The GoPro Hero 6

The GoPro Hero 6 features 60P FPS at 4K and 240 FPS at 1080P.  It will be priced at $500.  Sony’s new small, square camera is more interesting to us as it’s non-fisheye lens and bigger sensor will make it easier to cut into cinematic pieces.  But as an action camera it’s nice to see GoPro catching up to the Yi 4K+’s 60FPS at 4K.

Sony’s Strange New RX0 Action Camera

Maybe Action Camera isn’t quite the right term as you need an external recorder to get the 4K.  With a 1-inch sensor, 4K video resolution, 4:2:2 output, 24mm F4 lens, S-Log2, and a $700 price this is a strange little camera.  F4 sucks.  If you light your set this will be fine but F2.8 would have been the minimum to make this video camera more versatile.  We shouldn’t complain though as it’s good to have more options and small, high-quality video cameras are welcome.

Xiaomi Mijia: Cheap, Good 4K Action Camera

The ‘good’ remains to be proven, but we have high hopes for this 4K action camera that will sell for around $100-120. This camera weighs only 99 grams and it has a 2.4 inch touch-screen. A Sony sensor is used and the rest of the hardware is respectable. This camera is said to have 6-axis stabilization but this appears to marketing hyperbole as all stabilization is electronic and not optical.

Yi 4K+ Action Camera: 4K 60P

You can view the specifications for this camera at the Yi Technology website. It’s nice to see 4K 60P finally show up in an action camera and we’re glad it’s Yi’s as they’ve had reasonable and value pricing in the past.

The sensor is the SONY IMX377 1/2.3” and will reportedly feature 4K 60FPS at 120Mbit.
