This is my first post here. I hope I might be able to get a little help.
I have a GoPro Hero 5 and I have it adapted for use on a DJI Osmo Mobile. Since the GoPro records all of the motor noises of the gimbal, I decided to get the GoPro microphone adapter to use an off-camera microphone (Rode VideoMicro). It works fine with the mic plugged into the GoPro adapter and the adapter plugged into the Hero 5. I have audio preferences set to "Standard".
Here is the problem though...
The GoPro mic adapter is too short. As another guy mentioned here, the way around this is to add an extension cable from the GoPro to the GoPro Mic Adapter, so the rectangular brick can be mounted on the gimbal and not suspended with the camera. Every single USB Type-C extension cable I have tried does not work. I really don't get it. I mean, isn't every wire simply connected at one end and the other end? What gives? Any work arounds?
In essence, I am looking for a short USB Type-C extension cable that will plug into the Hero 5 on one end (Male End) and the GoPro Microphone adapter at the other end (Female End).
