GoPro Fusion 360 Camera Released Sans Some Software Features

Adnan Farooqui November 14, 2017


GoPro unveiled its 360-degree Fusion camera in late September and the company has now started shipping the device. However, some software features that the company talked about during the camera’s launch are not going to be available at launch. They won’t be available for the camera until “early 2018.” The GoPro Fusion 360 camera is now shipping out in the United States and Europe.

The GoPro Fusion 360 is a 5.2K camera that’s capable of recording video at 30 fps. It’s also capable of recording 3K video at 60 fps. The camera can capture 18 megapixel photographs as well.

It has some other features as well which include voice control, water resistance up to 16 feet, and optical image stabilization. GoPro sells it for $699.

The camera has another feature called OverCapture. It allows users to recapture and share their 360 degree footage in a conventional fixed perspective video. While the company talked up the mobile OverCapture feature when the camera was announced, it’s not available at launch.

GoPro has said that customers will have to wait until early next year before they’re able to use the OverCapture feature. The feature lets them use a phone’s gyroscope to get the frame they wanted by moving the phone around physically.

Customers will be able to make these edits on their desktop with Fusion Studios, though. The visualization presets like PanoFlow and Tiny Planet will also not be available at launch.

GoPro Gets Covered By Lava And Miraculously Survives

Tyler Lee November 7, 2017

GoPro’s cameras have a reputation to them about how they are sturdy and rugged and can be used in extreme situations. We’ve seen the camera used during various extreme sporting activities, dropped, dunked underwater, and survive, but could a GoPro survive after being doused with lava?

Turns out the answer is yes, although we do not recommend it. Erik Storm, who is the owner and lead guide of Kilauea EcoGuides in Hawaii was on a tour about a year and a half ago when he decided to put his GoPro into a crack between the rocks to film the flowing of lava. He was telling a story when he noticed that molten lava had completely covered his GoPro, with the camera catching on fire in the process.

Speaking to PetaPixel, Storm was quoted as saying, “I was telling a story when the molten lava completely engulfed my GoPro (with housing on) and it caught on fire. I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss.” However it seems that despite device catching on fire and the extreme temperatures (which are presumably beyond what GoPro is advising), the camera continued to function.

He took out the SD card and found that its contents were still intact. According to Storm, “The camera even still worked although not a well as it did before. Truly amazing it survived!” If you’d like to check out the footage of molten lava engulfing a GoPro, check out Storm’s video above.

New Entry-Level GoPro Camera Coming Next Year

Adnan Farooqui November 2, 2017


GoPro has confirmed that it’s going to replace the original Hero Session with a new entry-level action camera next year. The existing entry-level action camera was announced two years ago and it’s now reaching the end of the road. GoPro is going to come out with a new entry-level camera in 2018.

The last two years have been quite difficult for GoPro. The company laid off many employees and shelved some products. It worked very hard to return to profitability and the efforts have paid off. GoPro reported its earnings for the third quarter of 2017 yesterday and confirmed that it was the company’s first profitable quarter in two years.

The company posted $330 in revenue for Q3 2017 and brought in $14 million in profit. GoPro still has to face challenges, it’s not out of the woods just yet. The company profits fourth quarter revenue of $470 million which is going to be its worst for the holiday quarter in two years.

On the hardware front, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman revealed that demand for the company’s entry-level Session was higher than anticipated in 2017. This will result in “sooner than expected end of life for this product.” He added that this presents GoPro with an opportunity to expand its market with a new entry-level product that will be released in 2018.

He didn’t go into the details about the features and specifications of the new action camera but we’re likely going to hear more information about it through the grapevine in the months to come.

Adnan Farooqui September 28, 2017


The 360 degree camera for consumers that GoPro first talked about back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 will soon be available for purchase. The company has revealed some crucial bits of information about the GoPro Fusion 360 camera. GoPro CEO Nick Woodman teased the camera on stage today at the company’s San Francisco event. There, he confirmed how much the GoPro Fusion 360 camera is going to cost and when will customers be able to purchase it.

