Re: Meet HERO6 Black + QuikStories in 4K

Purchased my Hero6 today. Got it updated and did some filming at my Son's football game. We got there early and stayed until the sun set so I got to try it out in a variety of lighting.

By far this is the best GoPro ever.

I wasn't sure if this camera would be a big enough upgrade to the Hero5 Black. It's a HUGE upgrade. Everything is better with the Hero6 and it's noticeable right away. Not only are you getting double the frame rates with 4K/60 and 1080/240, but everything just looks so much better! Stability is amazing and the color is outstanding. The GoPro color is vibrant and beautiful. If you color grade in post like I do, and prefer the flat profile, the Hero6 gives you so much more to work with compared to other similar cameras including the Hero5.
GoPro smartly got rid of the narrow and medium fov and instead added the ability to ZOOM. Essentially it's the same as using these modes but you have much more flexibility in how close or far you want the sensor to crop, plus you can see exactly what the effect will be as you adjust the zoom/fov.
Voice activation to turn on the camera and start recording is a big plus (firmware update is required and available now with the GoPro app) along with all of the usual voice activations found in the Hero5 cameras.
All of the features of the Hero5 are also found on the Hero6. Waterproof, LCD back screen, GPS, RAW photo, manual ISO and shutter, stereo and wind resistance plus Protune audio, auto cloud updating, Quik Story, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity, and selective spot metering/ light adjustment. The difference is, Hero6 does all of these things better. A lot better.
The touch screen is more responsive. ISO can be set to max 100 with the shutter on auto. Wi-Fi connection and transfer is significantly faster. Audio is clear and more accurate. Light balance and low light are much better. If you don't have the ability to edit RAW photos the new HDR gives rich blacks and brighter whites than the Hero5 Black WDR.
If you are thinking about getting an action cam that can also be used as an everyday shooter, this is the camera to get. If you are on the fence about upgrading from your Hero5, it's worth it. If you are still using a Hero4 or even a Hero3+, now is the time to upgrade, you truly don't know what you're missing and won't regret getting this camera.
In short, I am impressed!

in was inevitable that'd i'd pick one up, having trouble connecting to my phone. Other than that very impressed, the image stabilization works so much better than on the 5

Re: Meet HERO6 Black + QuikStories in 4K

Here is a good article by someone who knows GoPro cameras and the features of the Hero6. http://abekislevitz.com/gopro-hero6-black/

I find it's best to get information from informed individuals and preferably those that have first hand experience.
