OverviewDJI just launched DJI Action 2, the highly anticipated successor to Osmo Action. This all-new magnetically versatile action camera is available now and can be purchased as part of two different combos. We got our hands on the DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo to give you a taste of what it’s like to unbox and to see what’s inside.
The Unboxing Experience
Inside the box you’ll find:
1x Magnetic Adapter Mount
1x Magnetic Ball-Joint Adapter Mount
1x Camera Unit
1x Front Touchscreen Module
1x Magnetic Lanyard

First Impressions of the Key Modules
Right out of the box, the camera unit and the front touchscreen module are the first two things that catch your attention. Both are cuboid-shaped, made of sleek coin-grey metal, and have a bezel-less OLED screen on one of the sides. The identical-sized modules are roughly as big as a watch face and weigh about as much as a golf ball.
A Closer Look at the Modules
On the bottom of the camera unit and top of the front touchscreen module, we can see the connection pins. When connected, they allow for the two modules to communicate with each other.
