GoPro Hero 6 external mic no audio?

Hi there,

 

I bought a GoPro Hero 6, an official mic adapter, and a recommended rode shotgun mic. All videos indicate that it should simply plug in and work, but it has not so far. I don't use it during QuikCapture, I've tried turning on Protune, but the audio settings just say 'NA'. It doesn't seem to recognise it is there. What am I missing?

 

Thanks.

I bought a Hero 6 from GoPro official Indian dealer, also official GoPro mic adaptor from Amazon India along with 3.5mm lavalier lapel mic from Amazon. Now  that my camera settings just say audio input : NA. It does not seem to recognise the audio input, what should i do, please help.

Hi @pazova,

 

Which Lav mic did you get? You will need a 3.5mm TRS adapter most likely if it is not picking up the Mic.

 

Best,

Ryan

Hi @pazova,

 

What version of firmware is your HERO6 running?

Hi Ryan, I have updated to Ver1.6., the external audio input feature is missing.

Dont know why it has happened.

I had the same issue and I returned my GoPro audio adapter and the replacement works fine...
