GoPro Hero 9 Black Overview
GoPro has launched its 2020 new GoPro Hero 9 camera for all the vloggers and photography lovers. It has come with a few designs and internal changes in its new device over the past GoPros. The new model comes with a bigger body, bigger battery, and ultimately a bigger price.
GoPro Hero 9 offers its users the option of a removable lens. This time it provides a dual display with a 1.4-inch sharper and brighter LCD at the front and 2.27 inches main screen color display at the back. Comparing it with Hero 8, Hero 9 is bigger and slightly heavier with a small bump around the camera at back and 5-6mm wider. Thee total body weighs at around 158g, the Hero 9 is heavier than its predecessor.
Front and Rear Screens
There’s a new 1.4-inch front-facing color LCD that will be useful for framing your shots when you have the camera pointed towards you. The new display isn’t touch-enabled. You do get the option to choose center close up, Actual Screen, Status only, and off on the display.
The main screen comes with a 2.27 inches touch display with touch zoom. The display is larger than Hero 8. Hero 9 still has large, dated bezels and feels noticeably slower when responding to touches and swipes.
The device packs 1720 mAh that will provide 30 percent more battery life as compared to its predecessor. It is a significant upgrade from the 1220mAh battery that Hero 8 offered. Hero9 coms with the same USB-C port, microSD card slot, and battery compartment on one side. It has also start/stop button on the top and the power and mode button on the side.
