DJI Osmo Action 3 launched: Features, Specs, Price, and Availability

DJI – the well-known brand for quadcopter drones and gimbals, launched its third iteration of the action camera – Osmo Action 3. With this camera, DJI goes a step backward and takes a similar design approach as the original Osmo Action. For last year’s Action 2 DJI has taken a modular design approach, but that was not worked well for them, as a new design comes with a new set of challenges. Let’s take a closer look at DJI Osmo Action 3.

The camera offers a 4X digital zoom for regular photo mode, 2X zoom for videos more than 60FPS, 4X zoom for videos less than or equal to 60FPS with HorizonSteady Off, and 3X zoom for videos less than or equal to 60FPS with HorizonSteady On.
