On October 1st, the sports camera brand “GoPro” released two sports cameras: the eighth generation GoPro (GoPro HERO 8 Black) and its first 360 panoramic motion camera-GoPro HERO Max.



Let's talk about the most surprising HERO MAX, which is a 360 camera with front and rear double shots, which can record clearer 5.6K video in 360 degrees.


The new Max SuperView ultra-wide camera mode (equivalent to Super-Super-Wide); live broadcast at 1080p resolution; automatic cloud backup of videos and photos.


However, the most important thing is: HERO MAX is equipped with six omnidirectional microphones.

GoPro official even said: HERO MAX will be the best stereo camera ever made by GoPro.


HERO MAX makes the module interface (two hinges) a retractable structure that can be picked up when not in use.

At the same time, GoPro also released three modular camera add-ons, all designed for the HERO 8 Black: a 1.9-inch  stand-alone display module for $80 that folds to the front or back of the camera; waterproof light module for $50; an integrated module (New Expansion Mod) that connects the display module and the light module to the top of the HERO 8 Black, as shown in the figure below.

The release time of these two new cameras is very interesting, let's take a look at the current situation of competitors' products.

On the evening of August 28th, insta360 released a "thumb size" panoramic camera. The camera weighs only 18.3g and has stereo anti-shake (Insta360 signature FlowState anti-shake technology). The price is 1288 yuan. It goes with the GoPro series sword and walks out of a panoramic video road.

Earlier, drone manufacturer DJI released the first sports camera Osmo Action in May this year, equipped with 1/2.312MP CMOS, can record 40 million pixels, 60 frames per second high-definition video, write speed of 100Mbps. Or you can shoot at 30 frames per second with HDR or 240fps with 1080p or 720p resolution. Osmo Action also has the new RockSteady stabilization technology (electronic anti-shake) adopted by Dajiang, and the resolution after cutting can reach 4060p.

In the face of the then-net GoPro HERO 7 Black, Osmo Action has a unique pricing strategy: 2,500 yuan.

After nearly half a year, GoPro brought the eighth-generation flagship and the first panoramic MAX to re-enter the sports camera stage, without any worry about the pressure of the other two competitors.
