    "I had to come back and update this review. My sincere apologies to anyone that bought a Gopro based on any one of my reviews! This issues concerns what will happen to your camera if you leave the battery in. Your gopro could actually die. I don't mean the battery can just go dead, but that as the battery runs down, it can actually damage the camera to the point where it may not turn on, or is unusable in another way. Electronics shouldn't have shelf lives. That is whether you leave the battery in or not. I expect to replace batteries from neglect, not cameras! They can't fit a smart battery in, but they could make camera circuitry to completely disconnect the battery if the voltage dips to a certain level like any smart device has. Lithium batteries do not leak and run all over the inside like alkaline, so there is no issue with that. I find this unacceptable, and I would seriously think twice about purchasing one of these!"

When I go somewhere more scenic I like to tell everyone a little history about the place and maybe give some insight to what is around me. For this I need a good rugged camera with a microphone and the GoPro HERO6 is one of the best solutions to this that i've found. the video quality is great and the microphone does pretty well. I can even play the recording back and listen to it with the built in speakers!"

    "No better words to describe HERO6 compared to its precedent versions. Two times more performance power and overall quality than HERO5, equipped with touch zoom and highly interactive UI definitely makes it to be in the top. By using this product, i feel myself like a tech prodigy with very advanced capability to capture each and every moment with concrete and ultimate precision of every photons reflecting surfaces of even fundamental elements of matter around us. The experience of this product is only to be lived to understand. No proper words could be used to describe it."

    "By far this is the best GoPro ever. I wasn't sure if this camera would be a big enough upgrade to the Hero5 Black. It's a HUGE upgrade. Everything is better with the Hero6 and it's noticeable right away. Not only are you getting double the frame rates with 4K/60 and 1080/240, but everything just looks so much better! Stability is amazing and the color is outstanding. The GoPro color is vibrant and beautiful. If you color grade in post like I do, and prefer the flat profile, the Hero6 gives you so much more to work with compared to other similar cameras including the Hero5."

    "Good product. After having my hero 4 stolen from me I decided to give the 6 a go. Definitely a difference from the quality of the 4 to the 6. Better stabilization, camera quality and waterproofness. (I think thats a word). However, there is a few downsides. The biggest downside is the battery life. The camera only comes with one battery but it really doesn't last that long, maybe about an hour. I would definitely recommend buying an extra battery charger, and extra battery. Another downside is that it doesn't come with a memory card, (typically most cameras don't). So make sure you buy one of those while buying the camera or you're gonna have to wait until the memory card comes in to use it. The memory card is a tiny little card, I'm sure if you type in go pro memory card you'll be able to find it. Other than the battery life its a great camera and i strongly recommend. There are 2 apps that you can download on your phone. One is the Quik app which lets you edit and put images/videos into a montage type thing. The other app is the go pro app which allows you to control the go pro from your phone and look at the pictures on your phone."

    " A really great action cam. I have been testing this out for about a week, and I haven't found much about it that I don't like. I put a 64 GB U3 card into it, and it allows me to take more than an hour of 4k video, which is great. Setting it on full HD gives me almost 6 hours of recording time. There are really two settings for how wide the lens works. The "normal" setting gives an EXTREMELY wide-angle shot, with quite a bit of barrel​ distortion. Knowing about lenses and how they work would necessitate this distortion to get the extreme angle. It is nice to know that it will be hard to miss action with that much angle on the lens. There is also a second setting for "underwater" that reduces the angle somewhat and takes away a fair amount of distortion. There is also a great time lapse function so you can do those cool videos where you build stuff. I really like that. The camera comes with a pistol grip attachment that makes filming really easy, and it uses the same attachment type as the GoPro accessories, so all of those head straps, chest straps, and selfie sticks "
