Which Action is for me?

The original Osmo Action introduced DJI fans to new cinematic opportunities with its groundbreaking dual-screen design and RockSteady electronic image stabilisation. Its compact hard-shell body provided limitless mounting and framing opportunities for capturing dynamic angles.

The Osmo Action is still a great action camera that can be used in a plethora of scenarios. Action 2 however, takes everything to the next level with a smaller, lighter design that packs a more powerful camera.

The new mini design of the Action 2 offers all-new mounting possibilities for handheld or handsfree operation to capitalise on your creativity.

Vlogging with an action camera is now easier than ever with the Action 2 Front Touchscreen Module that integrates with a simple magnetic clip for an all-in-one vlogging solution that doesn’t require an external microphone. Plus, with the Power Module, you can record for longer than ever before during extended adventures or long sports matches.

If you’re after an action camera that’s great for capturing more than just the action, DJI Action 2 is the ideal all-in-one solution for you!

Is the Action 2 worth the upgrade?

If you love using the Osmo Action to capture your action-packed adventures, you’ll love the new Action 2 with its smaller form factor, improved camera and innovative new versatility. The Action 2 improves on the Osmo Action in every area and with RockSteady 2.0 and HorizonSteady, action footage has never looked this smooth.

The Action 2 starts at $609 for the Power Combo and includes everything you need to get started. If you’ve always wanted to try recording your beach trips, stunts, extreme sports or other adventures, now is the perfect time with the new DJI Action 2.
