What about all that issues? (Hero 6)

Hi guys! 2 days left to my african trip and I don't know what to do. I have GoPro 3+ Black but I want to upgrade to Hero 6. I read a lot of complains about Hero 6 issues. But some of them are from November/December and maybe GoPro updates fixed all that issues. What do you think about Hero 6 now in March 2018? Is it worth the money? Is it issue free?
Ps. I'm thinking seriusly about filmmaking - my main camera is Canon 5D Mk IV and I want Hero 6 mostly for underwater adventures to keep quality of my videos.

Hi Michaello I have the same question and the same camera that you own JUST GET IT for VIDEO is super AWESOME if you know how to use your DSLR and the editing software will make it even better, than the GOPRO HERO 6 Black would be no problem is pretty much the same for VIDEO recording but with 4K Res.

Re: What about all that issues? (Hero 6)

i use my Hero 6 Black daily as a dashcam, & it works fine. Yes it had major issues with the intial firmware, but all have been resolved now. You do still see people complain about little stuff like stabilization not working as well as it did, but nothing that will stop you using the great camera that it is
