GoPro Max review: Much more than a 360 camera

 

GoPro wanted to make a 360-degree camera that regular people might want, and in that regard, it's succeeded. The lower price point, the added flexibility of Hero mode, and improved stabilization definitely mean Max is a capable camera whatever action...

Superior stability ; Fun tools like 360 TimeWarp and PowerPano ; Improved app and UI ; Touchscreen for much easier setup

Fewer video modes ; Some low-light video “twitches” ; Stitching is good but not always perfect

GoPro Max

 

The 360-degree GoPro Max camera promises an easier, better streamlined workflow than last year's Fusion, but has more niche appeal than the affordable Hero8 Black.

360-degree capture. Also works as a single-lens camera. Intuitive software tools. Strong stabilization. Good in-camera audio. Waterproof without a case. Integrated mounting clips.

Effective resolution is really 1080p. Single lens capture tops out at 60fps. Requires more editing time to get the best results from spherical footage.

Bottom Line: The 360-degree GoPro Max camera promises an easier, more streamlined workflow than last year's Fusion, but has more niche appeal than the more affordable Hero8 Black.

The GoPro Max Makes Shooting 360-Degree Video Dead Simple

 

Two years ago, GoPro took its first stab at a 360-degree action camera with the GoPro Fusion. It wasn't a particularly good stab. It was bulky, it required two micro SD cards, and the footage was a royal pain to work with. In the intervening years,...

Versatility, so many angles from just one camera, easy-to-use apps, best-in camera stabilization (period).

GoPro Max Action Cam In-Depth Review

 

GoPro implies (and even says) that the new Max does everything the Hero series does, but extended “to the Max”. Unfortunately, that's not exactly true. Still, despite that, the GoPro Max is a hugely compelling upgrade over the previous generation GoPro...

GoPro MAX Hands-On Review: GoPro's Second, Much-Improved 360 Camera

 

The GoPro MAX ($499) is a versatile 360-degree video camera designed for all kinds of action.

The GoPro MAX merges all of the excellent features of the GoPro HERO 8, with respectable enhancements and 360-degree capabilities. At $500 it’s a rather pricey camera, but you’re getting more than just a GoPro or only a 360-camera. This device delivers...

The GoPro Max may be the action camera makers second 360 effort, but don't think of it as a sequel to the Fusion – it may be much more than that.

Easy to use;Simple editing;Good environmental audio capture;Multiple fields of view

Non-360-degree video quality not near Hero 8 Black level;Cheaper alternatives are now plentiful

GoPro Max review

 

The Max supersedes the two-year-old GoPro Fusion and improves upon its predecessor in every way

Mind-blowing 360 video ; 360-degree photos ; Sturdy construction ; It’s easy to get great results ; Fantastic app support ; Flippable screen view

Image stitching can look glitchy ; High price tag

GoPro Max review

 

Higher spherical video resolution and a simpler editing process is a major step forward from the Fusion, but is the GoPro Max polished enough to be your go-to action camera?

5.6K 360 video 360 video reframing On-camera stitching Digital stabilization Fits on existing mounts

Limited shooting modes No 360 slow-mo Low-res 2D footage Poor in low light/ underwater

GoPro’s new Max 360-degree action camera is hell-bent on bringing spherical video to the masses. A new suite of on-camera processing removes the major pain-points from 360-video production, and integrates editing and reframing tools into the GoPro...
