Sorta, kinda, not really … it depends. It’s made complex. While I’m still a few days far from a final composed review of the GoPro Hero 9, I’ve dropped my total video evaluation over on YouTube already, and it’s definitely packed with information, video, comparisons, and information. Aside from all the usual swim/bike/run/ hike/etc testing areas, the cameras even spent the night in my deep freeze. They’ve been busy.
Today GoPro announced the new GoPro Hero 9, which includes a front-facing screen and 5K resolution, though likewise slightly increases the price.
Till that last text review strikes– here’s everything you need to know about the GoPro Hero 9 in one sub-15 minute watch session:
But, if you’re still looking for
Phew. Lots and lots of things. Ultimately, while the camera is heavier, I truthfully never ever noticed other than when holding them side by side. It’s just not a consider any meaningful method except perhaps if you were head-mounting it, and even then that ‘d be pretty questionable in regards to observing after more than a few minutes.
As for the batteries, while it is annoying that the Hero 9 has brand-new batteries, I will state that the claims do apply. In my hours and hours and hours of testing the Hero 8 and Hero 9 side by side, each time the Hero 8 battery went out well prior to the Hero 9 did (both when on similar modes and otherwise). Which eventually boils down to the battery simply being a chunker in contrast to the older ones. Thus at least the battery modification was functional in that I got something out of that scenario, rather than simply change for the sake of modification.
Still, the list for today is huge. In case for some odd factor you didn’t hit the ‘Play’ button above (seriously, you need to), here’s all the newness:
a bit more text, then keep reading. What’s new: I ‘d argue that in regards to pure features, the Hero 9 is by far the most significant upgrade to the GoPro Hero series. That doesn’t rather suggest it’ll have the greatest upgrade effect for everybody. I ‘d likewise 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.
I cover that in the video too.
Oh, and yes, the cam is still black in color. Also, the mount stays the very same.
