Re: gopro hero 7 black usb c OTG

@swiftwave58711, that's an interesting question. I haven't personally tried this. Well, while the GoPro camera (HERO5 and newer) can be connected to a computer using USB-C cable, I can't seem to find any documentation saying that USB-C type OTG will or will not work. I'll go ahead and check for further details about this. Will keep you posted as soon as I have any information.

 

In the meantime, let's wait to see if other users have already tried this workflow and hear how it worked for them.
