UPDATE: The HERO10 Black is now out, and uses the same body as the HERO9. So the dimensions for the HERO10 Black are the same as those for the HERO9 Black, and they will fit in the same housings and use the same port layout.

Some readers have been asking about the precise dimensions of the GoPro HERO9 Black so that they can try to determine whether it will fit in existing accessories.

GoPro provides this information in some useful illustrations, but it’s under the tech specs section, which isn’t all that obvious to find on their website. So I’m including the illustrations below.

Official GoPro Measurements of the GoPro HERO9 Black

These are the measurements they provide:

  • Total Height: 55.0 mm
  • Total Width: 71.0 mm
  • Total Depth (from back to the front of the lens port): 33.6 mm

They only provide the dimensions in metric, and they’re so precise that I don’t want to introduce potential errors with my own conversions to imperial. But it’s easy to find online conversion tools.

My Measurements

It’s obviously an incomplete list. They don’t seem to provide measurements for the depth of the lens port back to the main body or the precise positions of the buttons or ports, all of which might be important if you’re trying to see whether the new camera will fit in an existing cage or frame.

So here are my measurements of some of the missing dimensions. For these, I used digital calipers. I’ve tried to be as accurate with it as I can, but it’s possible they might be off by a millimeter or so here or there.

  • Body thickness (without lens port): 27.5 mm / 1.1 inch
  • Lens Port Width: 31.8 mm / 1.26 inches
  • Lens Port Height: 31.8 mm / 1.26 inches
  • Lens Port Depth: 5.3mm / 0.21 inches

The fold-down attachment fingers are centered on the camera, as they were with the HERO8 Black.

When you’re looking at the top with the lens pointed away, the shutter button is the same distance from the left as with the HERO8 Black. But the HERO9 Black’s extra width means that there’s more space to the right of the shutter button.

They’ve gone back to a removable lens port on this camera, and it’s slightly deeper than the non-removable lens port on the HERO8 Black.

Weight of the GoPro HERO9 Black

With the battery and a memory card installed (but no other attachments), it’s weighing in at 5.6 ounces / 159 grams.

The Latest Model: GoPro HERO11 Black

Released in the fall of 2022, the HERO11 is GoPro's current model. Well, actually two models.

First, there's the flagship Black that has all the bells and whistles and sets the standard for action cameras.

GoPro HERO11 Black
  • Shoot 5.3K60 & 4K120 video at up to 120Mbps bitrate
  • Take 27MP photos
  • Waterproof to 33ft / 10m without a separate housing
  • Built-in mount point
  • HyperSmooth 5.0 In-camera Video Stabilization creates smooth video without a gimbal
  • Shoot up to 8x slow motion

A couple of months later, they released Black Mini. It's smaller and shares many of the flagship models capabilities, but it's also stripped-down in important ways. For instance, it doesn't have a touchscreen, its battery isn't removable, and it shoots video only (so no photo mode).

GoPro HERO11 Black Mini
  • Shoot 5.3K60 & 4K120 video at up to 120Mbps bitrate
  • Compact form factor
  • Waterproof to 33ft / 10m without a separate housing
  • 2x built-in mount point
  • HyperSmooth 5.0 in-camera video stabilization
  • Shoot up to 8x slow motion @ 2.7K
  • Built-in battery
