GoPro Launches the Hero 6 line and Its First Virtual Reality Camera, the Fusion

Posted by at 11:47 am on September 28, 2017

GoPro today debuted two new cameras – the Hero 6 and the Fusion.

The Hero 6 Black camera features 4K footage at 60 frames per second, internal stabilizing technology, and a new, custom-designed GP1 processor powering the device, said CEO Nick Woodman at an event to show off the new devices.

High-frame-rate recording also gets a resolution bump, with the HERO6 able to record 240 fps video at up to 1080p resolution, as opposed to the 720p resolution cap on the HERO5 Black for the same frame rate. Another new feature is support for 5 GHz Wi-Fi.

The Fusion has cameras mounted on the front and back, enabling 360-degree footage and VR capabilities. The camera also introduces what the company calls Overcapture, allowing the user to select a specific perspective from the spherical feed for a more limited view and shareable video

The two cameras were already listed in the company’s online store before the announcement by Woodman. The Hero 6 is available for purchase now, Woodman said, and the Fusion is available for preorder and will start shipping in November.
