audio bitrate for a GoPro[ New ]
I have a GoPOro Hero 4 Silver
The audio quality records at 128kbps audio bit rate.
That is really compressed and noticable!
Is there a way to get better audio quality?
I'm baffled why there isn't a drop-down menu to select upwards from 128kbps and up in the usual MP3 bitrates...like a digital voice recorder. 128, 256, 384, 512, 640...this would be so awesome!!
My Canon EOS M ($300 camera from 2012) records at 10x the audio bitrate of the Silver 4.
I can live with the video compression, but the audio compression is not ideal.
So I hope there's a future fix for audio bitrate choices or else my next portable camera will not be a GoPro.
I'm a MUSICIAN and sound is just as important as visual.
