I was one of the very first to try the new GoPro Hero 6, long before it was out on the market. It was back in June when the GoPro team contacted me and asked me if I wanted to try the new camera, I absolutely LOVE it, I’ve been dying to share this with you!
 
I have been a GoPro user since the Hero 3 came out and long before I was a GoPro Family member. I dropped my Hero 3 so many times that it stopped working, that was when I bought my Hero 4 and since Hero 5 came out I’ve been a ´Family Member´.
 
You can only imagine what an honor it was when Joanna and Erin from GoPro asked me if I wanted to beta test the new Hero 6. In June I signed an NDA and sat on a Skype call with Erin from GoPro who explained the new features and said that I was free to test it and check out the new features.
 
Usually, before I buy a new product I will always google information about it, I read reviews and also try to check out ´unpacking tutorials´ on Youtube. But what do you do when you have the product in your hands long before anyone else before any tutorials or manuals are available?
 
Visually the Hero 5 and Hero 6 are identical, if you look carefully you can see that it says Hero 6 on one and Hero 5 on the other.
 
Some of my favorite new features, however, are the support of taking RAW photos and on the Hero 6, you can also do that in ´Time Lapse´ mode. I use the Time Lapse photo setting almost every time I take pictures to make sure that I don’t miss anything, to be able to have it in Time Lapse and RAW is absolutely perfect for me as it gives me more editing possibilities afterward! A Big Thumbs Up!!
 
Hero 6 has zooming capability also. Finally!! I know a lot of you have asked for that. The slow-motion capabilities are just amazing, you can capture 60fps in 4K, 120fps in 2.7K and 240fps in 1080!! 6 and Hero 5 are also waterproof without a housing, you have no idea how many times I have almost jumped in the water with my Hero 4 and forgot to change to the waterproof housing! Haha, this is definitely a lifesaver! 
 
Right now I’m at the Hero 6 release and learning everything about the new camera if you have any questions about the new camera that you want me to find out let me know!
