Question
What is Linear field of view (FOV)?

Where does it apply?
  • MAX
  • HERO8 Black
  • HERO7 Black
  • HERO6 Black
  • HERO5 Black
  • HERO5 Session
  • HERO4 Black
  • HERO4 Silver

Answer
Linear field of view (referred to as "lens" on HERO8 Black and MAX) captures a straight horizon with a more natural perspective. This mode eliminates the barrel distortion (fish-eye effect) typically captured by your GoPro's wide-angle lens, without compromising image quality.
