The DJI Osmo Action camera has been officially released. When it was first rumored, many of us had the same thought: how does it compare to the GoPro Hero7 Black? It seems that GoPro got themselves a new competitor in the world of small action cameras, but can DJI beat them? Here are a few side-by-side reviews to show you how the new Osmo Action stacks up against GoPro’s newest action camera.

We Talk UAV have a pretty awesome side-by-side comparison, demonstrating all kinds of different features of the two cameras in parallel. I was personally most interested in stabilization, and from this video, it seems that the DJI compares rather well to the GoPro. But there are many other features tested and compared, including slo-mo, colors, and audio, to name just a few.

Here’s another comparison from iPhonedo. He unboxes and reviews the DJI Osmo Action, and also compares it to the GoPro Hero7 Black.

Finally, here’s one more side-by-side comparison from Kinotika.

The comments from users differ: while some prefer the new DJI Osmo Action, the others claim that they’ll stick to their GoPros. And what’s your verdict after seeing the videos? Would you go for the $50 cheaper DJI Osmo Action, or stick to the GoPro Hero7 Black?

    Who are they trying to fool? We all know GoPro made a deal with them.

    Having an extra screen VS picture quality…

      Vanity mirror with 1-2 second lag and condensation issues. Worthless.

        I’m not sure which Chinese knock off or broken firmware version you have seen but I have 0 condensation issues and no lag with the front screen. And that’s in the Florida heat and humidity.

    Over cropped stabilization, no GPS, no stabilized 4:3, no 2.7K/120fps, jumpy time lapse with movement,… Osmo Action = Worthless action camera. Almost competes with HERO7 Black. Unfortunately, HERO8 is only a month away. Too bad for the DJI GoPro knockoff.
