Hero 6 Black Audio

When shooting fireworks video with my GoPro I get very very faint audio. Like if I import into iMovie and crank audio to 400% I get a little bit but not much. However if I'm inside and i just talk into the camera it works fine, both in and out of case. Tried with fireworkds displays in the summer with little to no wind and then just a few days ago on New Year's Eve. Any suggestions?

Re: Hero 6 Black Audio

Hello @jonathans57381. The proximity of the source of sound, as well as sources of interference in the recording environment play a big factor. You may use an external microphone through a mic adapter to improve sound volume and quality.  There is a list of recommended microphones here https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/External-Microphone-Recommendations
