Re: GOPRO WE DESERVE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MIC ADAPTER

Hello @toughdive2820.  Does your microphone have three black rings? If yes, you might be using a TRRS microphone. When using a TRRS microphone, you will experience difficulties when the mic is connected directly to the Pro 3.5mm mic Adapter. This will require the use of a TRRS to TRS adapter. See the details discussed in this article External Microphone Recommendations

 

There is more information on using the external microphones with the GoPro camera here. Let us know what you find out. Thanks!

Re: GOPRO WE DESERVE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MIC ADAPTER

Thanks for the link to the compatibility page but all three of the microphones I tried are TRS type with 2 rings. One of the microphones is a Rode Video Micro with a 3.5mm TRS type plug.

It seems bizarre that it only works with the plug not fully inserted?!

Re: GOPRO WE DESERVE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MIC ADAPTER

It is odd, indeed. Thanks for the reply, @toughdive2820 . If you haven't done it yet, please get in touch with our Support team so they can further assist you regarding this matter. There maybe a fault to the adapter, but we cannot say for certain at this time. You may reach Support by phone or chat through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs . When you do, you can direct them to this thread for reference. We'd love to hear how it works out. Thanks!

Re: GOPRO WE DESERVE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MIC ADAPTER

So what gives about the mic adapter? Still no stock anywhere.

 

If you can't provode stock then update the firmware so that third party devices can be used.

 

If the issue is with wifi and streaming and you haven't got a solution then sell it for half the price with a caveat that it cannot be used for streaming. (Almost £50 is a joke anyway)

 

I don't want to do live streaming yet I can't get one anyway!!

 

Total fail GoPro, very disappointing

Clever Training only ships in the continental US, and nowhere else in the world.

 

Too bad GoPro decided to sell their products all over the world, because then, nobody else would care.
