Thanks, love a good vid. Next portion is not a knock on your vid's, they were enjoyed. Wind buffeting blows (pun intended), but it can be reduced.

Vid cams automatic gain system cannot distinguish between the sound of the wind and the sounds you want. In fact most cams that record adjust when a gust of wind hits the mike, the system will drop your levels to compensate for the loud sound of the wind. As a result, your levels will rise and fall at the whim of the wind, and the sounds you want will be lost to in wind noise.

Solution - Sock it, Block it or Move! If you smoke sometimes a empty pack can fit over the mic and than put a sock over to secure. Sock's can be bought at Radio shack for under $4. The cig pack act as a reflector and that should reduce the buffeting, so engines are the loudest noise to be adjusted for!!!!!Cheers.....
