DJI Osmo Action 5 Pro: First 'Pro' Action Camera from DJI

DJI Osmo Action 5 Pro: First ‘Pro’ Action Camera from DJI

It’s been almost a year since DJI introduced the Osmo Action 4, a commendable mid-range action camera that positioned itself as a competitor to GoPro's products.

Since that release, DJI has diverted its attention to other camera categories, unveiling new RS camera gimbals and drones like the Avata 2 and Mini 4K, each catering to various budgets and needs. There are even whispers about a forthcoming Air 3S drone.

Market Activity and Competitors

While DJI has remained relatively silent on the action camera front since the Osmo Action 4, competitors such as GoPro (with its Hero 12 Black) and Insta360 (with models like the Ace, Ace Pro, X4, and Go 3S) have continued to release new products. However, recent leaks indicate that DJI may soon re-enter the action camera market.

A filing with the UAE’s Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA), uncovered by trusted leak source @Quadro_News, hints that DJI’s next action camera will be named the Osmo Action 5 Pro.

Speculations and Expected Features

The filing doesn’t provide many details, only associating the model number AC004 with the marketing name “Osmo Action 5 Pro.” The term “Pro” is noteworthy, as it is the first time DJI has used it in their action camera range, possibly indicating significant upgrades.

The Osmo Action 4 came equipped with a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor. Rumors now suggest that the Osmo Action 5 Pro might adopt the 1-inch sensor seen in DJI’s Osmo Pocket 3 handheld camera. This enhancement could make the Osmo Action 5 Pro a strong contender against models like the Insta360 One R, which features a Leica-co-engineered 1-inch sensor, and the 8K-capable Insta360 Ace Pro.

Anticipated Launch

The leak does not specify when the Action 5 will be released. However, considering DJI’s previous release patterns, a global launch for the Osmo Action 5 series in summer 2024 seems plausible.
