GoPro's finally revealed how much its Fusion 360-degree camera will cost

GoPro has announced its latest action camera, dubbed the HERO6 Black. Among its features is the ability to capture spherical video 5.2K at 30 fps and at 3K at 60 fps. The Hero 6 also allows you to shoot super-slo-mo videos at 1080p and 240fps. Apple's iPhone 8 is officially the first smartphone that's capable of doing the same thing. The GP1 should improve image quality, low-light performance, dynamic range, and, perhaps most important, make the internal electronic image stabilization significantly better. "It's never been easier to live it, then share it... using GoPro".

Mashable reports that the camera now supports Quik Stories which automatically uploads your footage into the cloud and creates short videos.

Already available to purchase, it displays a price of 569,99 euros on the official site of GoPro.

"We've finally been able to make a GoPro without compromises". Instead of sourcing chips from Ambarella, GoPro has developed its own chip.

"I think what's most exciting about GP1 is we've yet to tap its full potential".

The Handler - An updated floating handgrip with a quick-release mounting feature. This is quite competitive as it comes out to be the same as the launch price of the GoPro Hero 5 Black (though you may find Hero 5 Black discounted now on Amazon).

The GoPro Fusion VR camera lets you recapture your spherical video

The waterproof Hero6 will use GoPro's custom-designed processor and offers digital zoom, greater image stabilisation and other improved features.

It also supports voice control in 10 languages and comes with GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

GoPro Fusion is clearly aimed directly at other affordable 360VR platforms such as the Insta 360 ONE.

The company has also proposed a solution to the difficulty of editing 360-degree video down to standard size with a feature called OverCapture, which helps you recapture the footage into a fixed perspective video. Samsungs Gear 360 is now in its second edition (2017 Edition) and captures 360 degree images at 15MP (5,472 x 2,736 pixels) resolution and FullHD videos at 60fps. It lets you capture all angles, and it stitches them into a single 360-degree image. This means when you're in the moment you won't have to worry as much about framing your shot as you know you can correct this later. The feature will be available through the GoPro app for iOS and Android in early 2018.

GoPro also today launched Fusion-a waterproof, mountable 5.2K spherical camera it's been testing since April-plus new mounts and accessories, and new Follow and Watch modes for its Karma drone.

The new and more powerful chip also allows for the most advanced video stability to have ever been achieved on any GoPro so far. GoPro did not specifically mention which products will be unveiled at the event, but the Hero 6 Black is expected to be the star of the show.
