Here’s the comparison video:
Here is a zoomed-in view of each camera, side by side:
You can see that the Pro 2 has the most detail, although Qoocam 8k is coming surprisingly close for a camera that costs just 1/9th the cost of the Pro 2. As for the Qoocam and Max, Qoocam has a bit more detail, as shown in the green rectangular area. This result is consistent with the results of my comparison as well, where I found Qoocam to have a more detail than Max or Insta360 One X.
In addition to looking at detail, Hugh also compared the stitching, color, and the ability to focus at close distances.
You can also compare the cameras side by side using the 360 Camera Comparison Tool, where I added Hugh’s video to the list (#143). Just load the video on both the left and right side, and move the playhead to the segment for Qoocam 8k, insta360 pro 2, or GoPro Max. To zoom in, maximize a window, use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom, then restore the size of the window.
