Hero 7 Black External Mic?

[ New ]
I'm posting this because I can't believe its actually true. Did I really get screwed over and buy the only model (2018 H7 Black) which doesn't have external mic support?

Dont these cameras have wifi/bluetooth, why can't those be used?

This is a several hundred dollar camera with no mic jack?

Personnally what i can't believe it's that people buy "a several hundred dollars camera" without knowing features of what they buy...

With a mile long list of features it's easy to assume a camera in 2018 will have a Jack. And yes I know the adapter exists but it defeats all the water resistant properties.

Really dissapointed it has wireless connectivity but not for mics.

As i said, know what you buy. If you assume instead of check, you can't complain you. A build-in jack wouldn't no more water resistant than the adapter.

 

Send feedback to request wireless mic support feature.

Oct 2013 the 3.5mm jack was removed     Oct 2014 the Usb micro port  was used as a mic port for the hero 4 black, then Oct 5th 2015 and on the Promic was used, today Dec 2019 soon to be released   the Media Module  @sylkgx  totally agree.     Blame yourself on that one I say.
