This is the new GoPro HERO9 Black

Action cameras are getting better and better all the time. It used to be GoPro and then daylight for action cameras but the competition is hotting up somewhat which is only good for consumers, and for GoPro. The latest edition to come from GoPro is the GoPro HERO9 Black, priced at $699.95 AUD.

Let’s go straight into the main specs:

  • A new sensor delivering 5K video (5K30, 4K60, 2.7K120, 1440p120, 1080p240 and more)
  • 20MP Photos (+ raw)
  • New 1.4″ front colour display with live preview and status modes
  • Larger 2.27″ rear touch display with touch zoom
  • HyperSmooth 3.0 Video Stabilization with in-camera horizon leveling
  • TimeWarp 3.0 featuring Real Speed and Half Speed
  • Removable lens cover
  • 30% longer battery life (and improved cold weather performance)
  • Stereo + RAW audio

That front colour display is squarely aimed at vloggers and content creators and is complemented by 1080p Live Streaming and a 1080p Webcam mode. Helping you out is voice control with 14 commands in 11 languages and 6 accents. 

With Hindsight, you can capture up to 30 seconds of footage before you start recording. Some kind of black magic going on here!

Then you get into the accessories such as the Max Lens Mod accessory which offers “HyperSmooth” stabilisation and an Ultra Wide Max SuperView for a 155 degree field of view. The Max Lens Mod also features a horizon lock to keep videos on the horizontal or vertical axis, whether the camera is mounted off-centre or is rotated 360 degrees.
