DJI has released the Osmo Action 4 action camera, aimed at adventurous types. It features a Type 1/1.3 sensor, F2.8 aperture, over 2.5 hours of battery life in certain weather conditions, and dual full-color touchscreens on both sides of the device.
The Osmo Action 4 captures a 155º ultra-wide FOV (at 4K/60p, with stabilization deactivated), and can capture HD video at frame rates up to 4K/120p. Digital zoom up to 2X is supported. DJI’s 10-bit D-Log M color mode, first introduced with the Mavic 3 Pro series, is also available.
The camera also includes 360° HorizonSteady stabilization modes, including DJI’s RockSteady 3.0/3.0+ for FPV footage, something that was introduced with DJI’s first FPV drone, plus HorizonBalancing and HorizonSteady for horizontal shots, which the company claims will make it easy to capture higher-quality footage in a variety of scenarios. DJI says an upgraded InvisiStick can identify and conceal selfie sticks.
The Osmo Action 4 can record for over 2.5 hours in ideal conditions. In extreme weather, DJI says the freeze-resistant batteries can power the device up to 150 minutes at temperatures as low as 20°C (-4°F). A fast-charging capability allows users to recharge the device up to 80% in 18 minutes.
A magnetic quick-release design mechanism allows the Osmo Action 4 to toggle between shots with differing orientations, and vertical shooting capability is available to capture clips with a 9:16 orientation. The device is water resistant at a depth of up to 18 meters (about 59 feet) without a case attached, as are both touchscreens. Snapshot and QuickSwitch allow you to create shortcuts to up to 5 custom modes, including Slow Motion, Hyperlapse, and Timelapse.
The Osmo Action 4 has three built-in microphones for omnidirectional recording, supports wind noise reduction, and features voice control, meaning it can take voice commands and control the camera accordingly. Wi-Fi live-streaming capability allows you to record on the go and stream using a Wi-Fi connection or your phone’s hotspot for a continual connection. The DJI Mic is also compatible.
DJI has been pushing its free LightCut app on its newest products, and this one is no exception. The app automatically connects to the Osmo Action 4 through Wi-Fi for instant editing without connecting directly to the camera. LightCut offers various templates for storytelling and recommends shot sequences with ‘one tap’ of a button.
