The Dji Osmo Action cam is not really a surprise, considering they already separated the Osmo Pocket in the Mimo app.

The DJI Osmo Action is such an obvious competitor to the GoPro Hero7 Black that DJI managed to outscale them slightly on almost every spec just to try to be better.

But did they actually succeed? 

Fact is, both are top of the action cam game currently and they are pretty close, but one of them certainly has the edge. 

Read the whole review if you want to find my opinion.



DJI OSMO ACTIOn and Hero 7 Specs

Osmo Action camera specs

GoPro Hero7 Action camera specs

Both action cameras have very similar specs, but the Osmo seems to have the slight advantage with a bigger bitrate of 100mb/s compared to the 78 mb/s, which means less compressed footage, so better quality overall.

This will in turn probably make the files a bit bigger, but it's something I can deal with, personally.

Osmo Action Price and specs

The price has also been strategically chosen to be just under the GoPro Hero7 black, with a price of under $350, the osmo action is becoming one of the more affordable things DJI has to sell while at the same time keeping the standard of quality high.

There aren't many action cameras on the market who can compete with this level of quality at this price range.

The dji Osmo pocket itself might be a better alternative for both when it comes to vlogging and even stabilization, but for an overall sturdier experience, you need a capable action camera that can go up to 11m underwater and sustain some damage!

Osmo Action Video Review

There have been many reviews online of the osmo action cam while at the same time comparing it with the competition and there's no doubt almost every reviewer loved it just as much as I do. The visual results are pretty incredible, nothing less to expect from DJI, if you are to ask me…

Camera quality

The image above is simply a movement blurr difference between the osmo and the hero 7 black. But even more so I have noticed that when in low light, the Hero camera stabilization behaves worse and stutters strangely.

It's pretty obvious overall that the image stabilization of the OSMO is much better, even though it does crop a tiny bit more than the gopro on the far right and the sony on the left.

DJI OSMO ACTION - finally a real GoPro Killer

The Gopro Hero 7 looked like it had no real competition on the market thanks to its amazing image stabilization, but the DJI OSMO action totally blew it out of the blue with even better results.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:


1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.


How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
