Re: GoPro Hero 5 external microphone?

I suppose that, soon, there will be some USB-C microphone on Amazon. They will be also powered with USB-C.

So the "brick" adapter will not be so useful, I suppose that the price is now so high just to catch the moment.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 external microphone?

Hi All,

 

I'm new to GoPro and bought a 5 black.  I then managed to get one of the "Brick" gopro mic adapters when they had stock.  I'm not even positive it ever worked, but it doesn't work now (like a week later)...  Even with the adapter the GoPro only records with its internal microphones.  I have tried the line out from my Zoom, a passive Lav and an active Lav.  I have tried all the audio settings from passive, to active to line in.  Wow $50 for an adapter and it doesn't even work. The camera does sense the adapter when plugged in, but it won't turn off the internal mics.

 

Be careful if you are testing to make sure it isn't recording from the internals.

 

Also, there is huge interference noise in the audio with or without the WiFi on and my phone off.

 

Wow, I am not impressed with an expensive camera with such marginal performance and expensive adapters that don't work.

 

I guess I'm going to have to waist time with customer service.

 

Franny

Re: GoPro Hero 5 external microphone?

These cables will NOT work with the HERO 5. As of right now the only cable that works is the official GoPro cable with the brick.

Re: GoPro Hero 5 external microphone?

I would love to see that video. Please post it here when you can.

I have used this same cable though and when it's plugged in, the only microphones that work are the cameras onboard microphones.
It never registers giving me the external microphone options (Standard, Standard +, etc. etc.).
