GoPro Hero 5 Black Audio help PLEASE!!

We have a GoPro Hero 5 Black that we use to do YouTube videos. I am usually holding the camera so hearing me is not the issue. My partner is sometimes away from the camera and she can't be heard at all. I've seen that sometimes people use this wireless thing they put on their belt so that the camera will pick up her voice even from far away. Is this available for our camera and if so any info would be much appreciated! We are not totally tech savvy! lol Thank you!!!

Re: GoPro Hero 5 Black Audio help PLEASE!!

Hello @rockydive21741

 

Thank you for reaching out. Your camera actually works with external microphones that improve audio capture. This is made possible by using a mic adapter.  Should you consider using an external microphone, we have a list of recommended external microphones here.. You can also explore into the manual settings for audio to get the best results, depending on the recording environment. 

 

There are also a number of YouTube videos that provide tips for great audio using your GoPro.

Feel free to post back for any other questions that you might have. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
