Impressive videos are shot not only by DJI drones, but also by action cameras produced by the company. The recently introduced Osmo Action 3 action camera is a great proof of that. If you look at its main characteristics, it becomes clear why.
Photo and video
Osmo Action 3 records video in up to 4K resolution at 120 frames per second and a viewing angle of up to 155 degrees. A built-in 1/1.7‑inch sensor and a wide ISO range of 100 to 12800 make it easy to shoot in low light.
A built-in algorithm adjusts white balance and exposure for accurate color reproduction. D‑Cinelike color mode developed by DJI engineers (to use it, you need to enable professional settings) allows you to achieve the maximum richness of details.
The camera can broadcast live video over Wi-Fi. The footage is conveniently edited in the proprietary DJI Mimo application and in the LightCut video editor officially recommended by the manufacturer.
Design for adventure
The main distinguishing feature of Osmo Action 3 is the presence of two touch screens at once. They provide quick set-up and expand the application possibilities of the camera. Both the main 2.2‑inch and the front 1.4‑inch screens are made of super-strong Gorilla Glass and respond to pressing even with wet hands.
But the rest of the camera will not let adventurers down. With up to 160 minutes of filming on a single battery charge (1770 mAh capacity), Osmo Action 3 can withstand temperatures from ‑20 to +45 ° C, underwater diving to a depth of 16 meters and drops from a height of 1.5 m. And a system of three microphones records sound in stereo quality and significantly reduces wind noise.
DJI products are known for their high quality image stabilization. Osmo Action 3 is no exception and is additionally equipped with three digital technologies that enhance the visual integrity of the picture:
- Rocksteady 3.0 — A smart algorithm effectively eliminates camera shake in all directions. It works at any selected settings (including the maximum resolution of 4K at 120 fps) and enhances the effect of presence in videos shot by athletes and extreme sportsmen.
- HorizonSteady — technology provides a smooth picture with a stable horizon, despite sharp drops and 360 ° turns of the operator.
- HorizonBalancing is an optional feature that eliminates tilting of the horizon (at tilts of ±45°) and supports shooting in 4K at 60 fps. The video will remain clear even on a difficult obstacle course.
The action camera can be purchased as part of a basic or advanced kit. The basic Osmo Action 3 Standard Combo includes the camera itself with one battery, a mounting buckle and a protective frame that supports shooting in both horizontal and vertical formats. The extended Osmo Action 3 Adventure Combo additionally includes one additional mount, two more batteries (with a carrying case) and a retractable extension arm, adjustable from 0.3 to 1.5 m.
