◆ Check the angle of view
With Osmo Action 4, the angle of view can be selected from three levels: ``standard (distortion correction)'', ``wide angle'', and ``ultra wide angle'', so I tried shooting in the same direction from the same place while switching the angle of view. First of all, below is a part of the movie taken with 'standard (distortion correction)'.

It is like this when it is 'wide angle'. Compared to 'Standard (Distortion Correction)', you can shoot a wider range, but the distortion increases as you move away from the center.

It is like this when it is 'super wide angle' with the widest angle of view. Distortion became noticeable at the same time as the shooting range expanded.

Next, I tried shooting the scenery with 'standard (distortion correction)'. The image quality setting is 4K/60fps.

◆ Check the blur correction performance
Osmo Action 4's blur correction function has 4 modes, 'off', 'RockSteady', 'RockSteady+' and 'HorizonBalancing', and 'HorizonBalancing' also corrects vertical tilt in addition to blur correction. The following movie was taken while switching the blur correction mode of `` going up and down the stairs with a dash '', and when you shoot a movie, you can understand the correction performance of each mode. The angle of view is 'standard (distortion correction)' and the image quality setting is 4K / 60fps.

Below is a part of the movie shot in 'RockSteady +' mode. Even though I shot it under extremely blurry conditions, such as 'running down the stairs', I was able to shoot with a quality that can be used as a still image. Osmo Action 4 has enough stabilization performance to be used even during intense activities.

In the article below, Osmo Action 4 performs 'night photography', 'underwater photography' and 'close-up photography' to verify its qualities as a Vlog camera that can be used in any situation.
