MY FAVORITE GO PRO ACCESSORIES
EVO GO POLE floating extension stick
I learned the hard way that it’s wise to invest in a floaty stick. In February last year, I took my Go Pro for a ride with me into the sunset on a jetski, and poof! it fell straight into the water. The camera may have been waterproof, but I watched helplessly as down in the deep blue see it went. I was heart broken, but there was nothing I could do. I requested the dive master to search for it, but he said it was impossible to recover it.
When a few months after, I finally acquired a GO PRO 4 Silver to replace it, I made it a point to buy an adjustable, transparent floaty stick with it. Go Pole costs Php 2400 in Gopole.com but I got mine at Henry store.
Be warned: Previously, I was using a cheap Go Pro extension and a Go Pro mount. The extension just snapped in the middle of the ride, thus dropping my precious camera into the depths of oblivion. This time around, I didn’t mind spending a little more for quality. After all, a Go Pro is expensive, and losing it again would definitely cost me more.
This is another handy tool that is perfect for underwater footage. It is hand held and has a better grip than a Go pole, but it doesn’t take selfies. What I love about the bobber is that it comes with Go Pro mount, so you don’t need to buy any extra accessories for it. You see, I really am afraid of losing my Go Pro again, so I made sure I got all the floating things available in the market. (I also have the back floaty, but I do not use it much . You can buy the bobber for Php 445 in Lazada.com
Extreme SD card
Before buying a memory card, I did a lot of research. I chose the SanDIsk Extreme 64 GB with a speed of 80 MB/s. It has been really reliable and helps me take good videos.
4. Go Pro Surf Mount
This one is perfect for capturing surfing videos. Need I say more? Surf’s up!
Go Pro head strap
The Go Pro head strap is my main accessory during hikes. I use it to record the path during the adventure activities I do. Sometimes, I give it to the person behind me so I am included in the footage. Best of all, it is hassle free and I have my hands free.
My friend bought me mine in South Africa but I saw one also in Pixel Pro in Greenhills.
Anti Fog inserts
I use the anti fog inserts to prevent fogging and change in temperature. It would be a bummer to take lots of footage only to realize later on that it’s all foggy and blurry. Get your anti fog inserts, you’ll find a lot in OLX.com
The basic plate used with sticky tack on the dashboard of the car is perfect for recording road trips. This is simple yet effective.
Go Pro Leash
I always prefer having a leash on my Go Pro so it’s easier to handle, plus it serves as an extra safety measure in securing my Go Pro at all times. I also use the strap to connect it to my carabiner and attach it to my bag. This will really come handy. Luckily, the Go pole comes with this. For the bobber, I had to get myself a separate leash.
Rechargeable Batteries and Wall Charger
I always feel the need to have spare batteries. What good does a Go Pro serve if I am always worried that I would run out of batteries, so I equipped myself with not just one, but two. I also got a wall charger for easy charging. This one has 3 ports — perfect for charging all three batteries at once. You have the option of buying just the batteries, but I just preferred to get the whole set.
You cn get this for Php 1890 at Kimstore.com
Go Pro Accessories I want to Have
Go Pro Dome
It’s been my dream to take photos where the subject is half under water, and half above water; similar to these photos below. I really wish I had one especially since I will be going on an adventure involving several beautiful islands this November – February and it would be good to capture images like these….
I want that KNET KSD6 dome port …….Hmmm…..if only that dome was more affordable.
Go Pro Under water Filters
Trying to take my diving photos to the next level (ahem, as if I have a lot ); but yes, I am trying to dive more often, so I want some filters to help out with those underwater shots.
I guess this works like the head gear, best for scuba diving so I can still use my hands to explore… although, I won’t be in the photo but hey, it’s a good way to record what I’ve seen during the dive.
Taking Photography + Adventures to the next level!
Pin this for later

I’ve been wondering how they take those half water half surface photos! Didn’t know you needed a dome for that. I’m actually looking into buying a filter too so maybe I should start looking for a dome as well!
I know what you mean. I did try to do the half submerging the go pro into the water but it didn’t work. Apparently its a dome that could capture it. I really want one ☺
I envy all the people being in possession of a go pro. I really want one!
Its not too late to get one ☺
I’m obsessed with my GoPro! The best purchase that I’ve made in a long time.
I have to agree with you on that. It’s also easy go bring around. I was so sad when my first one fell into the ocean.
I’m in the market for a camera and have been looking at the Go Pro because of its versatility. If I take the plunge (no pun intended!), I’ll definitely refer back to this post to purchase some awesome accessories. Thanks for the info!
Glad to be of help Jackie 🙂
I have a Go Pro Here 4. I absolutely adore it! One of the best investments i have made. I need to get a pole for it though!
It will be worth it ! Plus it’s an extra layer of protection…. as I’ve said my first one fell into the deep blue sea… never to be found. This one gives me hope because it floats. ☺
very cool! I had no idea that’s how they did the half submerged water shots. I think I have something new on my wish list :-))
Stunning effect right? Deff on top of my wishlist too!
