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?

 and the mic works unless you got a defect?

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.

Cool thanks - I'll try it when I get home. However, it's ironic that the last message I saw from GoPro it said the *wouldn't* be fixing it...
