DJI OSMO Action Best value for money
- 4K at 60 fps too
- Second screen on the front
- A nice Dewarp mode
Best known for its drones, DJI has also entered the action camera market with the Osmo Action. It is very clearly targeting the Hero 8 Black with its similar characteristics: 12 Mpx sensor, 4K at 60 frames per second, waterproof to 11 meters, etc. Initially marketed in the same price range as GoPro, it is now available at 249 euros, which makes it the best value for money on the market, by far.
If the screen at the front is no longer an exclusive, the Hero 9 now being equipped with it, the latter always greatly facilitates framing. However, this screen is not touch sensitive. It also displays some practical information. The camera is also electronically stabilized with the Rocksteady technology seen on the brand’s drones. We can therefore trust it, even if the GoPro Hypersmooth remains more efficient.
On the image, DJI’s know-how is there, but we will especially appreciate the “ Dewarp ” mode which makes it possible to remove the distortions inherent in the use of a wide-angle sensor and action camera price in bd. This is actually quite effective. For sound, DJI only offers two microphones, so it will do slightly worse than the Hero 8 Black. It is also compatible with GoPro accessories.
Full details of this action camera can be found in our DJI Osmo Action review.
GoPro Max The 360 Option
Amazing editing possibilities
GoPro again to finish with a rather special proposal: the GoPro Max. This one has the particularity of filming at 360°. It is particularly appreciated for trick sports such as skateboarding or snowboarding, but the possibilities are very numerous. Because in addition to the 360° video as such, it allows you to frame exactly what you want during editing.
It is based on the GoPro Hero 8 Black, with in particular the two mounting brackets which are always practical. What sets it apart is the presence of two ultra-wide-angle lenses that allow 360° filming: the two videos are automatically glued together to offer the complete sphere… minus the camera itself, removed from the field by the software.
In practice, the camera films in 5.6 k at 360° in 30 frames per second. Please note that this definition is however not comparable to classic 4K in 16:9 since it results from the assembly of two video streams. In classic mode, you’ll be able to shoot in 1440p at 60 fps or less. For sound, GoPro relies on 6 microphones, again to capture it at 360°.
