The New GoPro Hero 9 Black Action Camera Features A Second Color Screen And Lasts A Third Longer
GoPro has unveiled the Hero 9 Black action camera, one of the broadest updates in the series in recent years. The novelty received a front-facing color screen and an improved sensor with the ability to capture video in 5K quality, and the battery life was increased by a third.
The 1.4-inch auxiliary selfie display allows you to observe yourself directly during shooting and better understand what exactly gets into the frame. The diagonal of the primary rear touchscreen has also grown — from 1.95 to 2.27 inches, according to the manufacturer's website. Water-resistance at a depth of up to 10 meters is also claimed.
The battery capacity has been significantly increased — from 1200 to 1720 mAh, due to which the action camera, depending on the settings, will be able to work "30%" longer. Following the display and battery, the device's dimensions have increased, albeit slightly — because of this, the new model may not be compatible with some old accessories.
The new 23.6-megapixel sensor lets you record 5K video (as well as 4K, 2.7 K, 1440p, and 1080p), create 14.7-MP still frames, and take 20-MP photos. Also, the Hero 9 Black can capture up to 8x slow-motion video at up to 240 frames per second.
GoPro offers a new product for $450. If you sign up for an annual subscription, Hero 9 Black will cost $350. A new Max lens module (for $100) with improved stabilization and a wider viewing angle will go on sale later.
