    GoPro 5MP Wide - Where's the mic?

    I have the same lousy audio as everyone else (even on HI), so I thought I'd mod the plastic case it sits in to see if I can make it any better. I don't ride in the rain with it, so I'm not worried about it losing its waterproof abilities.

    The question I have is where's the mic? I see three tiny holes on top of the camera body, and then three slightly smaller ones on the back. Which is the mic, and what is the other?

    Mic is on top, but it's recommended to drill a hole on the back upper left corner on the case where there's a round marking. I obviously looked into, but never did it.

    Cool, thanks for the link. I drilled a 5/32 hole in it for now, but I can always go bigger. I also have 4 layers of electrical tape on the back of the camera, so the foam on the door will hold it in place even tighter than before.
