GoPro releases HERO9, now with 5K

GoPro is synonymous with action cameras. If there is a cool extreme sport being shot, it is normally done on a GoPro. And now the company has released the HERO9 Black that is capable of shooting in 5K.

Now with a secondary 1.4-inch front facing screen allowing users to perfectly frame the shot as well as having a larger 2.27-inch traditional rear screen and 30 percent longer battery life over the previous generation.

Not just for shooting video, the HERO9 is able to shoot stunning stills thanks to its new 20MP sensor and never miss the shot again thanks to ‘Hindsight’ which captures up to 30 seconds of footage before you even start recording and ‘LiveBurst’ that captures 1.5 seconds before and after you press the shutter to find the perfect image or create a short video.

Max Lens Mod

Thanks to a detachable front lens, you can now add the Max Lens Mod to the HERO9 which brings ‘Max HyperSmooth’ Stabilisation 3.0 and ‘Max SuperView’ which is incredible image stabilisation for those truly awesome action shots as well as getting more into view with the 155-degree field of view angle.

The GoPro HERO9 will be a great addition anyone from outdoor adventurers, adrenaline junkies to YouTube creators and is available from £429.99 as a standalone product or £329.98 with a one-year subscription to GoPro which gives you unlimited cloud storage, a 32GB SD card, up to 50% off on their online store and a total camera replacement if needed.
