    I have a Hero 7 Black and after watching this I 100% prefer the Osmo. I actually prefer the flat color profile of the Osmo to the GoPro. I color grade all my videos.

    Any updates on a dji vs hero 7 comparison?
    Recently lost a gopro, undecided if I should buy the hero 7 black or the osmo action.
    I'd use with a mic connected, that no cam supports without adapters

      @Daniel Neely Thank you for the reply.....DJI Osmo Action it is....So far I guess it will be a good addition to my Osmo POcket, Insta360 ONe X and Fuji Xa3 and Drone.

    Think Hero 7 was better in stabilization and image quality in light
    Action was better in low light image quality but wayyy to bright sometimes in light
    Both amazing I think though for their size

    No stabilized hyperlapse feature on the DJI OA like the GoPro 7. Attempting to return or sell my DJI OA unless DJI releases some sort of firmware upgrade that includes this feature.

      You have seen these 2 cameras side by side. I would recommend the Dji Osmo Action, though I like the colors better of the Gopro hero 7 black. But that is easy to fix! I hope I could help you a little bit though I'm not him😅.

  • OpaiqDrawings

    I used to be so discouraged about gopros prices because I thought they were way too expensive for the size of the camera. But when you compare what these action cameras can do to point n shoots of the same price- I think it’s clear that action cams like gopros or the osmo are the way to go. So
    Glad dji is making action cams- they excel at everything!

    Peter we need your help I have bought one of these action cameras and found it completely usable for mountain biking because of the field of view is too small compare to go pro can you help us with your contact with Polar pro and see if they can put an additional wide angle lens to give you the same field of view as the go pro ??? I think I would make a lot of money selling these if I could pull it off. Hoping you can help many thanks.

  • Mike Churcher

    Did you find that the subjects as viewed through the camera seem so far away. It seems to get a realistic shot you have to be with 3 feet or zoom in using post production. Is that a fair comment?

    Hello !!! I bought Osmo Action under the influence of your film, but I'm not satisfied with the cleanliness of the picture. The image appears to be more contaminated / grainy compared to GoPro Hero 6 Black. Even at a maximum of ISO 800, there is grain in the dark parts. I will omit the HDR mode in general because here there is absolutely nothing to compare even with Hero6Black ... Have you noticed it? Is your movie a purely marketing film focused on Osmo Action in the form of a new gadget ???

  • Jesse King

    the gopro camera got water on its lens and you kept the footage for comparison??? that's not very fair man...

    DJI make drones and image stabilisation. Here they have reinvented the wheel; a solution to a problem that does not exist. The answer to the problem is and has always been GoPro. Buy a GoPro.

    DJI be like we introduced gimbal because nobody is using it...
    Few years later...
    We don’t need gimbal since everyone is using it

    Great video. Quick question. I just bought the Osmo Action cam...my first go-anywhere camera. I'm looking for a bag/body strap. Do I have to get one specific to the Osmo action or do GoPro accessories work as well? Any recommendations?

    sooo just make a color correction in post and i have a wayy better camera than go pro, THAT'S BEATIFUL INSANE !!

    I love the changeable battery, that's the biggest problem I have with gopro 7. is it still functionable without the app? how does the audio sound when the wind is blowing? is it waterproof? can I take it into the jungle for weeks with me? DOES IT FREEZE UP LIKE MY GOPRO DOES?

    @Peter McKinnon I'm still debating on getting this or not. I have a mountain holiday for two weeks on 1st July. I'm debating on just getting the PolarPro iris ND filters for my iPhone XS as I already have the Zhiyun gimbal for that. Or whether it's worth the investment to get the Osmo action with all of the ND filters from Freewell and memory cards... which come to about £550 lol


    I did Scafel Pike Mountain here in the English Lakes Districts and my iphone footage was pretty good except I couldn't do the 180 degree rule due to no ND filters so the footage was stuttery. If you anyone else has any thoughts on this and help me to decide to get the PolarPro Iris collection for £200 or just go all out and get the Osmo action haha I only have just over 3 weeks to decide :O

  • Clark James

    i feel like this is a bit biased: yes the hero 7 has 'worse' stabilisation, but, the osmo action is too stable imo, also theres 1/2 second of lag due to the processing, making actually framing your shots kinda impossible- depends on whether you want to actually frame your shots or just set it and forget, also the gyroscope data is actually recorded in the hero 7 and in the software 'real steady go' you can adjust the smoothing in post to make it as smooth as the osmo action, but you cant unsmooth the osmo action. Buying into the hype of the osmo action just because it has apparantly smoother footage is the equivalent of going to best buy and picking the most saturated and contrasty TV

    Hi Peter, my daughter (Putro Neyma) is 6 years old and really likes your Channel ... "it’s is cool pa" she said ..always :-),
    She also really likes your intro channel and want her intro channel to be like yours, because I love her, I ask permission from you to imitate your Channel intro for him and of course with different nuances and music
