New GoPro 9 just came out.

Deal only for this week is $50 off the retail price. Includes 1 year of their subscription unlimited cloud storage, free camera replacement, and 50% off accessories. Also includes a 32gb sd card. This is actually a really good deal considering the camera replacement insurance alone is another $50.

https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/came...aster.html

For $50 more they also have a bundle that includes several accessories.

The major changes from the Hero 8 are a front-facing screen (like the DJI), image stabilization now includes horizon stabilization, and it can record up to 5k video (vs. 4k)

I just ordered one and will report back on the real differences.

I had two hero 7 blacks go "bad" on me and was engaged in a 1.5 year fight with them over replacements on and off, only to find out that two out of three Samsung memory cards I bought off of Amazon as FP slick deals were fakes, and actually what caused my cameras to freeze, crash, fail to give me clear files at random. I felt like an idiot. I was so sure it was GoPro's fault.

Amazon gave me refunds for the cards even tho one was over a year old and I threw them in the trash.

Next memory cards I buy will be directly from Best Buy via price matching to Amazon.

That seems to be the best/safest solution.
Just adding two comments.

First, if you are already a gopro subscriber, they give you an additional discount on the camera. I am not, so I couldn't see what the discount actually was.

When you check out, they break out the subscription cost (49.99) separately from the bundle cost and ask you to acknowledge it. At first, I was confused and thought they were adding this to the total cost, but when I checked out, it wasn't added. I did have to pay tax, and 2-day shipping was free.
Glad they brought back the replaceable lens cover. That's the only thing i don't like about the Hero 8.

Doesn't look like it is - they are selling a hero9 specific one. I'm guessing the front-facing playback screen is larger than the lcd in the 8.

A few more comments.

Now that I've purchased the camera, and have the "subscription" it looks like all of the accessories are at least 30% off, and two of them are 50% off.

They've changed the battery again. It is not compatible with the 8. Looking at the specs, the 8 battery is 1220mah, and the 9 battery is 1750mah, significantly larger. They are claiming at least 30% more runtime. bummed my old accessories won't work but happy that it is at least for a good reason.

I went on a trip using GoPro 7 and it was a total disaster. The GoPro froze several times when taking videos. I had to pull the battery out each time to reset and lost the footage. Finally ended up using my phone.

I am hoping they fix this issue with the GoPro9.

Looks like the price is the same for the trade up as well when you add the subscription to the cart https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/tradeup

IME, you will know if you have a dud within a few minutes of use. If it works ok it will survive a whole lot. It's sad that qc/manufacturing is so poor though.

Ooh, I bought Costco's HERO8 bundle [costco.com] a couple weeks ago for $290. A few days later I learned about the HERO9. (This was sort of an impulse buy, not well researched.)

If the HERO9 was $400+ by itself like predicted, it's easier to say no it's not worth the difference. If a similar bundle is $400 including the year of subscription, it's more tempting to return the 8 and upgrade to the 9.

*The Costco bundle includes a case which the HERO9 bundle doesn't, but that's not a dealbreaker.


The front screen is nice, and 20mp photos are a big plus... and "30% more battery life" answers my biggest complaint after a week with the HERO8.

So the trade-in offers no greater discount?

The HERO9 shows up as 350 including the year of subscription (300 for the camera, and a separate 50 for the subscription), though it looks like tax on the full price of the camera (I was charged 45 bucks tax)
