Wind noise

Has anyone arrived at a simple solution for reducing, or eliminating, wind noise during video shooting on the A3400 or any of the small point-and-shoot cameras with the built-in mikes?

Re: Wind noise

Unfortunately there isn't much you can do with the PowerShot A3400 series of cameras and the sound quality. Some of the cameras have a wind filter in the menu, but it does not appear that you have that option. Nor do you have a mic jack for an external microphone. You will have to be very wary of wind or just record indoors where you can have better control of unwanted noise.

Re: Wind noise

Thank you Steve.  I may experiment with some filter ideas, but you are correct.  It will be a challenge for outdoor windy days.

Re: Wind noise

How about creating your own "wind muff" by attaching cotton balls to the tiny internal mic's somehow??

I got one of these on my SX50: http://www.willhutchinson.co.uk/micromuff/micromuff-original.html

 

You might get an idea?

Re: Wind noise

Charleyhorse and Grazie-- good ideas from both of you.  THANKS!!  It's got me thinking.  The challenge is that the mic opening is soooo small, as is the whole camera, but I think I can come up with something.
