Go Pro Hero 9 Black is the latest action camera from GoPro. And it is now officially launched in Nepal. This new action cam has some updates which was needed as compare to predecessor Hero 8. There is a 5K resolution for video recordings, front-mounted LCD, and many more including bigger battery. So, let’s find out full specifications, new features and the price of GoPro Hero 9 Black in Nepal and it’s availability.
GoPro Hero 9 Black Overview
The all new addition on the device is the front screen which is the one thing that all GoPro users had been waiting for. The Osmo Action and Brave 7 LE have a front display which are the competing device. Thus, it’s a best step that GoPro has taken to include front screen.
Talking about the display, front screen is of 1.4-inch. Which will help users to take better shots and videos. However, the front display isn’t touch-enabled though. Also, users do get the option to choose what to display on front screen. The options are; center close up, Actual Screen, Status only, and off.
Furthermore, the rear main screen has changed and comes with size of 2.27-inches. The increase in size gives users bigger and better on-screen buttons and in-camera viewing experience.
This new Hero 9 comes with a new 23.6 MP sensor. This new sensor is capable of shooting 5K videos at 30 fps or 24 fps. Most of us have thought that this new device will probably just improve the frame rates for 4K videos. Furthermore, user will also be able to capture stills at 20 MP. However, 1080p videos still max out at 240 fps, 2.4K at 120 fps and 4K at 60 fps.
Another huge update is the bigger battery capacity of 1720 mAh. Hero 8 offered 1220 mAh of battery capacity. The company also claims that, this will result in 30% more usage. Furthermore, the battery is also optimized for cooler conditions.
The Hero 9 Black is heavier at weighing 158 grams than its predecessor, the Hero 8. Also, it outweighs the heavier GoPro Max. It is all because of the bigger battery and the additional screen.
Similar to Hero 8, there are plenty of mods for the Hero 9 Black as well. Light mod, display mod, and media mod are all compatible with this new device. However, Hero 9 Black comes with huge upgrade and has a removable lens cover. Which means user can add other lenses on top of Hero 9.
For instance, the Max Mod on Hero 9 will reproduce the capabilities of the GoPro Max’s lens. Which means users will be able to get better HyperSmooth, wider FOV, and 360-degree horizon lock.
Features of Hero 9
The new features are HyperSmooth 3.0 and TimeWarp 3.0. The HyperSmooth gives the best stabilization with the in-camera and with the TimeWarp 3.0, new half-speed option is provided. Both of them are compatible with the in-camera horizon leveling. However, it is only available in Linear mode for videos.
Similarly, Scheduled Capture, Duration, and HindSight are the new power tools included in this device. Scheduled Capture helps in scheduling the time when the recording should start. Similarly, Duration Capture allows you to specify when to turn off the recording. And finally, with HindSight, users will be able to catch something that happened just before starting to record. It is basically a combination of the loop recording option and LiveBurst.
