GoPro Hero8 Black Media Mod
GoPro is offering a directional microphone for the Hero 8 and it is called the Media Mod. Stupid name. Anyway. The best part is that the Media Mod has a 3.5mm microphone jack that will allow you to use other decent microphones. We suggest the Rode VideoMicro due to it's audio quality and that it will be out of the shot. You could also use the Rode Wireless Go which can be mounted on the Hero 8 Black Media Mod side mounted cold shoe. You will find links on this page to the microphones.
UPDATE. It has been reported that whilst the microphone on the Media Mod is better than the Microphone on the Hero 8 / 7 black, that it is still not exactly good. Not Youtube - able, if that is a term. So, to get the best audio out of your Hero8 Black, get this Media Mod and then get the Mic Adapter which will allow you to use say the Rode Videomic Micro or others.
Turn your HERO8 Black into a production powerhouse with the mountable Media Mod. It features an incredible built-in directional mic and a 3.5mm mic port for your favorite external mics. Use the HDMI-out port for easy playback on your TV and two cold-shoe mounts to attach lights, mics or LCD screens.
