So, you have a GoPro Hero 5 and you’ve been looking at the Hero 6 but you are scratching your head because you don’t see any difference? Well, I can’t say that I see any differences – from the exterior – either. They’re that physically identical.
That’s where the similarities end though. The difference lies on the inside with the new GP1 processor — GoPro’s latest weapon in the action camera market. The processor has been custom designed by Socionext and is exclusive to GoPro. Their involvement in the development of the GP1 processor is significant for GoPro because it gives them more control over the image pipeline.
At the launch event, CEO Nick Woodman said, “We haven’t completely unlocked the performance of GP1 yet.”
Get the shot, then kick back as your footage moves to the GoPro app and transforms into an awesome video—automatically.
