GoPro Hero 6 can be in your hands now for $499

GoPro Fusion official Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro's new Hero5 Black is the company's first flagship camera in two years.

Teased since CES in 2016, the Fusion builds upon the success of their existing cameras and has a few minor changes from the existing 360 camera lineup on the market.

Besides the 5.2K capture quality, the Fusion will also include a feature called Overcapture. But even more interesting than that, GoPro announced Fusion, a waterproof, mountable 5.2K spherical camera.

GoPro says the Fusion is waterproof, has the same voice controls as other GoPro cameras, and boasts impressive video stabilisation.

IBD'S TAKE:GoPro's news was overshadowed Thursday by the IPO of another consumer electronics firm: Roku. The GoPro app's OverCapture feature can recapture and share your spherical shot as a traditional fixed perspective video. The feature will also allow you to make it look like a pro videographer is traveling behind/around the subject when used as a stationary camera. "Fusion captures everything around you so you'll never miss the shot".

With two wide angle lenses, one of either side of the device that record video at the same time, the GoPro Fusion creates a sphere of video: ideal to watch in VR.

Shorty - The ultimate pocket-able extension pole and tripod, ideal for any activity.

Keep in mind that the GoPro Karma Drone has no obstacle detection capabilities, so you'll want to be mindful of exactly where the drone is following you to. It will also feature the more standard effects such as tiny planet and slow-mo.

GoPro hasn't revealed the release date or price for its first VR camera, but we do know that the GoPro Fusion will cost $699 (nothing yet on United Kingdom or European pricing). The new feature will automatically import photos and video into the GoPro app, automatically edit the footage together, and in turn produce an easily sharable moment. Powered by a new processor, the Hero 6 can record 4K footage at 60 frames per second.

A new bundle is available for $1,200 that includes a Hero6 camera. QuikStories will be made available in a free update in 2018.

The Hero 6 Black is packed for the first time with a custom processor created specifically for GoPro.
