DJI Osmo Action 3 design
Action 3 Action 3 appears remarkably similar to the original DJI Action camera, which was an excellent camera, however, it may have been a bit too much like GoPro. This Action 3 may still carry the typical look of an action camera however, it’s unique in a few key aspects. One of them is its magnetic quick release mechanism, which is the same as its predecessor, the Action 2, and which has been upgraded significantly to make it more durable and solid.
The magnetic clip system allows users to connect and remove the camera from different mounts, or just fix the camera onto an aluminum surface. Although such a method may be a bit unsettling regarding its reliability, I can attest for the trustworthiness for the magnet since it remained securely locked and secured in an extension rod through an automobile window at speeds of 40 mph. I’ve used with the Action 2 on top of an unmanned drone at higher speeds than the speed of. One important thing to be aware of is that sometimes the magnetic clip does not snap perfectly initially and it’s always a good idea to check the connection again.
Action 3 Action 3 is unique in that its front-facing screen has been made touch-sensitive, which allows you to change settings even when the camera is in front of you, like when you shoot vlog-style videos. Since I often shoot YouTube videos that resemble vlogs I really appreciate this feature.

The default color mode may be too saturated, but I like the overall look of it. D-cinelike color profiles are available for those who prefer more editing flexibility and create your own design when post-processing.
Action 3 Action 3 can shoot in 4K with 120fps and up to 240fps at 1080p. The 1080p resolution is as ugly and mushy as you’d expect, but 4k 120fps does look nice. The resolution is limited to 4k that’s fine for those who want to upload straight-out camera footage with no editing. However, it’s not up against the goPro Hero11 black’s 5.3k max resolution, and bigger sensor, which provides more flexibility when it comes to post-processing.
