Capture immersive, 360° videos of your adventures. Share rides, runs, lines, or whatever you chase in a level of detail that will make your friends and followers feel like they are right there with you. Super-wide-angle lenses on both the front and back mean the GoPro Max doesn’t miss a thing. Footage from both lenses is combined to output a smooth 5.6K 360° video. When 360° videos are played on a smartphone or tablet (something with an accelerometer and gyroscope), they are windows into your experience. The scene moves where the screen moves, transporting your viewers right into your video. When not shooting 360° videos the Max can shoot in HERO mode. This mode uses one lens to film, great for POV style videos or vlogging. With the lens and the screen on the same side you can frame your shots while talking right to the camera. HERO mode grants access to HyperSmooth Boost for the smoothest footage to ever come out of an action camera. Six strategically placed microphones deliver crisp, clear audio and signals are analyzed and filtered to reduce noise pollution. Voice controls mean having your hands full won't equal a missed shot, all you need to do is say the word. When paired with a smartphone or tablet running the free GoPro app the HERO8 Max lets you edit, synch videos, share content through social media and livestream adventures from your phone. GoPro Max’s technology gives your videos a level of immersion that will inspire instinctive cries and goofy grins like never before.
