Hypersmooth Max vs Hypersmooth 2.0?

Is there an actual differens between the hypersmooth in the Max camera and Hero8 camera? Or is it just a marketing/naming convetion thing?

 

I understand that it´s two different type of cameras but, if it´s the same result with both, then i think the Max is where i´ll put my money :)

Re: Hypersmooth Max vs Hypersmooth 2.0?

Theoretically, the MAX will have better stabilization (although the HERO8 Black is crazy good). Because the MAX can record in a much larger FOV, it has way more room to play with to make adjustments for stabilization.

 

As far as HERO8 Hypersmooth is concerned, check out these two videos.  The MAX should be even better, but how much better do we really need? Smiley Wink Smiley Tongue

Re: Hypersmooth Max vs Hypersmooth 2.0?

I´ve seen the different fotages from the hero8 in regards to hypersmooth, but i´ll have to wait to see the MAX in action before i decide.

It could be better, but could be worse as well :)

Re: Hypersmooth Max vs Hypersmooth 2.0?

For stabilization? It's impossible for the MAX to be worse (considering the same processor and engineering is being used). Stabilization is obtained by cropping in on a larger image and using the created boarders to adjust for stabilization. Since the MAX is using much wider lens (and in the case of 360 footage capturing literally every angle), it has much greater boarders to use for stabilization (which is why GoPro states that MAX has even better stabilization than HERO8).
