Yesterday was in the name of the GoPro company, which showed off their new GoPro Hero 6 black camera. Compared to the previous generation, the camera got much better hardware while retaining the same look.

The best features of the last generation remain, which means there’s GPS, the camera is waterproof up to 10 meters without a case as well as shock resistant. The biggest changes are however hidden under the hood, where the new GP1 processor can be found. This procesor has been in development for almost three years exclusively for GoPro and boasts twice the performance when compared the one found in GoPro Hero 5.

Probably the most important innovation is that the camera can now handle 4K video recording at 60 frames per second. That means it’s now at the same level as the YI 4K+ camera. If 4K is not your thing yet, you can enjoy its FullHD/240fps recording capabilities – a feature no other action cam offers yet.
