Hello @skipguitar5150

 

In addition to what Fishy has given, we have a list of recommended external microphones here

This article also discusses important  information on the using the Pro 3.5 mm Mic Adapter. 

I hope this helps. 

 

Cheers, 

Marius

Re: hero 7 black external microphone

Thanks for the reply. I have an Apogee USB MIC which has a usb connection not 3.5 mm. I don't see how that is going to plug in with the camera in the case? For my other mic that is 3.5 mm how would that plug in? In order to get the camera in the case,I have to close the door which covers the input--- I have to be missing something here. thanks for your help

Google the promic and you’ll see the accessory. YouTube a video. Also did you know the port door is removable. Some of this info is in a Manuel

Re: hero 7 black external microphone

Thanks, I was able to remove it. After more research, it looks like my only option is to get the promic accessory. What 3.5mm microphones do you think I should take a look at? I only need one for field recording because in my music studio I can record direct audio into Logic and replace the gopro audio.  I would mostly be doing mobile recordings something like two guitars performing or one electric guitar thru Positive Grid Bias Amp software played thru an iphone into a battery powered amp. Thanks for the help with my new setup.
