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

Highly recommended

The Hero 6 is a very easy to use camera that is so portable it fits in my front pocket! It records beautiful images and requires very little effort from the user. I highly recommend this product for those that want the ease of a portable video device.

Better than my Hero 5

Video capture options are better than my Hero 5 although software to handle the 4k 60fps is an issue. Hero 6 does just about everything you wanted the 5 to do and most everything the Hero 7 does for less money. Thumbs UP for sure!!!

Really cool camera!

I love making videos, but I wanted something that I could use on the go. I also didn't have a very big budget ether, which is why I didn't go with the go pro hero 7. I could get all I need for what one hero 7 would of cost me, and the stabilization didn't matter as all I would be doing was doing videos of my son and some beach and ocean videos. One down side is the door. If you are not careful, the door will get stuck trying to close it. Overall, great camera! I love it

This is my first action camera, and so far I love it. I purchased this camera to use my hiking and hunting adventures. I have had this camera for a month and so far it is doing everything I expected from it.

I love this camera. It is very useful and very fun to use. Very portable and very user friendly. The reason why I am giving it 4 stars is because you might want to buy an extra battery for it. Its dies in around 2-5 hours in the winter

How waterproof are these, sans housing? I'm shooting aquatics, leaving cameras UW for hours. This has been no problem with Hero4 with housing. How different are the new GoPros in terms of waterproofing?
