It's been eagerly awaited, but GoPro has now unveiled the latest in its Hero series of cameras, the Hero 6, replete with an all new custom GoPro designed processor. George Shaw gives us the lowdown on this and the other new product announcements from the company.

Today at a special event in San Francisco, GoPro announced the next generation Hero 6 action camera. With a brand new custom designed processor, this GoPro could be the most powerful yet. But it is more than just a “dot upgrade?” Maybe, but sometimes that sets you up for a better model down the road.

Specs of the GoPro Hero 6 reveal a modest uptick in capability, including recording 4K video at 60fps or, 120fps in 2.7K mode, and up to 240fps in 1080p. Through the use of machine learning, the GP1 processor analyses the video image coming through the sensor, then chooses the best image to take full advantage of the increased sensor performance. The Hero 6 offers twice the video frame rates, better dynamic range for low light image handling and improved detail, as well as upgraded the image stabilisation and a digital zoom option so that shooters can shoot wide in 4K, and then zoom in for a secondary camera angle. A first for GoPro.

GoPro's software Quik can automatically assemble “QuikStories” after downloading the video files from the camera to your mobile device at speeds that are three times faster than the pervious mode. It can then upload your story from your smartphone to youtube, Facebook and other social outlets.
