Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black

You think the 5 will get any upgrades? I know its a brand new chip, but I wanna say the 4 got an update when the five came out. I just want a liner mode in 4k and i would like to see the 60fsp

@acdcbcNow this might be a dumb question but when it is 4k and you have to downscale it to 1080p are you really getting a difference in video quality? Right now with the hero 5 i only shoot 1080

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black

The LINEAR mode in the Hero6 is for 2.7K max resolution. So still the same as in the Hero5 and Hero4.

 

It's not possible to upgrade the Hero5 to 4K60.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black

Well, all the video modes have been downscaled from the sensor resolution. For the Hero6 the downscaling could be slightly better. Maybe. personally I still use the Hero4 black and silver. For HD it's all that you need...

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black

I think ever since Hero HD, 1080 has been an option.

That being said, A Hero5 smokes a Hero HD when it comes to 1080 video quality.

 

So I'd be curious to see if there are any video-quality improvements asside from the faster frame-rate at 4K. If GoPro Hero6 shoots with a higher bit-rate, then chances are there will be a noticeable video quality improvement across all video-resolutions.

 

I'm curious if there is a video stabilization option when filming in 4K.

Remember that the Hero 3, Hero 3+, Hero 4 and Hero 5 all uses the same imaging sensor from Sony! So any differences is due to back end image processing only. These Gopros have all had different variations of processors from Ambarella. (There was a slight lens change from 3 to 3+ but it was marginal. Mostly related to near/far field focus. Seems like the new lens is on 3+, 4 and 5.)

For Hero6 video stabilization reportedly works with 4K30, but not with 4K60.

There has ben stated by Woodman that the color science has been tweaked this time around so the picture might have different "feel" to it.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black

Both the Hero6 unboxing videos have now disappeared from YouTube. Seems like GoPro has implemented a massive damage control in the latest 24 hrs. Wonder what they received to take the videos down. ;-)
