GoPro Hero 6 review: Slow-mo, stabilization and subtle refinements

 

The Hero 6 is the first camera from GoPro to feature the company's custom GP1 image processor, and it looks like a successful debut. Video framerates have been doubled almost across the board, making the Hero 6 the slow-mo lovers dream. Better image...

Improved stabilization ; Large selection of slow-mo options ; Greater manual control of exposure ; Upgraded image processor

Pricier than the Hero 5 at launch ; No update to the design ; File compatibility issues on slow-mo videos

The slow motion is insane, as is the dynamic range.

GoPro Hero6 Black review: is more power everything?

 

Higher frame rates and 5Ghz Wi-Fi ensure more options and faster uploads. Is that enough?

Higher frame rates ; Still waterproof to 10 metres without a case ; 5GHz Wi-Fi for faster transfers

Expensive ; HEVC codec not compatible on all devices ; Low light shots still suffer

GoPro Hero 8 Black review

 

The Hero 8 Black update improves stability, optimizes software and adds professional Media Mods to the lineup. But does it do enough to justify its price tag?

Best-in-class digital stabilization Time-saving Capture Presets Unique time-lapse modes New built-in mount Improved microphone New Media Mods

Sub-smartphone picture quality Poor low-light performance

The Hero 8 Black is the best GoPro yet, but without its Mod accessories (available for pre-order in December 2019) it's only a minor update on its predecessor. The more streamlined design, new microphone and improved app are all big bonuses, while pros...

GoPro Hero6 Black

 

This camera is very nice and versatile. Nice resolution if you need it and easy to use. Battery life is rubbish though. Remember to have it on charge whenever it's not being used

Easy to upload

 

I love this GoPro, so easy to use and upload footage. I can shoot video, connect to my phone with the app, edit the footage and upload it. I never knew how much i needed this in my life! This is the best GoPro yet and can even shoot 4K
