GoPro release 5.2k 360-degree camera

GoPro Hero 6

“GoPro Fusion marks the beginning of a new creative era”

GoPro have today taken an impressive leap into the VR 360-degree camera market with their latest release, Fusion. Unveiled at the company’s launch event in San Francisco today, alongside the new GoPro Hero6, the 5.2k resolution 360-degree camera aims to accelerate 360-degree video into the mainstream.

Standout new features include “shockingly smooth” stabilisation – so good that it eliminates the need for a gimble – and the ability to capture spherical images at 18MP.

Also included will be the new Fusion Studio software designed for desktop computers to bolster the 360-degree editing process, which will include the new OverCapture feature.

As well as the Fusion, the new GoPro Hero6 was introduced to the world featuring a custom designed new GP1 chip – the first of its kind from the action camera experts – that promises 2x the performance of the previous Hero5 camera. Resulting in improved video recording of 4k/60fps, slow motion capture at 1080/240fps, and better low-light capabilities and stabilisation.

Like its predecessor, the Hero6 is waterproof WITHOUT A CASE – the best feature an action camera can have, in our opinion – down to a depth of 10m/33ft.

Other improvements to the Hero6 include 3x faster offloading speeds and a new digital zoom feature.
