Hi guys. Just made a quick edit of my yesterdays winter session with GoPro max mounted on Ugo mount (it was a bit elevated with gopro 2 chains making 90 degree hand to make ugo mount take less of perspective). Next time I will place mount just close to the Y seperator, should be much nicer perspective I think. Unfortunately, didnt manage to capture any tricks, since my gopro was battery drained after turning on itself (yes, there is bluetooth bug in current firmware..). Anyways, I hope you like it.

Blimey, things are really getting interesting now.

Hey Windsuks, I just watched Air Photography's Youtube unboxing of this new camera.
If this turns out to be problem/glitch free, I'm going to get one. I was VERY close to buying a GP Max and am glad I waited.

Any (amateur from one of us) video with the Hero 8 horizon levelling when used as a linecam?

Miss that, havent seen any in here.

Would also be nice to see how it works when only having the water surface and not the horizon in view, t.ex when kite is looped up high :D

Awesome if it works :thumb:

Just ordered mine. It looks like it ticks all the boxes for me. Espcially that it works underwater. The Go Pro Max is cool, but the fact that it does not work underwater is crap, so will be selling mine if my new Insta360 R really works as advertised.

Gunnar, why doesn't Max work underwater? And don't you need waterproof case for Insta?

The footage is blurred to hell on the max when it goes underwater. From the test shots I have seen in reviews of the Insta360R it is clean. No the Insta 360 is waterproof to 5m without a case.
