DJI Osmo Action Camera plans to give GoPro a run for its money

NEWSDJI is already well known for its range of drones and gimbals and now they’re entering the action camera market as well.

The Osmo Action Camera uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor and records in up to 4K. It has built-in full color screens on both the rear and front of the camera, perfect for framing or vlogging or selfies. It’s dustproof, shockproof up to 1.5m (5ft) and waterproof down to 11m (36ft) as is and there’s an optional housing for those who want additional protection or want to go deeper (196ft / 60m)

It also includes features like Electronic Image Stabilisation and  8 X Slo-mo (in 1080p). Battery life is quoted as 116 minutes when recording at 1080/30p.  DJI has also released a range complement their new release.

Can they give GoPro (arguably the leader in action cameras) a run for their money?

Available from DJI now and from retailers on May 22nd. More details available here.
