Re: External mic adapter noise.

@mariustanya any news? I need to know if I have to give back my GoPro and mic adapter, and ask for a refund!

Re: External mic adapter noise.

Hello @dccr68 and @clawzskunk

 

Sorry, we do not have new information to share at this time.

We have not received any update from the team yet.

 

Thanks!

Re: External mic adapter noise.

@aragon1006 with the greatest of respect that’s not good enough when you make yourself the sole producer. I’m now stuck with a camera I cannot use for its intended purpose

Re: External mic adapter noise.

Look in the blogs.
That's a very well known problem, but gopro doesn't mention it.
I bought a Gopro + mic adapter just for high quality music streaming. But it doesn't work as intended.

I need an answer, or a cash refund.

Re: External mic adapter noise.

Still no further response, even when attempting to escalate via the support team. What the hell is going on over there!?
