Hi, can you clarify your question? What exactly you dont understand?

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Efficiency_Video_Coding

 

If the title of the recorded video clip starts with the letters GH ..... That means the codec is H264. If the video clip name starts with GX .... Means the codec is h265 (HEVC)

In normal video mode, if the compression format is "HEVC", HEVC information will be displayed on the LCD screen on the back of the camera.


However, in MAX lens mode, if the compression format is "HEVC", the HEVC guide will not be displayed on the LCD screen on the back of the camera.


When I shot a movie with 2.7K30FPS (16: 9) in MAX lens mode, I was confused because the compression format was "HEVC" without permission.


Please add the MAX lens mode table to the URL below.

No doubt that the person working tech support is not that actual website programmer.  Any changes would have to be suggested to marketing, who would then have to go through legal to push any changes through, they would then have to put a request in with the website developer who may be working on other things as a priority.  So sorry if things don't work quickly enough for you.

Rif.: Please tell me the video compression format of HERO9 Black in MAX lens mode.

Hi all,

 

I just bought the camera with MAX lens mod and noticed it as well.

 

The awkward part is that even the camera itself doesen't tell you what resolution/framerate is HEVC/H265 only when selected (and this happens while using the standard lens, so it's a feature), so one needs to test each one and see the results.

 

I posted this issue on Reddit as well, just to spread the word.

 

I really hope GoPro will fix that in a future firmware update, and let's hope that even the official Support link will be updated too!

After a few tests I discovered that only these 2 options are encoded in AVC/H264

 

  • 2.7K 16:9 60fps
  • 1080 16:9 60fps

All the other resolutions and framerates are encoded in HEVC/H265

I just noticed that the official Support page post doesen't show 1440p 4:3 for Standard lens as well, HEVC for all framerates.

For anyone interested I compiled a spreadsheet with an overview of the two encoders with both lenses, for NTSC framerate frequencies:

I don't know if it's permitted to post external links, I try!
