4K video was the norm; however, the GoPro Hero 9 now raises the quality bar to an incredible 5K. Competitors will have a hard time catching up with 5K, especially as GoPro combines HyperSmooth 3.0 with a stunning 23.6MP sensor. As this is the case, you can expect the Hero 9 footage to be the best in the business. Vloggers, travellers, photographers and videographers will all want this, so if that’s, you then ensure you get in early as stock is likely to go quickly.
The GoPro Hero 9 includes all the main benefits of the Hero 8 while keeping pace with its competitor, the DJI OSMO Action. The aesthetic of the camera differs greatly as you will quickly notice a front-facing LCD screen, capable of live preview for easy framing. There is also a large rear touch screen with touch zoom providing fast, intuitive control. For those earlier GoPro adopters the Hero 9 makes perfect sense as a welcome upgrade.
Exceptional 5K Video Quality from the HERO9
The GoPro HERO9 Black is first and foremost a highly capable and powerful extreme action camera. Video performance is where the new Hero 9 excels as it delivers stunning 5K video resolution with a bit rate of up to 100Mbps. Thanks to the updated 23.6MP resolution sensor, video quality is amplified with brilliant detail and fluid motion. But the good news does not stop there as the GoPro Hero 9 Black delivers an array of video performance features.
The new model features a Linear plus Horizon Leveling digital lens to ensure stable and straight video at up to a 45% tilt. Also, the HyperSmooth 3.0 function delivers the most advanced stabilisation system seen on any GoPro camera. Beyond stability, the Hero 9 offers TimeWarp 3.0 allowing you to shoot captivating footage while on the move.
The system condenses time and uses the all-new Speed Ramp capability so you can select your speed for capture including audio. Speaking of audio, the Hero 9 relies on advanced audio performance captured through 3 unique microphones with wind-noise reduction assured. You can even playback your audio thanks to the in-built Loudspeaker 1. If you are shooting in a dynamic setting and your fear missing a critical moment, HindSight is here to save the day. It will capture high-quality video footage from 30 seconds before you even press the shutter button.
Read on to discover more amazing video features of the all-new camera, including how you can optimise your camera for live streaming and webcam use. The creative possibilities are endless with GoPro Hero 9 Black.
GoPro Hero 9 Image Quality
While the video capabilities are the star of the GoPro HERO 9 Black show, it is no slouch when it comes to stills photography. The Hero 9 makes the most of the 23.6MP image sensor to capture crisp and clear 20MP still images. Thanks to the SuperPhoto functions within the camera, you can capture JPEG and RAW image files even for time-lapse and LiveBurst. The burst mode will fire off up to 25 frames per second, ensuring you never miss a single frame of the action.
If you want to extract a single frame from your high-quality video, you can grab a frame and still retain a 14.7MP image file. Also, the SuperPhoto mode extends to single shot, night photo for low light performance and 2x digital zoom. Plus, the GoPro Hero 9 Balck provides for a SuperPhot + HDR mode where image exposure is automatically optimised.
Be Creative With HyperSmooth and TimeWarp
Forget relieving Back to the Future reruns, as TimeWarp 3.0 will help you relive your past as a Motionflow. When utilising this GoPro HERO9 mode, all you need to do is mount or hold the camera in one position. Then as you walk or drive the camera will record time-lapse shots of your journey. Combine this with Speed Ramp (now with audio), and the effects you can get are breathtaking. There is even a function that allows you to record at half speed for more creative control.
If you are an outdoor, action or sports lover, then the GoPro HyperSmooth 3.0 is an essential element to obtaining stable footage. The GoPro Hero 9 adopts this technology along with in-camera horizon levelling to ensure viewers don’t experience a rollercoaster or back-seat-of-a-speeding-car viewing experience.
Creator Friendly With GoPro Hero 9 Live Streaming Mode
In today’s fast-paced world, videography has extended to immediate internet connectivity for content sharing. This is especially critical to the YouTube life vloggers who love to deliver serialised content of life adventures. Fortunately, GoPro is a step ahead of the game as the Hero 9 allows for immediate live streaming in HD 1080p. What’s more, you can record your vlogging event to the MicroSD card while broadcasting your life feed via the GoPro app on your device.
To keep up with the changing pace and adaptability of the world’s workforce, GoPro provides the ultimate tool. For the work-from-home crowd, the GoPro Hero 9 Black provides a Webcam Mode. With your Hero 9 connected to your computer via a GoPro mount, you can stream crystal clear 1080p video live. Never miss a Zoom call or a critical business event again.
Touch Functionality For Ease Of Use
Today’s visual creatives demand a certain level of flexibility and performance from their gear. Thankfully, the GoPro Hero 9 Black provides the ideal device to maximise usability and workflow for even the most demanding videographers. The Hero 9 features not one but two colour LCDs. The new and larger rear screen has a full touch interface allowing for quick and precise input. This includes touch zoom and the ability to compose your frame before taking your shot. With the GoPro HERO mode, you can frame up the perfect selfie, check your camera settings and playback your latest footage - all from the new front LCD screen.
To drive the performance and optical quality of the dual screens, the GoPro Hero9 Black has maximised power management and performance. The camera houses a new and much larger 1720mAh battery delivering 30% longer battery life of past GoPro models. Plus, GoPro offers an optional Supercharger power adapter that will boost the process and charge the battery 35% faster.
