GoPro may be including one of its most beneficial new functions to its main video camera line with the upcoming Hero 9: a front-facing color screen. The function, revealed in leaked renders gotten by WinFuture, wouldn’t be a first for GoPro; the business included such a screen to last year’s GoPro Max video camera. However that device is a 360 camera costing $500, so including one to the probably more affordable Hero 9– so filmmakers (and particularly vloggers) can see in full color what the shot appears like as they tape-record– is a good touch.
The leakages suggest the new front-facing screen would stay the very same size as the existing monochrome status display screen, which rests on the front beside the lens. That screen typically shows info like frame rate, resolution, and other recording info, but in this context could display an in-progress live feed while you record.
We do not understand too much else about the GoPro Hero 9 other than reports that the company might up the Hero line’s tape-recording quality from 4K to 5K We may be waiting a little while longer up until we hear anything main from GoPro.