GoPro’s consumer 360 degree camera relies on two lenses to shoot video at up to 5.2K and 30 frames per second. It’s also capable of taking 18 megapixel spherical photos and capturing 360 degree sound.

The camera itself is waterproof up to 16 feet out of the box and is compatible with most GoPro accessories. It also has a plethora of other features as well such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, and more. The camera will be able to do more than just capture spherical videos.

GoPro’s OverCapture feature will enable users to recapture and share their footage in a conventional fixed perspective video. GoPro confirmed today that its Fusion 360 camera is going to be available for purchase this November.

It’s going to be pricey. The company will charge $699 for it. The exact release date will be confirmed in several weeks.

GoPro Hero 6 Black 4K 60 FPS Camera Now Official

Adnan Farooqui September 28, 2017


GoPro’s new action camera was leaked a couple of weeks ago so the company hasn’t unveiled anything entirely new today. At its event today in San Francisco, GoPro has made its new Hero 6 Black action camera official. Just as the leaks had revealed, this camera is capable of capturing 4K video at 60 frames per second. The exterior design of the camera is similar to that of its predecessor, the Hero 5. This means that it’s also waterproof.

All of the improvements have been made under the hood. Not only is it capable of capturing 4K video at 60 frames per second, the camera also brings better image quality overall and speed as it has a new custom processor.

As expected, the Hero 6 Black is also capable of shooting 2.7K video at 120 frames per second and 1080p at 240 fps. Users will have the option to shoot in standard frame rates like 24 and 30 fps as well. The Hero 6 Black supports 5GHz Wi-Fi so it can transfer footage to a mobile device three times faster, at least that’s what GoPro claims.

The camera is capable of shooting 12 megapixel still photos in JPG or RAW. The design remains the same, the camera is waterproof up to 33 feet, features a 2 inch LCD touchscreen display, voice controls, and GPS.

It costs $499 which is $100 more than its predecessor and is available for purchase starting today.

GoPro Hero6 Black Launch Date Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui September 25, 2017


We’ve been hearing reports recently that GoPro has a new action camera in the pipeline. Several leaks have revealed details about this new camera which will be called the GoPro Hero6 Black. The company today confirmed when it’s going to officially launch its new action camera. The GoPro Hero6 Black is going to be officially launched later this month at an event in San Francisco, California.

GoPro today sent emails to the press confirming that it’s going to conduct a launch event this coming Thursday, September 28th. The launch event will take place in San Francisco, California.

The invite doesn’t say which products we can expect to be announced at the event. However, there’s enough evidence now to support the theory that the GoPro Hero6 Black will finally be launched officially.

Reports suggest that the GoPro Hero6 Black will be capable of shooting 4K video at 60 frames-per-second. It may also be capable of recording 1080p video at 240 frames per second. It’s said to be twice as fast compared to its predecessor with better transfer speeds, improved image stabilization, and low light performance.

The camera is expected to cost $499. Reports suggest that it’s going to go on sale the very same day it’s unveiled to the world.

GoPro’s launch event is going to take place on September 28th. CEO Nick Woodman will open the proceedings at 9 am PST.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Could Be Announced September 28

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

If you’re after a new GoPro camera, then you might have heard that GoPro has a new camera in the works in the form of the GoPro Hero 6 Black. Photos of the camera have recently leaked and according to the rumors, the camera is said to offer up better video recording than before at 4K resolution with a framerate of 60 FPS.

However the question is when will the camera be announced? According to a new report from Photo Rumors, it seems that the GoPro Hero 6 Black could be announced as soon the 28th of September which is in about a week’s time. The report claims that the camera will also begin selling on the same day so customers will be able to go out and get their hands on it right away if they wish.

In terms of pricing we’re not sure quite sure how GoPro will price its new camera, but we don’t expect it to deviate too much from its predecessor. It could potentially cost a bit more than before, but it should still roughly be in the same ballpark. Photos of the device have also shown that GoPro hasn’t done much to change the design with the Hero 6 Black, or at least nothing major. In any case we should have the official details soon enough, so check back with us soon if you’d like to learn more about it.
