Re: Can I use an external mic with the GoPro Max?

Same here kleake, I use my GoPros in the plane and would like to simplify with a single 360 camera, but GoPro hasn't added this option yet. And if having an port on the side is a problem, why not have a port on the bottom?

I have the same question before buying expensive audio adapter cable

At this point a bluetooth mic would be the only way, and I'm not sure if anyone has tested that yet.

Hi @kleake

 

Bluetooth mic doesn't work.

Well scratch that idea....  Per the above reply from GoPro, we have to use some other method (of audio capture such as a secondary camera if we need better audio in noisy environments.  This should be fixable with an update from GoPro, but who knows if that will actually happen.

Re: Can I use an external mic with the GoPro Max?

Thanks for the above questions and comments folks.

I've been out on the bike several times now with the Max. I use the sound from the Max as a background (makes my Ducati sound great!), but commentary from my helmet camera, a Drift Ghost S. It adds to the workflow effort but works reasonably well. Check out my Max/Motorbike review here https://youtu.be/vilYbCxjkdE

Salut,

De ce que je vois sur les forums il ne semble pas possible d'utiliser un micro externe... décidément cette Max est à la fois géniale et merdique (toujours pas de données GPS utilisables....)

Greetings from another Ducati owner! Congratulations on this well-made video with attention to detail.

One question: are the overlay data (speed, route, etc.) those generated directly by the GoPro MAX or are they extracted from other sources?
