Transform your sound recording with this lightweight portable microphone worth £349/$399

You can’t beat a GoPro camera for filming in action situations. Small and light, they’re designed to go in the most awkward of spaces. As a partner to a bigger filmmaking camera or even as a main camera in its own right, a GoPro is a fantastic tool – a piece of kit that can be found in many a professional kitbag.

What they’re not designed for, however, is to deliver pro-quality on-board audio, and to achieve a sound track that might be good enough to accompany your production you’ll need to lend a helping hand. This is where Sennheiser’s clever and compact MKE 2 elements, high-quality waterpoof action mic comes into its own. You just connect it and the Sennheiser custom-made BacPac Backdoor to your GoPro HERO4 and you’re good to go. Since it connects seamlessly to the GoPro’s original housing you have a complete and waterproof solution in your hands, one that’s capable of going anywhere the camera can.

Planning to film in the sea, or a snowboarding session up in the mountains? Not a problem, since the MKE 2 elements is as tough as they come and can cope amongst the waves, thanks to its ability to handle up to one bar of pressure. Fixing your GoPro HERO4 to the side of a car or a biker’s helmet for pulsating footage that’s right in the heart of the action? Go ahead: the MKE 2 elements is up for the ride and built to last.

One lucky Pro Moviemaker reader will win their very own Sennheiser MKE 2 elements action mic for GoPro HERO4 worth £179.99/$199.95. All that stands between the potential winner and the prize is the answer to the question below. Good luck everyone!

Question: How many bars of pressure can the MKE 2 take?
