|Subject: Compress GoPro Hero6 Black 4K to 1080p
||GoPro has taken the same core principals behind previous Hero flagships to new extremes with the Hero6 Black($499). This latest Hero pumps up its video and photo cred by adding a brawnier processor chip (GoPro calls this new silicon "GP1") which unlocks 4K video shooting at 60p, or 60 full frames per second. While this spec doesn´t matter to many consumers, to professional videographers it´s another step to making silky-smooth ultra-high-resolution video capture possible anywhere.
Additionally, if you don´t have a powerful PC (having at least a 6th generation Intel chip helps enormously), you´ll also have plenty of trouble getting this GoPro´s 4K footage to play back smoothly.
