GoPro Holiday Gift Guide 2017
The holidays are fast approaching, and between travel, visitors, decorations and all of the other things that come with the season, making time to find gifts for the special people in your life can prove difficult. Thankfully, GoPro is here to make sure you buy our stuff. But seriously, the shopping experience can prove daunting, and so we thought we would guide you in the right direction for the GoPro user in your life. We can’t help you with the awkward family photos or Uncle Dwayne’s insistence on double-dipping in the guacamole, but we can guide you in the right direction for GoPro mounts and accessories.
For the salt-water splasher…
Surfboard Mount $19.99
Most surfers don’t have just one board; they have a quiver that takes up half the garage, shed or back patio. And with each new addition, a new GoPro mount has to be secured to prove just how different each board performs. Heck, it’ll do the trick for surfboards, kayaks, SUPs, boat decks and all the other gear forbidding a car from being parked in the garage. It also includes an FCS compatible male plug to mount your GoPro using an FCS center fin socket, too.
For those living that 2-Wheel Life…
Sure, that helmet-mounted POV action is immersive, but maybe the cyclist or moto enthusiast in your life needs a few new angles to spice it up; variety is the spice of life, of course.
With this mount, they can attach their GoPro to handlebars, seatposts, ski poles and more. The hinged, non-slip design easily clamps to different mounting locations or secures to a pole or pipe to create a handheld boom, and the base features 360° rotation to help achieve the perfect angle for every shot. Fits 0.35 to 1.4in (9 to 35mm) diameter tubes.
The photog on the go…
Small enough to go in your pocket, clutch or purse, Shorty expands your GoPro’s potential to dynamically capture moments, without adding to your cargo load. Plus, it is all new for 2017.
Toss it in your pocket on your way out the door, and you’ll have the perfect little partner to position your camera and get the best shot. Selfies: nailed. Group shots: handled. Time lapses: no problem. Long exposures: ideal.
For those who never leave home without it…
The 3-Way is the ultimate accessory for the GoPro shooter in your life. The clever name derives from its three main use-cases: a camera grip, extension arm or tripod. The folding arm is perfect for POV or follow-cam footage, and makes it easy to capture selfies without the mount appearing in the shot. When detached from the arm, the handle doubles as a camera grip. And, ingeniously, stored inside the handle is a lightweight, mini tripod that can be removed and used on its own or combined with the handle. Can life get better? We submit that it cannot.
The adventurer and aspiring cinematographer…
The Seeker backpack has quickly become a favorite amongst GoPro fans, casual shooters and active adventurists alike. And while its thoughtful design and efficient storage are enough to make it a standout in the backpack market, it truly sets itself apart because it is as much a mount accessory as it is a pack. Featuring three mounting points offering their own unique perspective, the Seeker opens the body up to more angles and views all while maintaining a comfort level as it evenly distributes your belongings that are along for the ride. Cameras, memory cards, and small items are right at your immediate reach, and the main compartment will accommodate a complete Karma system, or simply just the essentials for a day trip.
The guy/gal who shoots everything, and needs to step up the stability…
Karma Grip $299.99
Want shoot like Spielberg, or at least watch footage that looks like it was filmed by a Hollywood production crew? Karma Grip will take GoPro video to a whole new stratosphere. It’s not even fair. One of the most exciting product to come from the GoPro brand (other than the cameras) this past year, Karma Grip is the ultimate companion for the die-hard videographer. Run, jump, hike, bike...Karma Grip will keep your shot steady and your mind blown. Oh, and it mounts to just about anything. Need we say more? Okay, then: Karma Grip and your GoPro work together as one. Simply connect your GoPro, turn on the grip and go. The two can charge at the same time, and you can offload your footage without un-mounting your camera.
