Re: GoPro Max 360 "Camera Busy" message v1.40.0

@rockyriver72484, @sharphero0187, thanks again for the prompt responses. I reached out to the team and this appears to be a normal behavior of the app/camera to help improve the camera performance in 360 mode, particularly in terms of stabilization.

Can we get an option to switch the improvement on and off in order to get the live preview while recording, as I shoot a lot of stuff from static positions and need to see what's going on while shooting.

@sharphero0187, this isn't currently an option in the app. MAX camera captures everything around. After filming, you can take creative control of your spherical footage using the app -- see How to Use Reframe in the GoPro App.

Anyhow, we appreciate the insight as it can help us build a better experience with our products and applications. We'll relay this information to the team in charge. Let us know if anything else comes up. Stay stoked & have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!

Re: GoPro Max 360 "Camera Busy" message v1.40.0

Is there a phone/app combo that does allow this feature again? If I purchase an iPhone 11 would that have the power to view 360 video while filming? Is it due to my phones RAM or other features that this works no more? Or is this change affecting every phone style? Would love to have this again as it was great when filming from a stationary place.

It was an option before the update, so why take it away? Some of us use the MAX for precise narrative work, where we control everything and want to see the action as it unfolds not after.
