Re: Hero 8 Black Bluetooth connection

@1pandamonium, this isn't currently a feature in the camera. The HERO8 Black can only be paired with the GoPro App on a mobile device and/or Smart Remote. Anyhow, we appreciate the insight as it can help us build a better experience with our products. We'll relay this information to the team in charge. Let us know if anything else comes up. Stay stoked & have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!

Re: Hero 8 Black Bluetooth connection

I just ordered the mic adapter for my Hero 8. What microphone is best for motovlogging and where can I buy it? Also, what is the best way, if any, to connect it so that the voices of the other riders are heard as well? I don't like my videos to be one side or when I sound like I'm talking to myself.
Any input would greatly be appreciated.
Thank you.

Re: Hero 8 Black Bluetooth connection

Please note that if you're planning on directly recording audio to your GoPro, you're either going to need a GoPro Microphone Adapter or the GoPro Media Mod (for the Hero 8).

 

I personally use the Fotowelt Air for motovlogging.  For others voices, they would have to use the same wireless system and just broadcast on the same channel.  Since this is a radio mic, it will pic up multiple audio signals at once unlike a bluetooth connection which may not.

 

I did a review on the microphone here:

In this review I decide to test out the Fotowelt air. This is a professional wireless microphone system and I see how it stacks up against budget microphones...

Hello, @1pandamonium. Not particularly for motovlogging but we also have a list of recommended external microphones at https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/External-Microphone-Recommendations/ta-p/390259 that you might want to check out.
