Hands-on Review: GoPro HERO6 Black


I was invited once again to the GoPro official product announcements and HERO6 Black launch event in San Francisco this week – where we got to try out the new camera in some creative and fun events. I’ve also tested it in various scenarios over the following weekend while comparing it directly to the HERO5 Black, to show some of the best new features and improvements.

First: The Launch Event

In true GoPro fashion, this year’s product announcements were quite impressive to experience in person – led by charismatic founder and CEO, Nick Woodman. With the introduction of their new Fusion 360 cam, projected on the dome of the Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, it was a perfect display for the spherical capture from the camera and other amazing GoPro product videos.

While the Fusion is slated for delivery in November (we’ll be reviewing that when its available) and the Karma Drone gets a bit of an update,┬áthe real star of the show was the new HERO6 Black – which physically looks exactly like the HERO5 Black – but that’s where it stops.

So let’s take a quick look at what was announced at this event. I’ve provided links to the product pages for those who wish to get more technical specs, pricing, etc. I’ll be getting into my hands-on experience later in this article.
