The action camera leader announced a reboot of its flagship Hero camera recently as the new Hero 6 Black is now available worldwide and has improved image stabilization system eliminating camera shake and vibrations.
The stabilization is a digital effect and the camera analyzes your footage frame by frame before cropping in slightly to keep the image centered.
It shoots 4K footage at 60 frames per second and you can go into a slow-motion mode that shoots at 2.7K at 120 fps.
It also can shoot in super slow motion 240 fps at 1080 resolution. The new flagship camera has improved dynamic range and will be able to capture better during mixed sunlight conditions and in low light. Moreover, the touchscreen on the rear gets a touch-to-zoom feature.
A better Wi-Fi radio triples the transfer speeds of the last generation Hero. GoPro’s new custom processor, the GP1, powers all of the Hero 6 Black’s imaging tricks. It’s an important move for the company as it seeks to differentiate from a growing sea of imitators.
