GoPro announces pricing for Fusion spherical camera

GoPro announces pricing for Fusion spherical cameraā€¯

(Well, that and the ultra-slow-mo 1080p at 240 fps.) The stabilization won't replicate what you get from a bigger, more feature-rich video camera harnessed to an external gimbal, but it could make action cam footage much more pleasant to watch.

The new Hero6 camera is compatible with the QuickStories application, which automatically creates short videos from the captured content.

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

GoPro announced the new products at a media event in San Francisco.

There are also a bunch of mount updates, while the QuikStories mobile app is created to make it easy to share short videos of your adventures.

GoPro Inc.is betting on two new devices to differentiate itself from the fast-advancing camera technology found in smartphones, and to help it reclaim profitability. It has Global Positioning System, a 2-inch LCD touchscreen on the back, voice controls, and some neat instant-offloading and instant-editing features to help with the inevitable backlog of footage. It also advances GoPro's computer vision and machine learning capabilities, allowing the Hero6 to analyze visual scenes and sensor data for better QuikStories. The Hero 6 will retail for $499 and goes on sale today, and the Fusion will sell for $699 and ships in November. It's waterproof to 16 feet (5m) and offers advanced stabilization; 360-degree audio; and a bunch of different modes, including time-lapse video and photo, night lapse, and burst. But even more interesting than that, GoPro announced Fusion, a waterproof, mountable 5.2K spherical camera.

Overcapture, which records more than the footage necessary for the 360 scene and flattens it so you can use any section independently, reconstructed in software as if you were cutting a multicam shot (in a free update to the GoPro app, available 2018). A new feature is an Overcapture option that allows users to select a more limited viewing field for the 360 feed.

GoPro stock fell 1.8% to 11.48 on the stock market today.

The GoPro Karma Drone is getting two new features including a long-coveted "Follow" mode, in which the drone homes in on the Karma Controller's Global Positioning System signal and follows the user wherever they go.
