We’ve had a taste of what’s to come from GoPro. Take a closer look at the product improvements coming out of the woodwork of the world’s #1 action camera company.
When GoPro unveiled HERO6 Black, the most powerful and convenient GoPro, earlier this month it took the community by storm.
Powered by GoPro’s custom-designed GP1 processor, HERO6 achieves an entirely new level of performance including stunning 4K60 and 1080p240 video and the most advanced video stabilization ever achieved in a GoPro. GoPro also launched Fusion, its bar-setting waterproof, mountable 5.2K spherical camera. Additionally, GoPro introduced new mounts and accessories plus a new Follow mode for its Karma drone.
GoPro’s founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman, introduced the HERO6 Black and Fusion cameras to an international audience at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California. Coupled with premium quality, there are several upgrades notably improvements to the GPU.

“HERO6’s next-level image quality, video stabilization and three times faster QuikStories performance makes it a powerful storytelling extension of your smartphone,” CEO, Nick Woodman told Ace+ Media.
“It’s never been easier to live it, then share it…using a GoPro.”
