I bought a SJ7000 action camera for my son. It is s cheap gopro clone. Whilst the video is ok the sound volume is to low to be useful even out of the case.I want a fairly robust camera that is simple to use but will also record conversation at a reasonable level. Any ideas please

Only thing I can add is that I bought an SJ7000 recently to take skiing at New Year. For just over £30 I could stick it on my helmet and not be bothered if I lost it or it got smashed to smithereens - I'd have been a bit more concerned about treating a £200+ GoPro in the same way!

And yes, in it's waterproof case at least, the sound is poor. (And in hindsight, I'd expect that in its case - I haven't really tested it out of the case yet.) But I've just been comparing footage taken with my cheapie camera and elder daughter's genuine GoPro (that I probably paid for too!) from the same trip. Certainly the sound is better on hers, which was also in a waterproof case, but not dramatically better...

Have you thought about an external mic mod, this one is for the 4000 but yours must be similar?

Mobius C2, for about £60 any thing less may be a fake.Good sound as standard.Small and can be used on aircraft, helmet or as dashcam ect.
