Yeap, you can always change the orientation in the app too. Also with max lens mod, you can put the footage at any orientation.

FYI, I bought the Hero 9 and returned it.

A few months ago, two friends and I purchased Hero 9s to use during canyon runs and city driving. All three of us were disappointed to learn that most of our clips were cut short and the cameras had shut off due to heat issues.

A quick search of "Hero 9 heat" will show you loads of owners complaining about the same thing. Thermal throttling kicks in and shuts the camera off to protect it. Some owners resort to attaching actual heatsinks to the camera, which is crazy.

Now, I would totally understand (but would still be disappointed) if the camera couldn't handle 80, 90, or even 100* weather. BUT, we were using the cams on a cloudy Los Angeles day, highs being ~65*F back in February. Customer service let me know that I can "point a fan at the Hero to cool the camera" to improve performance. No thanks.

I've had prior Heros, but returned this and will wait for future iterations that can address these issues. Thankfully, their CS is easy to deal with and fully refunded the camera cost and the 1-year subscription.

*Edit: GoPro says that heat issues may be caused by incompatible memory cards, but we confirmed that all three of our SD cards were on GoPro's "approved list."
Returned mine a few weeks ago for same reason, overheating. This things gets hot to the touch. How can so many support such a product. As some reviews stated if the camera shuts off what's the point of having it.
It says Hero 4 in OP.

You mean Hero 9?

Better deal than when I bought my 6 Black a few years ago for about $300 without any memory card, or float grip or anything like that.

I personally do not understand why people use GP... They all have issues. I have found them all to be unreliable. Too many times I have lost video due to corruption, freezes, shutting down, etc. I don't need a touch screen or dual color screens. Give me the longest battery life and everything I record... I don't need voice control that never works well or any other yearly gimmick... Sony action cameras are my favorite. I need to try DJI, but I keep going back to Sony.

Yep, this is a well known issue, and highly recommend everyone to wait until the next one, or buy the previous GoPro to save money - they all use the same processor as well.

Also folks should remember that next version (GoPro 10?) will likely release in September following their yearly release cycle. Considering that you could get the camera at $350 (with subscription) right after it release in 2020, I would certainly recommend to wait.

FWIW, I own two GoPro 9 and it's love/hate relationship. I love the picture quality and the colors (out of the box, I don't edit/color correct).Also horizon leveling and hypersmooth have been excellent. It's my favorite camera for videos.

It used to be very buggy for a few months after release, with frequent shutdowns where I lost some of my videos. Really frustrating. They appear to have fixed most issues with recent firmware updates. Haven't had random shutdowns for a while.

Haven't hit any major overheating issues yet. I've ran it for hours on my chesty harness or with a magnetic mount on the hood of my truck. It was fall/winter/spring time though, so maybe summer climate will stress it out more.

If you really need a GoPro right now, this is a great deal. If you are looking to upgrade from your current one, I would wait until fall.

BTW, I have Sony FDR-100V, DJI Osmo Action, DJI Osmo Pocket (and Pocket 2). I still prefer quality/colors out of GoPro 9. Everyone has their own preferences though.

Thanks everyone for posting your experiences, you saved me the hassle of returning it. Sounds like my experience with my overheating Blackvue car cam.
