Just a year after the announcement of the Hero8 Action camera, today GoPro has released the HERO9 Black. Boasting a powerful new feature suite, including HindSight, and supports live streaming and Webcam mode as well. Add in HyperSmooth 3.0, built-in mounting, and 30% more battery life for more of everything—in a camera that’s tough as nails and waterproof as ever. Available mods including the ultra-wide Max Lens Mod, Light Mod, Display Mod, and Media Mod expand your creative options even more.

The new Hindsight feature is designed so that you’ll never miss a moment again. This powerful new feature captures video from 30 seconds before you press record. Imagine your little leaguer gets her first base hit. As she sprints for first, you press record. HindSight will capture the 30 seconds of video before you hit the shutter button—and everything after—until you stop recording. Think of it as an even more powerful “live-photo” like you can produce with your iPhones!

The Hero9 has a 23.6MP sensor capable of shooting 5K video and 20MP photographs. It also shows a new frond display that delivers a live preview for easy framing (Vloggers rejoice!), and a standard, yet improved rear touch screen with touch zoom providing fast and intuitive control.

Like it’s predecessor, it also has a built-in flip-out 2 prong mount on the bottom of the camera, letting you quickly and easily attach a wide array of accessories available from GoPro and supported manufacturers.
