I use a GoPro 10 to record videos. The GoPro is placed on a car. There's some pretty audible wind noise, esp. when the speed is over 50 or 100 kph. How can I reduce the wind noise as much as possible when recording a video with a GoPro?

I've turned the wind noise removal on on the GoPro settings. tried using the official GoPro protection case and some "windscreen windslayer cover housing frame case", it helps but there's still some wind noise. What else can I do?

I'm aware of How to reduce wind noise from a video? but that's for post-processing the wind noise.

    Is the GoPro mounted externally? What sounds are you trying to capture? One solutions would be a separate mic, closer to your subject - inside the car, in the engine bay etc.

  • @Tetsujin externally mounted indeed. I'm trying to capture the ambient sounds and don't wish to record anyone inside the car. Where could be a good place to place an additional mic and what type of microphones has a good sound quality at 100+ kph? Thanks! Jul 31 at 8:52

    I think you may need an external solution, mic in a 'zeppelin' blimp covered by a 'dead cat' secondary windshield. That's de rigueur for outdoor filming, but idk whether it's good enough for a moving vehicle - that's outside my experience.

As Tetsujin mentioned in the comment, a typical solution is to use an external microphone with a wind shield (aka windscreen or dead cat). One may get a GoPro Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter to connect an external microphone to the GoPro.

Here are the microphone suggestions I've read online:
