Here’s the lowdown on all the fab features of the GoPro Hero 9 Black.
If a holiday to you is about thrills and spills and you love to click images and video of all the fun stuff that you do, you may want to consider picking an action camera instead of the staid (and rather delicate) DSLRs. Take the latest GoPro Hero 9 Black, with its excellent build quality and portability. It fits into your pocket, survives a LOT of punishment and is waterproof down to 33 feet (10 metres)!
It has a 23.6 MP sensor and shoots 20MP photos, 5K resolution videos and 14.7 MP video grabs, has a very user-friendly app and stays connected to a smartphone very efficiently as well. We liked its all-new front display, perfect for selfies or all those times you want to have yourself in the frame, whatever you’re doing, from kayaking to ziplining. There’s a larger rear display than the last edition too. Reviewers have found excellent image stabilisation qualities in this one. The upgraded battery lasts longer and the GPS is effective, both important functions when you’re in the great outdoors! It offers the option to be used to live stream 1080p video to YouTube, Facebook profiles and pages.
The size (71 x 55 x 33.6 mm) and weight (158 gm) are greater than the last model, but we think that it’s worth it to have the additional features it offers, such as the two new displays. And to add to its aesthetics, it now comes in a nice soft, travel case.
