10m water proofing from sealed rubberised chassis - No more housings for normal waterproofing

The GroPro HERO6 Black, just like the HERO5 Black, can be used underwater without any need of a waterproof housing. The waterproofing comes from the HERO6 Black's sealed rubberised chassis that protects the camera in up to 10m of water, and from any small knocks and falls. The GoPro HERO6 Black even has 2m water proofing if the front lens protector is removed or damaged. If you need more protection the new optional GoPro Super Suit housing will protect your camera to depths of 60m and against gravel, dirt, knocks, and falls.

Improved image stabilisation for smooth videos. Now available in 4K

Image stabilisation is enabled by default and will smooth out any unwanted high-frequency movement for sleek and life-like looking videos. Now with the HERO 6 Black, even when in a Wide FOV, you will have full stabilization in all three axes, including in 4K30 and 1080p120 modes, which were not stabilized on the HERO5. The HERO6 Black has dedicated hardware that actively applies de-warping of images based on the motion sensors, vastly reducing warping seen in high-vibration or aggressively stabilized content. This culminates into customer content that will look smoother than ever before, in more modes, under a wider range of uses.

4K recording up to 60 frames per second, 2.7K up to 120fps, and up to 240fps on Full HD

The GoPro HERO6 Black can record Ultra HD (UHD( 4K videos at up to 60 frames per second, 2.7K up to 120fps, and Full HD up to a super fast 240fps. The frame rates of 60fps and higher will enable you to slow down the action for insane slow-mo effects.

High quality H.265 HEVC/MPEG-H video format recording

The GoPro HERO6 Black can record 4K videos in the latest H.265 HEVC/MPEG-H video format. HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) delivers video quality identical to H.264 AVC wile only using half the bit rate

Global Tone Mapping (GTM) for videos

The GoPro HERO6 Black includes Global Tone Mapping GTM for videos, allowing high-contrast shots with bright and dark regions to have improved exposure and retain details across the entire scene, to deliver a dynamic range improvement of up to two stops.

New powerful GP1 processor

The GP1 chip has been crafted from the ground up for the unique needs of the GoPro HERO 6 action camera. Doing so offers increased control over image processing, delivering the distinctive GoPro look, at a level of quality previously impossible from a GoPro camera. Beyond that, GP1 allows the action camera to perform advanced image computation, to enable more intelligent features.

Improved low-light performance

Thanks to the new GP1 processor the HERO6 Black now features improved low light performance in both video and photo modes.

Improved auto exposure and auto white balance

Now not only is the HERO6 exposure control much greater, but thanks to its increased frame rate of the image processing, it is able to shift AE from dark to bright regions significantly faster. New improvements and control over AWB enables automatic scene detection for much more accurate colors across the broad range of environments and lighting conditions. Automatic detection of underwater scenes adjusts auto white balance dynamically to capture beautiful natural colors of the underwater shot, where a red or magenta filter would have previously been required to do so.

Voice commands in 10 languages

Voice command makes recording and taking pictures easy even when you're to busy being a HERO. Keep your hands on the handlebars and start recording your favourite downhill with a simple "GoPro, start recording" voice command, or take selfies with your pole mounted, unreachable HERO6 Black with a simple "GoPro, take a picture" voice command. There are several other voice commands to explore, and native support for 10 languages (More to come) makes this feature very accessible.

2-Inch touch display

The GoPro HERO6 Black features a live-view 2-inch touchscreen display. The touch-screen display a bright and clear live view of what the HERO6 is recording as well as the current settings, battery life, and available recording time. The display also makes changing settings easy from a easy to navigate menu.

3 microphone stereo recording and built-in microphone jack

The GoPro HERO6 Black features 3 strategically placed built-in microphones from which the camera will automatically choose the best audio to record to the video track. An additional microphone (optional) can also used for more professional and directional sound.

Medium, narrow, and linear FOV video recording modes

The HERO6 Black can record narrower field-of-view videos including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear modes in resolutions of 2.7K widescreen and lower. Linear mode corrects the lens's barrel distortion but is only available in 2.7K and 1080p setting.

12 Megapixel Raw and Wide Dynamic Range photo modes

The HERO6 Black can capture 12MP RAW image files for more creative flexibility in advanced image editing software, and WDR photo mode captures a wider dynamic range for more detail in shadows and highlights.
