2014 Gear Of The Year: GoPro 3-Way Mount
When you finally get time away from the city to enjoy the great outdoors, you want to capture as many memories as you can. You need a camera up to the challenge of handling all the harsh elements of the outdoors. GoPro is the prefect solution for an outdoor, versatile camera. Want to capture underwater footage? Done. Need to film yourself flying down a mountainside? You got it. But, anyone who has used a GoPro knows that the camera is only as good as the accessories you have.
GoPro makes countless accessories to deck out your versatile camera, and the GoPro 3-Way mount really ups the game. It combines three of the most used accessories in to one “capture any footage you can think of” piece of gear.
Basically, every aspect of the GoPro 3-Way Mount is unique. This ultra-versatile mount can be used three main ways: as a camera grip, extension arm or tripod. The folding arm is perfect for point-of-view shooting or follow-cam footage. The folding arm also makes capturing selfies easy without the mount appearing in the shot. The mount is a perfect way to show off the beautiful surroundings while you’re out hiking or kayaking. When detached from the arm, the handle doubles as a camera grip. However, the best feature is stored inside the handle grip. Simply unscrew the cap at the bottom of the handle and pull out a lightweight, mini tripod that can be used on its own or combined with the handle. The stand-alone mount is better for uneven surfaces outdoors. The Go Pro 3-Way Mount expands to 20 inches and collapses to 7.5 inches to fit into any camp box.
