Are you waiting for a GoPro Max 2 in 2022? GoPro has finally confirmed what I’ve been saying, which is that there will be no GoPro Max 2 in 2022. And in this video, learn how to use a new shooting technique (similar to Insta360 X3 Me Mode) for GoPro MAX.
GoPro’s official Twitter account tweeted that there is no GoPro Max 2, at least for 2022. And in case you had any doubt about whether they might introduce a 360 camera with a different name, they flatly said that GoPro has no new 360 cameras in 2022.
And if you were wondering whether it was just some misinformed intern who was accidentally given control of GoPro’s Twitter account, GoPro said the exact same thing to at least three other people:
In case you’re keeping track, GoPro released the Omni in 2016, the Fusion in 2017, and the Max in 2019. A gap of three years (and counting) between product releases might not sound much, but for 360 cameras, it is a significant amount of time.
GoPro has repeatedly affirmed that it will continue to produce the GoPro Max but the silence is particularly defeaning given that GoPro released two new product lines this year — Bones and Mini — on top of its release of the Hero 11.
My hypothesis is that GoPro wants to wait for a significant improvement between the Max and its successor before releasing a new 360 camera. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
