Is there a Frame that fits the original GoPro HD Hero?

I have 3 of the original GoPros and would like to be able to use the audio. Any other suggestions appreciated.

Re: Is there a Frame that fits the original GoPro HD Hero?

Hello @spirybluff81651

 

Unfortunately, we do not have available GoPro frame that can be used with the HERO HD Original as it is an older camera model. You might be able to check with third-party sellers for frames specifically designed for your camera. By the way, what  were you trying to  use the camera for? Were you trying to capture video with audio? Let us know so we can further help. Alternatively, you can connect with our Support team for a more personalized support. You can reach the team here https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Best regards, 
Marius

Re: Is there a Frame that fits the original GoPro HD Hero?

Hello, thank you. Yes, I realize it's an older model, it's still working fine and would like to continue using it. I actually have 3 of this model. 

Yes, I am wanting to capture ambient audio with video without using another source, it doesn't have to be really high quality, just need to be able to hear it somewhat. I have the head attachment and the plastic covers that mount on it, but the audio can't really be heard at all. I don't know of a workaround except maybe drilling out the plastic of the existing casing.

Where actually is the microphone on this model of GoPro? I can't find it on my manual.

Hi @spirybluff81651

 

For the HD HERO, the microphone is located on the left side if you are facing the lens of the camera.

 

Thanks!

haven't they got a 3.5mm mic socket on the side, so perhaps you can drill a hole in the case & use an external mic

Re: Is there a Frame that fits the original GoPro HD Hero?

I wonder if there are cases available anywhere for those models that already have holes in the side?
