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.
My usage is mostly skiing, and fishing.
Now for a little side note about bad reviews I've seen on here.
A lot of people are complaining about the color and such, well this was actually set up intentionally by Gopro so that when you go into post production (yes you need post to get anything that will look close to gopro videos you see) you will be able to make more changes to color without destroying the video quality.
The image stabilization is absolutely insane... It's almost gimbal like, it crops out a small percentage of the video, but if you frame your shots right, this wont be an issue at all. Coming from the hero 4, I'm completely blown away. Yes you can use warp stabilizer on premier to fix choppy footage, but with this you can just get that done in the field.
The image sensor is much much better. Low light looks soooo much better now through the hero 6.
Side note, I shoot exclusively in ISO max and min at 100. It makes for much less noise in your shots. If you don't have enough light, then get some more light.
The battery life is pretty dang good. I took it out skiing last weekend in temperatures around 12 degrees Fahrenheit, and it performed awesome. Got a full 7 hour day of skiing in before it almost died. (know that I'm not shooting the whole time though)
All in all, if you own the 4 or older, it's definitely worth the upgrade. I don't have the 5, so I can't really give feedback on that. From what I've heard though, it's still a huge upgrade.
Also if you aren't happy with your hero 6, and you aren't using premiere or final cut, please don't leave bad feedback, because you aren't using your Hero6 to its full potential.
I would attach some images and videos taken with it, but amazon's compression won't make it look good.

The first point that I want to make, is how stingy GoPro are with the attachments that come with the camera. Inside the box I found, the camera, a battery, a frame with a mounting clip attached, two self-adhesive mounts (one straight and one curved), a USB to USB C cable and a completely useless set of instructions. I would have expected way more than that, had I not known beforehand what was included. The instructions are basically a set of diagrams showing how to fit the camera inside the frame, where to place the battery/micro SD card, where to place the charging/data cable, the power and shutter button locations and how to mount the camera onto a helmet. I will include a photo of them.
I charged the battery, turned the GoPro on and then began to follow the set up instructions displayed the touch screen. This started well and then went horribly wrong. I tried to follow each prompt, I don’t know whether it was just me being daft or a problem with the program, but I managed to get myself in a real muddle. It ended up with the camera asking to connect to my phone with the GoPro app. I did this and after that things settled down a bit. Connecting to the app was very easy and the first thing it did was update the camera software, which was also very easy. After a little experimentation I figured out how to operate the camera and once I had done that it was very easy. I think GoPro need to look at the set up process. I would like to think that I am pretty good with these types of devices.
The camera is an absolute joy to use once you figure it out and there are some very cool features. Voice commands allow you to record, stop recording , turn the camera on, turn the camera off, and lots of other functions and these work right from the start. I have had several instances when the camera has switched on whilst I have been talking or listening to the TV though.
So what about the video – well it is very good. I have only used 4K, but it is impressive. This camera has video stabilisation too and it is the best that I have seen, almost as good as mounting it on a gimbal. It will only work up to 4K 30fps though and you lose 10% of the wide angle picture. Stabilisation is not available at 4K 60fps. The colours are lovely and vibrant; the video is sharp and very pleasing to the eye.
This camera is waterproof; you can take it into the water without a waterproof case. This is only an advantage if you are into water sports or wish to use the camera in the pouring rain. The down side of this is that the microphones also need to be waterproofed and this has resulted in a huge loss of clarity on the sound. Just like placing the older cameras into waterproof cases did. In all fairness it is not as bad as that, but there is a significant drop in sound quality because of this. You can get an external microphone adapter, but as with all of GoPro products, this is expensive and third party products are not available.
So I love the video produced by the GoPro Hero 6, but it is let down by the microphones. I think it is overpriced and does not come with enough equipment. However, there is no doubt that this is the camera that all the other cameras are judged against and that is for a good reason. If you want the best, you will just have to grit your teeth and get over the price and lack of gear. It is a GoPro after all!
I bought my GoPro HERO6 in February 2018. A friend (who also owns one) recently informed me it was defective (spontaneous mode switching, and frequent freezing). Still under full warranty, I contacted GoPro customer support in November 2018. We spent 90 minutes together online troubleshooting (manual installing new software et cetera), and they also concluded that it was indeed defective. The agent told me emails would be forthcoming with all the steps to get a replacement shipped, and I just need to send it back using the pre-paid FedEx return label that’d be arriving shortly. She even offered to throw in a free chest harness given all the time I’d spent troubleshooting. It was a great customer experience. Everything arrived, except the return label. I replied to her email and got no reply (it didn’t make any mention of being a donotreply address, which it was).
I called back a week or so later when the FedEx info hadn’t arrived, and a different agent told me that because I’m in Canada (even though I bought it here) I’d have to pay for shipping myself, and that they can’t/won’t reimburse that. She said that the free chest harness (I already own one and don’t really need it) was offered to offset that, which is not at all how it was characterized in my first interaction.
Basically, I’m being told I need to pay ~$40 FedEx costs to return their faulty hardware (sold new to me that way) for a replacement unit. The agent reviewed the CRM logs and steadfastly insisted that this was the only way because I’m “located in Canada” (though I bought it from Amazon.ca). I asked to speak with a supervisor who I was told was in a meeting, and was told they’d call me. Two days later, I haven’t heard back from anyone.
I have a trip to Africa in January and I need a working camera. I consider myself a very reasonable person; I’m not some whiner loves to complain. In the last few months, I’ve had customer service interactions with a few top tier brands. Bose (not defective, a wire pulled loose on some headphones) was fantastic. Maui Jim handed my nose bridge pulling loose quickly and efficiently. GoPro was shockingly bad. In fact, they’re on the cusp of losing me; I’m shifting from being a promoter to a detractor.
I’ll update this review with the eventual resolution, if there is one. But right now, I feel like GoPro sucks.
I was considering buying a dashcam, but none came close to this video quality. The stabilisation in HD resolution is also quite incredible.
I am also surprised at how effective the time lapse mode is. I did not expect that from an "action cam"
I had hoped more for its low light performance since it has quite a large lens.
And under strongly coloured lights (e.g. music venue) the white balance compensation does all sorts of wierd things.
To correct that I need to start learning the 'Protune' options.
My biggest disappointment was that the second unit that I bought locked up most times it was turned on (as many others have experienced). The only solution was to open the camera, pull out the battery and re-insert it. Amazon replaced it without any problem.
