    What do you guys think?! Would you buy Osmo Action Over GoPro Hero 7 Black?

      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

      Gopro over DJI just because in action cams you need(I need!!) the FOV..

    Okay Chocolates are not FREE I accept. but how to get these kinds of stuff from these companies like DJi and More others.

  • 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!

  • RHP Mountain & Trail

    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

    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?

  • Alejanthropy Ponce de León

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

  • Buck Brothers Projects

    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?

    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

    349!!!! What that’s a good deal ! It looks way better then the GoPro !!! I’m sold on this for Surfing !! And FPV when it’s on my hat mount ... they just need to make a small one like the GoPro session ! That’s my favorite cam to use why surfing .. problem I have with GoPro it does not justice on the waves it makes them look way smaller then what they are and at times it looks like I’m not even on a wave so the footage becomes junk 🤦🏽‍♂️.

    Pete, I thought you would know that a sharper image doesn't equal more detail.. The oversharpening of the Osmo looks like crap.

    I returned my go pro hero 7 after 2 days at bestbuy cause it was freezing, unresponsive, heating up, and even just changing the settings in the menu it was decreasing the battery life. All the wifi, and high settings were on! Hopefully the Osmo Action will not disappoint, since I put in an order already!

    Would you ever do a comparison of a dji osmo pocket and the dji osmo action? They are marketed to different people but I could still see the overlay for having a steady camera shot.

    Osmo Action: better stabilisation, better metering. Hero 7: better colour (yes, I'm from the UK) science, WAY better sound quality from internal mic. Will be looking at one of these in June (Osmo Action not out here yet) and whatever is cheapest then will more than likely win out. GoPro currently £50 ($63 USD, $85 CAD) more expensive

  • SupermotoFlow
    SupermotoFlow 23 days ago

    The thing i miss from the old action cams as a Motocyclist is that the Wind noises are making big backsteps ... They try to make small cases and more microphones over the camera and then fix it with audio corrections BUT what was actually pretty good in gopro hero 3 and 4 i believe is that you had a mic on the back and together with the plastic case you had very good engine sounds with almost no wind sound... My solution to that would be they should make 2 mic or more: front and back and let you choose in the Menu wich one you want or all and automatic.... + they need cases with maybe small windfilters or something...

    at 6:52 look at both camera's background surrounding for comparison. Mostly the Buildings.

    On DJI wow... The Buildings and surrounding background seems to be very stable and no shaking at all.

    While on the Hero 7, its shaking, a LOT.

    But if compared that way, its very noticeable

    And so far in UK, DJI Osmo Action is £329 while Hero7 is £379

    DJI Is out for Blood lol
