All of these higher frame rates arrive thanks to GoPro's new custom-made GPI image processor that also improves image quality with enhanced video stabilization, a wider dynamic range, better low-light performance and a new digital zoom feature.
It's a big day for GoPro as they have announced two new camera products, hoping to turn the tide and get their company back on the track they were on a few years ago. Woodman also introduced the new Hero 6 camera, the latest in GoPro's core line of action cameras, and focused on the camera's ability to quickly upload footage to a smartphone. It has Global Positioning System, a 2-inch LCD touchscreen on the back, voice controls, and some neat instant-offloading and instant-editing features to help with the inevitable backlog of footage.
In a blazing fast press event, an exceedingly enthused Nick Woodman, CEO of GoPro, unveiled a host of new cameras and technologies today.
There are also a bunch of mount updates, while the QuikStories mobile app is created to make it easy to share short videos of your adventures. It has Global Positioning System, wifi, Bluetooth, and voice commands, as well as a range of visual-effect functions.
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).
Trump intends to sign executive order on health care next week
The executive order appears to let virtually any group of people link together as a "health association" for insurance purposes. Trump was harsher toward other senators than he was with Paul, who argued that the bill didn't go far enough, however.
We've been hearing a lot about GoPro's Fusion 360 VR camera.
IBD'S TAKE:GoPro's news was overshadowed Thursday by the IPO of another consumer electronics firm: Roku. It also advances GoPro's computer vision and machine learning capabilities, allowing the Hero6 to analyze visual scenes and sensor data for better QuikStories. Coming this November, the GoPro Fusion uses a pair of lenses to record 5.2K video at up to 30 frames per second and it can stabilize its footage using an array of accelerometers and gyroscopes. It's waterproof to 16 feet (5m) and offers advanced stabilization; 360-degree audio; and a bunch of different modes, including time-lapse video and photo, night lapse, and burst. That's what you can capture using GoPro Fusion.
GoPro's OverCapture feature will enable users to recapture and share their footage in a conventional fixed perspective video.
The Karma drone is Hero6 Black-compatible and features two new auto-shot paths: Follow and Watch. "Watch" is a simpler follow mode where the drone simply hovers in place and rotates to keep the Karma Controller in frame.
Finally, GoPro also today announced a new pocket-sized extension pole and tripod called Shorty; an updated floating handgrip with a quick-release mounting feature called The Handler; and the Bike Mount + Floaty, which the company said is "ideal" for point-of-view shots.
