Top 8 DJI Osmo Action Accessories
Updated: Jul 7, 2020
If you're not one to go for mainstream items, then you probably don't have a GoPro.
Instead, you might have the DJI Osmo Action, which is GoPro's worthy opponent.
To get the most out of your camera, you have to get the proper gear. Here are the top nine DJI Osmo Action accessories you need to get those amazing pictures and videos.
You'll need a battery to power your camera.
While it already comes with one, it doesn't hurt to have a spare one charging so when your original one runs out of juice, you can pop another battery in without missing any beautiful shots.
2. Suction Cup Car Mount
If you go on a lot of drives, you'll want to get a good ole suction cup car mount.
The mount lets you swivel the camera in any angle you wish.
This will let you get all the beautiful shots you want without fear of losing the camera (or your arm in case you first thought of manually holding the camera out of the window to film some spectacular angles).
3. Adhesive Mount Kit
If your Osmo Action is going to live up to its name, you'll want to get an adhesive mount kit.
With a mount in place, you can take this bad boy anywhere with you.
4. Backpack Strap Holder
Want to go hands-free but don't want to risk damage to your precious camera? Then get a backpack strap holder!
This accessory allows you to clip your DJI Osmo Action to your backpack and quickly release it whenever you want.
You'll be able to film all your crazy adventures, even when you have your hands full.
5. Red Filter
If you dive without it, you won't be able to record those brilliant colorful shots you were aiming for.
The first color that dies underwater is red. Therefore almost all cameras struggle recording beautiful underwater footage.
The solution though is simple.
Attach a red filter to the front of the lens!
Almost like magic, this tiny filter revives washed-out looking underwater footage.
I won't give my filter away anymore (as I am a diver who loves to film his underwater adventures).
6. Waterproof Case
Let's continue talking about water! If you love to go to the beach and swim, the DJI Osmo Action will allow you to go down to 36 feet without a case.
If you want to go further, the waterproof case allows you to go down to 60 meters without compromising the quality of your pictures.
Downside: DJI still has not released their underwater housing yet. Awkward, but a matter of fact.
Other manufacturers have taken advantage of DJIs slow move and produced an underwater housing that allows you to reach depths of up to 45 meters, which is enough even for most professional divers.
7. ND Filter Set
The set comes with four ND filters, which will allow you to get those breathtaking footage.
You can play around with them and create long-exposure effects on your shots to get some truly unique photos. And almost all sceneries look better when being filmed with an ND filter (keyword motion blur).

8. Hand Grip
It can be cumbersome to hold onto a camera; you'll probably need both hands to stabilize it.
With a handgrip, it'll be easier to film what you're doing with only one hand.
Plus, this beautiful handgrip is a floating grip at the very same time.
