Can I use a USB Microphone by adapting to a USB-C that can plug into the GPH5 USB?

I have a Blue USB microphone that I'd like to use as an external microphone to my GPH5.  I know there is a 3.5mm microphone adapter available, but can I use a regular USB mic?

Hello @rapidflame51550

 

It would be nice to be able to use the USB mic directly. At this time though, the GoPro camera only works with the adapter. You can check it out here: https://shop.gopro.com/International/accessories-2/pro-3.5mm-mic-adapter/AAMIC-001.html

You might also want to keep this link on external microphone information for future reference. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
