Looks like GoPro has a solid contender coming up with the launch of DJI’s first ever action camera, the Osmo Action. It packs some amazing internals along with mind-boggling video stabilization. The stabilization depends on the EIS combined with software delivering stable, shake-free footage and DJI calls it Rock Steady image stabilization system.
The Osmo Action features dual screens, a smaller 1.44-inch display is on the front and a larger 2.25-inch display is on the back. This can be one of the major selling points of the Osmo Action. Looks wise, it looks similar to its major contender, the GoPro Hero 7 and weighs around 124g.
the DJI Osmo Action can record 4K at 60fps and also supports slow-motion video recording up to 240fps in 1080p resolution. There’s also an HDR mode which captures high dynamic details built-in. The Osmo Action can also be controlled by a voice which of course is a cool feature to have, especially on action cameras.
Coming to the battery end, DJI claims that, its 1300 mAh battery can survive for 90min with RockSteady on, or 135min when it switched off. When you record 4K video, it can survive for almost 63 minutes. The Osmo Action also comes with a 3-layered lens which reduces glare and distortion, delivering crystal-clear image even in direct sunlight. It also has an anti-fingerprint coating on the Lens Filter Cap which can repel oil, water, dirt, and other small particles.
Beyond this, the Osmo Action is waterproof at depths of up to 11 meters and can connect via Wifi or Bluetooth to its Mimo App. You can transfer the video files with using USB or from the MicroSD itself. As far as the pricing is concerned, the DJI Osmo Action is priced at $349 which is around 25,000 Indian rupees.
