Easy Come, Easy GoPro.

Sharing your active life has never been easier.

How's this for easy: You can give the GoPro HERO6 Black 4K Ultra HD Waterproof Camera a voice command to start recording and stop recording your video and then automatically send your footage to your phone where the Quik app will transform it into an epic edited video with music and effects that can be posted right to Instagram or Facebook. The hard part is convincing yourself that freediving with great white sharks actually makes sense.

Sporting the all-new GP1 chip, which has been optimized for GoPro capture, next-level video stabilization and a whopping two times the performance of the HERO5 Black, this latest generation camera makes it, dare we say, easy as pie to shoot incredible videos and then create awe-inspiring QuikStories on your phone. Geting beautiful results may be straightforward, but by no means is the HERO6 Black stripped down to make it simple to operate. In fact, this GoPro camera has so many features, we've included a handy list of Key Features directly below in case you either aren't interested in how each of them will benefit you or you're an early adopter and only want to read the condensed version so you can place your order before our shipping deadline (4:00 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday in order to ship the same day if your item is in stock. Some exclusions apply).

QuikStories Enabled

The HERO6 Black comes ready to work seamlessly with the GoPro and Quik mobile apps so you can create a QuikStory, control your GoPro and share your shots on the spot with your phone. With the free GoPro mobile app you can control your HERO6 Black and frame shots with live preview, then view and share the photos and videos you've captured. The free Quik video editing mobile app features storytelling tools and a large library of soundtracks. Quik analyzes your video clips to find the best moments (or you can choose your own), adds transitions and effects and then syncs everything to the beat of the music. You can also manually customize your story with text, filters, music and more. Free download on the AppStore or Google Play.

Two Times the Performance

With 4K60 and 1080p240 video, the HERO6 Black delivers 2x the performance compared to the HERO5 Black. If you haven't experienced the difference 4K video makes in giving the impression that the viewer is the one barreling down that single track dodging trees, jumping rocks and rocketing past rattlesnakes, bears and startled onlookers, you must not have watched any adventure films made in the past few years. Cinema-quality super slow motion and ultra high resolution—even in low-light conditions—are right at your fingertips. In addition to stunning 4K60, you also have the option to record up to 2.7K120, 1440p60, 1080p240 and 720p60 fps (frames per second). Video captured at 60 fps allows for high-quality, half-speed, slow-motion playback at 30 fps or for extra smooth playback at full speed on devices which support it. The 1080p240 fps setting gives you a 10X slow-motion effect when played back at the standard 24 fps.

Next-Level Video Stabilization

Don't worry if you're shaking (understandably) while B.A.S.E. jumping in your wingsuit for the first time. Your HERO6 Black won't give your rookie status away as it captures incredibly smooth video with GoPro's most advanced video stabilization, regardless of whether it's handheld or mounted to your favorite gear.

Waterproof Without a Housing

If you're like most of us, being more than 33 feet underwater isn't very likely. If that's the case, you won't need a special housing to shoot videos and photos. Ultra durable by design, the HERO6 Black is waterproof to 33 feet (10m) right out of the box.

Voice Control

GoPro makes capturing your every adventure in stunning 4K video as easy as pressing one button. Yes, pushing the Shutter button one time powers the camera on and starts recording automatically. But wait, it gets better. With voice control, you get hands-free control of the HERO6 Black using simple voice commands. Keep your attention where it should be--on that death-defying trick that no one should ever try at home—not on fiddling with your camera.

Touch Display

No need to wait until you get home to see if you got that money shot riding the swell at Steamer Lane. The HERO6 Black has a 2" diagonal touch display—now with touch zoom—that gives you the ability to preview and play back your shots, change the settings and even trim your footage—all right there on your camera without leaving your board.

12MP Photos

Select from single capture, Burst photos at up to 30 fps, Time Lapse mode that shoots photos automatically at set time intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds and Night Lapse mode with Auto (default) and intervals from 4 to 30 seconds and 1 to 60 minutes. That's amazing on its own, but you also get the choice of RAW photo capture for greater flexibility when you use advanced photo editing software, High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo capture that provides greater detail in shadows and highlights in your scenes and improved low-light performance.

Protune™ Controls

You'll get minimally compressed, cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions and advanced manual controls for photos and video with Protune. Customize your settings for color, ISO limit, white balance, sharpness, shutter speed and exposure for the ultimate in creative control.

Linear Field Of View

Videos and photos are captured with a straight horizon for a more natural perspective. Plus, there's no need to stand on your head to view videos you took with your camera upside down. Don't ask us how, but the HERO6 Black knows when it's mounted upside down and automatically captures everything right-side up!

GPS Location Capture

Never forget where you were when you (fill in the blank with an amazing story) and captured that video or photo with the built-in GPS Location Capture feature. The HERO6 Black captures your GPS path, speed, elevation gain and more. You can even add those stats to your videos with the free Quik desktop app.

Professional Audio

The HERO6 Black automatically filters out wind noise with Advanced Wind Noise Reduction. You know how big a deal that is if you've ever tried to talk on your phone outside in even a light wind. Plus, advanced audio processing captures dedicated left and right stereo audio channels from multiple microphones for clean, high-fidelity sound.

Access & Share From Anywhere

Using GoPro Plus (an optional paid subscription service), your HERO6 Black can automatically upload videos and photos directly to the cloud for easy viewing, editing and sharing on your phone. Your first drum solo can be a social media sensation before your heart even stops racing. NOTE: Auto upload to the cloud requires connection to an AC power plug (sold separately), full battery charge and a GoPro Plus subscription.

Bluetooth & Wi-Fi Connectivity

It's easy to stay connected with all the GoPro apps and accessories with the HERO6 Black's built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. You'll be able to transform your smartphone or tablet into a live video remote with full control of all functions and settings, shot preview and playback, plus sharing via text, email, social media and more. With its 5GHz Wi-Fi you can copy photos and videos over to your phone three times faster than with the HERO5 Black (if your phone model and region both support 5GHz).

HiLight Tag

Mark key moments by simply pressing the HiLight button on the HERO6 Black as you are capturing video. Then you can quickly locate your best clips later for convenient playback, editing or sharing using the GoPro app for mobile or desktop. You can also use the GoPro app to tag your highlights.

Versatile Mounting Options

There's hardly anything you can't mount your HERO6 Black to, including yourself or your Karma Drone, with more than 30 GoPro mounts and accessories (all sold separately) to choose from.
