Unboxing Action: Hands-On with the All-New DJI Action 2

DJI just launched DJI Action 2, the highly anticipated successor to Osmo Action. This all-new magnetically versatile action camera is available now and can be purchased as part of two different combos. We got our hands on the DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo to give you a taste of what it’s like to unbox and to see what’s inside.

First Impressions of the Key Modules

Right out of the box, the camera unit and the front touchscreen module are the first two things that catch your attention. Both are cuboid-shaped, made of sleek coin-grey metal, and have a bezel-less OLED screen on one of the sides. The identical-sized modules are roughly as big as a watch face and weigh about as much as a golf ball.

A Closer Look at the Modules

On the bottom of the camera unit and top of the front touchscreen module, we can see the connection pins. When connected, they allow for the two modules to communicate with each other.

Let’s Talk Features

DJI Action 2’s innovative magnetic design makes connecting with accessories and modules easy. Simply snap one on and start recording from a completely new perspective.

The world as you see it

With DJI Action 2’s wearable accessories, you can remain in the moment as the action unfolds. The magnetic lanyard lets you wear the camera directly on your chest, and the magnetic headband can be worn on your head. Both allow you to capture FPV footage while keeping your hands free.

The new benchmark for content creators

DJI Action 2 shoots video at up to 4K/120fps and boasts a super-wide 155 FOV°. Your detail-rich footage really will stand out from the rest.

Adventure-ready design

The main camera unit of DJI Action 2 is drop-proof, dust-proof, and can be used at depths of up to 10 m.

Upgraded Stabilization

DJI has completely revamped the stabilization system for Action 2. With RockSteady 2.0 and HorizonSteady, you can lock your footage to a level horizon and enjoy smoother footage than ever before.

Creative shooting

DJI Action 2 lets users shoot show-stopping timelapse, slow motion, and close up shots.
