Intermediate Operations

Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) Technology
With DJI’s latest EIS technology, Osmo Action 3 can record super smooth footage for various sports scenes.

· [RockSteady 3.0] A new generation of intelligent stabilization algorithm fuels the latest version of RockSteady EIS, which can effectively eliminate camera shake in all directions. It supports use while recording at up to 4K/120fps, providing a stable and immersive first-person perspective.

· [HorizonSteady] This smart stabilization feature helps to eliminate camera shake in all directions, and even horizontally corrects tilt at any angle. That means footage can remain horizontally level, even through heavy bumps and 360° rotations.

· [HorizonBalancing] This feature corrects the tilt horizontally within ±45°, and supports recording stable 4K/60fps videos.
Watch this tutorial to learn the three EIS modes and their applicable scenarios.


EIS Priority in Low Light
This is a new feature for Osmo Action 3, which contributes to recording stable footage in low light or dark environment. Enabling this feature in low light will remove motion blur, but the shutter speed should be at least 1/200. Image sharpness may be affected when ambient light is too low.
To enable this feature, swipe the screen to the right to disable PRO mode.  


Stereo Recording
Osmo Action 3 is designed with three microphones. Exceptional audio performance means more immersive results. Reception direction can be adjusted for more targeted and accurate sound recording. A hidden microphone at the bottom of Action 3 even suppresses wind noise, giving you more audio-recording confidence in windy or high-speed scenarios.
Switch the camera to Video mode and tap “PRO” to set audio parameters such as Channel, Wind Noise Reduction, and Directional Audio.  


Connecting External Mics
Action 3 is compatible with DJI Mic. Consult the steps below to connect your device to DJI Mic.
1. Connect the receiver of DJI Mic to the USB-C port on Osmo Action 3 using a Type-C cable.
2. Link the receiver and transmitter of DJI Mic.
Watch this tutorial to learn how to link your device to DJI Mic.


Scuba Diving Mode
As a new feature in Osmo Action 3, scuba diving mode is actomatically enabled when the camera is more than 14 m underwater. Once enabled, the Shutter/Record Button will be locked. Press the Quick Switch button to start or stop recording.
To enable scuba diving mode, swipe down the camera view to enter the Control Menu, tap “Scuba Diving Mode (>=14m)”, and press and hold the Record Button for 5 seconds.  
Press the Quick Switch Button five times to disable scuba diving mode.
* In the event of scuba diving at depths over 16 m, it is recommended to equip your Action 3 with the waterproof case. In this case, there is no need to enable scuba diving mode.


Custom Mode
Osmo Action 3 supports saving shooting parameters in custom mode, which can then be used directly to shoot similar scenes. You can save up to five custom modes.
Swipe down the camera view and tap the custom mode icon to save the current configuration as a custom mode.
Tap “Delete” to remove a saved custom mode.

Charging Methods

Why is my Action 3 overheating during charging or shooting?
Osmo Action 3 can shoot 4K/120fps videos at a bitrate of up to 130 Mbps, and the actual video file generated in one minute can be as large as 900 MB. With its compact and portable design, Action 3 inevitably dissipates heat when processing such a large amount of data in a short period of time, which is an irresistible physical law. The camera was designed with special attention to the heat dissipation issue. To ensure the normal performance of the camera, the internal heat is designed to be conducted to the lens cover, front and rear screens, and body itself through heat sinks and silicone grease. Additionally, strict tests have been made to ensure that the camera temperature is within a reasonable range during long-term recording.
