The maximum view range is 500 meters. No more no less.

Vents/Consumables/BiA would drive it up even higher.

Everything is listed as accumulative.

View range is unlimited, spotting range is capped.
445 or 450 too lazy to check.

view range is unlimited. The max you can spot someone at is 445m. If someone has a camo value greater than 0(everyone does) Then the higher view ranges come into play.

This, but note that view is not the same as spotting range.

At over 445m you can't actually use your view range to spot other tanks.  All excessed view range above 445m is good for is killing camo earlier.  So you get diminishing returns if you push your view range over 445m, because you can't spot anything over 445.

Rendering range is in a square 500x500 centered on you, so you see farther diagonally away.  So you see about ~700 to you NW/SW/SE/NE but only 500 to the N/S/W/E.  This is actually seeing tanks on the screen that your teammates spotted.

If I recall it's 440m view range, and 8.5% of camouflage piercing ability?

There is no maximum view range, although the highest achievable is nearly 600m by a patton.
The maximum detection range is 445m.
The maximum draw distance is 500m. (It's a 1000x1000x1000 cube around your tank.)

Technically, it's a 1km x 1km square.

So, if someone is over 445m, i wont be able to spot, even if he is in the open?

If he's within draw distance, you can see him if someone else spots him, but there is a hard cap of 445m for spot checks. So no, you can't 'spot' him, even if he's doing donuts in the open while firing wildly.

With my Marder using Coated Optics, Binos, Recon and S Awareness and another tank who is forward of my position lighting up the enemy I can see and kill up to 666m so far. But without someone lighting up the targets for me it my spotting range is limited.
Works the same on my Jagpanther but not as well since my Commander is only at 35% Recon.

Max spotting range (ability to spot an enemy tank)  = 445 meters
Max draw (ability to render an enemy tank that a team mate has spotted) = 707 meters

Good video but didn't they change fallen trees so they did provide cover?

Spotting Range = 445m max
View Range is unlimited, it can go as far as you can make it go. It's just that binocs only boost it up to 500m, other things like vents, BiA, Recon, S. Awareness, etc. make it go higher (I believe)

1000m = 1Km

6 of one, half dozen of the other,
