    GoPro Hero 6 Black Review - Best Action Camera 2019. To be honest, we were expecting the new GoPro action camera to only make minor upgrades over the Hero 5 Black but we were pleasantly surprised. It’s a big upgrade over the Hero5. In our opinion, it is the best GoPro camera yet. The Hero 6 features stunning 4K footage up to 60fps with better codec and compression. It has a huge ecosystem of compatible accessories and mounts. The new GoPro also features a supper rugged design and is water resistant down to 10 meters. The image quality for videos and photos has been vastly improved over prior GoPro models. It also has superb image stabilization. The Hero 6 also sports a faster processor making this camera super quick and easy to use. On the downside, it’s expensive and battery life is short when shooting 4K. Also, there’s still plenty of roadblocks when sharing media. Overall though, there’s a lot to like about this camera. Expect it to make the list for Best Action Camera 4K and Best Action Camera Waterproof. Hoe you enjoyed this GoPro Hero6 Black Review.

    Hello back when this go pro hero 6 black brand new off of eBay for $130.00 then I hadn’t used it for over a year. So I finally opened the box and found out the screen was separated from the frame so I contacted go pro tech support and they sent me a return shipping label and they sent me a brand new go pro hero 6 black and I still haven’t use this action camera for anything as of yet two years later wow I just can’t find the inspiration for using this little ass camera.

    I purchased the GoPro hero 6 black brand new from Beay a month after it was released for the low low price of $165.00 and that was unheard of back then and now I am sorry I purchased it because I’ve never used it for anything and I also picked up a the external mic from Rode and that GoPro adapter from $150.00 brand together all from eBay

    I been looking for a camera to mount on my motorcycle helmet. I found the go pro HERO6 BLACK on Amazon for $279.99. The go pro HERO6 Black and the Sena 10c Pro are the two cameras I am looking at. I am to the point where I just might give up stabilization and hi-definition for the all inclusive Bluetooth Headset & Camera Sena 10c Pro provides.

  • Igor Bajic

    Looks like a very cool camera. is there a housing that can take it deeper down then 10m?

    • Dwaine Fissenden
      Dwaine Fissenden Year ago

      Igor Bajic yes there is but to have 10m without housing is brilliant I bought mine so I don't have to take my phone on the beach and sea. Then I know my phone is safe even though my phone is waterproof still don't like risking it lol

    Have you ever considered a 360 camera for running/cycling such as the Insta360 one? The stabilisation on these units totally blows the hero 6 away. It's maybe not perfect but there are instances where a 360 camera would be far more convenient than the hero 6.

    Jeff, I am thinking of getting a new camera for my products reviews. Would this be a good camera to go with knowing I can still use it outdoors? I do have a bluetooth mic, so I got the sound covered. Thanks.

    The Go Pro Hero 6 doesn't cease to amaze every time I watch a video on it, very expensive for the price I can get a cheap entry level mirror less camera for. But it's still less than what a flagship smartphone is going for, I think it's definitely worth investing in if it's something I would keep for the next 4-5 years.

    Question: I have a hero 4, great camera, but stabilization could be better. I will never use 4k, so is it worth it to buy the Hero 6 or 5. Thanks.

  • Adam McCammack

    Would you buy the Karma package with the Hero 6 if you already have the Hero 5?

  • Angry 8
    Angry 8 Year ago +2

    Auto rotation doesn’t work and my videos are being recorded upside down, 4K recording is very grainy, RU-clip doesn’t even support anything over 60fps. And GoPro tech support is pretty useless not to mention the language barrier and they can’t even understand your issue to resolve any issues.

    can apple compressor convert hevc to to h.264? Cause when I shot in 4060fps on my hero 6 it stutters on my macbook and wont open in fcpx. I also tried in Premiere Pro and it still stutters.

    Up to couple days ago I was really close to buy this camera (to replace my 3+black or to make it as an addon at least), exciting buy this kind of VLOGs (or mcbesma kind of etc), where "everything is super exciting with GP6. But later I've reviewed some alternative vlog minds about this camera, for example iphonedo's one, and I saddenly foud a number of issues this camera has comparing with another ones taking in account this big price.. for example, if you look that "perfect" stab careful, you could discover some constant shear of whole the scene caused camera probably loosing 1-2 frames during the filming.. it even recognizable in your vlog test samples; also - a lot of reporting about crash during the filming and rebooting requirement and that movie you captured during the crash becomes just unavailable to playback at all - thats is looks extremely horrible for the $500 product with a such fabulous adversmebts; some vlogs reported - there still be pretty noisy in lowlight especially during the night comparing with Sony at least; also people straggling about various mechanical inconveniences like battery removal/downloading, batt hatch cover hard closing etc.. so, all of these ones I found from several vlogs and reviews and now I completely lost- should I try to trust some optimistics and buy it, or I still would not trust to another over-promised expensive product and would better to spend a half of this price to upgrade my 3+ accessories garage with an extra bunch of useful addons.. I mean, somehow GP6 looks similar to an iPhone comparing with android competitors (comparing with other action cam with similar specs): gp6 looks pretty convenient and friendly to use, it is very ergonomic and it really heat up the attraction to buy that.. same like iPhone, it promis like "all you need in one product and all operating by simple actions", same like iPhone it says "we are absolutely the best at all and revolutionary", same like an iPhone it concidered as the most expensive one.. but in the fact you find out some issues caused by draft solutions pushed on the market fast to get the money profit, polished by nice shiny adversments (very especially in example of gp5), when competitors can give some more advanced or reliable results for less money (like x3000 stabilization or lowlight sharpness).. and then you ask yourself: should you really give-up for this overpromissing marketing stuff for $500 or you better to realize you have something slightly less advanced from the old school but still good capturing and cheaper 3-4 times... I'm really lost.. but in the end of the day, I wonder why you not mentioned all issues stuff for this camera which are well known nowadays already. Thanx!

    My quick question: I was considewring the Hero5 and then purchasing the Karma Grip. In your opinion does the new hero 6 with internal stabilization tech make the same pitcure as the hero 5 with the karma? In other I still need to purchase the karma grip or is the 6 good enough??
