Just seen this, and wow they really have not updated the camera at all. Hero 6+ anyone?
4k60 fps basic stabilisation (probabaly hero5 quality) and only wide angle.
2.7k 120fps still no stabilisation
1080p 240fps still no stabilisation
Essentially it's the same camera as the Hero6 but with livestreaming.
4k60fps linear with hypersmooth stabilisation is the only thing that could have convinced me to buy this camera. As it stands there is literally no point in upgrading from the Hero6.

As far as upgrading from a Hero6, it doesn't look like there is anything, "Must Have" unless it's fulfilling a need, like with live streaming. Since I already think the Hero6 is a big improvement over the Hero5 and earlier models, I won't have any hesitancy in recommending the Hero7. Of course, as a fanboy, I'm most definitely getting the Hero7. 4K/60 surfing or mountain biking? Yes please and thank you!

Yes agree about the benefits of some of the added features. and I will have to sit down and see what will work best for my personal needs
As Cyberlink PowerDirector 17 just been released they offer as well excellent additions. , if owning the older version it is going to be thesame, is it worth the update t othe next level. And like any other product out there. For the older model owners it will be a big improvement, for you and I it is just the next step up on the Hero 6 to hero 7 and that is where we must decide to get one. works well, sell or hold and hand down the hero 6.
I'll watch theshow, see what tothers say and go from there. I most likely will get one so I can be up to date with the place I hang.

i'll be getting one as soon as Argos get them in stock anyway. I'm hoping the 7 is the same jump as the 6 was to the 5, it didn't seem much on paper but the whole feel of the interface etc made the 5 useless

Now, when it came to upgrading to the Hero6, I definitely felt it was worth it. As a fanboy, it frustrates me when people would recommend the Hero5 over the Hero6 or argue that other Hero cameras were just as good. I really feel a lot of people missed out thinking they were getting a similar camera and experience by saving a little money on the Hero5. Since the Hero5 was GoPro's #1 selling camera, there are plenty of people who should be upgrading to the Hero7.
