DJI Osmo Action 4 action camera $299 (was $399)



At just 5.1 ounces and small enough to fit in a pocket, the DJI Osmo Action 4 fits a truly impressive amount of imaging tech into a tough little body. The 1/1.3-inch sensor is larger than what you’ll find in some other action cameras or your smartphone, which makes for better light capture and depth-of-field effects. It shoots 4K video at 120fps and offers high-end cinematic video formats.

This is an action camera, so it’s fully waterproof down to 59 feet. Plus, it’s freeze-proof, crush-resistant, and reinforced to withstand drops. It has a touchscreen on both the front and back, as well as a super-advanced image stabilization system inside, which comes in handy for everyone from extreme athletes and aspiring vloggers to primate portrait photographers.
