I also recommend an extra small microphone which is Saramonics SR-XM1. Use this microphone when you don’t feel comfortable with Rode Micro which is much bigger in size. Saramonics SR-XM1 is easily attached to any camera and it is compact for motovlogging.

Note:- if you are uncomfortable with a big microphone especially in public areas, then you should go for Rode Wireless Go I like it as it is more discrete and delivers good audio.

3. Best GoPro Hero Action Cameras for Motovlogging

Best action camera for Motovlogging, I recommend GoPro Hero 7 Black. and I also use GoPro Hero 8 Black but I personally realized GoPro Hero 8 has a drawback. When you use the microphone, you will have to remove the battery door then it is not waterproof anymore, and It may also cause the battery to fall off. Therefore, GoPro 8 Black is not a suitable selection for moto vlogging, making, I recommend you GoPro 7 Black is the best for Motovlogging

9. Use of Best ND Filters during Motovlogging

What is the main purpose of a neutral density filter? The ND filter permits photographic artists to shoot their wide-opening focal points in splendid light without overexposing. This permits shallow depth of field and particular center impacts while under lighting conditions that surpass the screen speed abilities of the camera.

I advise you use the following ND filters for your camera.

  1. PolarPro GoPro Hero 5.6,7 Black
  2. PolarPro DJI Mavic 2 Pro
  3. Tiffen 82HTND6 82MM
