USB C to USB C transfer

I have the new macbook pro with only USB C ports. Am I able to directly connect a gopro camera via USB C to USB C cable instead of the cable issued with the camera? Would it transfer faster?

@btom - Yes, you can use a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect your GoPro to your computer - and yes, it should be a little faster to transfer.
