GoPro Hero 6 Black vs GoPro Hero 5 Black

GoPro Hero6 Black review

The specifications of the new GoPro Hero6 have been finally announced, although they have been all over the internet for days. With the popular action camera now official, let’s do a direct comparison of specs for a good old fashioned GoPro Hero6 Black Vs GoPro Hero5 Black.

Some of the standout features of the GoPro Hero6 Black are its 4K at 60fps and 1080p at 240fps video capability, a new digital zoom, automatic cloud back-up, touch zoom and a price tag of £499/$499. But lets take a closer look at how the GoPro Hero6 Black compares against the Hero5 Black, its predecessor.

  • GoPro Hero 6 Black Vs Yi 4K+
  • GoPro Hero 6 Black Vs Garmin Virb Ultra 30

Body Design

Starting our GoPro Hero6 Black vs Hero5 Black comparison with the look and design, and there is little, if any, difference. The Hero5 was after all, pretty understated, and due to the dramatic change in styling from the Hero4 it has up until this point been instantly recognisable as the Hero5 over the Hero4, 3, 2 or Hero.

Now that the Hero6 has arrived it’s going to be difficult to tell the two apart (If only they’d gone for my colour scheme ideas) but then this is a running theme with GoPro, the Hero4 Session and Hero5 Session are almost identical.

Prior to that the Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 all looked the same, aside from the large number tattooed on the front. This time GoPro has been even more reserved with the version number. You’ll just see Hero 6 printed on the side of the lens. Check it out in the image at the top of this page.

  • How the GoPro Hero6 Black could integrate into the Smart Home

Sticking with the design introduced with the Hero5 all makes sense for GoPro. Look and colour remain the same; after all GoPro doesn’t want to annoy all those customers who have just invested in the Karma and Karma Grip. Especially the Karma grip, as the whole Jabber team has now invested in these devices!

In this first round of our GoPro Hero6 Black vs Hero5 Black comparison the Hero6 takes the lead when it comes to physical dimensions and weight, measuring 6.2 x 3.3 x 4.4cm and weighing in at 117g. The GoPro Hero5 Black measures 6.2 x 3.3 x 4.4cm and weighs in at 118g, a whole gram lighter.

  • GoPro Hero6 Black: What about the audio?


The next big feature is the resolution, and this is where we really start to see a demonstrable difference between the GoPro Hero6 Black vs the Hero5 Black. The Hero6 Black makes the leap up to 4K at 60fps from Hero5’s 4K at 30fps. The GoPro Hero6 Black also is capable of 1080p at 240fps for ultra-slow motion movies.

I already have my reservations about that leap. The GoPro Hero5 Black, when pushed to 1080p with a frame rate of 120fps, was really only usable in idea sunlit conditions. Beyond that it produced pixelated and lackluster footage. Could this be resolved with the GoPro Hero6 Black’s new GP1 processor (I think that stands for GoPro 1)? We’ll see when we get busy testing.


Another win for the GoPro Hero6 Black vs the Hero5 Black is that new faster processor to cope with the increased demands of resolution and frame rate. In Nick Woodman’s speech at the launch he did mention that the processor will also boost the low light performance and we hop the quality of the high frame rate quality.

Although the new GP1 processor was talked about any further details on what this processor has to offer in terms of power have yet to be announced if ever. I’m keen to check the performance out against the Yi 4K + that features Ambarella h3 Soc processor.

It’s easy to get blown away by specifications such as 4K resolutions at 60 fps and features like voice control but what makes this possible is that new GoPro-produced GP1 processor inside.

The frame rate jump is welcome but this update could be more about the GP1 processor and sensor than anything else. If it’s able to push up that quality and capture truly usable footage at 60fps for 4K and 240fps at 1080p then that’s impressive.

It’s now known that the new camera will feature the Optimised GP1 capture chip, a break from its traditional tie with Ambarella. It’s also unusual for GoPro to announce the chip set inside, so it must be a big thing.

There’s no insight yet into the sensor that this will be coupled with. In the past it has been part of the Sony Exmor family, and with the RX0 having been announced from Sony this could mark an incredibly interesting leap in quality.

The new processor looks to push another big win for the GoPro Hero 6 Black with the following performance highlights.

