I know some might think it is early to start talking about that, but really it is never too early to think about your next product / line of income.

So here is what i would like to see in the Osmo action 2.0.

1. Even better image quality and FPS performance, it seem like the main competitor are already contemplating ( roumours ) 4K / 120 - 1080 / 480, but at least faster 1080p shooting would be nice.

2. I would not mind if the camera became a bit larger to accomodate better electronics / larger battery / larger sensor / better thermal performance. + 5 - 10 mm larger in all directions would not bother me at all, maybe even more.

3. A waterproof universal connector to other components, maybe a hot shoe like connector where you could connect external mic / ecternal light and have a smart connection to a gimbal.
Really there should be no need to open any doors to charge or add periphials, so camera + a LED light cube attached should work under water too.
4. HDR modes also supported by EIS / RS. ( maybe not all of them, maybe just 30 FPS or less / X  resolutions )
5. A option to use a Bluetooth microphone would be convenient.
6. In case doors ASO are removed, maybe add a couple more buttons to change settings, maybe bind functions to, this will be convenient not least under water.
7. Additional WP case, make it in a metal so it have a better chance of moving camera heat to sorounding enviorment ( air or water ) but i am sure this will be a hard task to fulfill as it almost demand a direct contact between camera housing and WP case, and on larger surfaces so heat can be conducted better.
Also i am not quite sure if this could actually worsen the chance of the case inside reaching dewpoint and so have dew generate, WP housing could also be made larger than camsera as in diving situations size dont really matter all that much ( i assume )
With a WP smart connector on the camera itself, the WP case could be made to house additionel battery for longer run times, though divers dont spend hour upon hour under water.

8. camera dedicated gimbal, and made with replaceable 18650 batteries, and the option to mount LED light and external microphone off gimbal and be powered by it for longer run times for vloggers.
Object tracking ASO features with camera and gimbal working together, gimbal to be splash proof.
9. Only replaceable thing on the camera should be battery, no other plugs or doors ( memory card to be housed / replaced in battery compartment )


Feel free to shoot my wishes down and add your own.

Just adding to myself.

If OA 2.0 are made larger, maybe it could be powered by a single 18650 battery ( replaceable ), this would make things so much more easy, and mean a guy like me with a collection of 18650 batteries and supporting chargers could run my OA 2.0 for days just swapping batteries ( i have about 20 of those batteries )
This also mean you could do a screw in cap for the battery compartment, this should make waterproofing better / more simple, but mean memory card could probably not go there.

But just imagine having 3500 MAH available to power your camera, in many cases it will mean one charge / battery will be plenty for a whole day of recording ( not constantly of course )


Using standard components are always best !

PS. As you might know 18650 batteries are 18 mm in diameter and 650 mm long, so thats about as wide as the Osmo action are, and less of what is is thick, so this could almost be done within the current size of the Osmo Action.

An interesting topic !

I suspect as good an idea to use18650’s are, it’s not in dji’s interests to use these - since they have a market for selling extra proprietary batteries and chargers.

A larger sensor would always be good, but then you are hitting the next level up in price point where I suspect things do not sell in such quantity.

It will be very interesting to see what is on the GoPro 8, since I guess the OA 2.0 has to trump some of these features.

Here’s another thought ...... how about Osmo Actions / pocket that have a multi cam network / Bluetooth link so if you are using multiple ‘osmos’  You can synchronise a record start for all of them from one point ?

Can we get external audio working in the first version before they build version 2?

Hehe yeah many are worried about that audio adapter, me i dont even use the build in microphones as what i often record sound awful so better mute it and put some music on instead.
