360H6 Modular Design

Mounting 6 GoPro™ cameras in their waterproof housings, the rig’s simplistic design offers compatibility with GoPro™ Hero5 Black cameras, GoPro™ Hero4 series cameras, GoPro™ Hero3 series cameras and GoPro™ Hero2 series cameras. This adaptability has allowed users to take the 360H6 all over the world and to continue updating the unit as camera technology evolves.

See the 360H6 get assembled:

Since the 360H6 attaches to GoPro™ cameras via their waterproof housings, it can be attached to the GoPro™ Hero5 Black in the same fashion with the addition of a waterproof housing (sold separately). Our original setup video for the 360H6 demonstrates how cameras and their housings are fastened to the rig. This process is exactly the same for the GoPro™ Hero5 Black and can be applied to add support for this new generation of cameras.

Camera Compatibility

The 360H6 is compatible with GoPro™ Hero2, Hero3, Hero4 and Hero5 Black cameras. In order to add Hero5 Black camera compatibility to the 360H6, users must purchase 6  GoPro™ Super Suit  dive housings. These housings can then be fastened to the adhesive mounting pads that come with the 360H6 kit as demonstrated in our 360H6 assembly video above.
