Re: do I connect to my mac using the HDMI

Hi @stank16

 

You would need the USB-C cable.

See Import Camera Files to a Computer - Mac for reference.

 

Thanks!

Re: do I connect to my mac using the HDMI

The HDMI port is for showing the video on a TV, monitor or other display device or to connect it to an HDMI recorder.  To access your files on the Gopro you need the appropriate cable to connect your MAC to the USB C port on the camera.  Alteratively you need a micro-sd card reader on your computer so you can take the card out of the camera and insert it into the MAC.
