Re: GoPro audio adapter not working with Rode Videomicro and Hero 8 Black

I haven’t tried it on a different model Hero. I bought the adapter because I watched a video when the Hero 8 just came out and the guy said he thought that the adapter was a better option. He used it with the Ulanzi G8-5. I bought both. Where is that guy now? 🙂. Thanks for the reply. I’m chatting with support now. I may have to buy the Media Mod if the8 no longer supports the audio adapter. I like the Ulanzi cage better than the Mod, but audio is more important

I like the Fotodiox GoTough Shark Cage. I'll post pictures sometime this week. But you can set it up how you like.

Re: GoPro audio adapter not working with Rode Videomicro and Hero 8 Black

I have mine set up exactly the way you have yours. No audio. GoPro support said the Hero 8 only supports external mics using the Media Mod. Your video proves them wrong. It must be that my adapter is bad. Thanks for the video.

I may just buy the Media Mod or another adapter in the meantime. But I’m glad someone shows that it works with the Hero 8.

This was the video that led me to believe it would work.  I must have a bad usb-c connection or the audio adapter isn't working.  Once the social distancing stuff ends I'll be able to borrow some mics or other GoPros to test it out.
