GoPro Hero 6 to release this year.

https://investor.gopro.com/press-rel...s/default.aspx

"Hero6 and Fusion, our 5.2K spherical camera, are on course to launch later this year"

Since the Fusion (360 camera) has 5.2K, it wouldn't surprise me to see at least that resolution in the Hero 6. I'm hoping it'll have 4K 60p and an optical stabilizer.

After figuring out that making and publishing videos is not their thing, and after laying off about 40% of staff, they came up with a new hardware.

Saw a video of a guy unboxing the GoPro Hero 6. Was about to post it here but saw that it was removed from YouTube. GoPro must have messaged the guy to take it down. He got it off a store which was probably Best Buy because their were leaked images that came from Best Buy displays. Video was already shared on Personal-View, Reddit and many other places so a lot of people have seen it already. Based on the leaked images, we have already become aware that it will have 4K 60p but one thing that he mentioned in the video is that the stabilizer does not work with 4K 60p. Same issue with the Yi 4K Plus. The Hero 6 is also waterproofed. It has a slow motion 240 frames per second mode at 1080p while the Yi can only do 120 frames per second in 720p.


It'll supposedly cost $500.

$500 for a GoPro? They will need to lay off another 25% or so of their staff to compensate for lack of sales.

Definately $500. Wow! If this was $400, I think I would have taken the plunge right away. For $200 more, you can get an iPhone 8 which makes the $500 price seam even more shocking.

"Video Stabilization is available for all resolutions, except 4K60, 4K 4:3, 2.7K120, 2.7K60 4:3, and 1080p240".

GoPro Hero 8 vs iphone 8 Plus in 4K 60p. We obviously need more comparisons from different people.
