Mic with Hero 7 white

Now... I am aware that you are unable to use the GoPro audio adapter with the Hero 7 white, but what if you were to utilize the USB-C instead? Like a USB-C to aux for example, then to your microphone. Is there something I’m missing here or could that work?

No you are not missing anything  there is no  way to getto the external mic wit husb at all.

Re: Mic with Hero 7 white

Hi @sweetwater3557,

 

The HERO7 Silver/ White cameras do not have compatibility with external microphones. These cameras are simplified version, yet built tough and totally waterproof — just grab it and go for it. For more information, you can check this article at https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/introducing-hero7 that explains the features of HERO7 cameras.

I haven't come across a situation yet where USB-C type microphone aux or adapter has been used for these cameras, thus I won't be able to verify if that setup can be a workaround. Let's see if other users have already tried this and hear their experience.


Kind Regards,
Ann
