Just note, this is how I set up my GOPRO HERO 9. You may set yours up differently, I am just giving you some tips in what is easiest for me.

    Definitely bookmarking this for when I buy one. Thanks for sharing your insights into the new model.

  3. Dariusz Bielecki on December 8, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Why am I even watching this video. I don’t have GoPro but you know what. I just enjoy watching your content 😜

  4. Bogomil76 on December 8, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Have a question: Does the touch screen suck?

  5. Matthew Andrew on December 8, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    You’re nice to watch

  6. Mango Cove Scuba on December 8, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    That touch screen is brutal! Thanks for the tips though!

    gopro 240 fps tesla lets go!

  8. TLY RIDER on December 8, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I use the GoPro hero8 on my helmet when motovlogging, so I am assuming for my use case the front screen may not be of much use. Do you see video quality difference between 8 and 9?

  9. Abraham Serey on December 8, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Nobody shows how the Go Pro records hands, or if it is used to take overhead shots. I need to record my drawing tutorials and would like to know what the GoPro 9 looks like. Would you be so kind to take a few shots or recommend the best camera for overhead shots. It may be helpful to others who wish to record their hands handling some objects.

    Thanks in advance for your material.

    My gopro 9 doesnt focus. Its looks like a samsung galaxy 3… What can i do:(

  11. Lazy_walk_Log on December 8, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    I see that Gopro’s shortcuts can be changed. I’m always looking to learn.
    I also want you to tell me, I’d like to know what the settings are for night photography. I shot at a lower frame rate, but I’m noticing the up and down blur when I use hypersmooth on my walking videos. Afterwards, the focus seems to run away from me.

    Quality vids. Hope you get the recognition you deserve.

    How to delete preset if i don’t need so much?

  14. Garine Thach / Điểm du lịch on December 8, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    how do you change 4:3 to 16:9 in gopro 9 ?

  15. Ioannis Dimopoulos on December 8, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Hello Jason, please your opinion for a mountain bike profile, can you suggest one?

    Cool video, nice production – music, background, gopro setup. 👍

  17. Andy on December 8, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    5:57 You’ve hit the nail on the head, the touchscreen sucks. Spoils what otherwise is an excellent camera.

  18. spartywarriors on December 8, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Push and hold when making menu changes. Surprised people don’t know this.

  19. Ryan Dylan on December 8, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Still loving my OSMO Action,lol. Great content applying to all camera settings in general anyway. How many time you said touch screen is….

  20. W kanale on December 8, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Hi Jason! I wonder what the answer will be from DJI. Osmo Action 2 is probably getting closer, we’ll see what it will surprise us with. Meanwhile, the GP9 screen response deserves a flogging penalty…

    LUT COLOUR CORRECTION FOR FLAT AND NATIVE: Jason Morris We are missing the best possible colour fidelity and dynamic range. GoPro blues, cyan, reds are really bad and the sensor has its size limitations. But to improve a lot recording in Flat COLOR and Native WB normal people can not colour grade native white balance, do it well is really difficult. But we have the solution: For more info please visit Gopro forums

    Hi I have an issue with my hero 9 . After powering off it is turning on itself a couple hours later . Sometimes i find it turned on so battery is almost empty. Go pro support advised to update manually an factory reset . I did it. But again promblem occurred.if I turn off Bluetooth from my phone it doesn’t occur. But I am not sure everyone who keeps their bluetooth turned on live this situation. Do you know anything about that issue and how to solve it ?

    Thank you so much again for going through these settings, Bro! I should’ve watched this before going out to test it. Agree with you on the low-light-level performance. Not the greatest.