Image Stabilisation

It looks like the image stabilisation has also taken a step-up as this is listed as one of the big features. Image stabilisation was introduced in the Hero5 Black and it was pretty good, but nothing compared to the Karma grip. I’ll draw this one for now and revisit when I get to see it first hand.

Wifi speed takes a leap with 5 GHz WiFi that will provide super-fast offload speeds for photos and videos. This all ties in with the new automatic cloud backup feature, I look forward to seeing how this works and will bring you a full demo as soon as possible.

This all means that the GoPro Hero 6 Black will be integrated as part of the Smart home with backup to the cloud.

Surprisingly the streaming feature I wrote on the Hero6 Black has gathered a good following but at present it doesn’t look like this is a feature.

It seems quite obvious that although the specs don’t hit the headlines many clamoured for of 8K and a billion frames a second, this addition to the GoPro stable is all about processing power and image quality. I really can’t wait to take a closer look.

GoPro Hero6 Black vs Hero5 Black specs compared

For now, here’s the specs for the GoPro Hero6 Black and Hero5 Black. You’ll see that aside from the resolutions, they’re almost identical. So like the GoPro Hero3 Black to GoPro Hero3+ it looks like this upgrade is indeed all about the visual quality and processing power of the new camera.

Here’s a quick look at how the key frame rates compare:

  • GoPro Hero6 Black 4K at 60fps Vs GoPro Hero5 Black 4K at 30fps
  • GoPro Hero6 Black 1080p at 240fps Vs GoPro Hero5 Black at 120fps

And below is a side-by-side comparison of the GoPro Hero6 Black and Hero5 Black specs.

GoPro Hero Vs Hero6 Black: What's The Difference?

GoPro’s Hero is an entry-level camera which retains many key features of the company’s visually almost identical GoPro Hero6 Black and GoPro Hero5 Black models, but costs significantly less.

There are of course many important differences between them, so which one should you buy?

Let’s break down the key differences between the GoPro Hero and the GoPro Hero6 Black.

GoPro Hero6 Black Vs Hero5 Black: What's The Difference?

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Introducing the GoPro Hero

The numberless GoPro Hero provides a new entry-level option priced lower than the existing GoPro Hero5 Black and GoPro Hero6 Black models which sit further up the range. Aside from a slightly more colorful logo, its external appearance is almost identical to the more expensive stablemates. However, it features a significantly reduced internal specification.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Overview

Here’s a quick overview of the main differences between the GoPro Hero and the GoPro Hero6 Black:

  • GoPro Hero advantages: Fewer confusing options, Price!
  • GoPro Hero6 Black advantages: Protune, raw photo capture, raw audio capture, Karma compatible, external mic support, GPS, 5GHz Wi-Fi, faster processor, HDR Photo Capture, Touch Zoom, advanced video stabilization, Night Lapse Photo mode, looping video, Night Photo mode, more burst rates and time lapse settings, higher resolution sensor, HEVC codec, 4K video, higher frame rates and many more settings available at all resolutions.

It’s clear from this long list that the Hero lacks many features of the flagship model, but key features such as size, battery and water resistance are all retained, making it useful in all the same scenarios as the Hero6 Black, albeit at a lower quality. Both are waterproof to a depth of 10m (33ft)

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Price

Available directly from the manufacturer at $199, the GoPro Hero sells at just under half the price of the Hero6 Black ($399), making it a much more affordable option and a less expensive way to buy a full-size GoPro as a gift.

If your budget won’t stretch past $199, but you don’t want to sacrifice features such as 4K video and raw image capture, then you may still be able to find the now discontinued Hero5 Session available in stores at the same price.

See GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero5 Session: What's The Difference? for more info.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Design & Dimensions

Featuring almost identical external housings, the Hero and Hero6 Black share the same size and weight.

  • GoPro Hero and GoPro Hero6 Black 362.3 x 44.9 x 33mm ( 2.5 x 1.8 x 1.3 in) , 117g

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Battery

Both models include a removable 1220mAh lithium-ion battery.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Key Hardware Differences

The GoPro Hero features a 10-megapixel image sensor which offers a lower resolution than the 12-megapixel version found in the Hero6 Black. This restricts the maximum capture resolution for both video and photo modes (see below).

