Hero 6 is the latest action camera from GoPro. It offers the best quality imaging, thanks to the ability to shoot in 4K at 60 frames per second and 2.7K at 120 frames per second. You can still record clips in 1080p at up to 240fps.
GoPro Hero 6 is also the first action camera that comes with a custom chip, the GP1. Socionext helped them with the custom design and specifications.
How does that help you? Well, the new processor offers better dynamic range, manual control and better performance in low light. Hero 6 is definitely smarter than ever before; it’s capable of making HDR photos with minimal artifacts, even in complex scenarios (like at sunset) by taking into account the scene and camera motion. The chip also handles scene analysis to improve tuning, prioritize regions of interest, and apply metadata tags to be used later in GoPro’s editing software ecosystem.
If we’re talking about an action camera, top-notch stabilization is a must. So, GoPro Hero 6 camera has full stabilization in all three axes even when in a Wide FOV, in 4K30 and 1080p120 modes.
