GoPro is gearing up to launch its Hero 6 Black on September 28th. Company’s Founder CEO Nick Woodman will take wraps off the new action camera. The Hero 5 successor will retain standalone waterproof design and GPS overlay functions. However, expect the GoPro Hero 6 get a bump up in specifications. Going by the speculations, the new camera will support 4K recordings at 60 fps and 1080p at 240 fps. The latter will be useful for slow-mo. All thanks to the new in-house GP1 chip, it will also offer faster transfer rates.
The flagship Hero 5 was a great product. However, it has its fair share of shortcomings. such as lack of an external mic support and gyro stabilised camera. Such features are found even in significantly cheaper Chinese action cameras. Let us hope that GoPro addresses these issues in Hero 6 Black. As reported by TheVerge, Hero 6 Black will go on sale for a price tag of $499.
GoPro is an American company founded in 2002. It all started when Nick Woodman took a surfing trip to Australia and struggled quality action shots. So he took it upon himself to develop an action camera that doesn’t cost a fortune.
