Brent Rose, The Verge: "DJI Osmo Action vs GoPro Hero7 Black vs Sony RX0ii"

I’m not in the market for an action camera right now, but if I were, you’d have a tough time convincing me that GoPro is the camera to pick over DJI.

I’ll say that again, I would strongly consider DJI’s offering based on the review above over the competing offering from GoPro.

This is unbelievable due to the fact that this is a first generation offering from DJI; their first action camera rivals GoPro. GoPro, of course, is the Kleenex or Q-Tip of action cameras and has been iterating on their offering for 15 years. DJI, on the other hand, is better known as a drone manufacturer than a camera manufacturer. This release certainly has me more excited about the future of their offshoot cameras than their drones. Their drones, while impressive in their own right, don’t have the broad market appeal of extremely high quality, affordable video camera.
