Really disappointed in GoPro. Bought the Hero Black a few weeks ago with the intention of adding a mic (which is really needed for audio). The mic adaptor needed.... has been out of stock for weeks now. No one has it. I called GoPro and was told that they don't even know when it will be back in stock. If I can't run an external mic (as the Hero 7 allows), not sure I want to keep the camera. I have a limited time to return the camera and without knowing if/when GoPro will have the adaptor in, I may need to return the camera for my money back. It is a real shame that a company can't even give some type of time frame on a very popular accessory.
Is it so popular that they cannot keep it in stock? Did something go wrong with the manufacturing? Is a new design coming out? Knowing _something_ would help.

Sorry to hear about the trouble, @toddc858. While we do not have any information yet as to when the stocks will be available again, you should be able to get this accessory at any of GoPro's authorized online / physical retailers.

Same problem here. I've been waiting for the adapter to be back in stock for over a month now. Even when trying to order it from Amazon, says that it will be shipped after one or two months, meaning I assume, they don't have it available in stock from whoever the retailer may be. No one seem to have it.
