If you are considering purchasing a GoPro camera, the new Hero 8 Black maybe the first choice for you. But in fact, GoPro has brought a new machine called Max. From many perspectives, many people who will consider this machine is the successor of GoPro Fusion. However, GoPro Max 360 can do has which Hero 8 can do. Despite its seemingly professional posture, GoPro always believes that this is still a product for everyone.

The first thing to be sure is that Max can still record 360-degree images. However, its features and the functions that the accompanying software can achieve can also meet the needs of non-VR shooting. The extra lens and the more comprehensive view it brings, in addition to the panoramic view, also provide greater creative possibilities for regular video shooting.

GoPro Max 360 vs GoPro Fusion

Compared to Fusion, Max 360 is significantly smaller in size. In fact, when building the Fusion camera, the factory is more like putting two GoPro together, so there are problems with the design and post-production editing of the dual SD card. Max is a complete redesign, its smaller body is more conducive to carrying and fixing (there are also hidden fixtures like the Hero 8 Black), the new color touch screen also makes the ease of operation Upgrade.

GoPro Max 360 is the “Max” GoPro Hero 8

This machine borrowed a lot of features from the Hero 8 side, but GoPro managed to "maximize" everything. Max HyperSmooth, Max TimeWarp and Max SuperView, these three features "significantly" enhance Max's shock-proof effect with the help of extra lenses, of which TimeWarp's delayed play is also more abundant, and the vision of the new Digital Lens device is further expanded. .

 

On the Hero 8, SuperView will show what the photoreceptor took with 16:9, and on Max this mode will make the picture wider. As for the video specifications, Max can still record 5.6K@30fps in 360 degree mode, and 1440p@30fps or 1080p@60fps in non-panoramic Hero mode.

 

With the dual camera support, Max HyperSmooth can help Max achieve electronic shock protection with a single camera configuration that cannot collect the amount of data. At the same time, horizontal calibration has become easier, and the official claims that even with the user's large movements, the picture taken by Max can still stably control the reference level.

 

According to GoPro, Max will eventually support front-to-back mirror switching for continuous shooting, which should be very useful for today's popular vlog shooting scenes. However, what is still unclear is whether the device can perform double-recording or the effect of picture-in-picture. In addition, users can also use PowerPano mode to take panoramic photos on Max. Compared with the conventional method, it has the advantage of being able to take pictures of the front and back at the same time, so that there are no strange splicing errors.

GoPro Max 360 has six microphones

In the audio section, GoPro built a total of six microphones for Max, claiming to achieve the "gun-like microphone" quality radio level, and recording space surround sound in ambisonic format. Simply put, the previous Fusion was recorded in a 360-degree plane, and Max turned the radio range into a spherical shape.

GoPro Max 360 software

As for the software, it has not always been a 360-degree camera. GoPro claims to simplify the experience on Max. On the one hand, the design of a single memory card can avoid many unnecessary troubles. On the other hand, all image stitching and synthesis are now done directly on the camera, which also reduces the user's Less burden. In addition, according to the demo we saw before, in the mobile app, the user can easily set the next scene to appear in the screen, the transition can be handed over to the software easily. Of course, this part of the actual operation feels how it is difficult to evaluate before actually getting started.

GoPro Max 360 price and availability

Finally, in terms of listing information, unlike the Hero 8 Black, GoPro Max is currently only open for pre-sales, and will not be available worldwide until 25th of this month.
