I would like to request Loop Recording be added to the DJI Osmo Action. This is a great feature the GOPro has which would be valueable in the line of work I do thanks you!

bought an osmo action today to replace my hero 7 black... found out there is no looping feature so I guess it'll be going right back to BestBuy.  I'll just give more money to GoPro for a hero 8 seeing how DJI obviously doesnt want my money.

Bump for an update please!! I help film and manage media for several bass fishing pros who compete on the Major League Fishing tour and am constantly in contact with numerous people asking us questions all the time about the best setup for a bass boat to be able to record a fishing tournament and just in general for fishing... It simply isn't feasible to use the DJI Osmo currently unless you have a dedicated video guy dumping footage or changing out a stockpile of 258gb memory cards currently. Fishing is a whole lot of "downtime" in between the action so it is not uncommon to film 8 hours for 10 minutes of content and if the camera is not already recording before the bite it is practically useless...

PLEASE NOTE, I do believe these camera's are superior in every other aspect in my own opinion... It's a major inconvenience for the few of us who have tried to use DJI has been forced back into using GoPro's even though we use DJI drone's and Osmo's for other footage simply due to the fact that the gopro LOOPING mode is by far the most convenient method for fisherman to record a full day of fishing without filling up hard drives or editing immediately after a long day.

I have honestly considered having developer's (family) look into reaching out and attempting this themselves but i know for a fact that the addition of this mode will put the OSMO leagues in head of GoPro in the sport fishing industry and will be used by all of the top touring pro's around the country which will surely drive sales. I cannot speak on the newest model of GoPro to the full extent yet as I have not gotten a lot of real world testing in on it yet but the physical build of the new GoPro's already paves the way for DJI to take over in the fishing world. On the newest models to have the port opened and the charger connected means also exposing the whole battery compartment as the whole side opens up, so unless their media mod make's it decently waterproof, they are basically useless for tournament fishing use.

I mentioned in another thread it hasn't 'appeared' on mine for some reason, I probably wouldn't use it anyway but it's odd if some cameras can't run all the features or didn't take the firmware correctly.
In light of the above ^ perhaps another update will be along soon to improve things.

What is really weird is that I had it on this morning (1080p, 60FPS and RS on) and it recorded the whole journey (about an hour) what is annoying is that even though loop was turned on it is a single file... this is a royal pain in the proverbial as I can't download just the section that I want... I don' have the spare storage on my phone to download the whole thing to then edit on my phone.  The  Mimo app doesn't let you take a snip of the whole file to download...  (the Go-Pro app does, although it is ...e) you have to download the whole thing then edit.

You seem to be confusing the "loop duration" with the file split interval dashcams have.

The setting in Osmo Action tells at what time the camera will start erasing the old files. So if you set it to 5 minutes, the camera will record up to 5 minutes, and start looping (getting rid of the files starting from the oldest). So you will always have a maximum of 5 minutes recording on the card. Individual split file duration is chosen by the camera accordingly (1 minute for a 5 minute loop, 5 minutes for a 20 minutes loop etc.)

This way you can dedicate only a certain amount of your sd card to loop recording without filling it up. If you want to use the whole card, simply change the setting to infinity.

Hope this helps

I would think if it was correctly displayed:  5 minute Looping I see at a 5 minute video Only 1 5 minute video.  Not 5 1 minute videos.  If I chose 1 hour  looping. I should see  how many minutes per video.

That is odd... To make sure I just tested again. At the 5 minute loop setting mine records in 1 minute files, and starts erasing them from the oldest when the recording reaches 6 minutes. So it always has 5 full 1 minute files and a 6th shorter file that it was working on when I hit the stop button.

Cannot imagine why yours is acting differently

Even after I had recorded for 30 minutes, I only got 5 minutes or so total clips in one minute 10 seconds segment. Guess someone should tell DJI what looping means.
1: We all want to use/fill the whole space of the memory card.
2ooping means when it is filled up it will delete the older clips.
3:we have the right to choose the length of the clip, say, 3 minutes, 5 minutes, or 10 minutes, a policy has been adopted by the whole world. When the card is filled up, the oldest clips will be deleted. Any other way of lopping will be regarded as weird.

No, after all the frustrations of looping, the next day I turned on the camera, it wouldn't record anything, I had to do a factory reset, later on I realized the time was not running right, it would start from 0:0, doesn't matter how I set it up, always.

No... this is exactly how GoPro does it. Perfect update... I don't want it to use my entire card only record 5 mins till I stop it. Thanks DJI!

I also see they have infinite loop for people that want it to fill up the card. Not sure if the previous person missed that or I might be late to the thread. Hope everyone has a great new year.
