For the adrenaline junkies or those moto vloggers or casual vlogger who are looking for a portable camera or upgrading their existing camera, there is good news for them. The newest member of the GoPro, GoPro Hero 6 Black, which was launched just last month is available for purchase in Nepal. Oliz Store has brought the GoPro Hero 6 Black in Nepal.
The new Hero6 has retained the similar design and build of its predecessor GoPro Hero5, with similar ruggedness and waterproofing. The latest processor “GP1” makes the Hero6 different for the Hero5. The newest processor is capable of delivering twice the performance of its predecessor.
The device features the same 2-inch touch screen, with the improvements being more vibrant display with punchy colors. The touchscreen is also more responsive than that of Hero5’s. Another major upgrade on the Hero6 will be its capability to shoot videos at higher frame rates. 4K videos can now be shot at 60fps, 2.7K videos at 120fps and Full-HD (1080p) videos at 240fps. With this feature, slow-motion videos can be shot and played without conspicuous stutters.
Transferring photos and video footages to the smartphone has also been made fast and seamless. The newbie uses 5GHz Wi-Fi because of which, the device is capable of transferring the data to the smartphones three times faster. To avoid shakes and blurs during the shots, Hero6 Black is provided with an improved Image Stabilization. However, the stabilization is through digital means (EIS) rather than the optical one (OIS).
The device inherits a 12MP camera, which takes RAW or JPG still images with High Dynamic Range and vibrant colors. The camera also takes nifty shots during low lights. Provided with a rugged and waterproof finish, Hero6 Black performs well on underwater too. However, the underwater depth has been limited to 10m (33 feet).
Hero6 Black also features QuickStories feature. With the information collected from different sensors, GPS, and accelerometer, QuickStories determines the most exhilarating parts of the footages. The GoPro’s custom app is also capable of editing the captured footages into exciting videos.
