2.has a 24p cinema mode
GoPro Fusion
GoPro Hero (2018)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
3.supports slow-motion video recording
GoPro Fusion
GoPro Hero (2018)
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Has timelapse function
GoPro Fusion
GoPro Hero (2018)
