Back in 2016, GoPro tried to rival DJI‘s renowned drones by releasing the Karma, but failing to appeal to the market, the model was shortly discontinued. This year, DJI is striking back at GoPro with its very own action camera.

Named Osmo, the action camera comes dustproof, shockproof when dropped up to 5 feet or 1.5 meters, waterproof down to 36 feet or 11 meters without a housing, and freezeproof down to 14°F, or -10°C. Outside, the Osmo holds two color screens: a 2.25-inch touchscreen on the back and a 1.4-inch display on the front. Both screens are sufficiently bright for use in direct sunlight, with screen brightness levels measuring at 750 nits. With only three buttons on the device, the Osmo keeps things simple and clean.

Image quality-wise, the Osmo utilizes a 1/2.3-inch sensor capable of taking 12-megapixel photos — either JPEG or RAW — and can shoot 4K video at up to 60 frames per second at 100 Mbps. On top of the sensor is a glass aspherical lens designed to reduce distortion and warping, finished with an anti-fingerprint and anti-reflective coating. It’s also capable of shooting HDR video at an extra three stops of dynamic range, allowing the camera to capture abundant detail even in low light conditions. To top things off, DJI has implemented its world-class tech from its drone line, making the Osmo the first DJI handheld camera to use the company’s RockSteady Electronic Image Stabilization technology. To see sample footage from the Osmo, check out the video below.

If you’re looking to buy one, the DJI Osmo Action Camera will be available May 22 at a retail price of $349 USD, but you can head over to Adorama now to pre-order one.

And for more tech news, Apple is reportedly delaying its 5G iPhone chip until 2025.
