What happened at GoPro's event
GoPro Hero 6 Black
GoPro announced its latest flagship action camera, and while it weighs in at £499 and is therefore £100 more expensive than last year's model, it's because it can safely be called the company's most technically advanced yet. The GoPro Hero6 Black is capable of shooting video in 4K at 60 frames per second.
It can also shoot 1080p at 240fps for extreme slow motion playback. However, GoPro itself is most excited about the camera's video stabilisation, which it claims is the "most advanced" of any Hero camera in the company's history.

GoPro Fusion pricing
After months of teasing and sneak peaks, GoPro has finally spilled the bins on its revolutionary new 360-degree camera. The Fusion is the company's attempt at showing how easy it should be to create VR footage, but in a way that makes it incredibly simple to work with on a flat screen too. You'll be able to buy a GoPro Fusion for £699/$699.
GoPro Fusion was sent out to select pilot testers at the end of summer 2017, to get feedback from various 360-degree content creators. Go here to learn more about the Fusion, including when it will be available.
GoPro Karma modes
GoPro announced that its Karma drone is being updated to unlock a “follow me” feature and a “Watch” feature. The first allows Karma to follow you, or rather the controller that you’ll need with you, while Watch sounds more like a tripod mode. You can tell Karma to watch you and it'll stay put but rotate to keep the controller/you in the frame.
