DJI takes on GoPro with their new portable Osmo Action camera

And it records 4K.

Known for their drone products, DJI has now unveiled a new camera – the Osmo Action camera (might call it their own GoPro).

Osmo Action is dustproof, shockproof, waterproof and has the ability to operate in sub-freezing temperatures.

It’s packed with the 2.25-inch rear touchscreen which employs a water and fingerprint repelling coating, and the 1.4-inch front screen makes vlogging and selfies easier than ever before. With a brightness of 750-nits, Osmo Action can be used in harsh lighting conditions including direct sunlight.



A 1/2.3-inch sensor records 12-megapixel photos and 4K video up to 60fps at 100Mbps in stunning detail, assuring high-quality footage.  

Osmo Action is the first DJI handheld camera to include RockSteady, DJI’s Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) technology. This camera has a removable battery with a run time of 93 minutes recording at 4K/30fps with RockSteady enabled, and 135 minutes recording at 1080p/30fps without RockSteady. Dual microphones let users take advantage of Osmo Action’s Voice Control, and a speaker ensures outstanding playback quality.

Using the recently released DJI Mimo app, connect Osmo Action to your mobile device with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for added functionality, including a live feed of the camera, multiple story templates, in-app quick editing.

Price and Availability

Osmo Action will sell at a recommended Retail Price of R 6999 and will be available from end of May at iStore, The Digital Experience, Takealot and various other major retailers in South Africa.
