Advanced Technology With Exceptional Image Quality
Adventure - In Stunning Detail
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.
A three-glass aspherical lens design records low-distortion content and aids in reducing warping effects for improved scenes.
The lens cap is finished with two layers of anti-fingerprint coating to keep the shot clean during use, as well as an anti-reflective coating to reduce the unwanted effects of lens glare, giving users more flexibility to shoot in bright conditions.
Osmo Action is the first DJI handheld camera to include RockSteady, DJI’s Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) technology.
High-performance stabilisation algorithms work in conjunction with EIS to record every movement in smooth, stable, high-quality video, even when recording 4K/60fps.
Osmo Action is capable of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video in 4K/30fps, delivering an additional three stops of dynamic range to the scene, natural transitions between light and dark areas, and rich details that are often lost in complex lighting conditions.
Longer Life To Go Further
Osmo Action 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.
Rugged Construction and Intuitive Design
Ideal For Harsh Environments
A compact yet durable design makes Osmo Action the ideal camera for life’s adventures. Constructed to handle extreme conditions with ease, Osmo Action is dustproof, shockproof, waterproof and has the ability to operate in sub-freezing temperatures.
Osmo Action is capable of operating at a depth of 36 feet (11 metres) without additional waterproof housing, or up to 60 metres with a diving house.
Colour Screens and Easier Selfies
Osmo Action utilises colour screens on both the front and back, a unique design feature that allows for more convenient scene composition while on the move.
The 2.25-inch rear touchscreen 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.
Osmo Action’s interactive user interface, Action OS, combines a streamlined and functional physical design with flexible operation.
Power on, initiate recording, and rotate through the video and photo capture modes in the blink of an eye with three dedicated buttons.
Never miss a moment with the help of SnapShot, which allows Osmo Action to turn on and begin recording in under two seconds by pressing the shutter button once.
Creative and Intelligent Features
Extra Features At A Tap Of A Button
A staple in DJI’s product lineup, Osmo Action offers a wide variety of highly creative features built into the camera which users can access with a few simple taps. While recording, choose between:
Slo-mo: 8x slow motion in 1080p 240fps or 4x slow motion in 1080p 120fps creates a visually appealing effect when documenting action-packed scenes.
Timelapse: If the user is looking to turn minutes into seconds, Timelapse is perfect for capturing unique content with the effect of the world moving faster.
Custom Exposure Settings: Shoot for the stars with manual and semi-automatic settings that allow up to 120 seconds of exposure, perfect for capturing the night sky.
Frequently Asked Questions
What resolution settings does Osmo Action support?
When Osmo Action is recording, can I view the remaining time and capacity of the microSD card?
Yes. The remaining time will be displayed at the top left of the screen during recording, and the remaining capacity of the microSD card will be displayed when taking a photo.
What is HDR Video mode for?
Use HDR Video mode to enhance the image quality, restore details, and increase the layer of colors to make your video more vivid.
Does Osmo Action support distortion correction?
Can I save original photos from a Timelapse?
Photos from Timelapse can be downloaded and viewed on a computer.
What is RockSteady?
Osmo Action uses RockSteady technology to stabilse footage. This EIS technology is realised by increasing the shutter speed, analysing the images captured by the CMOS sensor, and compensating by cutting off the edges of these images.

Yes. Osmo Action supports up to 1080p/240fps 8x slow motion videos.

Brilliant ideal for what I wanted, I had the hero 7 before this and find this much easier to use. Probably hasn’t got all the bells and whistles of the hero,but this is a go to camera and everything is easy to find without trawling through menu’s.

Another dji awesome product
Simply brilliant - the touchscreen is simple to use, quality of the imaging is top notch and so is the cameras abilities. It's only downside is the lens as it is exposed to getting scratched.

Great, but no mic input
All in all a great camera, and I think reasonably priced. It gets a lot of use and very robust. Ordinarily I would have given 5 stars, but the inability to have external mic input lets this camera down badly, and would explain why many see the Hero 7 as the better choice, especially if vlogging.
Allegedly DJI will release a dongle that allows for mic input at some unknown point in time, but it should have been available at launch, or at least soon after. I will wait a little longer, but if no dongle soon I will likely go for Hero7.
All in all, great camera, but needs external mic input, and soon.
Finally, great service as usual from Heliguy.

Beats the GP Hero 7 for me.
I have 2 of these now, and for the new price of 279 they are a must have for my kit. The picture quality is much better than the GP Hero 7 in low light, which i am often in. I like the 2 screens, and the fact that the colour science matches the Osmo Pockets, which i use too.

Osmo action cam
I bought this as an option to the go pro hero black. At first I was impressed looked good. Seemed to have a quicker response and battery life was good. I tested underwater of which the picture was not as crisp as the go pro. The settings and ease of downloading and editing it really good but the biggest issue is putting the sd card in. You need really small hands or long nails to get in in and out. Also why is it that in order to charge the Osmo you cannot have it in the case as the slot is blocked. The stability is also not as good as GoPro. When on the body or head it’s ok but when fixed to bike there is obvious shake. Overall a good first attempt by DJI but wish I had stuck with go pro. Maybe next one will be better

Does what it says on the tin!
I purchased one of these for a specific job, an 8hr time lapse in the rain, for a customer.
It performed the task flawlessly (albeit with external power as no action camera has an 8hr battery) and I have since used it on a couple of other jobs and it's hitting the mark every time.
The app seems to work well and it's looking like I'll be ordering another one or two in the near future.

A good little camera in the GoPro styled space.
Picture quality is very good but becomes so much better if you purchase a set of filters.
The "rocksteady" image stabilisation is really really good. Bear in mind that the screen image in "rocksteady" mode lags realtime by a half second or so but it's not really had an effect on anything I do.
Battery life is not fantastic for longer takes so buy a couple of extra ones. Unusually for DJI pretty good pricing but I expect GoPro influenced that.
