What people are saying about it:

“Awesome. I got the camera for my birthday and I love it.” – Michael D. on

“Worth every penny. I’ve only had it for a few days now, but have made several videos with it and taken several pictures. The quality is amazing! Videos were smooth and looked great. Impressed with the build quality of the camera as well as the accessories.” – Joe on

“Great. But one big problem!!! Shoots great videos and stills which I improve further in the editing software. If I could I would film in 4k linear and shoot RAW linear stills (but that is not a problem since the other modes really good). The main problem I have found is the camera screen freezing, the only way I can fix this is to take out the battery (this can happen up to about 7 times per charge.) Despite this the camera is really very impressive so it gets ⭐⭐⭐⭐” – Ollie on

“Best camera 4 Vlogging & action. I absolutely love my new GoPro Hero 6 and will continue to use it for everything I do. It shows very good high quality HD for videos and photos. I highly recommend everyone to get one these bad boys.” – doctorjazzman1 on

“Great Camera and you should buy but… This camera was worth it for ME and MY circumstances (more cinematic, slo mo, durability for constant travel. But before upgrading, I know the GoPro videos look super cool but really think about how much you are really going to use it and if the couple times you DO is worth like $400. My only problem with it is that it froze up once and I had to take out the battery and I wish that Gopro would add more voice commands for when i’m in the water like: “Gopro view my photo/video”, “Gopro switch to 1080p 120fps” and things of that sort. Great camera if you are actually going to use the features of it, if not, the Hero 5 is for you.” – Owen on
