Meet the All-New GoPro Hero 6

by | Oct 3, 2017 | Cameras

The GoPro Hero 6 has been officially unveiled last week, and it looks promising. GoPro’s sixth-generation flagship action cam is packed with doubtless tempting improvements, such as the 4K recording at 60fps capability. That’s double what its younger brother, the Hero 5, brought to the table last year. On this post, we’ll share with you the camera’s full list of specs, its key changes, its price, availability, and release date in the Philippines. Because we know you, Indios, are eager to get your hands on one.

GoPro Hero 6: What’s new?

The headlining change with the Hero 6 is higher frame rate capture, a staple update after each generation. With the Hero 6, you may now record up to 60fps 4K footage, essential for that satisfying, crisp, slow-motion footage. The Hero 6 can also record 1080p / 240fps and 2.7K / 120fps video. This is all thanks in large part to GoPro’s new custom processor, dubbed GP1. Aside from frame rates, the Hero 6 has been rebuilt to perform better in low-light and retain a higher dynamic range. Its Electronic Image Stabilization (E.I.S.) has been improved as well, but it only works from 1080p / 120fps up to 4K / 30fps footage. Finally, its Wi-Fi capabilities have been improved for faster speed transfers (5 GHz).
