What's the verdict on this Vs the hero 7 black? Or is it minimal differences?

This is an upgraded version due to a 2nd screen and better cooling system

They need to fix the lag on the screen and a few other issue and then hands down it’s better than the go pro

Some good comparison videos on this link.

Image on the OSMO seems slightly more zoomed in, and slightly more over exposed. Watching other reviews, battery is meant to be much better which is a big plus. They both have some pros and cons which you'll have to decide yourself if they're a deal breaker.

How does this compare with the DJ Osmo Pocket? Is it similar but the latter has a built-in gimbal or am I missing the point?

Different devices. Osmo pocket is a handheld gimbal-stabilised camera. Osmo Action is an action camera that usually attaches to helmets, handlebars, underwater, etc.
Also to anybody being sold on this with the HDR video mode, don't. It's not real HDR, it's post-processed HDR which, if you have it turned on, stops you using other features like RockSteady. I just keep it off.

Watch this, a really good comparison between the 2. Personally for me it has to be the action:

The pocket is like the action, minus the waterproof and damageproof.

Thanks – you've saved me from buying the wrong camera.

Can I be cheeky and ask another question? I mainly want this for carrying out long video interviews for my work but it will double up for family use. In you opinion s this as good as anything for this use?

For any purpose where you want clear sound you MAY need to buy a microphone attachment as the voice can be a bit distant (covers it in the video). But you'd need to test it as may be fine as it is dependant on the room acoustics.

If you want it for capturing family memories, you could get a hand grip for carrying around. Has a wrist strap to stop you dropping it.

I'm going to get myself a hand grip, and chest mount... I fancy jumping off some boats in to the sea
Great, thank you
Think it’s great to have a direct mainstream competitor for GoPro, will be interesting to see how this model is updated down the line. Gopro will no longer be the default choice for many people!

Slow clap for Tenohfive

I'm happy with a small discount on a flagship product that is months old
Edited by: "Iamthemills" 22nd Jul
Just a heads up with this camera the front and rear screen are about 3 seconds behind! And go to roughly 5 seconds behind when recording! Also the crop is a lot tighter on this than the GoPro! Still has great potential

I’ve just recorded my first ever vlog in Prague on a GoPro hero 7 just to see what it would be like! I can link if anyone is interested in seeing it? First ever vlog and first ever edit

You might be, but I wouldn't call it much of a deal. If you were looking to buy one anyway, happy days, but if you come on here to be tempted into getting something then that amount of discount just isn't going to cut it.

Horses for courses maybe. I'm only looking at this because I want to see the line between 'want,' and, 'need,' get blurry enough for me to end up with new toys.

Nah I've been looking for one.

I waited for amazon prime day to see if it was going to be on offer but didnt come up so this will do. Need it to accompany the Mavic

Might be worth a look at somewhere like Wiggle, sometimes you can get decent discounts on sports tech with their new customer codes (or just spamming old codes.) I managed about £100 off a top end Garmin watch within a month or two of release. 18 months later I still wasn't seeing it down to the price I paid
How about this?

Same price at Currys PC World with 10% Topcashback on a special offer at the moment.
Looks like a fantastic camera. Shopping around after the ActiveOn XG cheapy is a huge disappointment.

FWIW, a reviewer on Amazon said you have to install the app on your smart phone to register it before it can be used.
This meant that he couldn't use his new camera, seeing as he still had an old iPhone 5 in use.

I am loving mine...i gave the 'Rock Steady' image stabilisation a good test by attaching it to the perspex windscreen of my kit car that vibratres alot and driving over very rough local roads....it worked brilliantly ...far far better than you would think of a digital software method of stabilisation...my git 2 has it but is woefully worse....check out the vid I uploaded here in 4K 60fps :

Anyone know the best microphone and tripod for these things?

It hasn't come yet and I've already bought two batteries and I'm already making plans to spend more money!
