I have the same issue with my action cam. The mic is okay if I am doing an interview style head shot, but pretty useless if pointing away from me. My camera doesnt accept an external mic.

Been thinking about going the digital recorder route. My plan is to put it in a waterproof bag in the front vhf pouch of my PFD to allow me to record hands free.

For me, I am not worried about syncing as I would still use the camera mic for the close up head shots, which I would really like to do fewer of any way.

This is the unit I am looking at.
