How To Fix An Annoying Design Flaw (Canon Powershot S120)

This happens to all of us, sooner or later: we bought new gear and there is something that’s totally wrong placed, or doesn’t really make sense, or can’t be used as supposed.

In this case the camera is the Canon Powershot S120, a well-performing, WiFi-enabled compact camera with good video capabilities. But there is a problem Casey Neistat couldn’t live with, and for a good reason: the microphones of the S120 are placed on top of the camera, where you spontaneously and normally place your fingers when holding the camera (see pic below). Result: bad sound quality since the mics are covered.

Watch Casey Neistat‘s ingenious solution to tackle the issue in the video above.
