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

i finally figured oou tyou can use a type-c extension cable wiht ur gopro hero 7 black and most likely on the 5 and 6 asewll

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


 

HEY GUYS IMPORTANT NOTE!!! IM SO SORRY sorry about the ending i had to replace the music i used hopefully within a few days it will upload and fix thanks and pls be patient i hope you get the important parts of how to use the adapter...my sincerest apologies... I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT ❕❕❕❕❕ ...
