Rubbing noise on Hero 5 black

When I use the camera in the shorty, every time I flip the camera around I get an awful rubbing noise in the audio. Anything I can do to reduce they rubbing sound?

Re: Rubbing noise on Hero 5 black

Hello @captaincory

 

The sound comes from the vibration produced when moving the mount. It could also be due to the mics likely picking up the sounds of the camera hitting the edges of the housing or the frame. There may be some cushioning you can insert into the housing to minimize the noise and to also make sure that the Shorty legs/parts do not rub or move or slide. One Hub member suggested using anti-fog inserts in between the camera and case, and/or in between movable Shorty parts. I hope this helps. 

Best regards, 
Marius
