Re: Hero5 black wind noise

@grandstorm0750 - Wind noise is probably going to be an issue on motorcycle at speed. One thing you might try is to make sure that the Stereo Only option is not selected.

 

To confirm that, swipe right and then continue swiping right until you get to the Manual Audio Control settings. If that setting is off, the camera will automatically select between Wind Only and Stereo Only to give you the best possible sound. If that setting is on, either turn it off or make sure that Wind Only is selected.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Hero5 black wind noise

Hi yes I've tried all mic modes and all seem worse than the hero 4 black i also have wind noise will be a problem when using with motorbikes but was expecting it to be a little better due to the hero 5 blacks new mics and advance wind noise reduction but its not it worse why is this it almost seems as if the wind only option makes the wind noise worse when surely it sure make it better

Same Problem here ! 
I tried all the sound configurations possible and it's worse and worse. I don't see any extra quality using the wind only mode while using my gopro on a motorcycle.

Re: Hero5 black wind noise

Manual and Wind, or buy the promic and   external mic  and you'll have  better sound, it will cancel the messed up sound gopro  made.

 

If you  have that chance return your camera and wait for the  sound  to be fixed by checking in, for me its way to late.

Same here can't get the wind sound off while riding and sometimes just no sound at all ???? Very fustrating since I didn't have this problem before with the older versions....  :(

aparently its an issue at 10-20mph too. the important part is that its worse than the hero 3 no matter what settings are used.

how do you quote someone on this forum?
