GoPro's new Hero9 Black camera brings some big changes. It is using a new 23.6-megapixel sensor — the first sensor upgrade since the Hero3, in 2012. Its new battery offers 30% more power than its predecessor. While the form-factor is familiar, there is now a color LCD on the front that gives you a preview.

Thanks to the new sensor, the Hero9 can now shoot higher-resolution videos — up to 5K. Photos also look better. There are also new modes and accessories that enhance the shooting experience.

While the Hero9 in some ways isn't a giant leap from last year's model, in other ways it is. These improvements have allowed the Hero9 to step out of the action cam relegation to become a powerful, standalone camera for everyday use. It won't beat the higher quality of a DSLR with a larger sensor and quality lens, or the convenience of a smartphone, but there's plenty of traits unique to the Hero9 — rugged exterior, small size, and fun shooting modes — that you won't find elsewhere.

If you've been holding out for a souped-up action cam, the Hero9 Black is it. And like all Hero cameras, it's fun to use.
