Suggestions to the Gopro team for the new Hero 6.

I do it this way because it's very difficult to contact you by chat ( always closed when I'm done working), or sending you an email ( because I cannot find it anymore)

 

Now About the new Hero 6.

I did some compare tests between the 5 and the 6.

One conclusion: the 6 is a much better performing camera then all camera's before. 

- image is a lot sharper

- when shooting on 100fps, the image is great compared with the 120fps on the hero 5

- the low light performance is better ( just a little bit more nois on the image)

- the best upgrade is the sound, with the hero 5 there was a lot of noise on the sound, with the hero 6 you don't have that at all. The "chopper" sound that you had with all previous camer's when the wifi was turned on, is completely gone ( the chopper sound is also on the 5, but you don't hear that well due to the high noise)

- 4K 50fps is awsome

- 1080P 200fps is ok when used on a sunny day, else the image quality is not always what it should be.

- the stabilisation is a hugh difference ( one word, awsome)

 

BUT, there are a few things that I would like to see in a firmware update.

- the image color ( is great and gives a cinematic view) is a lot different compared with the hero 4 or 5. When shooting one shot from 2 angles with a hero 5 and a hero 6, you will have a different image color which you will see after editing --> import an option  in the hero 6 to set the camera on the hero 5 color.

- why did you delete all other frame rates which where available on the hero 5 ( 90fps,80fps,....)

- on the hero 5, you had 120fps, on the hero 6 it's 100fps. why? 120fps can be slow down approx 5 times, 100fps only 4 times. 200fps on the hero 6 does not  always give the expected quality like I already said before.

- same for the field of views ( narrow is gone)

- When  changing settings with the buttons ( when the camera is in a housing) can only be done by  the small front displey, in the dark, you cannot see it, Is it possible to put it on the back screen ( like it is on the hero4 silver) ( same update needed for the hero 5)

 

 

Overall I love this camera ( hope it keeps working :-) )

120 is there, 240 is there - you need to change the video format to NTCS.

For a narrow view, select wide and use the zoom slider on the right to zoom in to a narrower field of view.  Also works in suberview.  Doesnt work at 4k.

Re: Suggestions to the Gopro team for the new Hero 6.

Using the slider is not possible when it's used in a housing ( example for divers)

Also, it's an action cam, the slider is nice, but when using it in action, you need quik settings.

I live in Belgium and for europe the standard is PAL. Before in PAL it was 120fps, now in PAL 100 fps.

Re: Suggestions to the Gopro team for the new Hero 6.

I'm in the UK which is PAL as well.  PAL and SECAM are used in areas with 50hz mains frequency and therefore PAL framerates are based on divisions or multibles of that - 25/50/100/200fps. 

 

NTCS is used in areas using 60hz mains and NTCS framerates are based on divisions or miltiples of this - 30/60/120/240 fps

 

PAL/SECAM and NTCS were originally developed for analogue transmition of video and the standards included alot more differences than just framerates, however in general the framerates remain divided into these 2 areas even though in digital video the divisions aren't really needed anymore as the codecs are the same no matter which is chosen.  Selecting the framerate for the area you're videoing in helps to remove the flicker from flourecent lights when videoing indoors.
