Little girl owes the GoPro HERO 5 and we are still very excited about the GoPro latest announcement of the GoPro HERO 6 and GoPro Fusion, a 360 camera that we would like to have for quite some time.

There are various action cameras similar to GoPro HERO 5 and we tried the Xiaoyi 4k last year. In the end, we bought the HERO 5 for better color and video quality, consistent performance (there is no need to force-restart the action camera) and the underwater waterproof capability, which reduces the need for underwater housing.

GoPro HERO 6

One thing that is still missing in our day-to-day vlogging and underwater camera is the video gimbal-like stabilization. Very often, I need to some time in post-processing to reduce video shakiness with our HERO 5.

With the new custom-designed GP1 processor, HERO6 achieves an entirely new level of performance including stunning 4K60 and 1080p240 video and the most advanced digital video stabilization ever achieved in a GoPro.

Rugged and waterproofed, HERO6 Black and the GoPro app automatically transform your adventures into cinematic videos that you can instantly share it on social media via the QuikStories feature. HERO6 also has dramatically improved dynamic range and low-light performance to really make things pop, and an added digital zoom just to get crazy. HERO6 Black is now available on GoPro.com at S$750.

GoPro Fusion 360 Camera

In our camera kit, one thing that is still missing is a 360 camera.

With its ability to capture immersive 5.2K spherical content, GoPro Fusion marks the beginning of a new creative era. Fusion captures everything around you so you’ll never miss the shot, and gimbal-like stabilization makes it all shockingly smooth. Use the GoPro App to playback and share your footage as VR content or use the app’s OverCapture feature to recapture and share your spherical shot as a traditional fixed perspective video.

The OverCapture mobile experience will be part of a new version of the GoPro App available for iOS and Android in early 2018. Create stunning edits using the bundled Fusion Studio desktop software available when the product ships. GoPro Fusion is coming soon to Singapore GoPro.com at S$1,050.

Vlogging

Similar to our Phantom 4, we can definitely see how the new GoPro HERO 6 and Fusion improve our video storytelling by providing a different perspective and re-capture the moments to the video perspective we want in just one camera.

Final Thoughts

GoPro HERO 5 already gave us the capability we need to go underwater and the physical size we are most comfortable with. With QuikStories, OverCapture and 5.2k 360 spherical camera, our travel vlogging experience will be so much easier and convenient.
