DJI reveals new modular DJI Action 2

by W. Andrew Powell

DJI announced their update for the DJI Action camera series with the new DJI Action 2 today, a modular action camera with a magnetic system for attaching a range of accessories.

Dustproof, waterproof, and drop-proof, the 56 gram device has a 1/1.7” CMOS sensor that captures 12MP photos and 4K/120 fps video with a wide-angle 155° field of view. The camera can shoot up to 8x slow motion at 1080p / 240ips, and has a built-in internal memory of 32 GB, plus a MicroSD slot.

Paired with a wide range of accessories, the Action 2 can attach to traditional action camera mounts, and DJI also offers a number of magnetic accessories, from a pendant to wear the device, to a Bluetooth remote, and the new DJI Mic system.

Made for vlogging, hands-free timelapses, sports, and just capturing everyday moments, the Action 2 looks like a versatile tool for content creators.

The DJI Action 2 camera is rated IP68, and will work up to 10 meters underwater without the waterproof housing. The camera offers RockSteady 2.0, Electronic Image Stabilization, HorizonSteady, and runs up to 70 minutes on its own. With the Front Touchscreen module, it will run for up to 160 minutes, and up to 180 minutes with the power module.

Action 2 features include Slow Motion, Hyperlapse and Timelapse, QuickClip, Livestream, and UVC so you can also use it as a web cam for conference calls or streaming.

Key accessories for the action camera include the front touchscreen module, power module, magnetic lanyard, magnetic ball-joint adapter mount, remote control extension rod, floating handle, waterproof case, magnetic headband, macro lens, and mic system.