The head strap as well as the one for underwater would be on my wishlist! I haven’t had the chance to take pictures/videos underwater, and I would really love to.
Go for it! Tag me in your new photos! Enjoy!
I’m impressed that you have so many cool accessories for your go pro. I’ll have to remember this list for the future.
Well some are still in my wishlist but rooting to complete all very very soon! Thanks for the visti Mindi!
Oh super useful thanks so much! I was trying to take the half in the water half out last weekend and I didn’t know there was an accessory for that, I thought they were taken with a real camera and not the gopro! awesome!
Hahaha my exact same thoughts too!
Wow, I’ve always wanted a Go Pro, for my husband who loves to travel and go beaching. These accessories would be great too! Bookmarked!
Awww so nice of you, appreciate the love! And hope you get one soon as well! 🙂
These accessories are awesome. They would really help you capture amazing photos from your travels but it’s still too expensive. Need to save more to avail one 🙁
A little expensive yes, but definitely worth every centavo 🙂 besides, nothing can substitute capturing those precious memories right?
Whoah! grabe sayang naman ang unang gopro. I don’t have this gadget but at least, when I am planning to acquire one, I would really have to have that floaty stick.
Oo sobrang sayang! But it is what it is, just time to move on! hahaha. Yes definitely a hard lesson learned 🙂
I keep hearing about the GoPro cameras, are they all they are hyped up to be?
Well, so far I have been enjoying it especially since I love being in the water.
Oh wow, that’s a lot of accessories to consider to compliment your Go Pro. I think for now I shall just stick to my waterproof/shockproof Olympus Tough 😉
Hehe yep the great lengths a photo obsessed person goes to huh? Happy travels!
Great round up of accessories! I had never thought about a floaty stick, but it makes so much sense! I was so paranoid about dropping the GoPro when we were kayaking in Dubrovnik, and a floaty stick or bobber would have saved me the stress. And I am obsessed with the half-in/half-out water shots too!
Now if only i’ve thought about the floaty stick ahead then i wouldn’t have lost the first one. But hahaha oh well, now we know!
A great list of accessories for the GoPro. Can see them being very handy for the water shots.
Yep, very handy indeed! Thanks for the visit Paula!
I love taking pictures on land like landscape, nature, animals, plants, and anything my digital camera could capture. Underwater picture taking is one thing I would like to go into. This hobby gets more desirable as I see those accessories for a better shots under the water. But I don’t think I could pursue that hobby.
Well if you decide to make that into a hobby, hit me up and tag me on your photos!
Hmm, cool! I have none of these, lol 😉 And I would hate to see my GoPro sink….
Time to load up on all those GoPro accessories then! 🙂
Wow, that’s like a totally cool list of stuff people should prepare to get! And I was just wondering how! Thanks for sharing
You’re very much welcome Tiffany!
Showing this list to my GoPro addict friends! Such a cool gadget! 😀
Haha yep, do them the favor! Thanks Jason!
I got an awesome GoPro accessory kit on Amazon but I need a better selfie stick and I just learned about those lenses for underwater!
Yes, great to invest in a quality selfie stick 🙂 Tag me too in your underwater shots. Happy clicking!
my friend too her go pro and accessories to Ghana and i was so jealous, she came back with some incredible shots! 🙂
Oh. Planning to get a Go Pro your yourself too?
I would love a go pro but i’m not sure what i would use it for. She used it while she was travelling but not any other time
That Gopro Dome is amazing. I tried the half-and-half shot without one and turned out OK, I used the video mode and then downloaded a still shot, too much work. I’ll be getting the dome before my next trip.
Oh, wow thanks for the feedback for the GoPro Dome! Must really get my hands on one then, huh?
I’m in the water a lot so I would get a lot of use out of it.
I still haven’t tried a GoPro, but I’ve been thinking about it. If I do, I’ll come back to this post to get all the scoop!
And.. let me know how that works for you! 🙂
All fab accessories! I would add the “Lume Cube” it actually just went on presale this week and I can’t wait to get my hands on one. It’s a lighting kit which is small cubes to provide light and can be attached to your GoPro extender for better photography and video in the dark. And they’re supposed to be waterproof too 🙂
Oh my, checked it out. They are gorgeous. Now another to add to my wishlist. Thanks for that Meg.
Go Pro is always high on my list. You have doen a great job in compiling the list. Thanks.
You’re very much welcome! 🙂 Tag me if you get one already
We have a selfie stick for our GoPro but not one that floats–it sounds like we need to make an upgrade! And that dome thing, how cool! I always wonder how people get shots like that–thanks for sharing!
