DJI’s Osmo Action Camera Puts Power In The Palm Of Your Hand

DJI has always been at the forefront of the industry when it comes to the latest camera technology, focusing almost exclusively on drone-based platforms for some of media’s top performing cameras. Though the company has dabbled in the handheld realm with the relatively successful Osmo (a 2-in-1 camera and gimbal setup), they’ve consistently missed out on the audience that their largest competitor, GoPro, has fostered with its very own portable devices. That shouldn’t be a problem any longer, following the announcement of DJI’s newest optical breakthrough, the Osmo Action Camera.

The Osmo Action brings a smaller, more affordable package to the table for aspiring action/outdoor videographers, integrating the company’s renowned dual-screen technology, “rocksteady” image stabilization, and a sealed, waterproof exterior that’s capable to depths of 11 meters. You’ll be able to capture all of your foreign and domestic endeavors in either 4K HDR or 4K UHD (at 60 frames-per-second), giving you crystal-clear footage in a variety of conditions. If you’re looking to vlog, a front-facing camera and LCD help you to keep everything in focus, while complex algorithms and EIS keep everything shake-free for a professional looking product. If you’re a pixel peeper, the action camera also introduces a heightened dynamic range, allowing you to shoot video with exposure-controlled HDR qualities. Custom exposure settings, 240 frames-per-second at 1080p resolution, and a number of specialized shooting modes help you capture the moment, no matter the challenge.
