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!
