GoPro 9 Max Lens mod RAW photos

[ New ]

Is it possible to use the Max lens to take raw photos. I found another thread that seems to be locked, where someone was asking about this, but it sounded like the restriction was due to a mode setting. Can you disable "Max mode" and simply take a raw photo without the camera knowing that the Max lens is attached? 

 

If so, what is the field of view of the Max lens? Is it a fisheye greater than 180 degrees? I want to use a GoPro 9 with the Max lens to take fisheyes on a tripod to stitch to spherical. I currently have a Fusion but the resolution isn't great

Anyone know? I don't want to buy the camera just to try this and find out it's not possible

Hi @jackalopephoto

 

Raw output option is not available when Max Lens Mode is enabled.

For more information, you may check HERO9 Black - Max Lens Mod 

 

Thanks!

Why not? Can you prevent the camera from knowing that the Max lens is attached?
