Keep your cables fully connected to the camera at all times to minimize constant disconnecting and reconnecting, which can cause wear and tear on the ports.
TWO) LOCK IN THEM CABLES
Use a cable lock, whether it’s a cheap one or a fancy custom-made version. Make sure to always use one.
THREE) GET THE BOOM!
Avoid using the wind reduction feature as it can make your audio sound more ‘tingy’ and reduce the overall sound quality, including the boomy effect. Check how to change this setting in our user guide!
FOUR) LET THERE BE LIGHT!
Switch to 30FPS to increase brightness in low-light conditions. This is especially useful when it becomes dark outside or if you expect to be in a dark indoor area for an extended period. Check how to change this setting in our user guide!
FIVE) STAY CHARGED
When starting up your IRL backpack (encoder + Sony action cam) and turning on your camera, always check if the charging indicator is displayed below the battery life (bottom right). If you have the camera connected to a power bank and the indicator is not showing, try pressing the power button on the power bank to force it to charge.
SIX) REDUCE THE WHAM!
Use a sound muff to reduce unwanted annoying sounds such as hard winds. However you want to call it or whatever material you can find. I use two different kinds: one that is more expensive but provides greater noise reduction due to its larger size, and another that is less expensive but still effectively reduces noise despite its smaller size.
Other things to know not really tips but what and where the ports are.
