    gopro hero 9 Firmware 1.5 release

    Yes I was glad to see support for the external mic adapter. I have one and it's been useless with the 9 until now. Opens up more possibility's for third party cases.

    Hero 9 Sunset Time-Lapse

    Time-lapse video mode. 2 second interval. ISO 100 Min/Max. 5500 White Balance. Not much, if any difference than those shot with my H8. However, the H9's ability to start/stop automatically is a big deal to me.

    GoPro HERO9 Black: Here's what you need to know

    I've had my 9 for a couple of weeks now. I do quite a few time-lapse captures. For me the big gain is the ability to pre-schedule the start time and the duration of the capture. So far it has worked flawlessly. Nothing worth posting. But it's a big deal for me for my time-lapse sessions. Bill

    GoPro Hero 9 leaks

    A bit excited. I've bought each "Black" iteration from the 3 to the 8. Last rumor that I read was a price increase from previous years. Should not have long to wait.

    At least. Higher the better for stability.

    New GoPro Live Streaming Service

    Tried it on my Hero 8 after the firmware update. Using the GoPro Plus option. Seemed to work fine. Although the latency seemed to be about 4 seconds. With camera and cellphone on the same high speed WIFI network. Some screenshots of the setup and results. (They are in reverse order.)

    Hero 9 yeah talk is what is out there so why not add to this rumor

    I've read that the H9 beta testers have to return their cameras by the end of this month. So I assume that it will be released by November. More than likely I'll get one. Especially if GoPro again offers the trade-in program.

    Best software/tips

    There are many good video editing programs out there. I suppose the hardware depends on what you anticipate doing. Long or short GoPro clips? 4K? Producing YouTube and/or Facebook content? Your Dell can probably handle the above if it is relatively new with decent specs. I use a Desktop PC and...

    Need suggestions for my ride idea...

    I would do the in-camera Timewarp for the best stability and smoothness. Maybe sign up for GoPro Plus as a kinda camera insurance. " As a Plus subscriber, if you damage your GoPro, we'll exchange it– no questions asked. " Bill
