About the Osmo Action 3 Color Temperature Sensor
The color temperature sensor is located at the letter “O” on the Action 3 nameplate. Do not cover the letter “O” when holding the camera. With the help of the color temperature sensor, Action 3 can obtain better color temperature performance in complex lighting scenarios. For example, when diving, it can correct the color temperature underwater, so the color temperature will not change when the camera angle changes. In addition, the sensor allows the camera to more accurately detect and reduce the stroboscopic effect in the shooting environment.

There are altogether 3 microphones on Action 3, with 2 at the nameplate and 1 on the right side of the camera bottom panel (with the front touchscreen facing toward the operator).
