    Here's my take. My concern with both those mics would be isolation. Both designs might be susceptible to vibrations through the handle, i.e. any noise possibly generated by the gimbal or by your hand operating the controls.

    If this is the case, then the audio may only be good for reference. I'm sure the quality will be fine but I'd probably choose the first one listed. It comes with a wind sock, helpful for shooting outdoors. The other looks more rigid and may be more susceptible to vibration. I'd buy the cheaper one (with the wind sock) to see how it peforms.

    i think the sennheiser mke 400 would be a good chioce for the extra $. but im not sure its worth it if the audio has weird gain issues/ auto levels. no way to monitor the audio either unless you can plug your headphones into the phone.

    I purchased the accessory mount for the OSMO...Sennheiser G3 wireless with Tram TR50 is gonna be perfect on a system that is loud...and the OSMO audio input is not powered so the crapped $10 mics may not work.

    This might not be the best solution but what if one recorded the audio from their device?

    No phantom power on the stick (Osmo) but it is only a toy so I would not expect 48v Phantom on board. :p
    If you are serious about audio when using the stick I would suggest an external recorder and hand clap sync at start of scene.

    Hi guys, I found this shoe mount for the Osmo that clips to the standard phone mount:

    DJI OSMO Cold Shoe Mount - ADJUSTABLE - Aerial Drone Accessories

    This is great because i was struggling to figure out how to mount my phone AND a mic at the same time. Just need to find a suitable mic now. The Rode Video Mic Pro looks a tad on the large side for me so I was wondering what other people are using?

    I was looking at the Videomicro but I thought the Osmo input doesn't supply power to the mic? Well if it works I will grab one of those, just the size I was looking for. Thanks

    Does it work with the 3.5mm cable supplied in the box or do you need an adapter?

    I was reading this thread and thought I would share what came in the mail yesterday. The cold shoe mount is a 3d printed mount that came from Multicopter Warehouse. The microphone is a Rode Video Micro. I did some quick video to test the sound since this an unpowered mic. It seems a huge improvement over the internal mic.

    I ordered the Rode Videomicro, thanks for the tip on the powered mic port. That saved me a fair few $$

    Here's another mount solution using a cheap phone holder
