Re: Is New Microphone adapter coming for Gorpro 5 to 7 and newer?

The whole external mic thing is ludicrous, there is no reason they could not make a action cam with a 3.5mm jack built right in. They could even make the port waterproof , if they can do it on a samsung Galaxy s9 why the heck can't GOPRO? my S9 Galaxy phone can survive a dunk down to 5 feet or something like that for 30 minutes it's called a IPX rating... "The Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9+ is rated IP68, using the Ingress Protection rating system. The dust rating is 6 (highest level of protection), and the water resistance rating is 8 (water-resistant up to 5 feet for up to 30 minutes)."

@snorkel12068 SAME HERE! Both of my hero 7 cameras overheat and shut down when powered by external battery.

I take the internal battery out and they have not shut down yet even after 6 hours, I have been disabling hypersmooth and doing any stabilization if needed in post so that might make it run a bit cooler as well.

I was able to get a mic adapter from adorama camera by doing the back order option, take like a week and they shipped it out.
