Hero 4 and mic adapter

I would like to record my gig using my hero 4 with a line out from my mixing desk.
Can I do this with a 3.5mm mic adapter ??
Hero 4 isn’t listed for this accessory but I have seen you tube videos saying it works.
I’ve made the mistake of buying the generic adapter and it not working, I don’t want to find out after I buy the overpriced GoPro adapter that it doesn’t work!

Hello @jt38

 

There is an official mic adapter specific for the HERO4 Silver.

It is no longer available on gopro.com but you may check other stores/channel if they still have it.

 

For reference, you may also check External Microphone Recommendations

 

Thanks!

Ej

Could you point me in the right direction of where to find the specific hero 4 silver adapter please? I’m not having any luck.

Re: Hero 4 and mic adapter

@nimbleoasi0065, yes, the Pro. 3.5mm Mic Adapter will let you record and charge at the same time.

No, the mentioned Pro 3.5 Mic Adapter will not work with the HERO4. You can only use the early GoPro mic adapter (that does not have a power input).
