A good deal for a lightly used camera (renewed) make sure to factory reset!
July 11, 2019
I got this to function as a dash cam for my motorcycle after an idiot was driving his black mustang convertible and almost hit me and others when he was swerving between lanes - he was driving like he was playing GTA, including slamming on the brakes to try and get a rear end collision on an off ramp all during commute hours, so very heavy traffic.
There aren't really any good options for motorcycles for dash cameras so I decided to try this. Recording at 4K 60FPS provides a very clear still image (see the attached picture - I've blanked out the license plates but they are very readable). The battery life is ok, it looks like it should last about 1-2 hours, my 30+ min commute recording at 4K60 leaves the battery with ~60% remaining.
A couple of tips: To get the superwide field of view you need to drop down to 4K30, but the gain on the width is very small so I'm leaving it at a higher FPS to try and get less motion blur, although I'm still playing around with it.
I have this mounted with a RAM mount suction cup that I got a few years ago. It's not ideal since the mount doesn't accept the larger GoPro thumb screw, but it does work and holds the camera stable enough that the playback with image stabilization is pretty good (maybe the Hero7 will be slightly better - but this is very usable).
The touch screen on the back of the Hero6 is very intuitive and easy to use and the ability to press and hold the record button to turn on and start recording video is very convenient, especially when wearing gloves.
The only item to be aware of when buying something like this as "renewed" or refurbished, is the camera may be attached to the previous owners account, so I strongly recommend you do an immediate factory reset if you buy used. My camera arrived and was registered to the previous owner Francisco, a quick factory reset kept his and my privacy secure.
