With each new model, GoPro adds innovative features that make it easier to capture amazing video footage in almost any scenario. But to take advantage of all those features, you will also need certain accessories. With these items, you can mount your GoPro to almost anything and take it anywhere to get the shot you want. From selfie sticks to dog harnesses, here are the 25 best accessories for the current line of GoPro cameras, covering a wide assortment of activities, from action sports to water sports to kids and pets and almost everything in between.
While many inexpensive GoPro knockoffs include dozens of various types of mounts with their cameras, GoPro does not. Neewer has just the solution, with its 15-piece accessory kit, which provides an assortment of standard and conversion mounts to make it easy to attach the camera to a variety of surfaces.
You'll need some way to store and transport all these GoPro accessories. AmazonBasics' carrying case can hold two GoPros, miscellaneous mounts, a smart remote, filters and cables, all for $16 — you can't go wrong. If you have less gear, you might prefer the small or extra small versions.
Almost more important than the GoPro's charger is an extra battery to keep the action rolling. Providing roughly 2 hours of battery life (temperature conditions permitting), an extra battery or two — maybe even three — is important to have on hand if you plan on shooting all day.
Ask any underwater videographer to show you their gear, and somewhere in there will be a set of color-correcting filters. If you like recording your dive sessions, using Kula Co's 3-pack scuba filters is almost a must to reduce the amount of blue light in your footage. A safety tether on these filters ensures that if the worst happens, you won't lose them altogether.
