Re: Can we use a external microphone for hero 7 black in karma grip?

 

Hi @greendusk73157,

 

Sorry but it would be impossible to do that since we cannot use the ports because it's covered by the grip. 

You can rely on the improved mic though.

Well, you as in GoPro are selling the same bulky problematic external audio adapter for an external mic on both amazon and your site as for the new HERO 7..... Heres the link below

Re: Can we use a external microphone for hero 7 black in karma grip?

Hello  @joecity

 

The Bluetooth connectivity for the HERO7 camera only works with external devices such as a mobile device for GoPro App connectivity, and those remote controls (Remo, Smart Remote, Wi-Fi remote). A Bluetooth microphone is not supported by the camera functionalities. The HERO7 Black camera though has enhanced audio performance compared to the previous HERO models. You can read more about the improvements here.

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: Can we use a external microphone for hero 7 black in karma grip?

Hello @fireysurf01558

 

The Pro 3.5 mm Mic Adapter is used while being connected to the camera. Although the Karma Grip has a USB-C port, it is not designed to support the functionality of an external microphone, thus the mic adapter can be connected but will not work as intended. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: Can we use a external microphone for hero 7 black in karma grip?

I am a new gopro user and i got the hero7 black...

i cant imagine the sound quality being much worse in the previous verision cameras....  I 100% NEED an external microphone for my hero7  it sounds like everything is under water.....      Can i plug in a usb-c microphone directly into the hero7??? any suggestions would be great .  thanks
