Unless you have been living under a stone since the DJI Osmo started arriving in normal Joe’s hands, you might have heard that the Osmo is not all that great at recording sound, in fact you might say it’s sh!t. The Microphone picks up the noise from the camera’s fan as well as the sound of the gimbal motors making most recorded audio useless.
Since its very very unlikely DJI can do much to fix the sound issue ( in v1 of the Osmo anyway ), they have announced after, and I quote, “testing hundreds of different microphones from lots of different manufacturers”, a shortlist of six recommended microphones. These microphones would need to be attached to the Universal Mount that is starting, very slowly, to ship into the hands of users and shelves of dealers. The microphone would attach to the Osmo’s 3.5mm jack on the front.
