After testing for a couple of weeks now, I have retired my Go Pro Hero 7 and am very happy with the Osmo Action. Full review is also coming soon, but I feel that DJI understand Watersports better than GoPro does now. The Hydrophobic coating on the Lens Cover and Screens, better stabilisation when in a linemount and almost no lens distortion are just some of the things that DJI have done way better and make the user experience as a kiter much better. There are some small things I would like, but those can be added or changed in Firmware. Best part is, the Osmo action does not crash.

Is there a water proof remote for the Dji cameras?

Osmo can't use reelsteady go, it's the single best way to stabilize your cam footage, if you care about that gopro 7 is the only option. check out reelsteady.

I think the fogging case was with older models.

6 and 7 don't need an extra housing, right?

I don't on my 6.

Wha-aaaaaat?!

I stopped paying attention because I assumed they still wanted a case. What IPX rating? Google google...
Kamikize, what egg did you lie under?
They kept using cases in the models after the 2 I have... so I just stopped paying attention.

Not yet. Just a matter of time before DJI makes one, or third party manufactures make one. Personally I am hoping for gesture control like on the Mavic Air.

I’d say the camera electronic stabilization keeps getting better. And most of the high end editors have features for stabilizing video. Reelsteady can be purchased as an add on for premiere.
