Hero 7 black – external microphone

I'd like to use an external microphone, but I'm not very keen on the bulky adapter for obvious reasons.

 

A quick googling tells me there are smooth third-party microphones out there with USB connectors, designed for the Hero 3 or 4, for instance Commlite CoMica Lavalier or BOYA BY LM20. Can these be used with the 7?

No, unfortunately you have to get the mic adaptor.

 

This thing from Cam for Pro is the best solution I have seen to accomodate it.

 

This bracket also gives you a cold shoe to attach the microfone so you don't need to invest in any of those silly metall cages.
