Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has had any issue with the DJI Osmo Action 4 and focus issues?
I've only had it a few weeks and everything I've taken is just slightly out of focus.

Is this normal? Whats the minimum focus distance for the camera?

Thanks!

Close focus for OA4 is 40 cm but it is actually sharper at 30cm than my OA3 was.

I can confirm this with my Osmo Action 4.

Thank you for your attention. After testing and analysis, our engineers found that this issue of Osmo Action 3 is caused by a larger internal parameter that some cameras have. It has been resolved in the firmware update of Osmo Action 3 launched in 2022. The camera resolving power of Osmo Action 4 has been further improved than that of Osmo Action 3. If you experience any focus issues, you may upload the original video with the issue so we can check it further. Thank you for your continued support.

I KNEW IT! I always suspected that the focus issue with Action 3 had to do with the camera’s resolving power.

In OA4 no focus issues , its fixed at last . Actually its Osmo Action 3 V2 instead of naming OA4.

There are bigger changes from OA3 to OA4 to be a second edition, remember this is DJI not gopro.

Bigger sensor, high quality lens, gyro data, bluetooth remote control with gps data (extra).
Possible for adjusting sharpness and noise reduction.
10 bit for both D-log M + color mode

Windows have often not native h.265 (HEVC) support, but try view with VLC.
It is also possible to download the needed codec
