The MAX supports multiple modes for creative video and photos, such as PowerPano mode which can take 270° still photos without distortion. TimeWarp mode allows you to record in standard HERO mode with a variable speed function; you can slow down then speed up your footage in real time with one tap. The MAX supports the HEVC video format which records very small files while preserving image quality, saving you precious space on your SD card.
There are four lens sizes to choose from for just the right angle: Narrow, Linear, Wide, and Max SuperView for those extremely wide shots. HyperSmooth provides smooth stabilization for your action shots featuring horizon leveling within the camera for super-steady footage in both HERO or 360 modes. To complement the camera's spherical video, spherical audio is also recorded. Using six microphones, you can record sounds from all directions, creating a totally immersive 360° surround-sound video playback experience.
Similar to its cousins the HERO7 or HERO8 Black, the MAX supports live streaming to social media in 1080p. It's also waterproof to 16' to protect it during light water shoots and from splashes and rain. The camera's touchscreen provides quick and easy management, but when your hands are full, the MAX understands 14 voice commands in over ten languages and accents. Just say "GoPro, take a photo" and your MAX will use your current settings to snap a photo. It also features USB and HDMI output ports to offload your video to your computer.
The MAX comes with a 1600mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, a curved adhesive mount, two protective lenses, two lens caps, a mounting buckle, and a USB Type-C cable for charging. Recording on the MAX requires a minimum class 10 or UHS-1 microSD card up to 128 GB in size.
