Can the Hero do Audio input?

I gut a new Hero (same size and look as the Hero 5 black and Hero 6 black).  When comparing them (https://gopro.com/compare) it indicates only the 5 and 6 can do audio out Pro 3.5mm Mic Adaptor.  I want to use it for flying and the similar audio cables (http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/gopro-hero5-audio-adapter-cable.html).  Does the Hero have audio in capabilities at all?

On a side note, searchign for "Hero" and gettign resutls back that aren't for "Hero 4" or "hero 5" or "hero 6" is nearly impossible.  I would suggest names be unique, not substrings of other names. :-)

Hello @niceflame23701

 

The HERO (2018) does not support usage of external microphone at this time. The camera though has a bult-in 3-microphone system. Thank you for the feedback. I will pass it on to the team. As a tip, to differentiate the new HERO with the old one, we identify it as HERO (2018). 

 

Best regards, 

Marius
