We all know GoPro has someone monitoring these comments. We would, "assume" they are working on a solution, but the silence is deadly. I have a 5 & 7, but I'm starting to think this was a bad decision. As users, we need an audio solution and just providing an acknowledgement or update would go far in goodwill.
Don't make me start saying, "GoPro sucks."

Just chiming in from a rep is all it takes but not to hear them say nothing yet, say a little more then just soeme reasurance if asked. it will hurt them t to say any word

I would rather they make the camera slightly bigger on the Hero 8 and just include a real 3.5 jack right with the camera.
If Sony can do it so can GoPro.
I need a action cam for fishing that can be powered all day by a battery pack and have a external mic with a deadcat all at the same time.

GoPro is about taking our Money.
GoPro can come out with the Hero 8 Black vloggers camera separate from the Hero 8, and charge us more money then a Hero 7 amd mic adapter. Maybe they should also make their own 50 cent microphone as well.
LIke said GoPro makes money off of us this way to place back in the camera they must raise the price again that will not make others happy if they keep to one camera but it offers as a option to use it or not. can not have both worlds on this device if asked. and that is where some small camwra company will chime in and make a killing
GoPro and a Vlogger on the mic product out of stock, good luck. I hear ya but that is all that will happen.

For anyone looking for the mic adapter, it is now available at https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-3/pro-3.5mm-mic-adapter/AAMIC-001.html .

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.
They still aren't replying. Total imbeciles if you ask me... This has happened before. Management needs to be strung up by their privates...

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.
Gone silent? Now that's a well thought out strategy. It never works.. Who the hell is in charge over there?
