GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

Hi everyone, 

I want to use guimbal like EVO GP PRO or Feiyu-Tech G4S BUT there is a BIG AUDIO NOISE ISSUE  (Another one) with THIS !!

 

So i would find another like EVO SS and it's the same Audio Problem !!! same Audio Problem !!!

 

So It's a problem by the right mic on the Gopro who going into resonance with guimbal motors !

 

And it's the likely same problem same problem on Karma Grip, but with the update who cut the right mic it's prety less noisy !

 

 

SO, can you upgrade the gopro hero 5 with an option to manually cut the Right mic for using it with Guimbal !!!

 

PLEASE ! PLEASE !

 

 

PS: Sorry for my english, i'm French

Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

I had no problem with motor noise using the Karma grip. Must just be on the Feiu products. Can you just cover the mic hole will that reduce the noise?

Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

Yes the last update will support karma !

 

HERO5 Black update v01.20

  • Highlights:

    • Enables Auto Upload to GoPro Plus
    • Adds key performance and connectivity improvements
    • Enables front screen navigation with camera buttons
  • Additional Product Compatibility

    • Enables support for Auto Upload to GoPro Plus*
    • Adds multiple language support for Remo (Waterproof Voice Activated Remote)
    • Enables support for Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter from GoPro
  • Performance Improvements

    • Enables use of Exposure Control with Protune™
  • Usability Improvements

    • Enables front screen navigation with camera buttons

I think it will be a great thing if Gopro may be the choise to use filter manualy without karma for other Guimbals !

There is advantage to use Evo or Feiyu-Tech like BEST autonomie !!

Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

Well I have a problem same one with lanparte gimbal .. I have a hero 4 session which is perfect .. but the hero 5 black catches horrible noise ... The gimbal itself is a super silent one .. like I said the hero 4 session is absolutely amazing on it .. the hero 5 is useless C's of the audio  .. I will have to sell it unless the issue is resolved .. so please release a few that filters out the motor noise or allows mics to be turned off .. covering a mic just muffles the audio so it's still useless

Hi,
If you have a gimbal can you test your hero 5 black with audio on "wind" ?

Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

i did test it on wind .. same result .. almost.. still not even close to silent tho.. dont forget i use the same gimbal(diff clamp) for hero 4 session.. and there is absolutely not one slight gimbal hint of sound .. but 5black just picksup whining and grunting.. i dont even mind grunting but that whine is something you cant unhear.. so my tests were .. her5 auto sound =fail   hero5 stereo=bigger fail...  hero5 wind=still heard .. hero 5 wind with side mic covered= gimbal noise gone but so is any high pitch audio.. voiced sound like a censored confession.. and last test was hero5 with top mic covered = gimbal noise remained and voices were crap ... i did all the tests indoor .. so maybe im being a bit picky .. oh wait one more test .. downgrade to 1.5 and wind = sucess ish .. but camera was unstable on that fw and i couldnt have that

Re: GIMBAL MOTOR NOISE ON GOPRO HERO 5 !!

have you tried the fw 1.5? cs for me the camera kept freezing from time to time ..so i went back to 1.55 also i hated the update popups ..gopro should fix this issue and release a fw update as soon as possible ..
