But even your calculations then prove that someone is misleading, isn't it DJI?

Btw it's not me that is downvoting you if you wonder, just the grumpy old guy that still doesn't know why raw is better than jpg

Yes I totally agree that it should not say 30cm.
But if it is not sharp at atleast 50cm then there is bad focus indeed.

I couldn't even see at 50 cm...that's why the multiple of 3...

A jpeg is a raw file edited by your camera , a raw file is a file you have to edit yourself. So raw is not better than jpeg until its edited by someone who knows what he's doing . I have seen some of your editing and my advice would be to let the camera edit it for you and I include video in that. Lots of people can create great edited photos from raw images and log footage, usually talented people who can edit.

I understand.

If only some 3rd party would make macro filters for OA3

I'm keeping my fingers crossed because I haven't seen a single one that meets the manufacturer's 30cm, not even one. Well, if it is a multiple of up to 3, then I believe that it will please, because it is indeed made with reason, except for the intentional typo of the manufacturer's specification, without a doubt.

It's good that I keep the whole test interval with the previous problematic cameras, the comparison will be easier

finally I have a camera produced in November in my hands Unfortunately, these days I have a hell of a lot of work and travel and no time left for tests. At first things look significantly better than the old units, but the focus is certainly NOT perfect

It is, but I think most people here have got their camera fixed/replaced for now.

Just add if yours is not or with questions.

Hi everybody, I now have my third camera.

My first was 09/22, which I sent back, because of focus issue. DJI sent me a new one: 08/22 and I was quite satisfied with the image quality. But after my last vacation I noticed, that my face (and the overall quality) was a bit mushy, I did not care at all in the last months, because in my opion and after the FW Updates the quality was just fine. But when you once notice, you´ll always see it.

So, I have DJI Care and without any questions asked DJI sent me within 2 days a new camera. In the box was only the cage and the camera. No battery, because I did not sent back my old battery.

Anyways: I got a 02/2023! And its (for me) perfect.

Perfect Service DJI! (I once had a Gopro 11 and the service really sucked!)

Mine is on its way to Germany for repair/replacement.
I have focus issue on the edge mainly, and cinelike mode is just unusable, quality is even worse in this mode.
Batch was 2022/12, received 2 weeks ago.

I hope to get it good repaired on return, or get a good replaced one. Finger crossed !

So are people STILL seeing Focus issues with their brand new Osmo Action 3 ?

I have one on the way tomorrow and don't plan on starting a lottery to find a perfect one.

If this is still happening with new production devices, I may as well give it a big swerve

Only if you get an older batch. Safest is to buy from shops that have their stock recently filled up.

Purchased from UK Amazon a few days ago, and it was sent from 30826, Garbsen, Hannover DE

Do DJI have a main warehouse in Germany

So am I looking for a production date ?

Units made from August-October is worst ones with most cases with bad focus.
November and later should have good focus in all cases.

You will probably get a new unit from this year so nothing to worry about, but we all are here to help you.

Thanks all
Is this a known fault then from DJI

Was there a recall due to all the faulty units, or are people just sending theirs in and DJI are doing a free (repair) swap?

Seeing heaps of YouTube videos and you can just see it's out of focus on some.
