Can anyone tell me if there are any provisions for an external Microphone on the OSMO Action?
The manual refers to the fact that if the OSMO Action is put into an underwater housing it has a max depth of 60m.  Is anyone aware of an underwater housing for this OSMO Action?
Can I purchase additional batteries for the OSMO Action?

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. You can connect Osmo Action with a third-party microphone through the USB-C port. However, the accessory that would protect the Osmo Action cam underwater hasn't been released in our DJI online store. Regarding purchasing a spare of batteries, the Osmo Action cam has a removable battery, therefore, we could purchase multiple batteries in our store. Please check the link below for the available accessories that can be purchased in our store. Thank you for your support.

Thank you DJI Tony.  Looking forward to seeing an underwater housing that will bring this deeper then 11M as well as a Red and Megenta filter for underwater photography.

DJI Tony,

Are you saying that you can directly connect a third party microphone through the USB-C port?  If so, where is the list of compatible microphones?

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. As of the time being, we may need to confirm this query to our designated department if there will be a particular accessory that could possibly be compatible with third-party microphones in the future. We do appreciate your understanding.

Pretty much every Action review on YouTube says that none of the 3rd party USB-C microphones work with the Action, just like they didn’t work with the Osmo Pocket. To add insult to injury even the DJI mic adapter released for the Pocket at an eye-watering 35 dollars doesn’t work with the Action. So everybody is having to wait (again!) for DJI to launch their mic adapter.

Hopefully it will be sooner then later.  Otherwise I think DJI is going to lose a piece of the market with regards to the OSMO Action.  Instead of waiting people will look elsewhere.

Hopefully DJI or a 3rd party company will come through on an underwater housing before you trip.  I'm so interested in see your photos if they do.  Please share them here.

Well, who knows with third party manufacturers.  But you can purchase TEN of them and let us know:

60 M i think are beyond what you will see from any consumer waterproof housing, i think most are around 30 - 40 M for any brand camera.
Which are also fine i recon, i have never been deeper than 20 M when i used my diving gear, and now i only use the tank to refill my air gun, the rest are in long time storage,,,, probably till i am dead and gone.

Regarding red / magenta filters, well i have not seen anything of that, i assumed people just bump those colors in post production nowadays.

PS: offshore NJ ( New Jersey ) will soon see a nice little offshore wind mill park, build by my people ( i call Danes that when its the rare things i like ) should be biggest off shore park in the US when its done.

Wow!  Is this real?  It would be the first.  Has anyone on this forum purchased it and tried it out?  Oh wait I didn't look close enough.  The minimum order is 50 so that would be a pretty expensive underwater housing.

Oh, I thought we only needed to order TEN.  I might have read wrong or they've updated their sales number!!!

$500 for an underwater housing would be a little steep.  I guess I will have to wait on either DJI or ikelite.
