On the same day the new GoPro camera comes out, DJI introduces the DJI Osmo Action 3. It has an Extreme B for extended battery life and native support for vertical shooting. As you can see in the photos, the new design is a strong departure from the previous model.
DJI unveiled the Osmo Action 3, its most powerful and content-friendly action camera. The Osmo Action 3 is one of the most flexible, rugged, and dependable action cameras available today, with a battery that powers users through the harshest situations and native vertical shooting for a fresh perspective on creative freedom.
“Ever since we released the original Osmo Action in 2019, we have been continuously inspired by the stunning footage captured with it,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI. “As our users keep pushing further, moving faster, and diving deeper, our mission is to provide a device built to keep up with them. Every new feature made Osmo Action 3 the most reliable, tough, and easy-to-use action camera. We can't wait to see what our users create when they push their limits with Osmo Action 3.”
DJI Osmo Action 3 with extreme battery life
Osmo Action 3 was created as a one-stop shop for documenting an active lifestyle, no matter how daring. Everything begins with a 1770mAh Extreme Battery, which allows the camera to record for up to 160 minutes.  It can also withstand temperatures as low as -20° C (-4° F), and charge from 0% to 80% in 18 minutes and 0% to 100% in 50 minutes, owing to native fast-charging technology, a first for action cameras. The Osmo Action 3 Extreme Battery comes included with Osmo Action 3; no further purchase is necessary.
DJI Osmo Action 3 shoots vertical
In a world dominated by social media, a vertical-first approach to capturing captivating action is required, and the DJI Osmo Action 3 delivers. The camera incorporates an integrated mounting system that hooks the camera to handlebars, helmets, and other surfaces immediately and firmly, improving on the quick-release mechanism originally seen in Action 2 by adding notches for a locked-in, impact-resistant grip.
This quick-mounting solution is now available in a vertical configuration, ideal for social media platforms, thanks to a new Horizontal-Vertical Protective Frame. Osmo Action 3 keeps you and your most intense moments in a perfect frame with a tight, dependable grasp that withstands bumps, tumbles, and breaking waves.
A Dynamic Imaging Powerhouse
To keep up with your fast-paced lifestyle, Osmo Action 3 is loaded with cutting-edge technology and software. Its 1/1.7-inch imaging system shoots in 4K/120fps, has a 155° super-wide field of view, and records smooth video with a world-class EIS suite.
An enhanced heat management system allows for continuous 4K/60fps shooting until the battery dies, resolving the overheating problem that plagues many other action cameras.
For those who want more flexibility to edit in post-production, D-Cinelike Color Mode is available in video, slow-motion, and timelapse modes.
For those who want to go further, the Osmo Action 3 is waterproof to depths of up to 16 meters without the need for any extra housing.
DJI Osmo Action 3 delivers Steady and Smooth Footage with RockSteady
DJI's record of pioneering picture stabilization has revolutionized filmmaking and aerial photography, and Osmo Action 3 continues that tradition.
Osmo Action 3 includes three separate electrical image stabilization solutions for a variety of dynamic shooting scenarios:
- Camera shaking is substantially eliminated in all directions with RockSteady 3.0. It supports 4K/120fps and offers a solid and immersive first-person experience. This is the best stabilization for sport-specific situations like bike riding and handheld filmmaking on the fly.
- HorizonSteady eliminates camera motion in all directions and even corrects tilt at any angle horizontally. This implies that film may stay horizontally level even after significant bumps and 360° rotations, producing the illusion of a flawless horizon without the need for post-production, even in off-kilter sports like surfing.
- HorizonBalancing corrects horizontal tilt within 45° and allows for the production of steady 4K/60fps films. This model is the appropriate compromise between RockSteady and HorizonSteady when the priority is a smooth 4K image in a dynamic environment, such as an FPV obstacle course run.
DJI Osmo Action 3 for vloggers
The Osmo Activity 3 is more than just a tough camera for high-intensity action; it's also ideal for vloggers and streamers.
