Re: External Mic Not Recording Audio with HERO5 Black when using Quick Capture

Has there been a powered SMALL mic that has been tested to work with the 5 and 6? 

 

The rode VideeoMicro i purchased does not work, and I have yet to see a solution?

Re: External Mic Not Recording Audio with HERO5 Black when using Quick Capture

I suggest trying to   how to steps in every angle you can imagine

 and the mic works unless you got a defect?

 

maybe show us what you're doing.

Re: External Mic Not Recording Audio with HERO5 Black when using Quick Capture

Hi all, just to let you all know, ive been talking to the gopro tech support regarding the quick record issues. The quick record will only work with a powered mic. Especially for motovloggers we need to power up the camera first then start recording. The gopro guys mlgave me a link to check out.
