GoPro has launched Go Pro 6, a new installment to Go Pro Family. Last two years has been little tough for the Go Pro Family as they were not been able to strike right cords with their product leading to fall of shares and employees being dismissed. But this Go Pro actually looks as very promising prospect. Nick Goodman (GoPro CEO & Founder) is quiet enthusiastic and confident about the product
GoPro Hero 6 features its own custom image processor named as GP1. It’s the first GoPro with company’s own chip, as prior they were dependent on Ambarella for GoPro processor. Earlier they have limitations on chip department which now GoPro can customize according to their own needs, giving extra edge to add variable features.
