At this stage, it’s clear that DJI is leading the industry in consumer drone products. Known for their Mavic and Phantom series of drones, DJI produces high-quality camera drones for people and enterprises at multiple price points. However, their inventory expands beyond their aerial products. The company has also released educational robots, a Digital FPV System with goggles and a remote controller, various accessories, and action cameras. DJI Osmo is DJI’s series of action cameras, which come with different features and accessories.


On November 2nd, 2021, DJI released DJI Action 2, the newest member of their action camera series of products. DJI entered the realm of action cameras in 2019 with their Osmo Action camera, the first in what would eventually become their Osmo series. Other members of the series include Osmo Pocket and DJI Pocket 2. With its clever design, new accessories, and advanced features, DJI Action 2 stands out from the others in its series and takes action cameras and the DJI brand to the next level.


Design and Key Features

DJI Action 2 is a wearable action camera. It has an aluminum alloy body that is lightweight but solid with a sleek, minimalistic appearance. Its magnetic locking design lets you interchange accessories easily, quickly, and securely so you can capture everyday activities such as walking in the park or extreme activities such as dirt biking and parkour completely hands-free. According to DJI, DJI Action 2 is their “most powerful action camera yet.” For optimal performance, they have even taken the shape and angle of the lens into consideration so that you can record more of your surroundings with “smooth, detailed footage.”


DJI Action 2 shoots 4K/120fps video and offers an ultra-wide 155° Field of View. It features timelapse, 8x slow motion, digital zoom, and intelligent audio. It’s drop-proof, dustproof, and waterproof at depths of up to 10 meters.


DJI Action 2 utilizes DJI’s latest stabilization technology, RockSteady 2.0 and HorizonSteady, to detect and correct camera shake and rotation in real-time. RockSteady was introduced with DJI’s first foray into the action camera market: the DJI Osmo Action. RockSteady combines electronic image stabilization (EIS) with complex algorithms to deliver stable, shake-free footage. HorizonSteady keeps your footage level.
