Hero 6 Bitrate

[ Edited ]

Hey I am new to Go Pro and so far i love it.

However, someone mentioned that the bitrate  on the Go Pro Hero 6 tops at 60-78Megabits per second. My question is with the new GP1 processor could a higher bitrate be implemneted in the future or will we have to wait for the next generation.

 

Thank you.

Re: Hero 6 Bitrate

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this as an option. With a 3rd party app my phone can record at 100mbps and it looks fantastic. Also the Yi 4k+ can shoot up to 135 fps and it honestly looks much better and more detailed than gopro's 60mbps. GoPro... Please make this an option. You can put this in protune settings or whatever but this is something that would be extremely helpful. I will say the reason I got the Hero 6 over the Yi 4k+ is the 4k 30fps buttery smooth stabilization. That is what saved gopro for me. Id like to see at minimum 100mbps H264. Maybe an option to encode H265 at the same bitrate for 4k 30fps which would also be an improvement.
