DJI returned to the mini action camera market at the end of 2021 with the Action 2 by bringing a concept of modules to add, to differentiate itself from the giant GoPro. If it was a little expensive at the time, it now goes under 250 euros with the summer sales.
Differentiating from GoPro and positioning yourself as a good alternative is very complicated. A ” exploit that DJI tried to achieve with its Action 2 released last October. For those who were reluctant about its price, they will be convinced by this offer at less than 250 euros at Boulanger, the battery module included.
What is the DJI Action 2?
- 4K video at 120 frames per second
- 32 GB of expandable internal memory

A modular action camera
The originality of this mini camera is above all its modular operation. Depending on the pack you buy, you are going to have different accessories. We are not talking here about the different mountings (pole, handlebars, etc.) of the GoPro type, but about real modules. DJI offers two: a screen and a battery. The first module is a screen that is fixed under the camera, which allows video feedback to be displayed and at the same time increases the autonomy of the camera. For those who would not necessarily have the means or the usefulness, a second module exists. This is a battery that is fixed under the camera as well and which extends the autonomy of the Action 2.
These modules are fixed in the same place as the accessories. DJI opts here for a system of magnets coupled with side notches that lock. The camera module will remain located at the top, regardless of the situation. The real plus is that you can fix everything to fasteners since below the modules, there is the same fixing system. Note that these modules are not waterproof. To use them underwater, you will need a box that can be submerged up to 50 meters.
4K at 120 fps
This DJI Action 2 is equipped with a 1/1.7″ CMOS sensor of 12 Mpx. It offers very good video quality and allows you to film in 4K at 120 frames per second. A frequency that can go up to 240 if you reduce the quality to 1080p (which is still very good). The colors are fairly well transcribed and are not saturated, unlike what we can see with the competition. As for the contrasts, they are not always well managed, depending on the conditions.
In what we look at when deciding to buy an action camera is the field of view. On the Action 2, the latter is 155°, which is wider than GoPro’s SuperView mode. Be careful though, if you want a narrower field, this DJI camera won’t be the best. On the audio side, however, the DJI Action 2 is doing very well, especially on the management of wind noise. In addition, when you add one of the two modules, you go from one microphone to four. As for software stabilization, here we have RockSteady 2.0, available in 4K at 60 frames per second. Although not impressive, it is still effective. We are also entitled to HorizonSteady, which offers 360-degree horizon maintenance so that the image remains straight when the camera moves.
