GoPro Max Review | Trusted Reviews

 

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...

GoPro Max review: Everything an action camera should be

 

GoPro Max review: Everything an action camera should be

Really simple to shoot with ; Editing from the mobile app is easy ; Durable build ; Fits most existing mounts and handles

It's not cheap ; Video captured in Hero mode isn't as good as an actual Hero ; Sometimes struggles with exposure and shadows

One of the most versatile cameras to date, thanks to its dual-cameras setup and 360-degree footage possibilities It's easy to use and easy to edit footage afterwards. But if you want 'normal' video then the Hero 8 is your better bet.

GoPro Max review

 

Shoot first, frame later

Easy to edit 360-degree video ; Easy to edit 360-degree video ; Decent audio capture

16:9 video caps out at 2.6K ; Seam lines noticeable ; No 360-degree editor for Windows

If you need the shiniest, sharpest footage around, get the GoPro Hero8 Black - but if you want ultimate editing flexibility, nothing tops the Max

GoPro Max Review

 

Nothing combines action cam and 360 video as well as the Max. There's a clear direction for improvement but it gets so much right and makes working with 360-degree video an absolute dream

GoPro Max review: A superb 360 action camera that's also easy to use

 

The GoPro Max is a genre-defining product – the best 360-camera we've ever used

Incredibly flexible ; Great image quality ; Easy to use

Bulkier than a regular GoPro ; Can’t shoot in 4K

The GoPro Max is one of the most impressive action cameras I’ve come across in years and it’s certainly the most accessible, easy to use and practical 360-degree camera.

GoPro Max review: A smarter, easier-to-use 360 camera

 

360 still has some growing up to do, but the GoPro Max is a solid step forward for the format. While stitching and image quality don't take a giant leap forward, the Max offers a solid user experience and excellent mobile app.

Excellent mobile app ; Great image stabilization ; Good audio quality ; Rugged and waterproof ; Keyframe-based reframing controls

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.
