GoPro HERO6 Black 4K action video camera captures 4K60 and 1080p240 video on its GP1 chip. You can activate the camera with hands-free voice commands, record underwater up to 33 ft below, and create QuikStories to share footage on social media. The camera delivers digital stabilization to smooth your shaky video footage on small motions. HERO6 ecords your video and photo stills on an optional SD card. This camera supports good low-light performance with specific night modes, plus it features an integrated GPS.

HERO6 Black offers Video, Photo, and Time Lapse camera modes:

  • Video - delivers both Video and Looping
  • Photo - (3) capture modes: Photo, Burst, Night
  • Time Lapse - (3) capture modes: Time Lapse Video, Time Lapse Photo, Night Lapse Photo

Photo stills are created in .gpr files, which is based upon the Adobe .DNG RAW format.

You can zoom in to the image before you with the touchscreen, before recording.

Waterproof Housing

Swim down 33 feet with the waterproof GoPro HERO6 Black to capture underwater footage. 

Remember to use your camera tether and an optional Floaty, both sold separately, to keep your camera afloat during water sports.

NOTE: Do not use a camera tether when mounting to your action helmet. You should also not mount the camera directly to skis or snowboards.


The GoPro HERO6 Black offers digital stabilization to smooth your recorded footage and reduce shakiness. It does this by offsetting for motion during capture. This function is ideal for capturing small yet fast action, such as cycling, motorcycling, and handheld use.

Remember, this is not a gimbal. HERO6 digitally adjusts the footage to smooth what you see.

NOTE: Video stabilization is available for all resolutions, except: 4K60, 4K 4:3, 2.7K120, 2.7K60 4:3, and 1080p240. It crops the image 5% when shooting in Wide FOV.


Ideal for posting and sharing new content to your social media sites, the QuikStory funtion is an automatic copy of video and photos from your GoPro HERO6 Black to your compatible mobile device. The GoPro App can deliver an edited video, with music and effects, so you can share your new QuikStory online. Save, edit, or delete the story while on your smart phone.


You can playback the footage you shot using your GoPro HERO6 Black. You can also insert your microSD card with recorded footage into your camera to play content directly. Note that tesolution of the computer will affect the ability to play videos.

When using Slow Motion video playback you will lose the audio portion. Go play a record in the wrong speed, if you miss that sort of thing, this is digital. GoPro knows you want to add your own tunes and sound effects.

Remember, when playing video with the GoPro App you can mark your favorite moments by adding a HiLight Tag by tapping the down arrow icon. 

Connect your camera with your micro HDMI cable to your HDTV to view video content and photos on a large screen.
