The Essential GoPro Accessories You Need to Own – Now!

A GoPro is a mainstay piece of equipment in the camera bags of every adventure and travel photographer and videographer. But you won’t get nearly as much out of your GoPro without the incredible accessories designed to enhance its purpose.

There are so many GoPro accessories out there, from both GoPro and third-party brands, that it’s difficult to know where to even start.

From GoPro mounts to GoPro batteries, we’ve outlined what we believe to be the best GoPro accessories you can include in your kit.

GoPro 3-Way

The GoPro 3-Way is such a handy little device to have that it doesn’t make sense to exclude it from your GoPro bag!

This multifunctional device serves as a simple handle, an extendable arm (from about 19cm to almost 74cm), and a tripod. It’s lightweight and compact enough for frequent travellers.

GoPro Headstrap Mount

If you love mountain biking, climbing, base jumping, and any other extreme adventures, the headstrap mount was made for you.

The GoPro Headstrap Mount is designed to fit over your head or helmet, with an easy adjustment strap that keeps it firmly in place. It works best combined with a GoPro QuikClip so it can be attached to caps as well.

Check out the GoPro Headstrap Mount and QuikClip combo.

Spare Batteries

It’s a photographer or videographer’s worst nightmare to set out for a day of shooting only to be stalled by a dead battery.

Spare GoPro batteries are a must! Pack multiple spares – each battery should have a life of two hours, depending on the ambient temperature. Investing in a dual battery charger means you can charge two batteries at a time, making your life a lot easier.

GoPro Super Suit Waterproof Housing

The latest models of the GoPro come with a degree of native waterproof housing, but the Super Suit extends the depth from 10m to 60m. It’s a necessity for anybody who loves to capture scenes from deep diving.

The Super Suit offers a great fit and comes with a flat glass lens so your image sharpness isn’t compromised. It’s perfect to use outside water too, offering excellent protection against dust and debris. Just be sure to check that it’s compatible with your GoPro model.

GoPro Floaty

This is a must-have if you’re expecting to use your GoPro around water. The GoPro does NOT FLOAT!

Save yourself a lot of hassle by attaching the GoPro Floaty to the back of your camera’s waterproof housing. Much like the name suggests, the Floaty acts as a buoy and is easy to spot, thanks to its bright orange colour.

GoPole Scenelapse

A popular technique for videographers is to include a time-lapse pan of their surroundings. GoPro is made for this style of shooting, thanks to its wide-angle lens and in-built intervalometer.

You can mount your GoPro to the GoPole Scenelapse, wind up the unit, and it will rotate 360 degrees in an hour while your GoPro captures photos and footage.

The GoPole Scenelapse is fully mechanical, meaning you won’t have to worry about battery life. It also comes with a standard tripod screw underneath it so it can be attached to tripods big and small.

GoPro Chesty

The Chesty provides perspectives from a lower angle to capture your hands, the handlebars, or your oar.

This accessory is lightweight, fully adjustable for adults, and easy to get on and off with a quick-release buckle.

Imagine if you could capture footage and stills of a day in the life of your beloved furball. The GoPro Fetch is a comfy, breathable harness you can fit on your dog to get great shots from your pet’s perspective. You can mount your GoPro on the back or the chest.

The GoPro Fetch is compatible with all camera models and is designed to fit dogs between 7kg and 55kg. It’s also machine-washable should your dog decide to go racing through mud or rolling in something unpleasant (as dogs are apt to do).

At the end of the day, it’s important to consider what you want to get out of your GoPro. Think about the kinds of activities you’d like to capture and use that as a starting point to prioritise the GoPro accessories you buy.
