DJI just announced the Osmo Action camera, a new product that directly rivals GoPro’s bread-and-butter action cameras. The world leader in drones is now gunning to be the world leader in action cameras.
GoPro tried to rival DJI’s drones back in 2016 by launching the Karma, but that drone failed to gain traction and was discontinued less than two years later. Now DJI is returning the favor by unveiling an action camera that competes against the GoPro HERO line.
The DJI Osmo Action features a durable design that’s dustproof, shockproof (from drops up to 5ft/1.5m), waterproof (down to 36ft/11m without any housing), and freezeproof (down to 14°F/-10°C).
