Microphone wind noise is gone!
This video explains how I solved my motovlogging wind noise, crackling and popping problems.
I’ve been on a couple adventures on the 1290R recently, and I’ve tried recording them on my GoPro Hero 5 and Sony stereo microphone.
Unfortunately, the audio has been completely unusable due to excessive wind noise and popping and crackling noises. And it’s entirely my fault – I’ve been running the microphone inside the helmet without any sort of wind protection.
Well not any more, thanks to several YouTubers, primarily these guys:
I’ve crafted a cover out of foam and dead-cat, and managed to get the problem sorted. No longer do I get any popping or crackling, and the wind noise levels are greatly reduced and now at an acceptable level.
And as a added bonus, I’m using a different GoPro mount, so I can now get the camera level.
Here’s my setup (now with level camera shots and less wind noise!):
– GoPro Hero 5 Black (side mounted)
– Sony ECM CS10 Stereo Microphone (covered in foam and dead-cat)
