Hero 9 monitor on phone during recording

[ New ]

Why can't I monitor my Hero9 with my phone or tablet while recording a video? It says "Preview not Available"

 

I can do this with my DJI Action and all of my mirrorless cameras.

 

It is a necessary feature!

 

It lets me precisly aim my camera when filming with a gimble from low angles or when on a pole shooting from out of the sunroof.

Hello @harveys580. The live preview in the GoPro App while recording using HERO9 Black is not supported as the camera needs extra energy to perform its processes. Sending live feed over Wi-Fi while recording will not be possible.

Very dissapointing, this will limit the Hero9's usefullness for shoot RealEstate Interiors.

 

They should find some way to address this limitation, as other manufacturers have.
