DJI has launched a new accessory for its flagship Action 2 camera: a magnetic protective case that helps to save the camera unit from impacts, scratches, and abrasions.
If you’ve already bought and activated a DJI Action 2, you can claim a free protective case for your camera from your retailer. And if you’re planning to buy the Action 2, you can either hold off the purchase until April 1 to get a free magnetic protective case directly in the box. Or you can save $50 on the DJI Action 2 Power Combo and $80 on the Dual-Screen Combo right now and get a coupon from DJI to claim the free accessory at a later date.
DJI Action 2 magnetic protective case
The new magnetic protective case accessory for Action 2 camera is compatible with both the Power Module and Front Touchscreen Module of the Dual-Screen Combo. And it has multiple uses.
The Action 2 case is made from heat-resistant polymer. So, in addition to protecting the camera from impact, it makes the camera unit less restricted by temperature, allowing extended recording times under normal conditions. Extended by how much, you ask?
The following chart summarizes the maximum recording duration (when Auto-Stop Rec Temp is set to High) under different video specifications and stabilization modes when the CAMERA UNIT is mounted with the magnetic protective case. DJI measured the data in a windless indoor environment (25 °C).
