How to Switch Screens Osmo Action

The Osmo Action is DJI's first action camera, and it features two screens that you can use to frame your subject on camera. It is a great small & durable camera that is the first action camera to feature such high quality front AND rear screens on an action camera. My original GoPro Hero 4 Black didnt have a rear screen - and I didn't think I needed one.. well now that the newer GoPros and Osmo Action have giant rear screens on the back, switching between screens has never been easier.

The Good News

The added bonus that the Osmo Action has is the front screen!

But a lot of people get tripped up on how to switch between the front and rear screens on the Osmo Action. Or how to use the front and rear Osmo Action screen at the same time.

The Bad News

There is some bad news with the Osmo Action front and rear screens, namely that they can't be used at the same time. I understand that the battery life would be significantly drained, but it would be nice to have the option in certain situations. Maybe this is a CPU processing problem?

You also can't switch between screens while filming. This is frustrating if you're going from vlogging to behind the camera filming frequently, but as long as youre in front of the camera while it's facing forward - you'll probably be in frame thanks to the wide angle lens of the Osmo Action.
