It is impossible to find the mic adapter, why?

For the last month I've been unable to find the hero 5 mic adapter, are they replacing the chunky adapter in lieu of a smaller one? Just want to be able to vlog without taking an external recorder and editing in post?

It looks like it's available now (3/31/17 at noon). It does seem to be out a lot though, and we can only hope they come out with a smaller one.

except when i go to order it it says shipping on such a date, all the stores i looked at said 3/31 and some said 4/1... i checked again and now its more time added. i just dont understand how no one has mentioned anything about how theyre not available anywhere

Re: It is impossible to find the mic adapter, why?

People have mentioned it and it definitely is a pain. It's actually this very reason I decided to keep my hero 4. The adapters are way cheaper and easier to come by (and smaller). Hopefully they are making a smaller version and they get it going soon.

It's in stock here i.e. https://www.camforpro.com/gopro-pro-3-5mm-mic-adapter-fuer-hero5/

 

Maybe they are sold out because of people using it as a 'hacker-tool' for reverse engineering the USB-C connector and HeroBus 2.0 protocol (*ups*)