The Hero6 Black also makes use of GoPro’s home-grown ‘GP1’ processor chip, which is significantly more powerful than the Ambarella processor found in the Hero, Hero5 Black and  Fusion models. Its faster processing allows for enhanced features such as higher data capture rates and improved stabilization.

Another significant feature notably absent from the Hero is GPS which means the camera won't be able to automatically tag your location in your shots.

In addition, a turned-off Hero6 Black can be turned back on using voice commands for up to 8 hours after powering down.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Video Specifications

When it comes to video recording, the biggest difference between the two cameras is that the Hero tops out at 1440p, whereas the Hero6 Black can record at resolutions up to 4K.

Furthermore, the Hero6 Black is capable of recording at higher frame rates, with 240fps available at 1080p, whereas the Hero can only manage 60fps. This gives the Hero6 Black the ability to record slow-motion video at up to four times slower than the standard Hero.

At its highest video resolution of 4K, the Hero6 Black can record at up to 60fps and stepping down to 2.7K allows it to record at up to 120fps.

The Hero6 Black offers the more efficient H.265 codec for recording and can capture video data at up to 78Mbit/sec where the Hero is limited to 60Mbit/sec. It also supports GoPro’s ‘Looping’ video mode where the camera continuously records video footage for a set interval, letting you save only the moments you want.

The GP1 processor and higher resolution sensor of the Hero6 Black enable what GoPro calls ‘advanced’ video stabilization. Simply put, this results in better image stabilization than can be achieved with the standard Hero.

One unexpected benefit of the entry-level Hero is its ability to capture still images at set intervals while you’re recording video - a feature curiously absent from the Hero6 Black. The Hero also offers ‘Narrow’ and ‘Medium’ field-of-view modes at 1440p and 1080p which are not offered on the Hero6 Black.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Audio

Both cameras have strong audio capabilities, but the Hero6 Black enables the use of an external microphone via an optional 3.5mm adapter. It can also provide higher quality sound by recording in the uncompressed .wav format.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Photo Specifications

When shooting still images in jpeg mode, there’s much less difference in quality between the two models than there is when capturing video.

The 12-megapixel sensor of the Hero6 Black does provide a little more detail than the 10 megapixel Hero, but this is only a 20% increase in resolution whereas you’ll get around 300% more resolution from the Hero6 Black when shooting video.

The Hero6 Black’s faster processing does, however, give it a big advantage in speed. While the Hero can capture bursts of ten shots per second, the Hero6 Black can capture up to thirty and is configurable to capture at any of eight slower burst rates down to three per second.

The Hero6 Black has a great deal more shooting options than the Hero, including ‘Night Photo’ for long exposures in low light and a dedicated ‘Night Lapse Photo’ mode for improved low light time lapses. It also provides many more manual configuration options, most of which fall under the category of ‘Protune’.

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Protune

Aside from the missing 4K video mode, the biggest omission on the Hero is the lack of GoPro’s ‘Protune’ mode. With Protune enabled, the user gains full control over settings such as white balance, ISO and exposure compensation. It also allows for higher quality capture with reduced compression and can create output more suitable for editing with professional software.

The lack of Protune on the Hero essentially renders it unsuitable for professional work where post-processing is required but keeps it simple enough for beginners to use without the risk of ending up with badly configured settings they perhaps don’t understand.

The 2018 GoPro LineupGoPro

GoPro Hero Vs GoPro Hero6 Black: Conclusions

The Hero and Hero6 Black are clearly differentiated by both price and function. The entry-level Hero sheds most of the advanced features of the flagship Hero6, but costs only half the price, making it ideal for the first-time GoPro user who wants all of the rugged, waterproof capabilities of a decent action camera without having to pay for features they may never use or understand.

Professional users, however, are unlikely to be satisfied with the Hero as it lacks the image quality and configuration options required to work well with high-end desktop editing software.

If you need these features, but don’t have the budget for the Hero6 Black, then you should consider the Hero5 Session, although you’ll have to make do without the touchscreen display.

Of course, there is a middle ground in the form of the GoPro Hero5 Black, and you can read about the differences here:
