GoPro Hero9 Black Review: Two steps forward, one step back

 

GoPro's latest flagship brings new features to both software and hardware, but 5K video and 24MP stills don't look as good in practice as they do on paper.

Front screen ; Larger rear screen ; Higher-capacity battery ; Supports Max Lens Mod ; 24MP stills

Bulkier compared to Hero8 ; 5K video feels pointless ; Incompatible with Hero8 Media Mod

GoPro Hero9 Black Review

 

Up to 5K quality at 30fps ; Front-facing color LCD ; Exceptional video stabilization ; Up to 240fps HD slow motion ; Time-lapse, buffering, and HDR imaging ; USB-C charging ; Strong app support ; Compact and waterproof

You'll likely want to carry extra batteries ; Subscription service adds recurring costs ; Discounted pricing not available from all retailers

GoPro's Hero9 Black action cam delivers excellent, stabilized 5K video and ups still quality, but not everyone should spend more when the Hero8 Black is still available for less.

GoPro Hero9 Black review

 

With 5K video and a front-facing display, the GoPro Hero9 Black is the new action camera to beat.

Smooth video ; Front-facing screen ; Intuitive interface

Heavy

More than that, though, it’s the GoPro’s image quality, coupled with its comprehensive features, that make the Hero9 one of the best action cameras around. However, all these new features, plus a larger battery also make the Hero9 one of the heaviest...

GoPro Hero 9 Black review

 

If you're a taker of selfies, a vlogger or an adventure filmmaker, GoPro's new flagship camera is made for you. There was a time when action cameras were primarily for capturing sports, but the new GoPro Hero 9 Black pushes in a new direction by...

All-new front display Larger rear display Excellent image stabilization 20MP photos and 14.7 MP grabs from video Stable connection to a phone Easy-to-use app

Larger physical size Batteries are not backwards-compatible Touchscreen is laggy Max Lens Mod costs extra Hit-and-miss horizon leveling

Action cameras and going modular. GoPro’s latest attempt to get one-up on the DJI Osmo Action and the Akaso Brave 7 LE means a front display for vloggers and taking selfies, high-resolution photos and video grabs, but most importantly a removable lens...

The GoPro Hero 9 Black's most important changes are to do with ease of use rather than image quality, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Longer battery life;Image quality and stabilisation are excellent;Useful front display

Similar 4K image quality to Hero 8 Black, but with greater contrast;The price jump is significant;Still pretty poor at night

GoPro Hero 9 Black review

 

The GoPro Hero 9 Black is the most powerful and versatile action camera you can buy, but collectively its new features don't provide quite enough real-world benefits over its predecessor to justify the price. The two biggest upgrades are its new...

5K video delivers more detail Front display is handy for vlogging Improved battery life New software tricks

Unresponsive touchscreen Little improvement to 4K shooting Still no 4K/120p mode HEVC files need recent editing hardware

The GoPro Hero 9 Black is the most powerful and versatile action camera you can buy, but for most people its predecessor offers better value. While the new sensor and front display are useful additions, the changes don't collectively represent a big...

GoPro Hero9 Black review

 

From zero to Hero9 - GoPro's still ahead of the pack

Better battery despite two screens ; Sharp and stable 5K video ; In-device horizon levelling

Overheats after 30 minutes of 5K capture ; Slightly narrower field of view than Hero8 Black ; Bulkier than the dinky Hero8 Black

Boosts in all the right places make the Hero9 Black the pinnacle of action cam excellence, but if you don’t need 5K, you may well be better off with last year’s model.

GoPro Hero 9 Black review: The action camera, redefined

 

At Rs 49,500 the Hero 9 Black remains a tool for professionals - but this time around GoPro is after Vloggers and YouTubers who have the cash to upgrade to a new flagship camera.

Review: GoPro HERO9 Black action camera

 

Well, it's here: the latest GoPro. This time it's the GoPro HERO9 Black action camera, which GoPro has tagged as: “More of Everything”. And they aren't

Great performance;Expansion of capabilities;In camera horizon levelling

Webcam streaming control could use 50 hertz anti-flicker;A little bigger and heavier than previous models
