DJI Launches Osmo Action 4 with Enhanced Sensor and Color Correction for Scuba Diving

Drone technology specialist, DJI, has introduced the newest addition to its action camera range, the Osmo Action 4. This model features an updated sensor, improved low-light performance, and enhanced color correction capability specifically designed for scuba diving.

The Osmo Action 4 is equipped with a 1/1.3″ sensor, which represents a significant 65% increase compared to its predecessor. With a wide f/2.8 aperture and a 155° ultra-wide field-of-view (FOV), this camera can shoot up to 4K/120fps, capturing exceptional detail even in low-light conditions.

To ensure stable footage, DJI has incorporated advanced image stabilization through its 360° HorizonSteady stabilization modes. This includes RockSteady 3.0/3.0+ for FPV (First Person View) footage and HorizonBalancing/HorizonSteady for horizontal shots.

Notably, the Osmo Action 4 is rated to be waterproof up to 18 meters without the need for an additional housing. It also features an updated advanced color temperature sensor, which produces natural colors without the need for post-processing. A separate 60-meter rated housing is available as an optional accessory or as part of DJI’s ‘Dive Combo’ package.

With a battery life of approximately 2.5 hours (at 1080p/24fps), the Osmo Action 4 also supports fast-charging, requiring just 18 minutes to reach 80% capacity.

The camera comes with an intelligent editing suite through DJI’s LightCut app. This app allows for previews and editing without the need to transfer footage from the camera, making the editing process more efficient. LightCut also has the ability to recognize themes within the footage and automatically edit individual clips into sequences.

Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI, expressed the company’s commitment to high-quality imagery, reliability, and user-centric design. He eagerly anticipates seeing how users utilize the capabilities of the Osmo Action 4 to create breathtaking content that inspires others.
