What customers say about "Size & Weight"
GoPro HERO6 (CHDHX-601) Action Camera
  • I recommend 100%. In addition its versatility, size, functionality and final quality make it an ideal video camera for adventures, tourism and sports.
  • There isn't another camera in the market that comes close to matching its superior picture quality + portability balance. It's light weight and very easy to use.
  • The apps/software are easy, seamless, and fun. The camera itself is so freaking small it’s crazy.
  • This is a very small camera writing a lot of data to a tiny card and so there will be a lot of expected heat.
  • The entire camera is small which is great but they sacrificed a lot to get the camera that small.
Sony DSC-RX0 1.0-type Sensor Ultra-Compact Camera with Waterproof and Shockproof Design
  • Small compact shouts raw file i love this sony.
  • The RX0's ultra compact form factor and rugged waterproof design allow for unusual placement options in challenging environments that are prohibitive with traditional production cameras.
  • It is waterproof to 33 feet and the body is very rugged.
  • One of the most shocking things to me about this camera is its tiny size. I can mount this virtually anywhere and I can also toss it in the pocket of my shooting vest and forget its there.
  • It is a very nice camera, but the size makes it cumbersome to handle.

What customers say about "Display"
GoPro HERO6 (CHDHX-601) Action Camera
  • The touch screen is more responsive.
  • The touch screen is very responsive and quick
  • OMG - Amazing quality. Love the screen on the back, shots are more accurate.
  • Build quality issues on two units. Visible glue around the display and serations around the bezel. I don't think I'm going to exchange yet another one. It will most likely go back for good. Build quality is everything on a $500 device!
  • I got a dud! Out of the box, the screen freezes just when changing camera modes from video to photo, or trying to change camera view, or randomly when toggling through any of the control screens.
  • The touch screen is a little annoying, but the photos are great.
Sony DSC-RX0 1.0-type Sensor Ultra-Compact Camera with Waterproof and Shockproof Design
  • The screen is very small & is hard to see in sunlight.
  • Screen is very small.
  • The screen itself is about the size of a normal camera’s memory card to give you an idea how small it is.

What customers say about "Video"
GoPro HERO6 (CHDHX-601) Action Camera
  • And the most amazing thing is the variety of resolution and fps settings. This thing can shoot 4K in 60fps! Or 1080p in 240fps! This is one incredible machine that is so compact and so useful.
  • GoPro smartly got rid of the narrow and medium fov and instead added the ability to ZOOM. Essentially it's the same as using these modes but you have much more flexibility in how close or far you want the sensor to crop, plus you can see exactly what the effect will be as you adjust the zoom/fov
  • 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.
  • This thing can shoot 4K in 60fps! Or 1080p in 240fps! This is one incredible machine that is so compact and so useful.
  • One issue with these extremely high frame rates is the inability to edit them in most mid range computers.
Sony DSC-RX0 1.0-type Sensor Ultra-Compact Camera with Waterproof and Shockproof Design
  • What this camera does & it does it well is shoots high-quality footage where other cameras can’t.
  • It shoots slow motion bursts at up to 1000 frames per second – that is impressive.
  • The quality of the video is very good but it does take some fiddling to compose shots.
  • Video quality in a medium lit room at night was smooth and crisp with life-like colors.
  • No in-camera 4K video. 4K video is only available when outputted to an external recorder.

What customers say about "Features"
GoPro HERO6 (CHDHX-601) Action Camera
  • Sound Quality - Not requiring a case, allows the GoPro Hero6 to have AMAZING sound quality!! When Hero5 came out, sounds quality was GREATLY upgraded!! The sound has stayed the same and is AWESOME on the Hero6
  • Battery Life is fine.. After several uses on 4K60FPS I get close to 1.5 hours.. Lower quality's I can break 2 hours per battery!
  • Waterproof without a case BUT you can buy a case to go even deeper!!
  • All of the features of the Hero5 are also found on the Hero6. Waterproof, LCD back screen, GPS, RAW photo, manual ISO and shutter, stereo and wind resistance plus Protune audio, auto cloud updating, Quik Story, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity, and selective spot metering/ light adjustment
  • Great video, terrible audio recording. If you want it for video without audio it's great. If you want audio with video your options are to use your cell phone to record audio separately and merge it later
  • Camera footage is phenomenal - above water and underwater above 15 ft or so. The 33ft waterproof advertisement is misleading... it doesn't seem to leak within that range (good), but the buttons all implode (auto-press themselves) and you lose all control over the camera while diving
Sony DSC-RX0 1.0-type Sensor Ultra-Compact Camera with Waterproof and Shockproof Design
  • Large 1” (1.0-Type) stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with DRAM Chip provides impressive image quality.
  • Wireless multi-control function can control multiple RX0 cameras with a smartphone.
  • Picture Profile and S-Log2 gamma settings enable movie shooters to create the visual appearance of movie footage in-camera, thus saving valuable time in post production editing.
  • Limited operating temperatures of approximately 0℃ to 40℃ (32 ℉ to 104 ℉). Being so ruggedized I would have expected to be able to use the RX0 in much harsher conditions. Even in North America we routinely encounter temperatures way outside the camera's usable range
  • It does not have image stabilization which is a must-have in an action cam.
