Osmo Action 3 Review
Osmo Action 3 has a 1/1.7-inch optical format image sensor and an ultra-wide-angle lens with a 155-degree field of view. The camera allows you to record 4K video at a speed of 120 frames per second. There were many complaints about the predecessor due to overheating, and now DJI guarantees that the Osmo Action 3 will be able to record 4K 60fps video until the battery dies. Based on this claim, it may overheat when recording 4K 120fps video.
Osmo Action 3 — RockSteady 3.0 stabilization system
Osmo Action 3 has the patented RockSteady 3.0 stabilization system (it also works with the highest quality 4K 120 f/s), as well as support for HorizonSteady technology, which prevents “horizon scrolling”.
Osmo Action 3 has an extreme battery
DJI says the Osmo Action 3 has an “extreme” 1,770 mAh battery: it can be fully charged in 50 minutes and allows you to record 160 minutes of video.
Osmo Action 3 with two touch screens
Developers call Osmo Action 3 the world’s first action camera with two touch screens. This is done for convenience: you can access the settings from the front display and the main display. The novelty has three microphones, but if their recording quality is not sufficient, an external microphone can be connected via USB-C.
Osmo Action 3 Price
Patented protective frame supports both horizontal and vertical camera mounting – ideal for those who prefer to shoot vertical video. You don’t need to buy the right case to shoot underwater: the Osmo Action 3 itself is designed to dive to a depth of 16 meters. Osmo Action 3 starts at $330. The Osmo Action 3 Standard Combo, which includes the aforementioned frame and “extreme” battery, is the sum for the price.
