Hi @steveely

 

HERO7 Silver/ White do not have compatibility with external microphones. 

If you wish to use an external mic, it should work with a HERO7 Black.

Hi @ictiandro

 

What do you mean by "gets hit"?

Can you give us additional information on the issue?

What SD card are you using? Is the camera up to date?

 

 

Thanks!
