DJI Unveils Osmo Action 4K Camera; More Info at B&H

May 15, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2019--

B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the DJI Osmo Action. Rugged and resilient, the Osmo Action is ready to capture your next adventure, whether it’s hiking, biking, skiing, surfing, climbing, or even just lounging at the beach. Already the name when it comes to drones and aerial photography, DJI’s entry into the action cam arena was an obvious move. Leveraging it’s sophisticated tech, DJI has created a masterpiece with the Osmo Action, one that offers 4K HDR, dual color screens, and a class-leading RockSteady electronic stabilization system.


The hallmark of any great action cam is durability. It needs to handle dips, drops, slams, shocks, and more. The Osmo Action can take it all. It’s waterproof to 36′, can withstand drops up to 5′, and it’s dustproof and freezeproof to 14ºF. Basically, it’s an adventure-proof action cam that’s ready for whatever you throw at it.

Although it shares a form factor with other cams on the market, the Osmo Action has a key differentiator: a front-facing 1.4-inch full-color screen. Never before have action selfies been this easy. Vlogging is also painless, because the front-facing screen makes it that much easier to frame yourself up before or during your adventure. The back of the cam also features a bright 800-nit 2.25-inch touchscreen with water- and fingerprint-repellent coating. Standard controls are available via a physical power button, shutter button, and QuickSwitch button for rapid access to plenty of functions.

The Osmo Action also comes with a dedicated battery that’s rated for up to 91 minutes of run time when shooting 4K30 with stabilization enabled. The battery is secured behind two secure locks that ensure it remains sealed. Inside a second sealed compartment are a microSD card slot and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transmission.


DJI has a reputation for outfitting its devices with serious camera specs, and the Osmo Action keeps that storied tradition alive. Packing a 12MP 1/2.3″ CMOS, the Osmo Action can record up to 4K60 with a bit rate of 100 Mb/s and H.264 compression. Adventurists can expect consistently crisp, clean imagery. Helping out is an f/2.8 lens with aspherical elements that keep distortion to a minimum and reduce warping effects inherent with an ultra-wide 145º FOV. An anti-reflective coating completes the lens package by reducing the impact of flare and ghosting.

One of the many reasons DJI remains at the forefront of the industry is because of the stabilization performance of its devices—especially the Osmo line. The Osmo Action lives up to that rep with its class-leading electronic stabilization system. Aptly named RockSteady, the Action’s Electronic Image Stabilization technology works all the way up to 4K60, offering incredibly smooth footage. This stabilization will dramatically improve your walking vlogs, tracking shots—anything that involves movement.

Speaking of improving your shots: HDR mode adds an additional three stops of dynamic range to scenes for smoother gradients, giving users the ability to capture more detail in the shadows and highlights that might be lost otherwise. Full HD is also available and can be used with super slow-motion recording up to 240 fps. At this speed, you can slow down action footage and create dramatic or fun videos with ease. Additionally, the Osmo Action features both Timelapse and Hyperlapse modes. You can also program up to five custom modes and quickly switch between them using the QuickSwitch button.

Beyond its incredible action cam bona fides, the Osmo Action has plenty of additional features that will help you make the best action vids possible. Connectivity, for instance, includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. That means you can connect to the DJI Mimo app on your mobile device and access camera settings, a live feed, and more. The app also offers story templates, quick editing tools, and other features for working with the video.

A beast on its own, the Osmo Action also supports a number of accessories. The included camera frame gives you multiple mounting options, as do the mounts that come with the camera. A waterproof case is also available for dive pros and bumps the 36′ of waterproofing all the way down to 197′. Standard extension rods and floating support handles are available, as is a dedicated set of filters for optimizing your footage.

The Osmo Action looks like a big time winner for DJI, and a solid entry point into the action cam market. Action enthusiasts and adventurers looking for a great way to capture stabilized footage of all their exciting exploits should look no further.
