So, tech giant DJI might be going back to the basics with the next iteration of its action camera. Leaks suggest that DJI Action 3 will be released in September with an appearance identical to the original Osmo Action. In the meantime, DJI has lowered the price on all the special Action 2 bundles, including the Power Biking Combo, Dual-Screen Diving Combo, and the FPV Combo.
Leaker @DealsDrone says that DJI’s rugged action camera lineup could see a refresh as soon as mid-September. According to the leaker, DJI Action 3 camera would ditch the tiny, cube-like modular design adopted by Action 2 and go back to the classic action camera design.
We will learn more as more leaks surface, but for now, DJI is trying to pump up the sales of the magnetic Action 2 by offering attractive deals on special adventure activity bundles.
The Power Biking Combo, for example, is available at a 25% discount. Perfect for biking adventures, this bundle contains the DJI Action 2 Power Combo that can capture video in crystal-clear 4K plus a magnetic headband, a mounting kit, and a 128GB memory card.
