If you get an error with the camera it will probably be down to the memory card that is being used.

The GoPro Hero9 has a memory card capacity of up to 256GB. Due to the increase in performance of the GoPro Hero9 I would suggest using cards that are 64GB or above.

There are few things a crushing as getting home from a sick day shooting with your GoPro and realizing that half of your content isn’t usable due to water droplets all over the lens.
