GoPro Hero 8 and DJI Osmo Action: Which will win?

By  Sigismondo Eisenhower 2019-09-25 2270 0

Last week, GoPro determined that GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max 360 will be released on October 1, 2019. And DJI also released its first action camera, DJI Osmo action on May this year. DJI Osmo action comes with DJI Osmo action dual-color screen, super RockSteady augmentation technology, and 4K HDR video function. Does GoPro Hero 8 will beat DJI Osmo action?

GoPro release the new models, DJI release the new accessories.

It is rumored that the GoPro Hero 8 sports camera can be equipped with an external microphone, LED lights, external screen, and external accessories will be released with the new product. DJI is not to be outdone in the use of accessories. On September 20th, DJI Mall will package the Osmo Action waterproof case, ND dimming filter, audio adapter, mini tripod, and silicone protective cover. The meaning of the group battle is obvious.

Among them, Osmo Action waterproof case and audio adapter are the two most demanding accessories for sports camera users. The Osmo Action waterproof case provides waterproof protection for the camera up to 60 meters underwater; the audio adapter can be used to convert the USB-C interface on the camera to a universal 3.5mm audio interface through the audio adapter for professional-grade recording. Demand, especially when recording Vlogs, provides a more pure recording. DJI really understands what users need.

According to the current leaked data, the biggest upgrade of GoPro Hero 8 is the ability to record 4K 120fps or 1080p 480fps video, and the new lens should also bring higher picture quality. If the information is accurate, this parameter is slightly better than Osmo Action.

GoPro and DJI both create new design

The revolutionary innovation of Osmo Action is that it has expanded the application of sports cameras in addition to sports shooting through breakthroughs in product development and design: First, the use of front and rear dual color screen design makes self-timer or Vlog shooting more convenient. Second, RockSteady 's intelligent debounce algorithm can independently recognize the camera's jitter in all directions and effectively eliminate it, making the video picture smoother and smoother. Third, the interactive system is similar to the operation mode of the mobile phone, making it easier for users to get started.

GoPro has to beat Osmo Action and must do better in these areas. According to the current situation, GoPro adopts a solution to design new housing to connect expansion accessories such as microphones, LED lights, and external screens to avoid design flaws in the product itself. The external screen is more convenient for Vlog shooting, and the miniature external microphone can easily and quickly improve the recording effect. The LED light will also be a big boost in the dark.

However, the additional design is used to solve the design plan that the user just needs. On the one hand, the user's purchase cost is increased, and on the other hand, the new use problem can be brought about. For example, the external screen is certainly not integrated, and the front and rear screens are convenient to use, and Sports shooting scenes are often extreme situations, and adding a combination of accessories is likely to be easily damaged. In addition, GoPro has always been criticized by users, and it is a problem of fever and becoming a dog. I don't know if it continues to exist on gopro8.


It is not necessary that the above 3 solutions can fix the GoPro SD card error for you because of unpredictable accidents and conditions. However, it is important for all users to keep existing files and recover lost photos and videos first from the GoPro SD card.
