GoPro Hero 6 Black vs GoPro Hero 5 Black

go Pro Hero6

 

GoPro unveiled the Hero 6 Black, which brings 60fps recording at 4K resolution. The company uses a custom processor – labeled GP1 – which enables the higher frame rates.

The new model can also record 1080p / 240fps and 2.7K / 120fps video. The Electronic Image Stabilization has been improved as well, the Hero6 Black offers EIS at up to 4K / 30fps and 1080p / 120fps.

The GP1 chip also promises improved dynamic range and low-light performance. Battery life? You can expect the same longevity as the Hero5 Black in the same modes.

 

 

Other than frame rate, the new Hero6 Black also has faster Wi-Fi, now working on the 5GHz bands to speed up transfers tremendously.

For stills, you’re still getting 12MP JPG or RAW files and the dedicated Wide Dynamic Range mode is still on board. The camera is waterproof to 10m without a case, there’s a built-in GPS and a 2” LCD screen too.
