Re: Gopro hero 8 wind noise!

I wonder if the new v1.50 update helps the audio at all. I would try, but we have rain in San Diego for the next 3 days.

Re: Gopro hero 8 wind noise!

For me:  Front mic  is not the issue of wind, its actually the side Mic ports once I covered that I get some, minimal wind.  I am and may go back to the full mic muff cover. this is a WINDY day best sounds of the camera for me

Re: Gopro hero 8 wind noise!

IMHO I think the way you had the camera held was deflecting wind into the microphones. I have shot video mounted to a car with speeds in excess 50 miles per hour and do not have anywhere near the wind noise generated in your video. Anything mounted close to the camera that can deflect wind into and onto the camera can create excessive wind noise.
