Re: Extension cable for Audio adapter for hero 5/6/7

Hi guys,

I have recently purchased a Hero7Black. (My first gopro)

Am abount to buy the audio adapter for using external mic.

Since i vlog on mototrbike, i find the adapter brick pretty huge as already notice by all.

Was wondering if its possible to use an extension cable with usb c type male female ports on either ends so that i can position the adapter a bit further away from the camera, like maybe at the back of the helmet.

 

Has anyone tried this?

 

Regards,

Shomit
