How To Attach An External Microphone To The FeiyuTech G6 and GoPro

Published

on

In this video, I show you how to attach and use an external microphone with a GoPro Hero 6 Black and FeiyuTech G6. This will also work with other GoPro cameras as well such as the Hero 5 Black. One common problem when filming with a GoPro and a Gimbal is it has a tendency to pick up undesirable motor vibration noise from the Gimbal. For some, this is not a problem as they tend not to use the audio track. For others who use a GoPro and the FeiyuTech G6 for Vlogging, this can be a huge annoyance. The solution is to use an external microphone which is quite easy to attach to the FeiyuTech G6. This allows for crystal clear audio and no motor noise.

The parts needed to attach a microphone to the FeiyuTech G6 are very minimal and you may already have everything you need lying around. The unfortunate thing is having to use the GoPro Hero 5/6 microphone adapter which is quite a large bulky device, but it does the trick. Follow along in my video and see the sample photos down below.

Here is a list of all the parts needed to attach a microphone to the FeiyuTech G6 for use with a GoPro Hero 6 Black. Either the Rode VideoMic Go or VideoMicro are both good choices when it comes to small external microphones for the GoPro Hero 5/6 Black.

There are many methods and hardware you could use to attach the microphone. I just found this setup to be the easiest with minimal hardware and extra bulk.

I found attaching the microphone adapter to the side of the GoPro was the best option.

 

You can use a cold shoe similar to this one to attach the microphone to the FeiyuTech G6.

 

The cold shoe can be left on at all times as it has a very small form factor and does not get in the way.

Hero 7 Black Now Includes A Photo Timer

Published

on

One little talked about feature that is included with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black is the addition of a photo timer. It is a small feature but a very important and welcome addition. In the past, if you wanted to get a shot of yourself you would have to set the GoPro to time-lapse mode, grab some frames and then choose the one you wanted. With the addition of voice commands with the Hero 5 series, you could shout at the GoPro to take a photo. This worked not to bad, however sometimes in noisy environments it did not always work, not to mention looking foolish in certain situations.

With the Hero 7 Black when in photo mode you will notice a new photo timer icon on the left side of the screen. You can select it and set a delay of either 3 seconds or 10 seconds. After the shutter button is pressed a countdown animation and audible beeps indicate when the photo will be taken. Such a simple but important feature. Watch our video demonstration of the new Hero 7 Black photo timer in action.
