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

Published

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.
