Popping and crackling with Sony ECMCS3 microphone[ New ]
I have a Sony ECMCS3 stero mic that I have used for a couple of years with my Hero 4 Silver. It has served well and worked flawlessly. I recently picked up the Hero 6 and the new mic adapter. The mic appears to work fine at low speed but as the amount of noise picks up there is a consistent popping and crackling noise in the audio. Here is an example video from motovlogger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DjaN9iNhCE
I have the same issue and a couple of other folks on youtube have the same issue. The issue appears to be with the mic and not the mic adapter as it goes away when a different mic is used. I view this as a fairly significant issue because this Sony mic appears in the list of compatible microphones on the GoPro website: https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/External-Microphone-Recommendations
Any ideas GoPro?
