I started a thread on the OP forum with videos from the month long travel in Asia between Xmas and New Year. I recently picked up a Osmo Action as both my OP was on loan (Graduation season) and I need something for a trip to Las Vegas. I'll be posting my OA videos here but you can also see my OP vidoes on this thread, all videos are raw unedited:

First video is a night time HDR shot of the water fountain show at the Bellagio. It seems the F2.8 aperture is not as bad as I thought it would be.

Maybe instead of leaving immediately for Zion National Park I should spend some time in Vegas!

But as I noted in an eleven year old video from my slides and being somewhat prescient:

Unable to have both HDR and Rocksteady in 4K kinda make HDR pointless except for stationary shots:

Thanks for posting these.
How does OA fare against OP in your opinion? Which would be your primary choice if you had to pick one? I own OP, but I'm really tempted by the practicality of OA, both in terms of assumed ruggedness and the infinite zoom to avoid the dreaded OP out of focus takes. That being said, pocketability is essential for me, so I'd use OA mainly without grip - would that produce satisfactory results for travel and shooting casual family videos? Practically all OA reviewers on YT used some sort of a grip or mount.

I'm just a casual user. To me, I'm going to stick with the OP most of the time. I like the options you have with a gimbal vs EIS/Rocksteady. I also find the OA harder to hold well without a grip. I'll only use the OA for fast moving shots (from a car, bike or running) or where I would expect to get wet (outdoor shot during rain season).

It really would have been nice if it had a tripod mounting hole or, at least, a place to attach a lanyard.  The camera is really very small and there's no gimbal mechanism to worry about.  So it can easily be tossed into a pocket, purse or pack.

I have both walked with it and hiked with it, only using what I'd call its tripod accessory piece.  It provides a good grip.  I distinguish walking - fairly level terrain with some irregularities and hiking where the terrain was much more rugged and irregular.  I did have a lanyard attached when doing these activities in case I tripped or dropped the camera.  This arrangement allowed me to weave my fingers between the camera and the round tripod piece.

Nice lens cap! What was it, I need something till the DJI lens cap is available. I wish it would ship with one.

I, too, found it surprising that a $350 dollar camera did not ship with a $2 lens cap.  Pretty stingy move!


I hope to have a bit stiffer one from Skyreat this week.  Also available from Amazon.

The red one is quite soft and while it does protect the lens, I think it could get pushed in against the lens.

But it is:

And it arrived very quickly actually.

A handheld HDR shot on the bus, guess it would look OK if stablized in post.
