Re: Which microphone is used in stereo only mode? (Gopro 8)

I think gopro done away with the third  mic and only placed two on  the camera   the front  facing forward and   on the bottom and side  is the Stereo and wind, the other is the stereo.  that is my guess without looking at the book

Say what, I didn't quite get that... From what I understand the Gopro 8 has a front, bottom and side mic. Which are being used in stereo mode?

On page 6, pg 7  No 9 shows Two mics. those are the Stereo mic  as well your wind Mic, it is a combined mic, get that.

Page 137: Your HERO8 Black uses three microphones to capture sound.

If you look at a RAW Protune audio file, you will find that there are three audio channels that are recorded. It's not that the camera uses two specific mics for stereo and a different one for wind reduction. The camera samples the audio channels and drops the channel(s) with the highest clipping wind noise.

gopro took away the  older style Mic ports and simply created two vs three
