As far as GoPro future products are concerned, the Founder and CEO Nick Woodman stated, “We grew our category from scratch”. “There was no camera that was going to allow me to film myself and my friend while we were surfing”. “So I went to work on this idea to strap a camera to my wrist, and the prototype worked so well that the lightbulb went off, and I went, “Wow!”.

With the launch of Hero 9 black camera for 2020, you will be able to shoot 5K video and also “snap 20-megapixel” images that are still.
Two prominent “performance upgrades” that you can see in GoPro Hero9 include improved battery life and better photo resolution.
As far as battery life is concerned, the company has stated that you will be able to enjoy “30% video capture time” from the improved battery. This feature is definitely going to be of immense help especially when it comes to action camera.
Reviews related to all GoPro products are more or less positive. The one downside of Hero 9 is that you will not be able to capture more than 30 frames. Also, while you shoot at 5K, the majority of the mobile devices will not be capable enough to allow you to preview what you have captured. For that, you have to take down the footage on your desktop or laptop.
However, with the newly added features to the GoPro Hero 9, the benefits far outweigh the downside. Vlogging enthusiasts sure are excited about the new GoPro release date.
