Sorta, kinda, not really … it depends. It’s complicated. While I’m still a couple of days far from a last composed review of the GoPro Hero 9, I’ve dropped my complete video evaluation over on YouTube already, and it’s absolutely packed with information, video, comparisons, and data. Aside from all the typical swim/bike/run/ hike/etc screening areas, the electronic cameras even invested the night in my deep freeze. They’ve been hectic.
Today GoPro announced the new GoPro Hero 9, which includes a front-facing screen and 5K resolution, though likewise a little increases the rate.
Till that last text evaluation strikes– here’s everything you need to understand about the GoPro Hero 9 in one sub-15 minute watch session:
But, if you’re still looking for
But I cover that in the video too.
Phew. Lots and great deals of stuff. Ultimately, while the video camera is heavier, I honestly never ever noticed except when holding them side by side. It’s simply not a factor in any significant way except possibly if you were head-mounting it, and even then that ‘d be quite doubtful in regards to noticing after more than a couple of minutes.
Oh, and yes, the video camera is still black in color. The mount stays the exact same.

Still, the list for today is substantial. In case for some odd reason you didn’t hit the ‘Play’ button above (seriously, you ought to), here’s all the newness:
a bit more text, then keep reading. What’s brand-new: I ‘d argue that in regards to pure functions, the Hero 9 is by far the biggest upgrade to the GoPro Hero series. That does not quite mean it’ll have the biggest upgrade impact for everyone. I ‘d also argue that if you had a GoPro Hero 6, the shift to Hero 7 or Hero 8 was by far the most significant in terms of image quality or stability. It was at that juncture GoPro left the competition in those concerns.
Till then– enjoy all the footage above, in addition to the huge compilation video below, which is truthfully more an insight into what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks, with 2-4 action cameras simultaneously mounted at all times. It’s fine.
As for the batteries, while it is irritating that the Hero 9 has new batteries, I will say that the claims do apply. In my hours and hours and hours of evaluating the Hero 8 and Hero 9 side by side, whenever the Hero 8 battery ran out well prior to the Hero 9 did (both when on identical modes and otherwise). Which eventually comes down to the battery just being a chunker in contrast to the older ones. Thus a minimum of the battery change was practical in that I got something out of that circumstance, instead of simply modification for the sake of change.
Thanks for reading (and seeing)!
