Gone are the days of built in mic jacks, for sure due to waterproofing. No?

They should just add Bluetooth mic compatibility, basically what I’m doing.

hdmi just an output, to your tv.

GoPro made it so that you must use their piece of expensive turd mic adapter, it's not about waterproofing cause there's the covers for the input ports anyway.

That HDMI port seems to be so important to have but till this day I have not met anyone that uses it.
Which port? I use the mini usb port on my GoPro Hero4 for a mic input. I just got a battery bacpac too, so in theory I should be able to have double mini usb ports now.

I'm guessing you are talking about this little connector on the right? Sorry, I spent time writing the above paragraph so I don't want to delete it now. :p For the port...I'm guessing so... since it says hdmi next to it, but it seems really small even for a mini-hdmi port.

Yup that port.. As @HippoDrone said.. NEVER USED IT.. I dare say 99.9% of the users here have NEVER used this piece of turd port, yet it remains on the camera. While the mic port which almost everyone uses is removed.

UP YOURS, GOPRO! :mad:

I use a Sena 10c EVO and love the simplicity. I’ve used GoPro, drift, and external audio recorders in the past but would get tired of the extra steps every time I wanted to hop on the bike so I’d end up not recording. With the Sena I can record all day or use comms with one device. It also records the group chat on comm which makes for cool videos.

This is why I like my current setup - one helmet, one camera, one mic. If I want the second camera, just grab it and put it on the bike [<1m], start recording on both, clap, light my cigar, and go. When the Hero 8 runs out of juice, pull over and swap batteries in both cameras, then continue riding.

I loved the idea of recording off my comms device, but my SENA SPH-10FM or whatever model number it has ... well it just doesn't record good audio at all, no matter what I tried. Phone calls are clear enough [nobody's complaining] but I'll be darned if I could get any decent audio out of it.
