Re: How many microphones does Hero 6 have?

Top  next to the Shuuter is one mic, side by the front screen is the other mic. the  one by the port is for wind only.  that be how many?   SInce gioro does not know how to make a speaker a mic that is not a mic yet down the road like DOD FH-200HD camera they use the speaker as a mic.  

 

  on certain editors you can access the three tracks for audio.
