Recording Audio on GoPro 3

Postby fishnfreak » Mon Mar 10, 2014 1:44 pm

Hi Guys,

After making a few videos now, i find myself wanting to be able to add some speech to them. I add music made on TrakAx but id like to be able to talk more in them, whether the viewers want it or not haha.

If i add a GoPro closer top me, say on the sideboard of my PA, would it be close enough to pick up speech at all. Or, is there a compatible GoPro product like an external microphone that could be used? I dont really want to go to the trouble of using a voice recorder and trying to create voiceovers.

Sound is the weak point of the gopros. They will pick it up better if you use the skeleton housing or an external mike but both of those stuff the waterproofing. Voice overs might have to be the way you go.

Is there any other sports cameras that are better equipped for sound?
