The DJI Osmo Pocket is a very popular tiny camera and gimbal setup. It’s portability, 4K slow motion and smart features make it an ideal choice for vloggers, and traveling. Built in to the device are internal two microphones but with no audio input connector, this limits the ability to record high quality audio recording with an external microphone.

The DJI Osmo Pocket 3.5mm Audio Adapter is now available to purchase, which converts the USB-C connection on the bottom of the device into a 3.5mm mini-jack input. Small on camera microphones such as the Rode VideoMicro or Sennheiser MKE400 can now be used with the device; an ideal solution for portable video setups.
The downside to the adapter is it’s protrusion from the bottom of the Osmo Pocket. It sticks right out the bottom, which is almost asking for it to be knocked or snapped. A right angle adapter may have been more applicable for the device, which may have less chance of breaking.
Some DJI Osmo Pocket owners may argue that the price for the adapter is a little too much, but it is a small price to pay for much higher quality audio recording with external microphones.
