Los Angeles-based professional photographer and content creator, I am always on the lookout for new ways to improve my content and offer more value to my followers and clients. Camera gear has always been an extension of our creativity. It doesn’t really matter if I’m taking photos of unique perspectives or moments from everyday life. Adorama asked me to test the DJI Action2 Camera.
I had just one day to capture content so I knew I had to take it along for a day of photography in the city. Since the Mavic Pro in 2016, I have been impressed by DJI products, so I had high expectations for this new DJI Action 2 Camera.
The Key Features of the DJI Action 2 Cam:
- Magnetic versatility
- 4K/120FPS and super-wide FOV
- Portable & wearable
- 10m waterproof
- AI editor
- Stereophonic 4-mic matrix
The Action 2’s amazing performance was incredible, from freeway overlook time lapses to downtown POV shots to Venice with the drone for FPV, and everything in between. As a content creator, the most exciting update is the innovative magnetic design and magnetic lanyard. It’s now easier than ever for you to capture versatile POV/BTS footage on the road. You can swap accessories easily, attach the Action 2 mount to any number of action camera mounts like I did with my tripod, and capture time-lapse videos.
Are you ready to Vlog?
The front-facing camera is another feature that I love. It’s perfect for vlogging. The built-in 4-mic stereo is also available, allowing for crystal-clear audio. You can easily disassemble the Action 2 into two pieces. This makes it easy to attach to a FPV drone to capture amazing action shots.
It’s also very small and light. This makes it easy to pack my camera bag every time I go out. Video clips and photos speak for their self. The quality of the 4K/120FPS footage that I took with the DJI Action 2 Camera was amazing.
The DJI Action 2 exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend it. The Action 2 is a great tool for content creators looking for unique angles and perspectives, action sports enthusiasts, and anyone looking to capture memorable events.
The Power Combo is for those who want to do more with Action 2. It includes a swappable power unit that allows you to film up to 180 minutes. You can also use the microSD card slot. The Dual Screen Action 2 Combo was designed for vloggers. It includes accessories that will help you maximize your creativity. It also includes a front touchscreen module.
These are some more photos from the DJI Action 2 Camera.
Adorama will sell the DJI Action 2 Camera in the Power Combo at $399 or the Dual Screen Combo at $519. You will also find a variety of accessories.
