DJI Osmo Action vs. GoPro Hero 7
I am a big fan of the GoPro Hero 7. It has surpassed my expectations and is a great action camera at a fairly reasonable price. The image stabilization is phenomenal. A year before it’s release I was shooting with a clunky EVO chest mounted gimbal that required additional battery, and generally was just another appliance to pack along. The Hero 7 eliminated the need for all of that. I’ve had used it for mountain bike shoots, Seadoo shoots, ATV shoots, and rock climbing shoots and it has always delivered. What more could I possibly want?
Enter the DJI Osmo Action.
For all intents and purposes the Osmo Action is a GoPro rip-off. It looks very similar, but improves on the Hero 7 by adding a front facing screen and potentially even better stabilization using its Rocksteady stabilization mode.
Mine is set to arrive next week, so I will keep you updated.
