There's no question GoPro practically invented the action camera market and it continues to unveil innovative products year after year, but this year's release, the new Max camera, could honestly revolutionize the way someone captures, edits, and produces footage of their outdoor adventures. What makes it so special? The Max combines a single lens HERO camera with a 360-degree lens so it records everything around it—not just what's in front of the lens like a traditional camera—which opens up all sorts of possibilities in the editing phase. What's more, the camera is waterproof, can record in an amazingly high 5.6K resolution, it has four different digital lens options, a rock-solid stabilization setting, and it includes six microphones to capture 360-degree sound that matches the video. I was able to use a Max during a recent fishing trip and have to say that while the video and audio quality was bright and clear, the ability to pan, zoom, and transition to different points anywhere within a single scene was nothing short of amazing. While it carries a hefty price tag, the Max can open up an entire new world to any adventurer with even moderate video editing skills. Finally, if you gift a Max to someone with even a hint of video talent, don't forget to tell them about GoPro's Million Dollar Challenge, which ends January 12, 2020.
