    In terms of audio very slight better in gopro from osmo

  3. Regijus Simkevicius on December 2, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    both comparing with commercial shots they are not even close or you rendering incorrectly. Osmo colour profile is better. When GP as always has that overcontrasted image. in darker areas or evenings it becomes pitch black.

  4. crown951 on December 2, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    What’s crazy is that this is DJI’s first action camera that came out almost a whole year and a half ago and is still able to hold its own…the go pro is nasty but to me that only means the pano action 2 is gonna be suuuuper clean when it comes out..I think I’m just gonna have to wait till then to buy my first action camera

  5. Jon Poklop on December 2, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    $199 vs $499. The Hero 9 Black better be way better.

  6. Jeffrey Dela Cruz on December 2, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Wow that horizon stabilization is like having a built in gimbal in the camera.

  7. Traveling with Dave & Lisa on December 2, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    I’m getting a 9 black for my cruise vlog channel. Primarily to use for underwater shots.

  8. Abubakar Sadiq on December 2, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    7:30 If you know something about colours you will instantly know that GoPro 9 is rubbish comparing Osmo Action… one of the reasons I would pick Osmo action over any GoPro is how the skin tone and colour in general look so pleasing and natural.
    Damn that 7:30 looks really really really bad.

  9. Manish Rajput on December 2, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Biased towards GoPro! Sad.

  10. Tropical Dany on December 2, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    I’d wait for Dji Osmo Action 2 before making a decision 🙂

  11. cobberbrimo on December 2, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    The Osmo footage looks really washed out, way more than other videos, is that deliberate?

  12. Tony wen on December 2, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Thanks for your video, I am going to get a dji osmo.

  13. kang ja-de on December 2, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Hello, can anyone suggest what is the best for vlogging between the two? Plan to buy 😁

  14. Joshua Engering on December 2, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Loved the review, but you didn’t show us a review if it held up in the cold temperatures!

  15. Uncle bik on December 2, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    i bought my osmo for 211$! osmo still is a good buy, price speaks volumes. the horizon levelling of h9 is amazing though

  16. DailyBimmers on December 2, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    Maybe it’s finally time to upgrade from my hero 3+ black from 2013 lol

  17. SAVAGE & I on December 2, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    I’ll take the $200 Dji Osmo Action vs. the $400 GoPro Hero 9 Black. 🙂

  18. Quantum Ordinance on December 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    My man I like your tattoo 🙂 (I am Greek)

  19. Sid G on December 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    You didn’t mention how the battery of Osmo Action fared in the cold compared to Hero 7 and if you checked whether the Hero 9 does any better. Thanks!

  20. Katlego Tladi on December 2, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Hey! Would you mind dropping a track list of the songs in this video? Great work btw!

  21. Kane Able on December 2, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    How is the Go Pro Hero 9 in the ice temps

  22. elektriklisupurge on December 2, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    When gopro relased hero 126 black, we still compare with osmo action😂

  23. Pervy Sage on December 2, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    The hero 9 is definitely better than the Osmo in any aspect of the game but i dont think those improvements are worth paying extra 300$. Osmo all day

  24. Drost Video on December 2, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    The image of Hero 9 looks much better, what size are the files for editing and do you need the GoPro app? I have a hero 4 and love small size but the video quality is low compared to my canon M50. Trying to decide between getting the new iPhone 12 Pro (I still have 6S) and the Hero 9.

  25. imagista theimagista on December 2, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Horizontal leveling is the game changer.

  26. JBJ Honez on December 2, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    From what I’ve seen with a lot of comparisons of them on youtube, is that the "field of view" isn’t really that much different. That’s just me watching a lot of reviews comparing them both

  27. Bluebie Grace on December 2, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    I like the hyper smooth quality and the front camera, and the special price right now.
    I already have a GoPro 8. I still might get the 8 though.

  28. Kiem The Australia on December 2, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    lol did they pay you a lot to promote the gopro. i don’t think its as good as you say it is

  30. Mushtiar Engineer on December 2, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Wow

  31. 23bogarka on December 2, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Gopro.. Social media colours😏

  32. Sam Heavendoor on December 2, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Still thinking before regret to buy gopro 9 or other one 🤔

  33. Andrew Nguyen on December 2, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    You don’t actually save money. It’s either $450 out the door or $350 + $100 subscription. And the protection plan isn’t even good. It’s pro rated. Whatever the market value is that’s what you get. You cannot upgrade to a Go Pro Hero 10 if you destroy the Hero 9.

    Anyways, a long term review is more important to me. I already watched one review where they showed the Go Pro freezing up. An issue that has plague the Go Pro since Hero 6. I never had any problems with Hero 5 and 4.

    I don’t think they solved any of the Previous issues, they just tacked on new features. Anyways we’ll need a true review, not a hunny moon review.

  34. NorwegianOne on December 2, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    GoPro Hero 9 is 25.600 times better than that DJI Osmo copycat from China

  35. Felix Garcia on December 2, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Gopro just catch up after two years imagine the next osmo action everyone is thrashing the osmo now, totally unfair comparison

  36. Jeff Melson Travels on December 2, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    This was the exact video I was looking for! Appreciate you taking the time to share the comparison! I am in the market for an action camera and this video has convinced me to just go with the Go Pro 9! You can’t beat that stabilization and also I like how both screens operate at the same time and were bright enough to see.

  37. OFW Nurse Leonalyn on December 2, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Great review….

  38. Caulfield Fifty-Five on December 2, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Bananas! Mind Blowing!….exactly!!! Stabalization/Horizon levelling/HyperSmooth 3.0 is a big reason why I bought the GoPro Hero 9 over the Osmo. Great review as always. What camera do you use in your studio?

  39. gary rendano on December 2, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    you went into such depth in the beginning on how all the gopro before the Hero 9 didnt perform in the cold.. then you never even said if the Hero 9 did any better or not.. thumb down

  40. ELDORBEK UZ on December 2, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    hi, which country produces orginal go pro 9 black?

  41. Pick Nick Hopping on December 2, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    GoPro 9 is the clear Winner 🏆

  42. PauL TerL on December 2, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    There are not some wide angle after market lens conversiin to be screwed on the ACTION DJI??

  43. Walking Taiwan on December 2, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    I use the osmo action for my walking videos in Taiwan. I am happy with it in bright daylight, but I’m really bummed about it in low light situations. Even walking in a park at daytime (on a cloudy day) completely messes up the EIS, even RockSteady can’t fix that.

  44. Twonìu on December 2, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    go pro 9is way better , DJI levels with the gopro 7

  45. Yoyoyo on December 2, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    haha just saw your tattoo! whats your relation with greece?

  46. THAIGERs on December 2, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    This is like comparing apple and oranges, the Osmo is $249 and Hero 9 is $449.99 big difference in price. Did you know with the Osmo you change the lens filter?

  47. Roozbeh Borjian on December 2, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Great review 👍
    How is the price comparison of accessories?

  48. 200kmH emotions on December 2, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Can i Put the 9 on a drone

  49. Allan Delos Reyes on December 2, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    The horizon is a buy for me.

  50. 200kmH emotions on December 2, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    it looks like you used a gimbal lol
