do all gopros need that microphone extender?

Do I need the "Out of stock" extender to plug in an external mic for the Hero 7?

Hi @coachmadame

 

This is only needed if you wish to use an external microphone for the camera.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: do all gopros need that microphone extender?

For interviewing purposes, it seems a must.  I've been trying to purchase it but it's never in stock.  Are there other brands that you can recommend that will work?  I need to get started on our school projects and am running out of time.  I invested in GoPro cameras and would hate to return everything and use a different brand simply because I cannot get this essential "accessory."
