GoPro hopes to turn its fortunes around with new Hero6 action camera

GoPro Hero 6 Black shoots 4K video at 60 fps and is on sale today

The Fusion can capture 360-degree footage at 5.2K resolution and 30fps or 3K resolution and 60fps.

GoPro's drone, unveiled in the summer of 2016, recalled in the fall, and re-released this spring, received mixed reviews and has since been surpassed technologically by some of its competitors.

Transferring video from the camera shouldn't take almost as long, either, thanks to new 5G Wi-Fi support (GoPro says users can expect 3X offload speeds). GoPro has suffered in the last two holiday shopping seasons, after Woodman admitted to a poor pricing decision on the Hero 4 in 2015 and the company faced production issues with new products past year.

GoPro is officially entering the world of virtual reality and 360-degree footage with the GoPro Fusion. The Fusion works with the GoPro app and the camera is waterproof up to 16 feet. Not everyone wants to strap a VR headset on to watch it back and then you're left swiping and panning across your screen to look around. "Fusion captures everything around you so you'll never miss the shot". For now it looks like Overcapture edits will be done through the GoPro app; however, they will be launching the Fusion Studio that will connect in with After Effects and Adobe Premiere.

Besides the 5.2K capture quality, the Fusion will also include a feature called Overcapture. While most VR cameras include some odd spots of a tripod or extension pole, Angel View is created to hide the included grip.

You can check out all of the new products recently launched from GoPro.

The Fusion is available now for pre-order, priced at US$699.99, and is expected to begin shipping in November. It will also include the Fusion Grip, which is a tripod/selfie stick.

In an event in San Francisco, GoPro's showed off Hero6, which shoots 4K resolution footage at 60 frames per second, the sharpest and smoothest resolution by any GoPro product.

GoPro announced it lost $30 million during its earnings call in August but it was seen as a sign of improvement. QuikStories will be made available in a free update in 2018.

Also announced today, the Hero 6 is GoPro's first camera to use the company's own processor, called the GP1.
