It also adds 5GHz Wi-Fi support, the first (or at least one of the first few) implementations of the faster 802.11ac wireless standard in a camera that I can think of. Seven analysts have issued estimates for GoPro's earnings, with the lowest EPS estimate coming in at ($0.59) and the highest estimate coming in at ($0.45). However, the new camera is highlighted by the above-mentioned increased 4K frame rate, overall higher frame rates for other video recording modes and overall better image quality and speed thanks to the new model's superior, "custom" processing engine.

GoPro Fusion is ready for the elements and waterproof down to 16ft (5m). Fusion includes a waterproof shell, is mountable on GoPro's plethora of mounts, and includes voice control.

Traders are a little more bullish on shares of GoPro, Inc. of late if you take note of the fall in short interest.

The GoPro HERO6 Black offers a great set of features.

The Karma drone is Hero6 Black-compatible and features two new auto-shot paths: Follow and Watch.

The camera is also controllable by voice, and can act as the camera (12mp) with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), which, according to GoPro, has been improved. It may not be an ability you'll ever use on a GoPro, but even if that's the case these videos will help you get an idea of what the company's newest camera is capable at one of its limits. GoPro did not specifically mention which products will be unveiled at the event, but the Hero 6 Black is expected to be the star of the show. HERO6 is optimized for QuikStories with 3X faster WiFi. All users need to do is transfer footage from GoPro to their phone and the GoPro app automatically creates QuikStory videos.

The company also provided an update about its 5.2K Fusion 360-degree camera which was seeded with some commercial testers over the summer. "Fusion captures everything around you so you'll never miss the shot". The $700 camera shoots spherical audio and video by capturing everything around you. GoPro HERO6 Black is available on GoPro.com as well as at select retailers at Rs 45,000.

Fusion is available for pre-order now for $699, and is slated to start shipping in November.

KARMA - Take the Lead.

Here is a handy comparison chart comparing the HERO5 Session, HERO5 Black, and the new HERO6 Black. "Watch" is a simpler follow mode where the drone simply hovers in place and rotates to keep the Karma Controller in frame. Just like they sound, the new settings will use Global Positioning System to allow the Karma drone either automatically follow the Karma Controller and continuously frame the user in the shot, or to watch the controller while hovering in place.

In other GoPro news, Director Anthony John Bates sold 25,529 shares of the stock in a transaction on Thursday, September 7th.

Fusion Studio desktop software will be available when the product ships.
