Re: Bad sound of being handled

the wind mic is located on the bottom of the camera as well the  port door side, that will be one nice  reason why you get that noise, the stereo  are located on the top and mode on side higher up.

Re: Bad sound of being handled

I know hte frustration, grab the camera and go.  Honestly  I more or less lived with gopros issue we all have, if anyone else here tells you differ maybe they do things differently.  

 

what is the set up  that you are having issues with. some complained the gopro 3 way....

Re: Bad sound of being handled

I’ve had GoPro since they started and never had any issues, this is the first time which is why I’m surprised. My 3 had much better sound quality than this but I guess I’ll just have to deal with it if it’s the norm. Just wanted to make sure I didn’t have a dud!

Re: Bad sound of being handled

I hear ya. if you feel its defective call gopro.   It is more  a gain issue that gopro never addressed at all.

Re: Bad sound of being handled

If you dont mind, try wearing a grip glove I had one or two that worked when holding the handle and there was no extra sound at all.
