Re: My First GoPro Video of Group Ride!
And yeah I get lots of wind noise too, it just is what it is. That's why I just laid music over it and called it a day. You can look on youtube for various motovlogging setups where they attach a mic and run it into the helmet for pretty cheap. That way the mic basically picks up the same sound that you hear in the helmet: more engine, less wind, and your own voice (sometimes you can hear the Senas you're paired with if your volume is loud enough). I have a Sena on my helmet, so I already have a mic in there but sadly the Sena is not compatible with the Hero 5's.
Also, I used to shoot in wide mode for a month or so, which gave a great field of view but everything was just too small. The video you just saw was shot in medium view, which is still plenty wide (in case of an accident or something on the side of the road), and allows me to see further ahead.
My settings are: medium view, 1080p/60fps, and I use a 64gb card which allows for 2h 48m of record time with those settings.
Thanks for watching and hope this helped
