Go Pro Hero Sound Comparison
Sound Improvements on the Go Pro Hero 3?
For this Go Pro Hero sound comparison, I used the HD Hero 2 and 3. The Go Pro HD Hero 2 is (was) a favourite of mine and I have used it on many occasions. However, the sound quality was extremely poor from the built-in microphone and the low light quality was "ok".
But nothing amazing.
So, when I received the Go Pro HD Hero 3, I wanted to test both low light footage and sound quality. I hoped that the sound may be usable for "ad-hoc" filming at the drop of a hat. Well, the difference was quite remarkable but how did they compare?
I have made a short video below where both cameras are "naked" and out of their housings. The video was shot in a dark garage with just one, relatively low light on me with a black background.
