I dont have an OA yet but waiting for more reviews and to win the free one (hint)
But It seems to tick some boxes. especially the H.264 codex. My pc can`t handle the H.265 in my gopro so if I want 4k
I have to convert it anyway. Which I am not sure the best way and I am sure my results have lowered the quality.
But 4k from my mavic air works great on my pc. Playback, editing rendering works like a charm.
So I am guessing I will get the same results from OA..

I have both the Osmo Action and the Hero 7 Black. The Osmo Action is by far better IMHO. The only thing the OA is missing is the option for an external microphone, but DJI is promising that very soon.

Both mics are not good. I always use an external mic on the GoPro, and for now I use a Tascam DR-05 with a lavaliere mic with the Osmo Action and sync the audio in post. The audio adapter for the Osmo Action should be out in the next few weeks from what I've heard.

Yeah I saw a video where Casey Neistat was showing off the GoPro hero 7 and when water gets in the mic, it sounds bad.

Osmo action is really bad at times under water too, not always. My hero 6 did a much better job underwater.
Good to know. I'll have to search youtube for some underwater comparison vids between the GP7 and OA.
Also about the mic, in my experience anytime you make it waterproof the microphone suffers.

Well, reading these "older" threads - a few weeks has morphed into a few months and ....Fortunately, for me, I don't blog and don't need an external mic but it is a sad situation for those who really want it.
