hero 5 with karma grip

so i picked up a karma grip today and the sound really sucks when shooting videos.. i looked at all the other gimbals on the market and they aren't good either but i figured the karma would be the best since its gopro... no such luck

 

if i plug in an external mic would it kill the mics on the camera and hope to cut out gimbal motor noise? i know it can't be done with the karma grib since the usb is plugged into the hero5.. but i have no problem buying a gimbal and a mic? will this work and has anyone done it? will an external mic help with the gimbal noise?

Re: hero 5 with karma grip

i have the same problem!! i have been trying to find out if you can shut off 2 of the 3 mic's built into the hero 5 as one of the mics is sitting right on a moter, but by turning them off and only using the front mic i think you may not get the noise but i dont know how to turn off the other 2 mics on the 5. if i find out ill coment back on this post as may save you havng to buy and a different mic that you would have to plug in

@rapiddawn5684 You are probably best off just using an external audio recorder. At least as of now until the possible firmware update on the Hero5 Black camera.
