First Look Video on the GoPro HERO6

Faster Processing

At the heart of the GoPro HERO6 Black hums the new optimized GP1 processor, making the HERO6 Black the fastest HERO to date. Able to record UHD 4K video at up to 60 fps, the HERO6 represents a doubling in processing capabilities over the HERO5 Black, which could record UHD 4K up to 30 fps. High-frame-rate recording also gets a resolution bump, with the HERO6 able to record 240 fps video at up to 1080p resolution, as opposed to the 720p resolution cap on the HERO5 Black for the same frame rate.

5 GHz Wi-Fi

Importing videos onto your phone is now a faster process with the HERO6 Black. 5 GHz Wi-Fi support means faster video transfers to compatible handsets because of the higher frequency and less interference than the crowded 2.4 GHz spectrum. Spend more time shooting, editing, and sharing your videos, rather than waiting for your clips to transfer.

Advanced Image Stabilization

While the HERO5 Black introduced image stabilization to the HERO family of cameras, the HERO6 Black can take advantage of its new GP1 processor to apply a more advanced image stabilization than previously available. What would have been shaky and jarring footage without the stabilization can now be recorded with stabilization for smoother results, whether handheld or mounted on your gear.
