I'm considering acquiring a GoPro Hero 6 for my videography purposes. Considering I could take this little package places my DSLR would die in, would it produce images with enough quality for Alamy QC? It has a 12MP 1/2.3 sensor and can shoot RAW, HDR, and has manual control.

It seems unlikely that the images quality will be good enough. Consensus on this forum seems to be that minimum recommended sensor size is about 1".

 

That being said I have successfully submitted some downsized (to 6MP) images shot in bright sunlight and low ISO from a Canon G10  (1/1.7" sensor). I have however also had some QC fails (SoLD) from the same camera when I tried to submit without downsizing.

Sell the videos elsewhere instead.

It might be worthwhile to keep it in your pocket for breaking news.
