It was announced by GoPro today alongside the new HERO6 Black camera at the company's launch event in San Francisco.
Powered by GoPro's custom-designed GP1 processor, the Hero6 is capable of capturing 4K, 60 frames per second and 1080p240 video.
The GoPro Hero 6 is now available and cost $499. The 6 will also shoot regular HD 1080p video at 240 frames-per-second (twice that of the 5), meaning your powder day footage will look even dreamier when slowed down. This is the first time GoPro has used its own custom processor, which is sourced from Japan-based Socionext. Perhaps one of the more important specs is the company says its compatible with most GoPro mounts.
Overcapture, which records more than the footage necessary for the 360 scene and flattens it so you can use any section independently, reconstructed in software as if you were cutting a multicam shot (in a free update to the GoPro app, available 2018). Like the Hero5 before it, it has voice commands, a tiny touchscreen, wifi data transfer to smartphones, digital image stabilization, and waterproofing.
It's that improvement that we're most excited about at Outside. GoPro has partnered with several organizations, including Fox Sports, USA Today, Getty Images and Accuweather, to test out broadcasting with the spherical camera in a pilot program. The former follows you - or whoever is holding the drone controller - around to capture footage.
GoPro's consumer 360 degree camera relies on two lenses to shoot video at up to 5.2K and 30 frames per second.
That brings us to the Fusion.
In addition to the hardware launches, Woodman also announced a firmware update to the Karma Drone that gives it "Follow" and "Watch" functions.
GoPro's OverCapture feature will enable users to recapture and share their footage in a conventional fixed perspective video. The Follow path trails the Karma Controller, framing you in the shot while the new Watch auto-shot path will keep the Controller (and you) in frame while the drone hovers in place.