Hahaha yep, must definitely do that upgrade soon, better be safe than sorry hahaha
I was always curious about this gadget but never got deep into it due to I don’t really like going outdoors much but definitely a good investment to record memories if I do. Keeping this post on bookmark for possible future reference~
Maybe get one to inspire you to go outdoors? hehe Seriously though, it has many more uses than just outdoor adventures. You’d be surprised 🙂
I own a GoPro too. Guess the must have accessories are depending on the users. Like me, I use it during snorkeling. It is good to have the monopod and remote.
Very true! Well what you need really depends on your use. Happy snorkles, everytime! 🙂
I didn’t know GoPro has other accessories, well maybe because as of this time I’m still dreaming about owning one. What the dome can do is really cool! I’ve always been fascinated by those half water shots.
Pretty cool, huh? 🙂
I am planning to get my own go pro. So this is helpful. I already have the monopod. So the rest are also on list.
Oh the fun you’ll have! Enjoy!
Not my kind of gadgets for I seldom go to beaches or the likes. But I must agree Go Pro is a good brand.
Well, you can use it for any adventure you have. Or even simple documentation of travel memories, GoPro will never disappoint to take quality videos for you, anytime!
Whoa! that’s a bunch of go pro accessories to grab. Now I totally regret of buying a clone one instead of an authentic one. sigh!
I also did the same, of course, to save money, but in the long run… it’s best to make sure that the go pro is safe. Mine fell because the clone, snapped.
I love the Go Pro and dreamed of having one for myself. I will bookmark this for future reference 🙂
I’m using a lightweight Floater hand grip, extra battery, lcd. I also have a wrist holder for GoPro. I get to document my runs with this set.
I was planning to buy a go-pro but I did not realize there were so many side equipment that you have to buy on top of the camera itself! Will have to decide better about this planned purchase.
Great overview of some cool products. We have used go=pro for some awesome motorcycle fun, but would love to branch out and use it on some other travel adventures. thanks for the post.
I want a Go Pro. I asked for one for Christmas this year 🙂
OMG! I wish I can have a go pro as one of my christmas pressie
I am purchasing a new camera at xmas and am looking for accessories to make it an adventure camera so thank you for sharing. That half submerged half visible photo is stunning too.
The fun one could have with this camera. I want one.
I didn’t realize how many Go Pro accessories thee were and I want them all, lol. I’d love to have a Go Pro one day.
Wiw-I can understand why you bought a more expensive thingee so you don’t lose your camera again!! I don’t have a camera anything like this one and I certainly would not attempt to use it in or near water!! Glad you got all the accessories you need!!
We’re in desperate need of some new batteries, ours froze while in Lapland last winter 🙁
I want all of the cameras accessories I love it so much.
This is perfect, my husband and I were talking about buying a Go Pro we love the water and go hiking. Carrying a dslr is just so hassle especially when you know you will be hiking for 6 hours. Im glad I cross to your post now I know what to consider when I buy my first ever Go Pro camera.
I don’t have a Go Pro but wow, these things look awesome. Especially the Octomask. I had no idea there was such a thing, this would be amazing for underwater journeys!
I still need to get a Go Pro!
So many gadgets, half of which I have no idea what to do with them but great to read what is on the market.
Great review on these accessories… thanks!
using a GoPro this summer, really gives me a whole new respect
Looks like a great list of accessories. That bobber one is really interesting.
I love all of these, selfie stick helps me capture beautiful around places when Im in vacation.
Wow, there are so many accessories for these GoPros. My husband’s company gave us one and I didn’t know what to do with it. Now I can dig it out and buy some of your suggestions.
Lucky…. you were given a go pro 😀 There’s really a lot that you can do with it. You just need to get the right accessories to fit your needs.
I never would have even thought of the benefits of having most of these accessories! Awesome!
It was so fun to have this. I always wanted to have this if i have a budget this was a really cool stuff
That’s an amazing list of accessories! I’m sorry you lost your Go Pro in the water like that, that would’ve been so frustrating. Pinning this list asap!
These are cool accessories. I have long wanted a Go Pro. Hopefully, I get one soon.
God love the Bobber. I’ve heard of people who’s entire livelihood is the result of scuba diving in tourist hot spots to find GoPros that have sunk to the bottom of the ocean floor, then cleaning them up and selling them to pawn shops. Keep your gear safe everyone!
i dont have a gopro yet but they do look like lots of fun.
I want the rechargeable batteries to keep my camera ready to take vacation photos.
I had no idea Go Pro had so many accessories! I don’t even have one yet but but I’m going to invest in one very soon.
These are great! I need to take my photography to the next level. I’m going to get some accessories soon!
OMG, I am so jealous as my hubby and I both want a GoPro Camera. I would definitely invest in the floating handle. the picture above is amazing.
Great Christmas presents. On my wish list!!
Lucky person who will be the recipient of these items then 😀
How lucky who ever it is that will receive these gifts then
What awesome GoPro accessories you have! I want a few of em!
Wow, you really have it all together! 🙂
I’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of shows and commercials featuring GoPros – really amazing photos! Thanks for sharing.
Go Pro Camera is worth an investment such as blogs or a video production. I would love to have a mount!
