DJI has announced the third iteration of its Osmo series of action cameras, the Osmo Action 3. It is touted as the most powerful action camera DJI has ever made. So let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the DJI Osmo Action 3 in Nepal.

DJI Osmo Action 3 Overview:

Design

The Action 3 comes in a one-piece design similar to the first-gen Osmo Action. It is waterproof up to 16m without a case and DJI also offers a special case if you want to dig even deeper underwater.

Likewise, the Osmo Action 3 is the first action camera to feature dual touch screens—one on the front and one on the back. This lets users access camera settings from any angle. The touchscreen is also Gorilla Glass protected and can withstand 1.5m drops (5ft). The screens also have a hydrophobic coating, allowing you to use them even with wet fingers.

Videography

The Osmo Action 3 has a 1/1.7-inch sensor, can shoot 4K videos at 60fps and 120fps, and has a 155° field of view (FoV). For a variety of dynamic shooting scenarios, the action cam also has three distinct image stabilization options.

The first is RockSteady 3.0, which provides a stable and immersive first-person perspective at up to 4K/120fps. There’s also a HorizonSteady mode, which eliminates camera shake from all angles and keeps the horizon level regardless of camera orientation. Finally, HorizonBalancing technology can correct horizon tilt in footage by up to 45 degrees.

It can also shoot vertical videos, for which the Action 3 includes a protective frame with two attachment points allowing you to quickly switch between horizontal and vertical video mode.

Rest of the specs

The action camera has a run time of 160 minutes at 1080p/30fps resolution and no EIS support. DJI has also improved the thermals on the Osmo Action 3, allowing for continuous 4K/60fps shooting until the battery runs out of power. It charges quickly as well, reaching 80% in 18 minutes. A full charger, however, takes about 40 minutes.
