    Love the GoPro 9 overall. I’ve been using it mainly for open water swimming. The waterproofing is excellent as always, picture quality is superb. I’ve been using with a dome lens too which gives great shots at the water line. I’ve also used it for filming some medical procedures at work and it’s been great for this too.

    Limitations are that it can be a big fiddly in terms of switching between settings when using under pressure and the interface between smartphone and tablet can be a bit patchy as well. The software is otherwise great I love the ability to capture stills from the HD video.

    Overall a great little camera – great value now that price has dropped & highly recommended

    I love when you switch between the three modes, Video, Photo and Time Lapse these words appear Clearly and briefly on the screen so it is clear what mode you are in. This is especially advantageous if you are underwater and like me need reading glasses.
    Video and Photographic image quality is excellent.
    Battery life is extremely poor though, even by just checking the settings it’s eating the battery!

    I got this so i could record my daily commute to work and maybe start creating youtube vids again. The camera is easy to use and has an app which allows you to transfer files wirelessly. Its also water proof from the get go so no need for cases to make it more bulky. The picture quality is decent and sound is okay its what youd expect from a Go pro product. My only problem is every time i remove the battery its then asking for the time to be set again which on a tiny screen can be fiddly. Only reason i take battery out is i found leaving it in drains the battery when the camera is turned off. Im guessing thats because its not really off as a quick press of the shoot button and camera turns straight on and starts recording. Apart from that little annoying thing i find this camera to be a great addition to my daily ride and has helped me capture some decent footage and will definitely come in handy in the case of an accident.

    Good camera, Get about 90 or so mins of battery life

    The first one came and the case it comes in was empty with no camera or accessories (I assume the delivery driver or Amazon worker had taken it) but Amazon quickly sent out another for next-day delivery

    Golden Review Award: 10 From Our UsersSo over all, I think it is amazing. So I have previously used a GoPro hero 5 session, which for me was good as I use it for go karting and filming sessions out on track for tik tok, or analysing my racing to see where I improved. However, it didn’t have a screen so I could only look at it whilst I was home on my computer, or had to use my phone ,which wasn’t so reliable to due to connection issues, so I couldn’t get real time feedback from either staff or work out where I think I was going wrong, and could improve myself. With this one, it thankfully does have a screen which I have used both times I’ve gone since using the product. I like how it has a setting which makes it so both screens turn off on their own after 2 minutes.
    This really saves battery life and I find after filming with it, it goes from a full charge to around 60% after 2 x 15 minute sessions. For days.
    WhenI’m out longer I’ve also brought a spare battery and charging dock, which is one of the features I love so much about this GoPro, the fact you can change the batteries out rather than having an internal battery which you need to charge. It just makes it so much more versatile and means that now I can use it for however long I want without fear of it dying on me. Could definitely see this being a massive help when I possibly go off to places for karting and do multiple sessions where my current GoPro wouldn’t have coped. The imagine quality is amazing, however I tend to use just the 1080p setting but 5k does work great.
    I was also slightly skeptical about the imagine stabilisation when I first read about it, not thinking it would be any good, but I’m pleased to say it is! It makes the images so much smoother, and even when I’m either running around, or racing the moving my head about where my GoPros attached, it does an amazing job, especially compared to my Hero 5 session.
    I haven’t noticed the overheating issue as much, which could be due to the fact of I only run it for a maximum of 15-20 minutes at a time, and only use it on battery power. However, I can’t see this being much of an issue unless you run it as a webcam which this model does support. My main solution would just simply by a specific webcam, or DSLR camera and use that instead, rather than a GoPro.
    I would definitely recommend using a 64/128Gb memory card with this, as it does eat through memory. Usually I get about 2 1/2 hours worth of footage with 64Gb which once again isn’t an issue, but I definitely wouldn’t recommend anything smaller, especially if using extra batteries as it is a micro SD card which if you’re anything like me, are aware they’re soooo easily lost, which can cause so much heartbreak. Especially if you have just busted out an amazing lap beating your Pb and want to review the footage when getting home, only to find you lost your SD card.
    All in all would definitely recommend to anyone!!!

