Since DJI entered the action camera market, DJI has continuously brought revolutionary new changes in this field. When the DJI Osmo Action was released, the added front screen design made it more convenient for selfie vlog users to shoot. The magnetic quick release design of DJI Action 2 opens the door to a new world. But for outdoor extreme sports enthusiasts, they need high battery life, low heat and replaceable batteries for action cameras. So DJI made persistent efforts, and the DJI Osmo Action 3 came out.
From the appearance of the product, DJI Osmo Action 3 continues the design idea of DJI Osmo Action. However, it still has many innovative highlights. The front screen of the first generation can only be used as a reference for composition and framing, and does not support adjusting various specifications. But the front screen of the DJI Osmo Action 3 supports various touch adjustment settings. The touch screen operation logic is exactly the same as the rear screen, and you can get started immediately.
In terms of image quality, DJI Osmo Action 3 has also been significantly upgraded compared to the previous generation. Its CMOS specification has been increased to 1/1.7″, which supports 4K 120FPS video recording. The shooting screen provides two options of wide-angle field of view and standard distortion correction, and users can adjust the settings according to their own shooting needs.
The battery capacity of the camera is 1770mAh, and the camera will not have problems such as heating and crashing in an environment of minus 20°C. In this environment, 4K 60fps video shooting can provide 1.5 hours of battery life. And 4K 60fps video shooting will not be bothered by overheating. At the same time, DJI also launched a battery storage box accessory for the Osmo Action 3. The storage box can be loaded with 3 batteries, which is convenient for users to quickly replace the battery and continue shooting.
In fact, the magnetic quick release can still be seen on the body and accessories of the DJI Osmo Action 3. There is a magnetic buckle on the bottom of the camera and the right area of the protective case, and the design of the positioning column is added. The firmness of the buckle has been further enhanced, and the user has also gained the convenience of magnetic quick release.
Moreover, DJI Osmo Action 3 also provides accessories such as selfie sticks and suction cups. The selfie stick can be stretched in length, and when shooting while skiing, the selfie stick can also be automatically eliminated in the DJI MIMO APP, bringing a pure picture to ski shooting.
It is worth mentioning that the DJI Osmo Action 3 supports fast switching between horizontal and vertical shots when shooting. You can directly record the content of the vertical video without any post-production adjustment and cropping.
In addition, DJI also provides a new video editing application for Osmo Action 3 users. After the phone is paired with the DJI Osmo Action 3, the app can preview and edit the content in real time. And combine AI intelligent technology and related sports scenes to quickly match exclusive video templates.
It can be said that the DJI Osmo Action 3 is not only a return to the classic design of the Osmo Action generation, but also upgraded and improved in many aspects. For extreme sports enthusiasts, this is an all-round shooting equipment with no obvious shortcomings.
