SmartWaterI think if you need a gimbal depends on how steady you are without it, just gonna have to test!
in terms of mic I'd look into gimbal gods setup. I think gopro might make a microphone now, but theres a chance its only usable on the newer models?
Ok. I did a little research. GoPro has a mic now. There is one that works with the hero 8 but it is different than the one for the hero 9.
Gimbal God uses both the gopro mic and this mic but he was using this mic on his RED camera. This mic's audio does seem waaaay better when they are compared and it's only 20 bucks more.
comparison where he uses each mic:
1. Has anyone ever used either of these mics and how did you like them?
2. Would the hennheiser MKE200 work with a gopro? It seems like it works with an iphone and most DSLR cameras.
