible audio quality.

Photo Modes
Raw File Option: In addition to standard JPEG capture, the HERO6 Black can also capture raw images in the .GPR format. Raw images offer enthusiasts or professional photographers more flexibility after the photo is taken. Raw images can be processed after-the-fact for higher quality output.

WDR Mode: Bridging the gap between JPEG capture and raw, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) mode is also available. If the scene has dark shadows and bright highlights, WDR mode will retain better detail in those areas.

Burst Mode: Bursts of photos can be taken during high-action sequences to ensure that you capture the moment. The camera's buffer can fit up to 30 photos from a single burst, and burst durations can be set from six seconds to one second, effectively offering a 30 fps burst of 12MP photos.

Time-Lapse Mode: Record clouds floating by, traffic snaking through cityscapes, or stars and constellations tracing their way across the sky with the time-lapse mode. Set your interval from a picture every 1/2 second to every minute for different effects.

GoPro Apps
GoPro and Quik apps allow you to access and edit your GoPro footage with simple to use yet powerful functions. Quik Stories combines the functionality of both apps, automatically downloading GoPro footage from your HERO6 and composing an easily shareable montage of your adventures on-the-spot. The HERO6 Black is the first HERO with 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity, for faster video transfer times compared to 2.4 GHz available on previous models.

    GoPro HERO6 Black Reviews

    HERO6 Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera.... Great App This is not an upgrade review, but rather just to let others know that the Hero 6 Black is pretty impressive. I debated whether to go with the 5 or the 6 and decided to go with the 6. I have not been disappointed. I wanted to have the option to shoot 4K at 60 fps and Slomo at 240 fps. The difference in price did not matter to me. The GoPro App knows when I have new footage and asks if I want to bring it over to my iPhone. The App then preps the footage to share. I also like having the underwater option, something I cannot do with my Canon 1Dx, ,5DS, or Sony A7rII. The stabilization works well too. I hope the company gets through is current difficulties.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for Low-light, concert video I am sure the GoPro does well as the "action cam" for outdoor filming in good light - so I'm not trying to knock it.? My review is specifically geared toward low light and concert photography.? I was tasked with filming a concert tour and resorted to implementing GoPros on stage to get more coverage of a large band.? I was immediately dissatisfied with the noise level and how quickly the image broke under colored concert lights.? I'm not saying it is a bad camera, but I would stay away from it for these purposes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid little camera! This is my first GoPro, and I am quite impressed with it overall. The video quality is quite good so long as there's sufficient light. Because of the small sensor it's pretty bad indoors in low light, but outdoors in bright light the footage is vibrant and colourful. The stabilization works fairly well, though it's a shame it doesn't work at 4K/60fps, only at 4K/30fps. Battery life is definitely short, so buy a second one. It has frozen up on me a few times so I've had to pull the battery; I hope GoPro continues to improve the firmware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Key is to Accept it's Limitations I intend to use this while flying an airplane and riding a motorcycle. For me, the principal limitations are abysmal low light performance, unacceptable sound quality and understandably limited battery life. The solution is to not use it in low light, to record sound to a separate recorder and to purchase additional batteries. Those issues addressed, I think that it is an ingenious camera with an excellent user interface, and reasonable value now that GoPro is pricing the camera more realistically. I will probably purchase a second GoPro. On price, the Hero5 Session is very attractive, but the look is different. I'm inclined to think that a second Hero6 will save enough time and annoyance in processing to make up for its higher price. By the way, I'm using the camera with Sumsung Evo Plus 64GB cards, and they work fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was expecting more The picture and video quality is great, but the battery life is very poor, the camera responds very slow, gets stuck in saving mode for no reason and I have lots of random upside down videos. All of this with the latest software. I'm comparing it with a Hero 5 Session which I used before. Also the charging cable is very short and I can't charge it while driving without buying more stuff.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems very glitchy I'm still debating on whether I want to return the Hero6... I got it right before a snowboard trip and started using it immediately and was having problems from the get go.? Yes, the quality of the video and photos are amazing, but when the camera doesn't charge or turn off or record when it doesn't feel like it, then it's quality doesn't matter.? The camera charged just fine at first then about 4 days later, I had it plugged into a wall outlet and the red light was on like it was charging, but when I grabbed it the morning, the battery was still at 10% which was a huge bummer!? But then it charged fine in another spot... I am a semi-professional videographer and planned on using this in my work, but I'm not confident on its reliability!? I can't show up to a shoot and the camera won't turn on or charge while I'm there... I also need to be able to charge it on the go in the car if need be like I did with all my other POV cameras ever and this one doesn't want to.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4K/60p Disappointment / Sun Flares Have Single Ray I just bought this and tested 4K/30p vs. 4K/60p. I'm very disappointed in the 4K/60p. The footage is grainy and the audio/video is way out of sync no matter what PC / video card I used (both are i7 PCs). I filmed using an ND4 and a PL filter. The 4K/30p footage is decent and the new stabilization works pretty well, but the footage has a very intrusive single ray of light when pointing at the sun. I wish I had kept my HERO5!
    Date published: 2017-10-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gopro yet, worth the extra $100 over the 5. The stabilization feature works great and 60fps at 4k make this camera ABSOLUTELY worth it over the gopro 5. The only reason you would get the 5 is because you want to use the karma grip/drone, but i think those are both overpriced and sub-par. Also if you are thinking of upgrading from a 3/4 black, just sell your old one and do it. This thing makes my old 3 look like a retro toy, and the touchscreen makes getting the shot you want much faster.

    Can you enable EIS while shooting 4K, or only 2.7K? If so, is it possible to shoot 4K EIS at 60fps, or just 30fps?
    Asked by: Tim F.
    EIS is not available when shooting 4K 60 fps or 1080p 240 fps. It is available while shooting 2.7k 60 and 1080p/120.

    I have the hero 4 silver and was thinking of upgrading to the hero 6. I'm interested in the hero 6 because of the raw photo capabilities, which the hero 4 does not have. Does anyone know how much better is the raw photos verses the jpg photo with the hero 6?
