First of thank you DJI for allowing me to Beta Test the new OSMO Pro/Raw Wired Video Adapter! This is a huge plus for me because I've been plagued with having to have my Google Pixel in Airplane mode (with WiFi on) to be able to connect to the OSMO Pro, therefore I have not been able to broadcast live via Facebook Live or Youtube Live.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
The OSMO™ Pro/RAW Wired Video Adapter is able to transform video signal to USB signal. It is used to connect the Osmo Pro/RAW to OJI Crystal Sky Monitor and Android mobile devices without a Wi-Fi connection, making the captured footage more stable and smooth. It is ideal for solving problems that are caused by the limitations of Wi-Fi connection such as lagging footage, long latency and the inability to manually focus accurately. For Osmo Pro/RAW, the OJI GO™ app comes with an additional Peak Focus function that improves manual focus accuracy.
Osmo Pro/RAW Wired Video Adapter can be used with the Osmo X5 Adapter and Osmo PrO/RAW Z-Axis. It also comes with a DJI Focus communication port, which allows the mobile device and DJI Focus or DJI Focus Handwheel to connect simultaneously.


UNBOXING
The OSMO Pro/Raw Wired Video Adapter comes in the ever familiar DJI Accessory packaging. The adapter is a quality well made cable in keeping with all DJI accessories. In the package is the adapter itself and a small instructional manual.

FIRMWARE UPGRADE
In order to use the OSMO Pro/Raw Wired Video Adapter I first had to download and update the firmware of the OSMO Pro to version 1.4.0.70. Then it was time for the simple install.
To learn how to update the firmware on your OSMO Pro/Raw visit THIS DJI TUTORIAL VIDEO.

INSTALLATION
1.         Connect the communication port on the Osmo Pro/RAW Wired Video Adapter to the communication port on the X5 adapter.


2.         Connect the USB port on the Osmo Pro/RAW Wired Video Adapter to your mobile device using a proper cable (not included, choose the proper cable according to the mobile device's port).

3.         Connect the DJI Focus communication port on the Osmo Pro/RAW Wired Video Adapter to the DJI Focus Handwheel using the dedicated communication cable (not included). Once the installation is complete, turn on the Osmo Pro/ RAW to start use.  I do not currently use the Focus Handwheel so I skipped this step.


At first I found the extra cable and adapter a little distracting but I found if you rout the cable under between the device holder and the phone it gets it out of the way as shown here:

ADAPTER PERFORMANCE
The adapter performed even better than expected. The video feed was crystal clear and latency was almost non-existent! The added benefit for me and my Google Pixel not needing to connect with WiFi in Airplane Mode was a huge bonus!

FINAL THOUGHTS
If you need extremely low latency and a good crystal clear connection this adapter is for you! Find a way to route your cables to minimize the bulk and you will be amazed at the results and convenience. No waiting for WiFi to connect, just plug and go!

Looks like we should put some velcro on the adapter and some on the handle/holder  somewhere.

I'd love to see the CrystalSky mount for Osmo also.

Thanks for the reviews.  Is there no way to get a clean video signal out via this adapter (for external recording, switching, or sending to an external streaming box)?  It plugs into an android device for control and monitoring (in lieu of using wifi connection) but if I wanted to record the video signal separately without on-screen display info there's no way to do that?
