DJI has announced the Osmo Action – price tag $349 / £329 / €379 – a dual screen action camera with a 1/2.3-inch sensor t0fpshat records video in 4K up to 60fps at 100Mbps.
As well as 4K at 60fps, the DJI Osmo Action can capture HDR video in 4K at 30fps, delivering an extra three stops of dynamic range to your scenes.
An 8x slow motion effect is possible by recording video in 1080p at 240fps, or you can shoot 4x slow motion in 1080p at 120fps.
The Osmo Action also boasts an in-camera timelapse mode and Custom Exposure settings (effectively a Bulb mode) for shooting long exposures at up to 120 seconds.
Also on board is DJI’s in-body stabilisation system, called RockSteady. Dual built-in microphones allow users to use the Osmo Action’s Voice Control to command the camera.
DJI has given the Osmo Action large LCD screens on the front and rear of the camera. On the back is a 2.25-inch touchscreen with water- and fingerprint-repelling coating. On the front is a 1.4-inch LCD that DJI says can be viewed in harsh lighting conditions.
We’ve been shooting with the Osmo Action for the past two weeks. For more details and in-depth tests of these features and more, check out our DJI Osmo Action review.
