Hi, djiuser_asuCQJyXPxxK. Thank you for reaching out. You cannot connect an external mic and charge it at the same time due to a limited USB Port and currently, we don't have any recommended adapter. Osmo Action 3 has a built-in Windproof Microphone, we suggest using it during the time that you have to use while charging. Thank you for your kind understanding and support.

Something like this can't be used?

Unfortunate if true.

not possible wih Osmo Action 3

A review that I read on this item at the B&H Photo web page says it does *not* work with the Action 3 camera.

Looking at the Action vs. Action 3, the USB connector is oriented 90 degrees different in the body of the camera.  That certainly can't help with affixing the adapter in the camera.

So, there was a design choice with the OA3 camera to not implement the  USB-C Audio Adapter Accessory Mode?

I have already tried the adapter. For me, this is a pure software limitation of DJI. I have tested a lot of adapters, some of them do not work, most of them behave in a way that loading is always preferred. This means that an external microphone via splitter works until I connect the charging cable to the splitter, then the OSMO Action 3 switches off the microphone and then switches to charging. When I remove the charging cable from the splitter again, it takes a few seconds and the external microphone is switched on again.

It would be more than nice if DJI corrected this on the software side and made it available for all products as standard. Preferably PD, data & video at the same time like almost every USB-C connection on.

I will guess it is hardware related with some kind of protection.

This is another real issue they ought to have improved in the Action 4 - but I won't hold my breath as most likely you will have to buy some special adapter at an inflated price.
If they wanted to help users any adapter should come with it - the real cost is probably about $2

Thanks for the validation for the rest of us that this is a non-starter.

Wager on whether or not the Action 4 has the same limitations to the regulars here?

I suppose we'll all find out in a couple of weeks.

This is terrible.
So we can record continuously only for the length of one battery??
Is it an action camera??...
This is requirement 5 in a list of action camera architecture requirements...
Sometimes I feel like the product manager thought these camera will be used only in a kid birthday party on the backyard...
Come on DJI. Don't become GoPro!!!
Be the one company that took the action video seriously.

FYI...a point-of-reference only.

The Belkin USB-C Audio + Charge Adapter I purchased from Big A didn't have microphone functionality on my OA3 (using TRS lav mic...) but it did on an OA4.

I have never been a fan of DJI locking their products. I own an Osmo Pocket, and it still doesn't have a proper adapter that can use an external mic and charge simultaneously. One reason why I have never bought a DJI product and preferred Insta360s. however, I stumbled upon this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFppNvyCI-A&t=572s where he confirms that the recently launched Osmo Action Mic adapter works with Action 3. Can someone from DJI please confirm so that people with a lower budget can still purchase the Action 3

Thanks for sharing. My use cases include charging and using a mic at the same time. Also, I'm unsure what you mean by OA3 doesn't need an adapter. A 3.5 mm mic always needs an adapter.
