We knew it was coming, but today GoPro officially released the Hero 6 Black, the company's new flagship camera, and the previously teased Fusion, their 360-degree camera. It also has an OverCapture feature that "punches out" a regular image from a spherical photo and onboard stabilization features allow for smooth capture.

The Fusion has front and back cameras for 360-degree footage. Although they have yet to fully detail the specs it will feature dual, off-set cameras for better stitching, built in stabilization, waterproofed up to 16 feet of water, and can be activated with voice commands.

Other new Karma updates include an expanded Cable-Cam auto-shot path and "Look Up" camera tilt capability.

Transferring video from the camera shouldn't take almost as long, either, thanks to new 5G Wi-Fi support (GoPro says users can expect 3X offload speeds).
