More pixels than the display you’re using

Last year’s GoPro Hero8 Black came with minor tweaks that improved the already capable line-up of action cams. The Hero9 Black just takes that same philosophy and cranks it up a notch. Firstly, the black and white front screen has been booted and replaced with a much-needed colour display. The sensor has been eating megapixels for lunch and dinner, packing a mighty 23.6MP and dishing out 5K video results. You can even push the photos to 20MP and if you dirty the lens, it's removable. GoPro says you can squeeze out 30% more battery from this dinky cam and it can take a dunking of 33ft. Other than that it’s got all your software smarts from the previous-gen but with a tad more oomph to them. HyperSmooth 3.0 is now with in-camera horizon levelling. And if you slap on the Max Lens Mod, it can capture the entire cast of Hum Saath Saath Hain in a single frame. It'll cost you ₹49,500, adventures sold seperately.
