The DJI Osmo Action is a fantastic little number that runs circles around (other) GoPro copycats. From an ergonomic point of view, the front touch screen is also incredibly handy for self-shooters. Generally speaking, images from the GoPro are slightly more pleasing. This is partly thanks to a higher maximum bitrate. GoPro’s HERO7 tops out at 75Mbps in H.265 whereas the Osmo tops out at 100Mbps, but only in H.264. DJI Osmo Action has a slightly larger battery than GoPro.
Getting the most out of your DJI action cam requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
To prevent any injury to the user or any damage to the instrument it is essential that you read the information in the DJI Osmo Action user manual. Carefully read and follow all instructions and guidelines in this manual and give special attention to the CAUTION and WARNING statements.
