A GoPro is one of the best investments you can make for your travels! Whether you’re hiking, biking, or climbing- this little camera will never let you down. But what accessories should you have to really take advantage of all it has to offer? Accessories are something that can make an action camera so much better. But, there are so many of them so getting the most suitable one may be more complicated than you can imagine. In this blog post, we will introduce 6 GoPro accessories which can truly make the action camera more useful.
Types of Accessories to Consider
Action Cam Tripod
Action cam tripod is perfect for capturing stable videos and time lapses. I love this little tripod because it’s small and lightweight, so you don’t have to worry about lugging a big heavy piece of equipment around with you on your adventures! It also has an adjustable pivot head that allows the camera to be mounted in any position needed.
This is great if you want to capture photos without having your hand move the whole way through – no more shaky pictures! You can use it pretty much anywhere too; since it doesn’t need a surface or anything like that, just throw out some rocks under your feet.
Floating Hand Grip
Floating Hand Grip is perfect for any adventure seeker who’s looking to capture their memories from a different perspective.
The floating hand grip is great because you can use the wrist strap or arm strap as well, and it floats! So if your camera goes under water (or falls off of a cliff) then this will keep it safe until you retrieve it – no more worrying about taking that plunge with your GoPro too! The wrist strap also has an adhesive mount on the inside so that you can stick it anywhere there isn’t much movement; think trees, rocks, etc. This way the camera won’t move around when you’re trying to film something stationary like a sunset or mountain view!
This little accessory gives new meaning to “beach bod” with a mount for your GoPro that you can stick on the back of your hand, wrist or arm. This way as you’re filming yourself surfing, biking or even just running around town – it will always be right there!
A selfie mirror is perfect when capturing extreme perspectives because it’s small enough to clip onto a Go Pro without worrying about getting in pictures/videos but big enough so the subject doesn’t need to worry about looking into their phone screen and trying to capture themselves from all angles. These come in two different types: self-standing mirrors and handheld mirrors; whichever works best for what you’re doing at the time.
This one might seem like more of an accessory than others on this list, but I think that a selfie stick is one of the most important GoPro accessories out there. They might not be super portable or lightweight, but when you’re trying to capture yourself and your friends while having fun on vacation it becomes a non-issue.
A selfie stick can turn an average snap into a really great memory – use it in tandem with other iPhone accessories like cases, lenses, etc.; also perfect for extreme angles!
The head strap is great for selfies or just capturing your day-to-day activity to share with friends and family; it’s comfortable, keeps the GoPro off of your hands which can be hard on them after a long time holding onto the camera, and prevents accidental drops! It also helps you get more creative angles than what you would normally think to capture.
Extra batteries are an absolute must-have since it’s so easy to run out of power while recording when there aren’t any outlets around – they’re also perfect for long trips or excursions where getting back might take longer than expected. It’s best not just to buy one extra battery but instead two or three as well; this way, even if one runs out, you’ll still have spares available. It helps to have your GoPro charged and ready to go, which can be a problem if you’re filming in the middle of nowhere. A good battery pack is perfect for on-the-go charging needs and will help to ensure that you never miss capturing those great moments because your camera was dead!
They’re not the prettiest accessory, but they are one of the most important! You want to keep your camera screen nice and safe from scratches – it’s a lot easier to do that before you start shooting than afterward. One option is an LCD protector like this one by GoPro; it clips on easily for protection against dust and dirt as well.
The frame might be considered more of a necessity rather than an accessory because without them you can’t put any pictures or videos onto anything else besides your computer (if you have access)! If you need something small enough for travel, check out these frames with lenses by Polar Pro made specifically for GoPros since regular-sized ones won’t fit correctly.
