GoPro unveils new Hero6 Black and Fusion action cameras

GoPro has unveiled two new action cameras – the Hero6 Black and Fusion – that offers an all-new level of quality as well as a way to capture stunning 360-degree videos so you’ll never miss a moment.

GoPro has introduced a new processor, improved image stabilisation and a faster QuikStories app that makes it even easier to share short videos.

GoPro also unveiled new mounts and accessories as well as new modes for the GoPro Karma drone.

GOPRO HERO6 BLACK – $749.95

The Hero6 Black can now shoot 4K video and 60 frames per second as well as super slow motion at 240 frames per second in full high definition 1080p.

It is powered by a custom-designed GP1 processor and now has improved dynamic range and low light performance.

The Hero6 Black also has a new touch zoom feature plus voice control in 10 languages.

And, of course, the device is waterproof up to 10m depth without the need for a housing.

The GoPro’s GP1 processor also adds computer vision and machine learning so it can analyze visual scenes and sensor data to make it easier to create QuikStories.
