Which SD card for the DJI Osmo Action?

A microSD memory card can be used in the DJI Osmo Action to save photos as JPEG and DNG and videos as MOV and MP4. The remaining capacity (recording time) is displayed on the camera's screen so that the microSD card can be replaced in good time. To prevent this from happening too often, you should choose a memory with a lot of capacity; microSDXC models with up to 256 GB are supported in the camera. 

Both DJI and I have only one really sensible recommendation in terms of manufacturer or brand: SanDisk. Why I personally recommend SanDisk products again and again, that's what I lead in this post in detail. Here are the microSDHC and microSDXC memory cards that you can safely use in the DJI Osmo Action Camera:

  • SanDisk Extreme 32 GB U3, V30 micro-SDHC - Available here
  • SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB U3, V30 A2 micro-SDXC - Order here
  • SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB U3, V30 A2 micro-SDXC - Buy here
  • SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB U3, V30 A2 micro-SDXC - View here

FAT32, exFAT and memory sizes - what is it?

As noted in the above-linked article on the new sports camera from DJI, in addition to the storage capacities of the individual cards, you should also pay attention to their file format. This is actually already predefined when you buy it, so that the microSD should work directly. If it does not do this, however, you can format it on Mac and PC in order to make it compatible yourself in case of doubt. The following guideline applies:

  • File format FAT32 - SD cards with 8GB, 16GB up to 32GB
  • ExFAT file format - SD cards from 64GB, with 128GB, 256GB and more

You can read what exFAT is all about .. If you get a message about supposed write protection when formatting the memory card, you can help this guide further. You can format (if actually necessary) on the Apple Mac in the "Hard Disk Utility".
