A:AnswerWhen shooting in 5K and using a 128GB SD card, you should get about 4 hours and 12 minutes of recording time on that card. For the other cards, you can multiply that time based on the size of the card you're using. For the sizes you've listed, for example, you should get about 8 hours and 24 minutes on a 256GB card and 16 hours and 48 minutes on a 512GB card. Sandisk and Samsung cards are on our list of recommended cards, but there are different models within each of these brands, so you will want to check with GoPro's list of recommended cards to make sure the card you're using is recommended.
A:AnswerNo, a subscription is not needed to use the HERO9 Black. A subscription will offer some benefits to your experience with the GoPro like the cloud storage, premium editing tools on the new Quik app, discounts, and camera replacements, but you can use the functions of the HERO9 Black fully with or without a subscription.
A:AnswerThe batteries for the HERO9 Black are unique to that model, so batteries from previous GoPro cameras will not work with the HERO9 Black. Likewise, because the HERO9 Black is a different shape and size than previous models, accessories like dive housings that enclose the camera will not work between the models. However, nearly all other accessories, including most mounts and the USB-C charging cable, will work with both the HERO5 and the HERO9.