    Golden Review Award: 7 From Our UsersHad many cheap versions of action cameras over the years and finally took the leap and purchased this. The difference is night and day, I’m blown away by the quality of the GoPro and the videos it produces! Don’t waste your money on the alternatives and just purchase a Hero. Battery life isn’t the best but you can get various aftermarket battery bundles on Amazon for around 30. Highly recommended!

    Golden Review Award: 7 From Our UsersI 3D printed a mount and used the fixings that came with the camera. The quality is amazing and it works perfectly. So easy to set up and connects to your phone to backup video/photo.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Used for my MTB riding.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersI’ve had this a while now – it is a decent camera and surprisingly has a reall good mic installed – we record rehearsals – heavy metal – it records the noise excellently. It uses batteries though on average one per every 2 – 3hrs. And they get hot. Other than that its solid. Can’t knock it. I have the media kit attached not sure if that helps with the recording but thats also a great addition.

    Golden Review Award: 6 From Our UsersThis thing is just brilliant. My favourite GoPro so far and at the right price in my opinion.
    I’ve had a few GoPros over the years and they can be hit and miss, but that was because the tech was still evolving. My last ones were the 6 and the Session. The Session was awful. The 6 had some cool features, but eventually I was tired of using them and put my love for GoPro to bed for a few years.
    Then this came out.
    Every time I use it I find something new It can do and it never ceases to amaze me. Horizon levelling/locking the frame rate to res ratio. The modular system, the battery life… I could go on.
    Well done GoPro…you have won my heart again.

    Golden Review Award: 10 From Our Users– – Delivery – –
    The delivery was a bit pants. From my understanding, Amazon deliver it to a secondary delivery company and when they plan on delivering it to you, they ‘scan it out’ which sends a notification to Amazon who in turn send you a code for confirmation on delivery. Unfortunately it took 3 attempts and 1 of them they forgot to scan it out so we never had a code. Amazon compensated me with a voucher which was nice of them.

    – – Storage- –
    We are using a 128gb micro card which we’ve noticed is a bit temperamental. The card itself is fine but the amount of space the GoPro says it has is inaccurate. I was playing with the camera and deleted all media but the amount of storage space kept going down. This changes with a fresh battery which doesn’t make sense.

    – -Battery – –
    You get approx 80 minutes of recording time per battery. It goes down quite quickly when turning it off and on in between films.

    – – Features – –
    Time lapse is a dream. It speeds everything up and all you have to do is record. It’s a feature you can experiment with.

    Photos work well. Not as good as a DSLR but still reasonable quality.

    The video quality is utterly brilliant. The stabiliser makes it professional movie quality; It’s better than I expected. The sound is very clear too. There are options to change the wide lens from almost fish eye to standard kit lens. The front screen is useful for framing and a great addition.

    It’s not the easiest to navigate and I am used to DSLR cameras and manual settings. The screen is a bit small or temperamental for my fingers. It’s probably my only real criticism of the screen.

    Golden Review Award: 49 From Our UsersEarly days, and this is my first action camera, but very happy so far with the camera itself, the quality of videos it takes (not tried photos yet), and the official app as well as the ease of creating pretty slick-looking “story” videos. Had some great fun using it already.

    However, if this is “the new and improved big battery”, then wow the previous ones must have been just useless. Went for a 15k bike trails ride today (admittedly using 4k superwide and boosted smoothing) and by halfway it was ready down to 28% battery, so I had to stop/start it on the way back – and it still didn’t last until anywhere near the end of the ride.

    Mine also refuses to accept it can use the final 15% or so of the battery and just turns itself off every time…

    Great camera, but just make sure the incredibly limited battery life fits your requirements – as I was expecting a LOT more.
