Hi All
I have been looking to purchase an OP 3 in the US and the normal places (Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo, Adorama, etc) are all sold out or have delivery dates at least a month out (I need it for a trip starting May 31st), and so I was considering purchasing it from Amazon Japan because they have it, and with the yen being so weak to the dollar, it would actually be cheaper for me to buy it there. I guess my main concern is if I would be able to change the on board language from Japanese to English and also if I am able to activate it in the US?
Anyone have any advice they can offer on this? Has anyone done something like this where they purchase from an overseas shop and use it in US?
Thanks!!

Whilst is might work ok, the problem you may find is if you need to claim on the warranty, the logistical side of things is a pain and can be impossible unless you have someone living in Japan.

So I assume then that you’d be unable to buy the DJI care refresh in the US to use with a device purchased in Japan?

To be fair, Im not 100% sure on that one, i reckon ya could be wasting ya money on the Care Refresh as I think DJI would just send it back to you untouched, I could be wrong mind, lets see what others say.

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. You can normally use a DJI Osmo Pocket 3 in the United States after purchasing it in Japan. However, the original warranty can only be applied within the same region where you purchase a DJI product, therefore, if you need to claim a warranty repair, you need to send the product to Japan. Hope this clarifies your query.
