Hero 5 external mic adapter

Hello,

 

Everyone complain about the size of the external microphone adapter for the Hero 5 but also about the hard cable and it's true it's way too big. Anyway ...

 

Anyone know why it's so big ? What's inside ?

 

is there a smaller third party alternative ?

 

thanks

Re: Hero 5 external mic adapter

  Iwanted to  get an extension cable for it . I shall wait again for the promic to be had, big it  really is not?

 

The actual size of the unit is 2LX1WX1/2D  

 

can not open it up unless you remove the  skinn and not sure if it is clipped, you'll destroy thecosmetics of the beuity of this unit

Re: Hero 5 external mic adapter

there are tons of usb-c to 3.5mm jack adapters - 3.5mm only - not usb-c to 3.5+usb-c

We need the EXACT same thing we had for hero4. Gopro please.

Well, it's a complete audio card or what ? ... 

 

There is real problem here, GoPro made a so tiny camera with a so big adapter ... it's hard to understand ...

 

If GoPro ever build smart phone it will look like :
