GoPro has unveiled its most powerful devices ever in the form of the Hero 6 Black and Fusion cameras.
The Hero 6 Black is the latest in a highly-successful line of wearable action cameras, and while it looks very much like its predecessor, it has been totally revamped on the inside.
It’s capable of recording 4K footage at 60fps, a marked improvement on the Hero 5 Black’s 30fps standard. 1080p recording has also been improved, supporting super slow-motion captures at an incredible 240fps.
The upgrade is thanks to the GP1 processor, the company’s first in-house chip. The GP1 has also improved the device’s image stabilisation and dynamic range.
Owners of the Hero 5 Black will know that file transfer speeds over Wi-Fi aren’t the best, but fans will be happy to know that the Hero 6 Black has tripled that rate.
Using the company’s new QuikStories function on the free Quik app, users can now compile incredible videos in mere seconds, with effects and music added in automatically.
Also added to the GoPro lineup is the new Fusion 360-degree camera, a device that takes the GoPro’s point-of-view appeal to a whole new level. Using two fisheye lenses, the camera creates spherical footage ideal for virtual reality enthusiasts.
The Hero 6 Black is will be available from early next month for around R8 500, while the Fusion’s release date and price remains unclear.
