DJI Osmo Action Review: A new challenger to the action camera throne

DJI… you probably best know them for their drones, but the company’s Osmo line of handheld cameras has been around for a while. The latest member to that family is the Osmo Action, and it’s a fairly unsubtle attempt to take on GoPro directly.

  1. Sloppy review, he just rushed to make a video and did not even mentioned audio quality. This is why independent YouTubers are more in depth because they are more passionate at the product they are actually using.

  2. Thanks for the trade war, price is 25% higher in US than any other places

  3. We love our hero 7 but the stabilization sometimes randomly seems to not work, and the overheating and shutting off issue still exist. Did you experience any of this with the Osmo Action. Our DJI Osmo Pocket is rock solid when it comes to powering on and just staying on, hoping that action is the same.

  4. lol the osmo pisses all over the GoPro

  5. Is this gonna be good for police brutality or is it going to shut off a soon as you’re finished filming them pigs ✌️👮👮👮👮👮

  6. 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑

  7. This could’ve been a perfect review but you missed one key thing…Audio!

  8. This looks better than the GoPro in nearly every way in terms of image quality. The fish-eye on the GoPro has always been to extreme and a bit ugly, this has the right balance of FOV and distortion. The stabilizing looks much better and also it doesn't look as digitally sharpened as the GoPro and has more of a flattering look.

  9. Just sold my GoPro Hero 7 Black to get the Osmo, the lack of Linear mode in 4K on the GoPro is what made me do it.

  10. Stabilization clearly looks better than the go pro

  11. This camera may be the nail that pushes GoPro over the cliff. The GoPro 8 just went back to the drawing board.

  12. How does it compare with DJI Osmo Pocket pro VS the DJI OSMO Action cam?

  13. Am i the only one that thought the stabilization footage shown has DJI beating go pro hands down?

  14. I just bought Osmo Pocket !!! It seems this cover it and more

  15. Osmo looks more stable! Watch the backgrounds!

  16. Gopro is better hands down. Picture quality and stabilizer

  17. Timewarp vs Hyperlapse omission, not that difficult to test and I see this pattern on other channels…….

  18. Does the Osmo Action have 4 axis Gimbal stabilization equivalent?

  19. DJI

    Not dgi

    It's a pet peeve of mine when people say it wrong

  20. The big question: Do you have to buy a stupidly overpriced adapter directly from DJI in order to add an external microphone? I always HATED that about Gopro.

  21. I am still figuring out how to use my new Osmo pocket that I got a month ago and now Dji has introduced Osmo action.
    Now I'm just going to act like Osmo action does not exist. I need my kidneys.

  22. Does it have linear mode like the GoPros? Instead of wide only.

  23. to use an external mic, do we need DJI's proprietary 3.5mm mic adapter? or any USB-C 3.5mm adapter will do the job?

  24. How is the sound for vloging?

  25. I recently lost an action camera on a bike. Does it have a lanyard hole so i can use it without a plastic case and strap lanyard around handle bars in case it falls off the bike mount? Ive learnt a valuable lesson on what i need in a future camera

  26. Very interesting to see you saying GoPro is better…… Because I just watch another review and the DJI blew the GoPro out of the water on lighting and stabilizing!

  27. You forgot to mention that the DJI Osmo action has voice commands. You can say switch screen to go from front to back screen. You can say take picture or record video and it will without having to press any buttons.

  28. GREAT ……. just another boxy absolute nonsense design , you can't mount this craps
    anyway ,anywhere for any action possible footage ….. They're DASHCAMs not Action cam
    Thank god japanese brands have some guts to came with some ideas and NOT just copying Boxy@rs GoNonsense

  29. People are reporting a lot of inconvenient bugs and proprietary problems with the gopro. I'm ditching it for those and getting the Yi for myself. Would be nice if reviewers were more honest and did a better work tackling down these problems so we could make better choices… But they don't. It's all about the money.

    Long gone the real reviews.

  30. Go pro is an established brand all over the world, can dji bit him on this segment?

  31. Hi you didn’t mention if it’s got the fish eye option like the GoPro
