GoPro Hero 6: The action camera to bag for your future adventures
Calling all adventure seekers, it's time to see the world with a nifty new travel companion. No, we don't mean swapping out your life partner but treating yourself to a new camera. Whether it be conquering the ski slopes, scaling mountains, or sky-diving, GoPro's latest successor to the Hero series — the GoPro Hero 6 — proves to be the perfect handy camera to document all of life's exciting highlights.
While its design doesn't stray too far away from its predecessor, the Hero 6 encompasses a slew of impressive features that are even new to fans of the brand (i.e. yours truly). For starters, we were thoroughly blown away by its resolution and frame rate jumps — this little fellow captures 4k at 60 frames and 2.7k at 120 frames. Read: No more blurry shots of your water activities.
Its custom-made GP1 chip also allows the camera to reach a wider dynamic range and to improve low-light performance. In for a bumpy ride? Fret not, the Hero 6 boasts a digital image stabilisation feature that can capture sharper frames on your next hilly escapade.
Did we mention it's social media friendly? You can instantly transfer the best highlights from your latest dive to your smartphone with a neat app called Quikstories. All you need is Wi-Fi.
It's safe to say that we might have just found our first investment piece for the year.
The GoPro Hero 6 is now available online and at all selected retailers.
