Gopro Max don't support Microphones

[ New ]

I would like to ask for a firmware update to make gopro max in hero mode, to accept external microphones. I understand that in 360 view mode is not a good idea, but since the camera has this compatibility of use only 1 lens, why not enable the use of an external microphone for it? It's too much to ask?

Hello, Thank you so much for your reply. Hope that the staff cares about this issue. It would be a good improvement since the camera has the capability to operate in Hero mode.

Hello,

 

I fully agree with what was said earlier: The GoPro Max is used in many applications, some of them don't care about a portion of the 360° field being "blocked" by a cable.

 

An addition of an external mike capability outweights that by far!

 

I do hope that this pretty standard feature will be made available in a future firmware release ASAP – this will avoid cumbersome parallel recording and later re-sync of the audio recording.

 

Thnaks for escalating the request.
