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

      Dji seems awesome, especially when you compare to the gopro7 Black, stabilisation looks amazing, gopro seems well over saturated with its colour grading

      Hey! Thanks for the review. Have you used both with out of the box settings (i.e. Protune off on GoPro and same, default settings on the DJI)?

      Nice vid. However, some things that are missing are actually important. Like, can you charge the battery by just plugging a cable to the camera? If so, can you charge and shoot at the same time? Can you turn both screens off while shooting? What does the video look like with the stabilization on at higher framerates? What were "those settings" you used for the outdoor-indoor test? What would it look like if you just started indoors in the first place? (I mean it should come down to the usual stuff like f-values of the lenses, resolution+fps, iso's and sensor size). 1 hour of footage... I don't know what the standard is, but that seems poor. You'd be outdoors for a full day and only get 1-1,5 hours!?
      I actually really like the way this cam handles image stabilization, but will wait until either I test it myself, or watch a more thorough review.

      Would buy this in a heartbeat. The only worries I have about the osmo action are the durability and skin tones, as you demonstrated. The pluses with this for me would be the better stabilisation and if you noticed in the clip where Pete is running there is less distortion with the osmo action.

      DJI action is goodlooking camera, Im a fan of it, but i think It to much stabilitě and from all of those action footage it makes a drone-like footage. Sometimes its better and sometimes it does not, it really depends

        Killer action cam video!! Will be buying one when budget is all good. By then there probably will be more improvements. This will make the action cam wars great now the ball is in Sony's and GoPro's corner! I love it!!

          Needs a wider lens to be an action camera, maybe next time.

            Competition is ALAWYS better for the consumer! Hopefully they BOTH succeed and prices are lowered for the consumer! I think the high price is mainly influenced by the software development and continued improvement. The price for actually fabricating the camera NOWHERE justifies the $399.00 per unit!

              Hero 7 colors seem a bit more saturated and pleasing to my eye. Stabilization is only slightly better in DJI Osmo. In the lowlight, the OSMO wins. Audio thru FACEBOOK is richer on the GoPro 7.

                Dji osmo action is definitely better in stabilization and picture looks better too.

                      Hi Peter, great first look, does the Osmo action cam also record GPS? could you also do an audio test with an external mic like the Purple Panda Lavalier Mic or a similar lavalier mic, seems you can use a third-party microphone through the USB-C port by the 3.5mm adapter, i'm sure a lot of moto-vloggers would like to use a more simplistic external mic solution over GoPro's expensive and bulky mic adapter. Thanks for the video.

                                                Is it also waterproof? That battery setup is different to the Hero.

                                                    Would be interesting to see Osmo vs. Sony action cam.

                                                      I think the is the camera I'm going with for my next trip to the Philippines. It includes everything I've ever wanted in an action camera without the need of any bring along gear that will hold me back from the full experience of the trip while recording beautiful footage with my beautiful wife and daughter along the way.

                                                        I need a camera that can handle heat up to 300 degrees F. LOL I dunno. For what this style camera is made to do, i think the GoPro7 is less "jerky" and seems to hold enough detail in the shot to warrant, not purchasing a second "action water proof cam" If you don't own the GoPro 7 already, i still give a nod to GoPro. Then again...

The GoPro is over saturated that why it looks warmer, but I would say it's not warmer but infact the GoPro is cooler based on the blue tint it boost. I'm really loving the look on the dji footage!!!
