How Does It Compare to GoPro? The comparison is obvious, so let’s briefly lay out the differences between the DJI Osmo Action 4K camera and the GoPro Hero7 Black. The Osmo Action is ever so slightly smaller but has a rear LCD that’s .25" larger with increased resolution. It also features a large, full color front LCD with live video preview that the Hero7 lacks entirely. Quality of stabilization is similar between the two cameras, but the Osmo crops the image about 20% in its implementation. The Osmo has comparable battery life, no GPS capabilities, and no HDMIoutput but is slightly more submersible at up to 36-feet.
Player 2 Has Entered the Game. The DJI Osmo Action 4K is the next GoPro challenger and maybe the first to stick. It features a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor that can record UHD 4K video at up to 60fps and 1080p video at up to 240fps in a H.264 codec. Photos can be captured at 12MP JPEG & DNG. HDR video is available but limited to 4K/30p.
Front & Rear LCDs. You’ll finally be able to frame your selfie action shots with a 1.4-inch, 750 cd/m² LCD screen. The rear LCD fills the back of the camera with a 2.25-inch, 325 ppi touchscreen panel.
Rugged, Waterproof Design. The camera can withstand drops from 5-feet and is completely waterproof down to 36-feet for 30 minutes. The rental includes a mounting frame that is compatible with standard action camera hinge mount accessories. It is not compatible with accessories requiring a GoPro buckle mount.
Integrated Microphones. The Osmo Action has dual microphones with software noise reduction, and compatible USB-C microphones can be used but will negate waterproofing, The camera has dual speakers for playback.
Other Notable Features. The camera’s basic operation can be controlled by voice with record and power functions. Video and photos are recorded to microSD, SDHC, or SDXCmedia that is 30MB/s or faster. The camera also features integration into DJI’s existing Mimo mobile app.
No. Currently there are very few options for DJI action camera accessory mounts, so we opted to include a standard 1/4"-20 tripod base for wider compatibility.
The camera frame features the standard action camera hinge mount for wide compatibility with existing GoPro and third party accessories.
Yes. Please follow these steps to ensure watertightness.
1. Fully insert battery and verify that both battery release buttons are not showing any orange.
2. Verify that the USB-C cover is properly closed.
3. Verify that the lens filter cap is fully attached.
4. Do not take the Osmo Action deeper than 36-feet or underwater for longer than 30 minutes.
5. Do not jump into water with the camera.
6. Do not use the camera in hot springs.
7. Rinse the camera with clean water after salt water use.
DJI rates the battery for 135 minutes when recording video at 1080/30p. Using features like RockSteady and higher frame rates will shorten the runtime.
The battery can be charged in roughly 90 minutes but will depend on the source of charging power.
We include a USB 2.0 Male to Type-C cable for charging the battery inside the camera. We do not include a charging brick, but common USB phone charging bricks and computer USB ports will work for this purpose.
Yes. We include an additional mount with a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for attaching it to tripods and other common threaded accessories.
