We usually expect prices like this during big sales like Prime Day and Black Friday, but Amazon Australia never ceases to surprise us with some excellent discounts.
And while GoPro might be the buzzword when it comes being the best action camera money can buy, don't dismiss DJI from that equation just yet. The DJI Osmo Action has been in, well, action for a while now, and its still a heck of a little camera, particularly for vloggers.
It admittedly can't rival the GoPro Hero 9 in features, like the HyperSmooth electronic image stabilisation (EIS) system, DJI has done an excellent job with its proprietary EIS technology called RockSteady.
When it comes to video resolutions, the Osmo Action can record in 4K at up to 30fps in 4:3 aspect ratio but if you want to go up to 60fps, you're limited to a 16:9 aspect ratio. Either way, picture quality does not disappoint and it should come as no surprise that we rank it at No.3 in our list of best action cameras currently available.
And it makes for an even better GoPro alternative when you can snag the camera at a whopping 40% discount, bringing the price down to just AU$300.35 from a rather steep AU$499 RRP.

It took GoPro a long time to offer an action camera with a front-facing screen, while DJI did that a while back with the Osmo Action. Until the Hero 9 came along, the DJI alternative was one of the few action cameras to cater to the selfie generation. But why spend top dollar on a GoPro when the Osmo Action can be yours for just AU$300? That's a massive 40% off the RRP!
