Re: Pro 3.5mm Mic Adaptor, record external mic and charge simultaneously?

[ New ]

I appreciate the conversation and I offer this clarification. I don't really care if I can charge the camera, I mostly just want to know if I can operate the camera on an external battery and use an external microphone at the same time. I have a HERO7 Black. It seems like the answer might be yes, but I'm not seeing anything definitive.

 

Thanks,

You definitely can. But if you read the thread I have started here: External microphone not recognized by HERO8 there is a strong possibility that you have to plug the mic to the adapter after turning on the camera in order for the camera to recognize it.

 

As for the battery personally I remove it when I operate the camera by an external source.
