DJI has unveiled its latest action camera called the Osma Action 3, which takes on the familiar characteristics of its predecessors and pushes the envelope a bit further, resting in a camera that’s well-suited to meet the demands of inclement weather and high-impact action while boasting stunning, high-quality video as well as more power and control.
“Ever since we released the original Osmo Action in 2019, we have been continuously inspired by the stunning footage captured with it,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI. “As our users keep pushing further, moving faster, and diving deeper, our mission is to provide a device built to keep up with them. Every new feature made Osmo Action 3 the most reliable, tough, and easy-to-use action camera. We can’t wait to see what our users create when they push their limits with Osmo Action 3.”
A Battery for the Extreme, and More
Osmo Action 3 was designed as a single solution for capturing an active lifestyle, no matter how adventurous. It all starts with a 1770mAh Extreme Battery that lets the camera record for up to 160 minutes. It also handles temperatures as low as -20° C (-4° F), and charges from 0-80% in as little as 18 minutes and 0-100% in 50 minutes, thanks to native fast-charging support, a first for action cameras. The Osmo Action 3 Extreme Battery comes with Osmo Action 3 by default; no separate purchase is required.
Adventures, Now Vertical
A world driven by social media needs a vertical-first way to capture compelling action – and Osmo Action 3 goes full send. The camera has a built-in mounting system that instantly and securely clips the camera to handlebars, helmets, and more, optimizing the quick-release system first seen in Action 2 by adding notches for a locked-in, impact-resistant hold. A new Horizontal-Vertical Protective Frame brings this quick-mounting technology in a vertical orientation, perfect for social media platforms. With a tight, reliable hold that withstands bumps, tumbles, and breaking waves, Osmo Action 3 keeps users and their most extreme moments in a perfect frame.
A Dynamic Imaging Powerhouse
Osmo Action 3 is packed with bleeding-edge hardware and software to keep up with your dynamic lifestyle. Its 1/1.7-inch imaging system shoots in 4K/120fps , provides a 155° super-wide FOV, and films smooth footage with a world-class EIS suite. An improved heat management system enables continuous 4K/60fps recording until the battery runs out of power, solving the overheating issue common to many other action cameras. D-Cinelike Color Mode is available in video, slow-motion, and time-lapse modes for those looking for more room to edit in post-production. And for those willing to dive deeper, Osmo Action 3 is waterproof at depths of up to 16 meters without needing any additional housing.
Steady and Smooth Footage with RockSteady
Osmo Action 3 builds on DJI’s legacy of innovative image stabilization that has transformed cinematography and aerial photography. For a multitude of dynamic shooting scenarios, Osmo Action 3 has three distinct electronic image stabilization options:
Be Seen and Heard, Loud and Clear
Osmo Action 3 is more than a rugged camera for high-intensity action; it’s also the perfect camera for vloggers and streamers alike. Osmo Action 3 is the first action camera with dual touchscreens, letting users access settings from any angle while keeping the camera in perfect position. Three-mic stereo recording reduces wind noise and boosts the audio quality of the footage. Wi-Fi Livestream supports 1080p/30fps, 720p/30fps and 480p/30fps, and pausing recording during the stream. UAC/UVC Webcam support offers high-quality video and audio for conference calls and livestreams.
DJI Mimo and LightCut: Two Ways to Create
Osmo Action 3 connects with the DJI Mimo smartphone app via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for even more functionality, including a live feed of the camera, various story templates, quick in-app editing, and more. In addition, the LightCut video editor app is thoroughly optimized for use with Action 3. It can automatically select clips and intelligently match them with exclusive templates to generate ready-to-share video edits.
