GoPro Packs More of Everything into New HERO9 Black

GoPro’s New HERO9 Black is described to be “more of everything”, but what does “more of everything” mean?

It means a new sensor that delivers 5K video and 20 megapixel photos, next-generation HyperSmooth 3.0 video stablisation with in-camera horizon levelling, a new front-facing display, a larger rear display, 30 percent more battery life, and a Max Lens Mod accessory that brings Max HyperSmooth video stablisation and Max SuperView ultra wide-angle photo and video to HERO9 Black.

GoPro has also renamed their original GoPro Plus subscription offering to simply GoPro. This reflects how central the subscription service has become to the brand’s product experience.

“HERO9 Black reflects our commitment to delivering what our customers have been asking for, including more value for their money,” notes Nicholas Woodman, Founder and CEO of GoPro.

GoPro has also eliminated plastic frpm HERO9 Black’s packaging, instead, the camera is in a high-quality travel case that fits additional mounts and accessories.
