PNY Action Grip

  • RRP: £14.99

One grievance of many first-time GoPro buyers is that they don’t come with a grip to secure to for quickly snapping footage. While you can hold the little camera in your hand, footage comes out better with a simple handle attachment.

Enter the PNY Action Grip. A neat, affordable grip that you slide any GoPro onto using the attachment in the box, it also has a trick up its sleeve – the handle is hollow and airtight so can float, or you can fill it with water to establish buoyancy for underwater filming. Or, you can stick your keys in it. The handle is quite fat, but it’s quite similar to the official GoPro one

GoPro Jaws Flex Clamp Mount

  • RRP: £49.99

This official accessory is compatible with all GoPro models and is a bit like Joby’s popular flexible mounts http://amzn.to/2ku6QwB for SLR cameras. Neat quick-release attachments mean you can quickly clip your camera to a pole or branch to capture the action. 

A simple, easy to use accessory that will improve your shooting options.

GoPro Seeker backpack

  • RRP: £99.99, US$169.99

This is an accessory for the GoPro owner who has everything – as in all the accessories already. This official backpack holds mounts, memory cards, the chest mount, shoulder mounts and up to five cameras. 

We aren’t really sure who exactly has five GoPros but at least you have the option. It also takes a water bladder up to two litres for hydration on the go.

GoPro chest harness

  • RRP: £39.99, US$39.99

The inventively named ‘Chesty’ chest harness is what you’d expect, with all the usual GoPro brand quality. 

Perfect for cycling, skiing, canoeing and more, it positions the camera best for when you want a shot lower than head height. 

It’s fully adjustable and works with every GoPro camera. It’s a quick and affordable way to capture some exhilarating trail footage.

AFUNTA head strap

  • RRP: £4.99, US$9.99

Cheap, simple and great for capturing the best moments of your day with a big ol’ camera strapped to your head. 

In stock and for under a fiver on Amazon, this is a good way to save cash while still getting the best out of your GoPro.

Here is our extensive GoPro buying guide.

GoPro helmet front mount

  • RRP: £34.99, US$34.99

This is one of the best GoPro accessories for climbers, attaching as it can to the front of a helmet. It’s far preferable to a chest strap, keeping you free and easy to move.

You can adjust the mount to point in any direction, including right at your own face, to capture the strain and pain of making it up that tricky route. The mount attaches adhesively, so make sure you put it on your most used helmet.
