GoPro's New Cameras Are a Big Leap Forward


Announced back in April, the Fusion clearly looks like a relation to GoPro's HERO cameras - including the HERO6 Black also announced today - but it has a far broader field of view. The camera now has 4k video at 60 frames per second (fps), 2.7k at 120 fps, and 1080 at 240 fps.

Other features on the HERO6 also include built-in Global Positioning System, an accelerometer and a gyroscope. It will be interesting to see if shareholders and consumers welcome the new product, as GoPro has had a bumpy ride since becoming a publicly traded company in 2014. The company's market cap is $1.50 billion. Charles J. Prober, Chief Operating Officer sold $274,098 worth of shares at an average price of $11.00 on September 11th.

Woodman made the announcement at the planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

Aside from being an accolade, users will find the high frame rate helpful whenever they want to slow down footage and show action happening frame-by-frame - this is especially true with the GoPro Hero6's ability to shoot at 1080p and 240fps. The Hero6 is available now for $499. But while the majority of GoPro's time was spent touting the merits of these new high-end devices, the company also gave some much-needed love to another one of its existing popular products: The GoPro Karma drone.

The GoPro Fusion's OverCapture is one way to get round this.

GoPro uses machine learning to create Quik Stories. It has stabilization built into the camera.

GoPro Fusion was sent out to select pilot testers at the end of summer 2017, to get feedback on features and performance from various 360-degree content creators. The camera is waterproof to 10m without a case, theres a built-in Global Positioning System and a 2” LCD screen too.

After months of teasing and sneak peaks, GoPro has finally spilled the bins on its revolutionary new 360-degree camera. GoPro says that the Hero 6 Black also comes with superior image stabilization and improved dynamic range for better videos and photos in low lighting conditions. The company has developed its own processor called GP1 that will power the Hero 6.

Using the companion GoPro App on iOS and Android, the videos can be directly shared with major social media with a faster offload speed of 5 GHz WiFi channels. The company claims double the performance. The new feature will automatically import photos and video into the GoPro app, automatically edit the footage together, and in turn produce an easily sharable moment. Just like they sound, the new settings will use Global Positioning System to allow the Karma drone either automatically follow the Karma Controller and continuously frame the user in the shot, or to watch the controller while hovering in place. Six equities research analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, sixteen have assigned a hold rating and two have issued a buy rating to the company.
