The GoPro Fusion VR camera lets you recapture your spherical video

GoPro also today launched Fusion-a waterproof, mountable 5.2K spherical camera it's been testing since April-plus new mounts and accessories, and new Follow and Watch modes for its Karma drone.

Teased since CES in 2016, the Fusion builds upon the success of their existing cameras and has a few minor changes from the existing 360 camera lineup on the market. There's also 18-megapixel 360-degree still image capture. Its six cameras on the device can capture VR and non-VR in 5.2K resolution and comes equipped with 360-degree audio. It's rugged as ever and waterproof out of the box to 33 feet.

At a product unveiling Thursday, the action-camera company announced the Hero 6 Black, a refreshed version of its flagship camera aimed at adventure seekers.

Transferring video from the camera shouldn't take almost as long, either, thanks to new 5G Wi-Fi support (GoPro says users can expect 3X offload speeds). During the announcement GoPro had a skater roll past the Fusion, then edit the shot to just follow behind where they were traveling.

The GoPro Fusion's OverCapture is one way to get round this. While most VR cameras include some odd spots of a tripod or extension pole, Angel View is created to hide the included grip. (High-end editing software uses a very similar process.) The resulting footage should look similar to what you'd get if you strapped an older GoPro to their stabilized Karma grip. It will also feature the more standard effects such as tiny planet and slow-mo.

A new bundle is available for $1,200 that includes a Hero6 camera.




Aside from being an accolade, users will find the high frame rate helpful whenever they want to slow down footage and show action happening frame-by-frame - this is especially true with the GoPro Hero6's ability to shoot at 1080p and 240fps.

In addition to improved specs, GoPro also announced a new software feature called QuikStories.

There are also a bunch of mount updates, while the QuikStories mobile app is created to make it easy to share short videos of your adventures.

The Fusion will be available in November and cost $699, but preorders are now open.

Hero6 is available now at retailers worldwide and GoPro.com for $499.
