The Best of GoPro: Must-Have Products for the Adventurer
Having a GoPro revolutionises the type of action photography you can create. But if you’re the adventurous type, you’re going to get a lot more out of your nifty gadget if you’ve got a few extra accessories to enhance its function and performance.
GoPro produces a lot of quality add-ons for its series of action cameras, so it’s understandable you may be overwhelmed with options. We’ve stepped in to help you narrow down to an elite few. Here is our handpicked selection of GoPro’s best accessories to enhance your experience:
GoPro Jaws Flex Clamp Mount
GoPro’s basic tension clamp offers a lot more flexibility than many competitors on the market. It clamps to anything round or flat with a diameter between 0.6 cm and 5 cm. That includes skateboards, bicycle handle bars, a tree branch or street sign – the options are limitless.
The GoPro Jaws Flex Clamp Mount also comes with an optional adjustable neck that helps you reposition the camera easily, quickly and securely – a must for on-the-go photography.
GoPro Head Strap
One of GoPro’s greatest advantages is its lightweight and compact size. It means you can use the camera in all manner of ways, including hands-free. With a GoPro head strap, you mount your camera on your head for the perfect first-person perspective, leaving your hands free to, say, kayak or steer bicycle handlebars.
The head strap mount is compatible with every GoPro camera out there – and with the adjustable strap, it suits every head size as well. It’s a great alternative to the front helmet mount, since you can use it with a helmet, but remove the mount when you’d rather ride camera-free.
GoPro Dual Hero System
Moving away from mounts for a moment, GoPro has shown it can add an extra edge to action recording with the GoPro Dual Hero System. After all, why record with one GoPro when you can do it with two?
With the Dual Hero tandem housing system, you no longer have to debate whether to set your GoPro to video or photography; it hooks up two GoPros to record both mediums at once. You can even take your footage to the next level with GoPro’s nifty software which converts your footage to 3D.
GoPro Chest Mount Harness
One of Camera House’s most popular GoPro accessories to date is the GoPro Chest Mount Harness. This harness offers an intriguing point of view from the middle of your chest. Because it can focus on your legs, it’s popular for any kind of extreme sport situation, from skiing to mountain biking to tightrope walking, if that’s your thing.
The streamlined harness can be adjusted to fit around any body size, with additional room for a heavy snow jacket if necessary. And because your camera is securely stowed on your chest, your hands are free to be fully devoted to the task at hand. As a bonus, the harness also comes in a kid’s size.
If you can’t make up your mind on which mount is best – and as you can see, there are a lot of options out there – this versatile 3-Way has been designed just for you. It offers maximum flexibility, allowing you to use the mount as a camera grip, extension arm, or tripod. The extension arm can be folded so you can capture follow-cam or point-of-view footage, or extended for those ever-popular selfies. But the lightweight, miniature tripod is even more impressive, fitted cleverly inside the extension arm handle.
GoPro Battery BacPac
The GoPro camera makes your photography and filming options seem limitless … until the battery starts to falter. Thankfully, there’s now an accessory that helps extend the life of your GoPro: the Battery BacPac. This removable battery pack attaches itself to your GoPro and will extend the life of your camera so you can film to your heart’s content without worrying when the battery will die.
GoPro Anti-Fog Inserts
In our books, this is an essential accessory. They don’t look like much, but you will be forever grateful to these anti-fog inserts (which come in packs of 12) when they save your photos from that dulled look that inevitably comes when your lens fogs up in cold or humid weather or around water.
So who said you can’t enjoy some fast-paced adventure AND capture the moment at the same time? The GoPro camera goes a long way in helping your record your favourite action memories hands-free – but it’s GoPro’s range of quality accessories that really enables you to film those moments without hampering your style.
