DIY Mic Fix

I love(d) the Canon G7X Mark II.

Tons of features plus small enough to carry anywhere.

What I’m not crazy about is there’s no way to plug in an external mic which can be a problem especially if it’s really noisy.

So, I had an idea, a DIY Mic Fix that I show you in this video including a before and after audio test.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried something like this and any other audio hacks, especially for the G7X Mark II.

Here are the links if you want to check out the Rycote mic covers or my gear.
