Check out the rode wireless mic go. I got that too but not tested it. Pricey but really tiny
So, as it turns out... you can't use an external mic with the Osmo Action. I got the one linked today, I've tried it with both TRRS and TRS and it doesn't use the external mic
Hope that is true.
Yeah, would be good. It's a shame you can't use just any adaptor though
mind you i have not tried it yet but How has Kai managed to get it to work on his video?
This annoys me. You spend over £300 to buy a camera, then you have to spend around another £50 to use it properly.
You should be able to just connect a mic and start filming. GoPro is the same
That's down to usb c no? I usb c doesn't just "work" I if that makes sense. Anyways let me try my end
Yeah makes sense, but still annoying
I've had the GoPro adapter on order now for over a month. These things are like gold dust.
Did he get it to work though? It sounded very much like onboard audio to me.
Used the Action for a bit of 3 bracket hdr
Just tried it as well and it diddnt work. I googled it and saw a video about it not working even with the Osmo pocket adapter one..
Poor really. Gunna try it on my old yi 4k action cam
Poor is very kind. It is a bloody outrage and simple gouging. So frustrating when businesses do so many things right and really innovate and offer choice, and then just screw it up so badly on things like this. It would be marginally, just marginally, more forgivable if they had any in stock. But they don't.
Finally got a chance to use mine in a first test today. I just spliced a few clips together so nothing fancy - I was mainly interested in seeing how the stabilisation worked when motorcycling and how the camera coped with the harsh contrast of shadows on a sunny day.
No problem with the former - the stabilisation generally worked very well. I'm less sure on the actual camera image quality itself, although this is raw and ungraded. The GoPro 7 feels like better quality straight out of the camera but I've yet to have a play around with proper editing.
Oh, and if not already obvious, it desperately needs that microphone adaptor. Largely useless for most things I want to do without it.
Don't forget this is DJI. Over the next few firmware updates they will fine tune the Action and improve it, like the other stuff they have released.
Mic adapter here, in German though.
What a ludicrous design - completely impractical. Better than the GoPro brick, but still...
Where did you order from?
I don't have one, i don't even have the camera, YET!.
I misread u meaning you ordered one and its in Germany at the moment
I wish these mic adapters were right angled so it was more difficult to break. I understand most people will have a housing of some type, but sticking straight out is asking for trouble.
