Leaked specs of GoPro Max from WinFuture:
As far as technical changes are concerned, little is known yet, but it is now clear that even the new model will not be able to record 4K videos at more than 60 frames per second. Instead, at least 120 FPS are offered at “2.7K”, which may be disappointing for some, but realistic for most users. Meanwhile, the battery remains everything the same , but here again a replaceable power storage with 1220mAh or almost 4.7 watt hours capacity is installed.
The new GoPro Max is the successor of the so-called GoPro Fusion, so a kind of action camera for 360-degree shooting. This will most likely provide similar features as the Hero8, but it has the same fold-out mounting arms on the floor – so here is no longer necessarily an adapter or a housing needed to attach the camera to a tripod or other type of holder. GoPro also misses the Max a side-mounted compartment in which the battery and memory card are housed. Of course, there is a second camera above the display on the “back”, unlike the Hero8, thanks to which the 360 ° shots become possible.
