External microphone[ New ]
I am using the external microphone adapter on my Hero6. If the adapter is plugged before i turn on the camera, most of the time the adapter is not detected correctly and audio source is auto selected as N/A (Not Available) which means there is no sound recorded. I am very angry about that....no sound on my videos means that they are almost worthless. There must be an issue with the USB driver which does not recognize the USB audio device at power-up.
Ther is other issues about camera freezing but it happens ''only'' about once a week. The only way to get out of this problem is to remove the battery (not so easy when i use my gimbal stabilizer).
So far, the Hero6 is absolutely not reliable compared to my old Hero3+. I hope that a firmware upgrade will resolve all these majors issues.
