GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) held a launch event this week and surprised everyone with the debut of two new cameras, the Hero 6 Black and the Fusion 360.

Another announcement made by GoPro the latest generation of its core action camera- Hero6 Black will have custom processor features. The new camera went on sale on the launch day itself.

Hero6 is available now at retailers worldwide and GoPro.com for $499. It has been priced at AUD750 in Australia and £500 in the UK. Ameriprise Financial Inc. boosted its position in shares of GoPro by 1,869.6% in the third quarter. However, it's far more than just an incremental update. And it'll drum up some new excitement for GoPro. The camera is waterproof to 10m without a case, theres a built-in Global Positioning System and a 2” LCD screen too. Aside from the 4K recording capability, action cam enthusiasts will be glad to hear that the HERO6 Black can also do 1080p at 240fps. (High-end editing software uses a very similar process.) The resulting footage should look similar to what you'd get if you strapped an older GoPro to their stabilized Karma grip. It's still got that rugged rubberised body, it's still waterproof up to 10m in depth and it still features a touch screen. Through the GoPro app, users will be able to control the camera, as well as preview and playback shots.

Besides frame rate, the new Hero6 Black also has faster Wi-Fi, now working on the 5GHz bands to speed up transfers. It makes colors more vibrant and saturated, while offering an enhanced dynamic range. The new chip also promises to offer some great shots during low light situations. The Hero 6 comes with an improved internal stabilization technology that eliminates the shakes and vibrations.

One of the major differences between the Hero 6 and Hero 5 is the processor. Hand-free mode makes it possible to start recording via simple voice commands. It consumes only 5-10% battery in eight hours. It means you can see your footage in the GoPro app on your smartphone faster than ever before. Along with this the Quik Stories integration is another added advantage. It automatically uploads your videos into the cloud and transforms them into an awesome short and shareable video. That's what you can capture using GoPro Fusion. Users will pick and choose which angle they want from any moment of the recorded footage. The chip has also been created to support optimum performance on computer vision and AI processing.

The GoPro Fusion is waterproof up to 16 feet, supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and supports 10 languages for voice control.

The Fusion will be available in November and cost $699, but preorders are now open. However, you can pre-order the camera right away from GoPro's website.

The GoPro Fusion is a new 360° camera that captures an immersive experience in 5.2K resolution at 30fps.

For photos, the camera shoots 18-megapixel stills and supports continuous shooting at up to 30 fps.

And again, GoPro Karma owners can unlock all these new features by performing an easy firmware update on their drone.

The Watch and Follow modes seem simple enough. Despite fierce competition from DJI, the Karma sales have been above expectations. The petite Session camera was not updated.
