GoPro is no longer the only player in the action cam market, with scores of rivals offering similar products at lower prices. For us, though, the original is still the best, and it’s not just the Hero6 Black’s specifications that make it an award winner, but its all-round usability, durability and adaptability. It can capture 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, and full HD video at 240fps, for an 8x slow-motion effect. It’s waterproof down to a depth of 10 metres without the need for an additional case, it offers both raw and HDR capture, and it has GPS, an accelerometer and a gyroscope built in. The new GP1 processor delivers twice the performance of its predecessor, the Hero5 Black, for improved low-light performance and excellent image stabilisation. We say: it’s pricey, but worth it.
