GoPro’s compact design and point-and-shoot features makes it the preferred device when it comes to cameras. Rain or shine, on land, underwater or snow, the camera’s versatility is undeniable. For those who want to maximize the device’s features, they should go beyond the basic accessories that come with the cam. To get the most out of it, here are some must have accessories that everyone should get especially for professionals who want to get the most out of their GoPros.
GoPro Straps/GoPro Belts
Aside from the helmet mount that comes with the cam, professionals who want to get that professional look should aim to add straps or belts to their GoPro accessory must-have list. GoPro straps can be used to attach the remote control of the cam to your neck or wrist making it easier to capture the moment without any trouble. Wrist straps and adjustable body strap belts are perfect for doing POV videos. Straps can also be used to attach the cam to any vented helmet to hold the device steady especially during trekking or extreme sports activities.
Dive Housing Case
For professional divers or deep-sea diving enthusiasts, a dive housing case is a must have. Dive housing cases are made of waterproof materials preventing any damage to the camera while still being able to capture deep-sea activities clearly. The waterproof feature can withstand up to 60m of sea level ensuring divers to catch crisp underwater activities.
For professional photographers who love to do aerial shots, quadcopters are essential. These copters are mounted with the GoPro allowing impressive aerial footage. This is highly recommended for sky divers or even photographers who want to add a touch of class and aerial footage to their videos or photos. Some are also equipped with a built-in GPS like the Phantom quadcopter allowing users to suspend the copter in a stationary position in the air to record or film scenes.
If you need just one mount, then the Jaw flex clamp is your best bet. The clamp itself has a reach of about.6cm up to 5cm making it easier to attach the clamp to any surface even with another mount. The neck is also adjustable which is ideal for those who want to add height or decrease it.
These are just some of the essentials that every professional needs to add to their GoPro kit. There are some other accessories out there, but having these four would make any professional photographer’s life easier.
