I think the Robo Camera thing is a gimmick - can see home users getting bored of it pretty quickly.
In a school environment it may work better by helping teach kids how to program etc using applications like Scratch.
as things grow, mixed emotions a lot can be said good and bad. DJI came a long way since May firmware releases more then goprp, adding what people want, and nightlapse is next , we hope.
I returned and got back my DJI who can complain for the price I got mine for.
I wanted Charging while recording, gopro does not offer ot, but my cellphone does. its 2019-202 not 1970.
I wanted Hyper/timewarp finally got it, love to have real time slow down, who knows maybe the next update?
I wanted external mic without protected passwords that stop the product from working, I got it
I wanted profiles to chose from not really but have it if need it.
I wanted a front screen that works with less latacy, now I got it works well especially 2K7 my ideal setting
I wanted 48fps not 50 and I have it to shoot footage.
I wanted Linear do not care for super-view all the time
I wanted the best EIS out there, and got it could use some incramint settings but it works.
A lot we want a lot we do not care for Who wants Livestream when the apps fail to work for it, youtubeworks facebook does not, who wants to stream in 720P when 5 years ago we were streaming 4K out there, yes only if you knew. Other companies are already streaming pass 720P go-figure and be subjected to hotspot, Be great to RC things but all the bells and whistles does not make you the better cameraman just having a working camera gets you the video you want that works.
this Site is more or less not going to see a future if 1 or two people talk..
DJI Osmo Action you did well, see how you hold up to a hero 8 Black maybe this site will get some. so we can share Lol
DJI a company that can not fix A issue at all only fixes in steps. They got the latacy in 4K24, 4K25 and 4K30 a micro second off if you are a Super Picky person, you see it now correctly doing its Job. They now need to get the 4K48, 4K59 and 4K60, corrected. Everything Below 4K is fixed in Latacy that zi am happy with, but the interface is finigy. at times I want to swipe to thescreen it changes things like the res size. nothing is perfect.
As DJI can not do a correct job the ndo not release a Product to Market, By the time they start giving people all the bells and whistles a new camera comes out with added stuff again and we repeat the same sad story all over.
This Holds true for gopro as well. Make it right the first time and let lying dogs lay.
Well sure enoug h4 inch topple cost me a lens crack while this clearly showas gopro go the stronger glass then throwing who knows on it, but the Killer is still did not stop me from filming 20.00 not worth a DJI repalcement . Aftermarket one maybe
Not Because I lik my GoPro. because how GoPro makes settings. I went out and before I set out, I taken my gopro- wait this is a DJI topic, and said Hero 8 Bitrate low, ev-0.5 Sharpness Low, shutter 1/48th, WB 5K, ISO min 100, ISO Max 1600 if not 800 if need be, 4K24F. called it Activity, and defaulted a Mode, and then simply - WAIT its DJI topic. and defaulted my Hero 7, protunes set to OFF and on if need be. SO now I can talk DJI Lol. Could not call a custom but had to use c1, c2 etc.. and could not lock my settings at all. When I prepared it all I swore I had ISO 1600 max, and it clearly would not go higher then ISO 200....
Well Osmo Action I know and thought I make sure I had it perfect is no longer a camera for me YEP For Me, to use with Manual its not the manual you think it is. And that simply Modified my evening clips I wassmart enough to turn off the Rocksteady and well uh not having a Gimbal meant STATIC shots.
So having $1500-2000.00 in camera and gear was just dead weight for the nite. As I edit my Hero 7 and Hero 8 footage, the funniest thing is NOT A SOUL here will show interested , so that said Back to the topic DJI Action camera $282.00 of camera.
MIami Bayside at Nite $1500.00 to $2000.00 in Gear just missing my Gimbal. Have Asked for advice about settings and thought i share the footage wit hall that may be interested . th settings I will post as what was chosen was not correctly done, when checked three times over Custom 1, 2, 3, and here it is.
As I will have a video up of my own just run with the DJI , gopro along for the ride. Firmware 1.70 is bad, does work right, destroys my vids. well push the stabilization to far you are going to get ruined shots a person thinks they can shake the whole day and get great footage. I say learn to walk with the camera. Unless you're using it on a machine then of course find a better way to mount. Been thereon a charter boat. well as long as it was not ruff, it WORKED! stay tuned for the vid
Last day, I shot a Nightlapse came out great, did not worry bout perfection, just placed the camera and see what I got? So I thought I do the same with DJI. I would have liked for a Nightlapse mode on it, a better resolution of how to select it then lit up in blue and small, pressing each time to change it to 4K.
As I will POST up the results here. thank you
