The GoPro HERO9 action camera is more robust in almost every way: 5k video, larger battery, and a more robust 20-megapixel sensor. For $449, there is a lot of camera in a very small package. Becca Farsace has the full review.

I vlog on an iPhone but instead of upgrading to a new iPhone (12 Pro), I’m thinking of getting a Hero 9. Long term, it’s a big money saver. I run a wild camping channel. Most footage is outside. Would you recommend it as a main vlogging camera? Sometimes would be inside talking-to-cam footage too. Thanks.

I want to get an action camera for (eventual) travel and for hiking etc. I'm very tempted by the 360 (the bubble, the pano etc) of the GoPro Max but its quality is markedly worse than the hero 9... if i'm not going for a cinematic level quality, would the Max be ok or should I really just go with the 9?

Gopro 9 is missing a very important feature: Live Preview on the Gopro app is not supported while recording video. That feature was available in the previous versions. Most of the time I use my phone to preview what I am recording. By missing the said feature, I can no longer frame/record perfect shots when my Gopro is 20ft in the air on a monopod/selfie stick. Very disappointing.

Few important things are missing from the review: It will crash, much more often than you expect. The touch screen is super hard to use and will annoy you every day. The scheduled capture is not working. Of course GoPro won't admit it, but will "Improve" it with some not specified in time firmware update. The max lens mod wouldn't first screw to the correctly to the camera, after 100 tries and scrubbing metal from the lens body, it will eventually somehow will. GoPro support is of course friendly but useless and keeps repeating their scripts almost like bots.

With the GoPro9, GoPro silently removed the feature of having a live preview during recording on your phone via the GoPro App. Which was allready present on older models... I ran into this problem, contacted GoPro and learned that this feature is removed due to limited processing capabilities of the GoPro9 to handle both the recording as well as a live preview. So not just during the new 5K, but for all resolutions/framerates. Which is very odd as it worked in older models... So it seems 'MORE Everything...Except we forgot to mention that it's LESS for some allready existing features.... ' However, I don't see the removal of this functionality on the GP9 mentioned in any review, but for those who do expect to use the preview as in older models, it would be good to mention it in a review in order for potential buyers getting surprised and disappointed.

Current know issues: :Randomly turns itself on : Battery % state inconsistent. :Touch screen under sensitive : Runs hot on 4 or 5K :Remaining record time counter freezes : Freezes whilst recording :Doesn't like some usb charges, inconsistent charge. Good news: All these issues should be easily fixed with firmware updates.

*Stay away from GoPro Hero9 as it is not compatible with 3.5mm Mic Adapter. So we can not use our own microphone but we have to use gopro's media mod. GoPro does not want us to use our own microphone. they disabled the support to use adapter with the latest firmware 1.21. Be careful guys.*
