DJI is probably best known for his drones, but now he is breaking his feet to a brand new product category: Action Cameras.
Osmo Action's New DJ reminds someone of a camera from the main competitor, GoPro, but stands out by having two screens, one in front and one at the back.
Having a monitor of your front can be especially convenient to check that the camera actually communicates what you want before putting it into practice.
4K Video and HDR
The screens measure 2.25 and 1.4 inches, respectively, and have a very solid brightness of 750 nit. It should make it possible to see the contents of the screens even in bright sunlight.
Alternatively, Osmo Action can record a 4K resolution at 60 frames per second and a bit rate of up to 100 megabits per second, possibly 4K video with HDR at 30 frames per second. Slow silent films are also supported, up to 240 frames per second in a 1080P resolution, and the 1 / 2.3-inch sensor provides up to 12 megapixel still images.
The image was stabilized in some of the top most acclaimed model GoPro, Hero7 Black. In GoPro, it is called HyperSmooth, while DJI is calling it stabilized RockSteady.
Supports GoPro parties
The battery life should be up to 93 minutes in 4K and 30 frames per second with RockSteady enabled and 135 minutes without it. However, RockSteady cannot be used for recording HDR, at least for now. The snapshot function also allows the camera to turn on and record in two seconds.
Apparently Osmo Action also uses the same attachment that GoPro cameras do, so most of the current fasteners can be used.
The camera holds water down to 11 meters deep (without extra houses) and should withstand falls of up to one and a half meters. The camera must also withstand temperatures down to minus 10 degrees.
The price is set at $ 349, $ 50 less than GoPro should basically get for its Hero7Black. In Norway, the price of the DJI camera appears to be NOK 3799, slightly less than a hundred less than the GoPro Hero7 Black currently runs.
