Post by Tejasv Sharma

GoPro Hero 9 Black is one of the best action cameras in the market with amazing new features and front display in this device. Today, DJI and Insta one camera with amazing camera quality and features, this is why, the Hero 9 Black is opening a new front, by appealing to YouTubers and vloggers.
They just not added a front display but made it upmarket with adding an ability to shoot videos up to 5K resolution at 30fps and capture 20MP photos.
In this blog, we are going to discuss the features of Hero 9 black and is it really worth to get it at a price of ₹49,500?

Build Quality and Design

Though Hero 9 Black has the same design as its predecessors but now become little bigger and wider. It’s a tough build device which a metal on the exterior frame with rubber around the edges and on the front. It can resist in the water up to 33 feet due to its waterproof capability.
Like Hero 8 Black, it also has built-in mounting clips which are secured magnetically. In the new design, on the back, there’s 2.27-inch touchscreen of 320×240 resolution and they have also added 1.4-inch colour display which is very useful for YouTubers and Vloggers. The front display is helpful in correcting the frame as needed.

Perfect User Interface

If you ever used a professional DSLR camera then you pretty much aware of the sophistication of setting a frame. In Hero 9 Black, it is the best device in terms of usability as this device is so simple as turning the camera on, set the setting on the touchscreen and set the frame in no time.

Pictures are now more Detailed

This time GoPro has done a great job in increasing the camera to 20 MP from 12 MP in predecessors, this means now you shoot stills at 20 MP in JPEG or RAW with superb detailing. Though the picture quality is not more than the iPhone 12, it gives a tough competition to premium phone cameras.

Video Quality and recording options

As Hero 9 Black is an action camera so we cannot doubt the recording capabilities but it’s incredible. Now you can shoot up to 5K at 30 frames per second which is also very useful for vloggers and videographers for some cinematic shots and travel blogger like me which I hope I’ll never use.
The only thing you have to keep in mind is that if you are shooting in 5K then you also need a computer that can decode 5K videos and you also need a bigger SD card to shoot in 5K.

Bigger Battery to shoot Longer

This is one of the main reason that Hero 9 black is bigger from its predecessor due to its bigger battery. This time they have fitted 1720mAh battery which was earlier only 1220mAh in Hero 8. This will increase the shooting time of videos like time-lapse and 5K video which consumes more power and gives approx. 2 hrs of battery life if you are shooting in 1080p.

Should you buy Hero Black at ₹49,500?

Hero 9 Black costs ﹩400 which is nearly ₹33,000 and will come at a super-high price of ₹49,500 makes this device pricer in India but with amazing features like it has Hypersmooth 3.0, 5K recordings, bigger sensor and much more, you can buy this beast.
But if you can purchase from outside India like Dubai, USA, you will get at a much affordable price.
For me GoPro Hero 9 Black is a pick.

Stay Safe, JAI HIND??
