GoPro Subscribers Save $100 on HERO9 Black at GoPro.com

We’re thrilled to announce HERO9 Black featuring more everything, available globally starting today. With this new GoPro, you’ll find a new sensor that delivers 5K video and 20 megapixel photos, next-generation HyperSmooth 3.0 video stabilization with in-camera horizon leveling, a new front-facing display, a larger rear display, 30% more battery life, and a Max Lens Mod accessory that brings Max HyperSmooth video stabilization and Max SuperView ultra wide-angle photo and video to HERO9 Black. HERO9 Black retails for an MSRP of $449.99, or $349.98 with a one-year subscription to GoPro. Existing GoPro subscribers can also take advantage of the $349.98 pricing at GoPro.com.

HERO9 Black — the new GoPro with more everything.
“HERO9 Black reflects our commitment to delivering what our customers have been asking for, including more value for their money,” says GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman. “HERO9 Black is a beast of a product, and GoPro subscribers can get it for $100 off at GoPro.com while also enjoying unlimited cloud storage of their GoPro footage, up to 50% on everything at GoPro.com and no-questions-asked camera replacement. And we’re not done, with more value adds coming to GoPro subscribers later this year.”

New HERO9 Black packaging - no plastic, travel case.
And there’s one more announcement, too, and this is perhaps the most exciting in the long run: We’re eliminating plastic from HERO9 Black’s packaging and adding value. HERO9 Black will come in a high-quality travel case that fits additional mounts and accessories. It doesn’t stop there, either; this is an initiative we will be implementing to all GoPro cameras going forward!

“Reducing as much plastic as possible from our business is a priority for us,” Woodman says. “We’re excited to package HERO9 Black in a high-value travel case instead of traditional wasteful packaging, and we’re committed to doing the same with the rest of our cameras by the end of 2021.”
