external mic - hero 8 - noise

[ New ]

Hello,

I am having a problem with recording quality audio using an external mic. The mic is zoom H2n and it works fine ( I have tested it separately). Tried with two different jack cables. Tried all four go pro 8 input/output seetings. I here noise which I don't hear when I record with both of the devices separately. Any ideas what to do?

Hi @grzegorzg082

 

See if switching the Wireless Connection off on the camera will help.

 

Thanks!

No, that doesn't seem to help.

If you are using a GoPro Mic Adapter or a GoPro Media Mod, than any microphone with a 3.5mm TRS adapter will work with your camera.  It would take too long to list every single model mic fitting that description on a webpage.

 

If you're using a media mod, make sure you have the proper mic input selected on the input output option screen, such as standard mic, standard mic+, Powered Mic, Powered Mic+, Line In.

B4 we all guess. Please post a sample and exact setup.
