GoPro Hero6 100mbps bitrate H264 and H265 all resolutions and frame rates firmware update request

I have been using the GoPro Hero6 for almost a year since it came out. I’m a videographer and have all the camera equipment one could need, but the Hero6 is my favorite family camera during vacations. It’s the crowning achievement of a tough little camera! It’s really awesome, but I have had a love hate relationship with it.  The ease of use is outstanding. The best camera by far when it comes to handling. It’s a joy to operate. It has a great touch screen.  Menus are super easy to navigate. It’s the gold standard for durable waterproof action cameras. The image stabilization is the best I have ever seen. It is so, so good!

 

My only serious complaint is with the decent, but not great image quality. I agree with some other posters that wish the highest bitrate option be at least 100mbps. “Yi 4k+ can shoot up to 135mbps bitrate and it honestly looks much better and more detailed than Hero6’s best video”.   I would very much like to get a Hero6 firmware update adding the option of 100mbps bitrate H264 and H265 for all resolutions and frame rates.

 

After a year, the GoPro Hero6 black is still on the top of the action camera food chain with awesome stabilization, fantastic ease of use and incredible durability.  It’s a great little camera that I use more than any of my other cameras. Please improve the max video quality of the Hero6 to the best it can be!  Please give us 100mbps bitrate H264 and/or H265 for all resolutions and frame rates. Thank you!
