Engadget Review

The Hero 6 is the first camera from GoPro to feature the company's custom GP1 image processor, and it looks like a successful debut. Video framerates have been doubled almost across the board, making the Hero 6 the slow-mo lovers dream. Better image stabilization and manual exposure settings mean the camera has tools for more demanding users. At $499, it's not cheap, but it's a worthy upgrade for anyone looking to maximize their creative options from the rugged little camera.
