The GoPro Media Mod for HERO9/HERO10/HERO11 Black is an external housing that outfits the camera with a built-in directional mic with wind suppression, 3.5mm mic port, micro-HDMI output, and two cold shoe mounts for attaching accessories. The weather-resistant Media Mod protectively covers the camera on all four sides while still providing access to the bottom mount, front and rear displays, and all key controls.
Like the HERO8/HERO9/HERO10/HERO11 Black, the GoPro Light Mod is ultracompact and waterproof down to 33′. It’s designed to attach to the separately sold GoPro Media Mod, which is an external frame with shoe mounts and other features. Separate Media Mods are available for the HERO8, HERO9, HERO10, and HERO11.
The Light Mod attaches on the top or side of the Media Mod, securing into one of the shoe mounts. Alternatively, it can be attached on various optional off-camera shoe mounts. The light features a 5000K daylight color temperature and 90+ CRI. It allows you to illuminate your subject with wide, smooth, and even light. A diffuser is also included for softening the light output.
