Takes fantastic stills and video. The anti-shake feature works really well when using it for recording video when cycling. Disappointed about the lack of a remote control though (cannot be used with the RC from previous models).

Great features but the whole thing is marred by the camera overheating within a short time. Apparently you can reduce this by changing the factory settings but you shouldn't have to. Battery life is not that long either.

Buy something different.

Kinda a step backwards

★★★★★ 3.0
Takes a good video. You need to get a hevc codec to run 4k video files. The touch screen takes alot of work to get use to and not as responsive as many modern devices. Found the gopro can freeze or lock up when videoing for longer periods. Front screen more of a novelty but has been fun when my kids play with it. Pretty sturdy and not worried if it gets wet or sandy. Very impressive time lapse and hyper lapse functions. Have used the gopro 8 and seemed more impressive overall.

I have 128 gb sd card in it and this camera lags a bit when shooting on 4k. People also said that in youtube videos. Also i bought 30$ expensive in goodguys , at jbhifi it was 600$ , i checked later.

Great piece of equipment

★★★★★ 5.0
The 5K video quality option is amazing however only allows to shoot at 25fps so not enough if you want to use slow motion but as you go down in quality, the fps increases, 4K max 50fps, 2.7k max 100fps, 1080 max 200fps. Theres a good variety of lens options from narrow to Superview. You can also replace the lens cover which I hear you couldnt do on the Hero8. Ive upgrades from a much older GoPro so the improvements are great for me

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★ 4.0
The GoPro Hero 9 Black’s most important changes are to do with ease of use rather than image quality, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
Pros: 
  • Longer battery life
  • Image quality and stabilisation are excellent
  • Useful front display
Cons: 
  • Similar 4K image quality to Hero 8 Black
  • but with greater contrast
  • The price jump is significant
  • Still pretty poor at night

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★★ 5.0
The GoPro HERO 9 Black rocks a front-facing colour screen and boosted specs across the board, yet GoPro has kept complexity to a minimum, meaning pretty much anyone can pick up a HERO 9 Black and shoot genuinely impressive 5k video.
Pros: 
  • Massive specs on every front
  • Potent but easy for beginners to use
  • Extremely robust build quality
Cons: 
  • On the heavier side for some mounts/applications
  • Voice controls improved but still slightly buggy

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★★
The GoPro Hero 9 Black is the most powerful and versatile action camera you can buy, but for most people its predecessor offers better value. While the new sensor and front display are useful additions, the changes don't collectively represent a big leap over the Hero 8 Black.
Pros: 
  • 5K video delivers more detail
  • Front display is handy for vlogging
  • Improved battery life
  • New software tricks
Cons: 
  • Unresponsive touchscreen
  • Little improvement to 4K shooting
  • Still no 4K/120p mode
  • HEVC files need recent editing hardware

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★★ 5.0
Boosts in all the right places make the Hero9 Black the pinnacle of action cam excellence, but if you don’t need 5K, you may well be better off with last year’s model.
Pros: 
  • Better battery despite two screens
  • Sharp and stable 5K video
  • In-device horizon levelling
Cons: 
  • Overheats after 30 minutes of 5K capture
  • Slightly narrower field of view than Hero8 Black
  • Bulkier than the dinky Hero8 Black

★★★★ 4.0
GoPro's Hero9 Black action cam delivers excellent, stabilized 5K video and ups still quality, but not everyone should spend more when the Hero8 Black is still available for less.

  • Front-facing color LCD
  • Exceptional video stabilization
  • Up to 240fps HD slow motion
  • Time-lapse
  • buffering
  • and HDR imaging
  • USB-C charging
  • Strong app support
  • Compact and waterproof
Cons: 
  • You'll likely want to carry extra batteries
  • Subscription service adds recurring costs
  • Discounted pricing not available from all retailers

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★★ 4.6
GoPro’s slogan for the Hero 9 launch is “More everything,” and there really are enough new things here for that to feel fair. GoPro regulars will appreciate the higher resolution, while the new front screen fends off competition from DJI.
Pros: 
  • Great bundle price
  • Full color front display
  • 5K video and 20-megapixel photos
  • Improved battery life
  • Useful new shooting modes/features
Cons: 
  • Larger than before making some accessories redundant
  • Heavier than the (bigger) Max
  • No new slo-mo speeds

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★ 4.3
GoPro has been the industry standard for action cameras for over 15 years. It wasn’t until a few years ago that brands such as DJI and Insta360 began making action cameras with more features that challenged GoPro’s lead.
Pros: 
  • Crisp 5K footage
  • A useful front-facing screen
  • Still rugged build quality
Cons: 
  • More expensive than before
  • Slow HDR processing
  • Still needs a second battery for heavy use

★★★★★ 4.5
This is the most substantial update of the GoPro Hero Black range in several years. With 5K video, 20MP stills, 30% more battery life, improved stabilization and much more, the GoPro Hero9 Black is a formidable camera with a wide range of uses.
Pros: 
  • No need for waterproof housing
  • Dual Screen
  • 8X Slow-motion
Cons: 
  • Mods are expensive
  • Not great in low light

GoPro HERO9 Black CHDHX-901-RW review

★★★★★
Action cameras and going modular. GoPro’s latest attempt to get one-up on the DJI Osmo Action and the Akaso Brave 7 LE means a front display for vloggers and taking selfies, high-resolution photos and video grabs, but most importantly a removable lens cover.
Pros: 
  • All-new front display
  • Larger rear display
  • Excellent image stabilization
  • 20MP photos and 14.7 MP grabs from video
  • Stable connection to a phone
  • Easy-to-use app
Cons: 
  • Larger physical size
  • Batteries are not backwards-compatible
  • Touchscreen is laggy
  • Max Lens Mod costs extra
  • Hit-and-miss horizon leveling

★★★★★ 5.0
This year’s Hero 9 dwarfs every action camera produced by GoPro so far. You will find genuine improvements in the Hero 9 like the use of front-facing screen from framing self-shots, a removable lens cover, the ability to record videos at 5K, capturing stills at 20MP, and the much loved HyperSmooth...

GoPro Hero9 Black review

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Despite the fact the Hero9 Black is a bulkier camera than the Hero8 Black, gets hot when filming 5K video, and you need a Max Lens Mod to match (and better) its ultra-wide predecessor, GoPro’s latest is still going to be the best action camera for many. Its improved detail, jacked-up battery performance and richer feature-set all come together to make one of the most versatile bits of kit we’ve used. From a webcam to a vlogging tool, dirt track companion to a waterproof snorkel cam, it’s got you covered.
Pros: 
  • Better battery despite two screens
  • Sharp and stable 5K video
  • In-device horizon levelling
Cons: 
  • Overheats after 30 minutes of 5K capture
  • Slightly narrower field of view than Hero8 Black
  • Bulkier than the dinky Hero8 Black

★★★★ 3.5
“The Hero9 Black is as good as it gets, but its major improvements hold little real-world benefit over the Hero8.”
Pros: 
  • Front screen
  • Larger rear screen
  • Higher-capacity battery
  • Supports Max Lens Mod
  • 24MP stills
Cons: 
  • Bulkier compared to Hero8
  • 5K video feels pointless
  • Incompatible with Hero8 Media Mod
