Bad sound of being handled

I have the hero 5 black and unless it is mounted on a tripod or head mount there is terible sound of being handled. Even with no case on it bare in my hand. Even worse when carried on a trupod mount or handle.

I wanted to attach a video but it won't let me! only wants photo files...Smiley Frustrated

I'd love to see if I can help with your audio issue.

Sorry I’m not sure what you mean! Are you saying it’s normal, because you could have just said that. If so that’s fine I’ll deal with it. I was just disappointed having “upgraded”!
