You have your travel plans scheduled, and have started packing your bags, but have you thought what camera you are going to use while you travel. You might think that your old point and shoot camera are quite good enough, or else you might use your mobile camera as well for capturing moments. Most of the smartphones nowadays are packed with decent cameras so it might not be a bad idea at the end of the day. You might have other thoughts as well, like upgrading your old camera to a new DSLR. Options might be many, and it all depends on your budget as well as preference. However, these days most of the travelers use action camera or sometimes it is called a sports camera. These cameras are best for capturing moments on the go, no need for any presets or formal poses. We already have known brands such as GoPro and SJCam, who are the leaders when it comes to action cameras. Now we also have Osmo Action camera, which has features that can equally compete with the likes of GoPro, SJCAM, and Yi. But, the best part is, it is going to cost you less.
The Osmo Action camera has been launched by DJI, and it seems its directly compete with some of the popular models of GoPro. DJI is already a brand to reckon when it comes to drones or drone cameras. Many popular bloggers, as well as celebrity travellers, have already endorsed their drone cameras. But this is the first time when they have come up with a sports camera. In this article, we will explain why the Osmo Action camera is good for you, and why you should buy it at the first chance when it is launched in India. To start with, DJI Osmo Action Camera is completely dustproof and shockproof. The company claims that, even if the camera is dropped from a height of 5ft, it will be safe since it is shockproof. The best part is, it is waterproof but the camera is not placed inside any housing or casing. This actually doesn’t kill the looks, unlike some of the other waterproof cameras which are placed inside a plastic case. Osmo Action camera is also freezeproof. As per DJI, the camera remains perfectly freezeproof, even at a temperature of -10-degree centigrade. So, capture your snow moments without worrying about your camera. It has got a design which is durable enough and guarantees longevity. So, if you are looking for an action camera which is durable, waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, then Osmo action camera is for you.
Unlike some other action cameras, which has got only one screen, this camera has two color screens built into front and back. This is absolutely unique about this camera, and in fact, it is only one of those selected action cameras which has got display screens on both sides. The size of both the front screen and the rear screen is 2.25 inches and 1.4-inch display screen. Both the screens are repellent to water as well as fingerprints. If you are a professional blogger or a professional photographer, then you can do scene composition at ease with the help of two screens. We can say that the camera is best for vlogging, and even for taking selfies. The screen is bright enough with 750 nits, which makes it perfectly suitable for outdoor shooting. This means that you can view the display easily even under a bright sun. Often dim screens are not visible under the bright sun, which just prevents you from taking some perfect videos or snaps.
There are three dedicated function buttons on the camera, for powering on the camera, recording, and toggle through video as well as capture modes. It has got a feature called snapshot, that allows you to turn on the camera, and trigger the recording within a span of a couple of seconds. The snapshot feature can be accessed by pressing the shutter button. The camera can be operated with the help of voice commands, which just adds to the ease of use for the user.
This action camera has a 1/2.3-inch sensor which is capable of capturing 12-megapixel photos (JPG or RAW) along with the 4K video up to 60fps at the rate of 100Mbps. The sensor of the camera is located behind a three-glass aspherical lens structure, which effectively reduces any form of distortion. The camera also has anti-fingerprint as well as anti-reflective coatings. The Osmo action camera is completely capable of High Definition video, even in difficult lighting conditions where shooting is challenging. We have checked the sample HDR images, and we can say that the details are perfectly detailed. The camera is perfectly stabilized with the help of RockSteady Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS). This is the same technology, which DJI uses in the drone as well. So, we can say that it is going to be extremely effective, in the fast-moving scenes. Some of the other features which can be found in this camera are:
- A removable battery
- Dual microphones
- One speaker
- Slow motion (8x at 1080p/240fps or 4x at 1080p/120fps)
- Manual exposure
This camera is compatible with a larger collection of accessories. This camera will be available in India by the end of June, in both online as well as offline stores. Even though there is no confirmation on the price, but it is believed that the camera will be priced between 15,000 to 20,000 rupees.
