Finally, the DJI Osmo Pocket 3.5mm adapter is available

Finally, DJI made the Osmo Pocket 3.5mm adapter is available for higher-quality sound recording on the DJI Osmo Pocket. Especially when you’re shooting outside. Most if not all DJI Osmo Pocket owners have been waiting for this accessory to be released by DJI. And it is unclear why it has taken the Chinese drone maker so long to release this seemingly simple product. However, it is here now. At $39 it is not inexpensive, but for anybody who plans to use the Osmo Pocket outside, it is a must.

Here are two good videos showing you why you need to use the DJI Osmo Pocket 5.3mm adapter and a quick test of a number of microphones you can use. The Rode Videomicro is a great microphone but as you can see it is still too big and complicated to use with the Osmo Pocket. Personally, I really like the Saramonic SR-XM1 3.5mm TRS Omnidirectional Microphone ($24.95) as it is small and fits the Osmo pocket much better.
