DIY Interview Adapter for the DJI MIC

One advantage of the Rode Wireless Go (II) or the newly released Rode Wireless Pro Systems over the DJI MIC is the ability to adapt the microphone into a handheld microphone for interview situations using the Interview Go adapter.

While there are third-party universal interview adapters like the Smallrig 3182, I wanted to take the challenge of designing my own 3D-printable handheld adapter for the DJI MIC.

Finding a suitable Foam Windshield

Finding a suitable windshield required more time to research than I anticipated. Most of the time, online shops list only compatible microphones but not the exact dimensions. Ultimately, I ordered a Rycote 35/50 Reporter Mic Foam for about 14€, which seems to be a great fit.

Designing the Adapter

For attaching the DJI MIC to the adapter, I decided to rely on the clamping force of the integrated clip. To get the dimensions right, I started designing and 3D-printing the part the MIC clamps onto in dozens of variations until I achieved a fit I was happy with.

The finished Adapter

The print in black PLA took about 2 hours on my Prusa MINI using the 0.15mm quality preset. Afterward, I added a 1/4” threaded insert to the bottom using a soldering iron. Thus, the adapter can be attached to a wide range of photo gear, like the grip of a selfie stick. The DJI MIC clips easily into the adapter and stays in there firmly.
