GoPro Max Review
The 3-Minute GoPro Max Review
The Maximum WOW Factor
The GoPro Max will be released on the 24th of October but is available for pre-order from the 1st. GoPro has set the standard for action cameras with their ruggedness and waterproofing, with a price we all can afford.
The GoPro Max shoots video and images in a full 360° range, now making panoramic shots easier than ever before. The stabilization of the video mixed with the HERO mode that levels out the horizon giving you a cinematic experience.
The GoPro was notorious for not having good sound quality but with the Max, they changed that with 360° audio quality due to the 6 microphones they have placed all around the GoPro Max. This has given the Max the best stereo sound in GoPro history, directional audio for vlogging, and offers noise reduction from wind.
Features & Design: 4/5 | Performance: 4/5 | Value: 5/5 | Battery Life: 4/5
The Max is the upgrade from Fusion, offering a larger screen and removed the small screen in the front for a microphone to give better audio quality. This new screen upgrade now allows for touch screen capabilities and this now means there is no need for a phone to change the shooting mode and parameters it can all be done on the device now.
Some might criticize the lack of dual memory card slots which will limit your recording time. The bit rate is also not as advanced as the Hero 8 Black and does not record in 2.7K/4K 100Mbs giving you a lower quality but requires a lot less storage space and a single highspeed SD card can be used.
Is it for you?
Whether you are a casual action sports enthusiast or a professional, this camera will give you the best 360° video and audio results out there for this price range. With a wide range of functions from recording a live concert, vlogging or even taking pictures while in the waves the Max is for you.
What we like
The small size of the GoPro has always been one of its major selling points, and now the Max offers you even more with the ramped-up audio quality. The Max has been equipped with twin-lens to give you a full 360 view of your surroundings. The max has a unique looking lens set-up, this is due to GoPros spherical design this has finally come to be after they have been trying since 2015 to get a 360° camera out.
The Power Pano feature offers 270° 6.2MP panoramic photos in one shot. The Max also offers Spherical Video in 5.6K 30. The photo quality is now 16.6MP compared to the Hero 8 Blacks 12 PM.
What we don’t like
As far as we can see there is little to complain about this device offers more than expected and are never disappointed. Some complaints might just be had about the bit rate and loss of the extra SD slot. But really, we are now nit-picking.
Should you buy it?
If you enjoy getting out and being adventurous then this is the camera for you, perfect for adventure sports and even better for filming while in the surf as its panoramic shots and 360° video gives you a fully immersive view of the waves as they crash over you.
