Now, with low light improvements and the fact that it shoots "flat" it's honestly a huge benefit to my work! What I mean by shooting flat, is that the video sequences lack the high contrast I've gotten with the GoPro Hero 5 Black edition and that's a GOOD THING! They dynamic range is inproved, less clipping in highlights and more information in the shadows, you can up the contrast in post production and get the look you want. But that's not what I needed this for.
I'm a single shooter, meaning that I work alone, even when covering weddings. I have always done mixed media with my Nikon DSLR bodies which meant that I would shift back and forth from stills to video sequences. Now I'm not even going to pretend that the GPH6B is competing with the capabilities of pro-body DSLR cameras, BUT, I can use both at the same time. A recent client asked if I could take stills of things like ring exchanges, the first kiss, bouquet toss etc... AND, include short video grabs of those critical moments? Well, actually, yes, now I can do just that.
During wedding ceremonies, I don't use a strobe on top of my camera, I don't want to disturb the sacred moments, nor make myself part of the "action" up at the altar. The solution is that I can put the GoPro Hero6 ON my Nikon hot-shoe, I set the field of view etc to 1080p Narrow 30 fps.
Wherever my camera is pointing to take those special photos, the GoPro is videoing and with the field of view set to narrow, you don't see your 70-200 zoom lens, even with the shade/hood in place.
I remain a one-person-show and don't make myself into a spectacle at weddings or performances, AND get both video and stills without switching back and forth from one camera to another. GoPro HERO6 Black is finally for truly Professional workflows. I'm so glad to have it!
I did read several reviews before purchasing the Hero6 and noticed many complaints regarding the camera stalling, shutting down, not recording, re-starting etc... Those issues are almost always due to the wrong capacity Micro SD Card. The problem is that they often sell this camera in a bundle that includes a Micro SD Card that does NOT meet the minimum performance requirements of the Hero6
When you go to the GoPro site, there is only ONE RECOMMENDED CARD LINE and here it is: SanDisk Extreme/Extreme Plus/Extreme Pro UHS Video Speed Class 30 (V30) - ≥32GB
I personally wouldn't use any card that is not marked "Extreme Pro" by SanDisk. and I recommend that you don't get a card smaller than 64gb. In 4k, a 32 gig card will get used up in a blink depending on your selected frame rate.
Your read/write speeds will save data recording problems from happening. AND, in post-production, you will offload your video data much quicker and time = money. If you don't use the endorsed cards, don't complain, it's the operator, not the gear.
I would definitely recommend this camera to enthusiasts and pros that need to add to their image making arsenal. FIVE STARS to say the least.
Don't trust a lot of the bad reviews. They are made by people that don't really know anything of consequence on video... This camera is VASTLY superior to it's predecessor. People that really don't know anything are going to fall back on a comparison of frame rates.
This camera does offer only modest improvements in frame rates, but it offers a great leap in dynamic range, which is important to people that know about photography, and want to make good videos.
I will give those that don't know a slight lesson. So dynamic range is the difference in many instances of either poor, or mixed lighting. What happens with poor dynamic range is when you go to look at your video, it might be thought of as "too bright". What is will be is washed out, with the highlights blown out. What a good dynamic range allows is that the bright parts of the frame (say in the sun) will be exposed properly and you will see them, but you will also be able to see the shadows, which means the entire frame (light and dark) will be exposed properly. Your videos will look better.
Now in the dark, with good dynamic range, it means your dark areas will be expose properly, and less grainy (noisy), while the lights will also be exposed properly. With poor dynamic range, what will happen is either you won't be able to see anything but the brightest spots, with the rest in black, or the camera will pump up the iso so you will see the darks, which will look terrible and grainy, but the bright spots like car lights will be overblown.
Now as for the cost. The cost is NOT too high, and the value is there. People have grown accustomed to paying to little from Chinese manufacturers for these cameras. I have tested some, and to be frank, even BEFORE this release, the Chinese knockoffs were not up to the quality of the Gopros. This gopro has a new proprietary chip, which is and will be vastly superior to the knock offs in image quality! You will start to see Gopro really pull away from the knockoffs because the Chinese companies will not be able to match them in the future. Now having said all that, how much do people think it costs to design all that innovation and image quality into such a small package?
Will there be competition to this in image quality? Yes, I believe there will be, and possibly much better! The Sony Rx0 has a one inch image sensor, which should be vastly superior in image quality, and also frame rate. Of course, it will be more expensive and we will have to wait to get them in our hands and test them in the real world....
I was no fan boy of GoPros. I thought they were all hype and the facade of having a gopro, but I was wrong years ago. They have been in fact better, and worth the money.
I did not buy a Hero 5, because I didn't see that as an upgrade, and could care less about gitchy voice control. The only thing I really care about is image quality, and if I see an improvement then I want to upgrade.
Two downfalls for the camera:
A. Sound quality is actually worse than for the Hero 5.
B. The weird codec is going to give some people some problems.
Pluses for this over the all the competition:
A. MUCH better dynamic range than anything out there in a comparable class.
B. Image stabilization is perfect, although it is digital. This doesn't particularly apply to me, as I always use a 3 axis stabilizer, but for MOST people, this is going to be a BIG plus! It is going to be the difference between making people sick or not!
In general the video looks fantastic!
