is Gorpro making a newer adapter? hopefully?
I see it out of stock in most places including GoPro website, Based on reviews it's a horrible product and huge.
Most complains are that it's huge/expensive and super unreliable.
if we already are paying this much for the camera I'm sure most people don't want to pay an addition of $50 for an adapter.
I hope GoPro does something soon, I see most vloggers that are looking for a camera option that's not DSLR or mirrorless are going to Osmo Pocket instead, and GoPro is literally handing them the business without even trying to listen to people that actually love their products and can use it for more than just an action cam.
If only companies would listen to their client base complains and future wishes, they would have done way better.

GoPro, please answer or come up with something new, please.
if you read your own message board you see that there are all kind of issues with this adapter.
ignoring your customer's requests and wishes is not a good practice and you will slowly lose customers. for little stupid stuff that can very well be fixed.

There is no fix as there is no analogue input on the Hero 5/6/7. You need the adaptor.
The only other option is a wireless bluetooth mic option which has been a possible solution, but so far not released.

I wonder how much longer we have to wait for a proper solution.
That adapter is already 3 generation old and people hate it.
every single reviewer and users say it's to big and doesn't work right, you have to mess around with it for it to even work right.
for the same price they need to make a Bluetooth version available or let us choose whatever Bluetooth microphone we want to use

The Hero 7 has a significant audio delay with the current adapter (no issue on the 5 or 6).
There is a long discussion here. Gopro went completly silent on when/if this will be fixed.

I do not have a significant sync problem with the adapter.
I was running LINEAR 1080/25 mode. Perfect sync.
Also the adaptor has worked flawlessly out of the box on two different Hero7 Blacks.
