I just picked up a GoPro HERO 7 Black not that long ago, and after taking it on a recent trip to Death Valley, I'm all in on the action camera thing.
I had so much fun shooting video with this thing - particularly the TimeWarp feature.
Anyway, in the weeks since I got my new GoPro, I've been testing out some accessories for it and wanted to share my thoughts on the to p10 GoPro accessories I've been able to get my hands on thus far.
Let's get started!

Top GoPro Accessories: RODE VideoMicro ($59.00)
This tiny shotgun microphone is perfect for a GoPro.
It's compact and lightweight, but audio quality isn't sacrificed. In fact, it has a high-quality cardioid condenser mic capsule so you can get clear, crisp audio.
And since it's a directional mic, it minimizes sounds from the periphery so your video has focused audio from the subject.
Add to that a thermoplastic suspension structure for minimizing vibrations as you adventure around with your GoPro, and you have the ideal audio companion for the best adventura camera on the market!
Top GoPro Accessories: RODE WS9 Windshield ($25.00)
There's no point in investing in a better microphone if all it picks up is the sound of the wind rushing by...
The WS9 is inexpensive, but packs a solid punch for ensuring you get the best quality audio.
With an open-cell foam enclosure covered with synthetic fur, this sucker does its job to perfection. After all, that's why it's one of my picks for the best GoPro accessories on the market today.
Top GoPro Accessories: Ulanzi V2 Vlog Protective Housing Case ($15.95)
This case is a must for having a microphone with your GoPro.
Not only does this case have a cold-shoe mount for the mic, but it also has a spot to hold the 3.5mm microphone adapter nicely tucked directly beneath the GoPro.
This rig is compatible with GoPro HERO 7, 6, and 5, and you can mount the case in a number of different ways, from your bike helmet to a chest belt to a monopod or selfie stick.
It's lightweight, portable, and fits the GoPro like a glove, so you don't have to worry about a clunky case getting in the way of your fun.
Top GoPro Accessories: GoPro Pro 3.5mm Microphone Adapter ($49.99)
In order to use an external mic with a GoPro, you need one of these things.
Personally, I find it really annoying that you need to shell out $50 bucks for one of these when it would have been better for GoPro just to include the 3.5mm mic port to start with!
But..good luck finding one of these for $50, as they have been out of stock for some time. I had to buy mine from someone on eBay for $106. Yikes!
Top GoPro Accessories: Andycine Mini Hot-Shoe Stand ($36.99)
If you have hot-shoe accessories you want to add to your GoPro, this little stand is a must-have.
Use it to mount a mic, LED lights, flash, or camera monitor to your GoPro...you name it!
It offers a 176-degree viewing angle with a base that rotates 360-degrees for optimal functionality.
Making adjustments is simple with 3 M3 knots and an Allen key to get things just how you want them.
Additionally, since the GoPro has such a wide-angle of view, you need to get your microphone or other accessories out of the way.
This rig puts more distance between your accessories and the GoPro to get them out of frame.
Top GoPro Accessories: Litra Torch LitraPro ($220.00)
Yes, the Litra Torch LitraPro is one of the more expensive GoPro accessories on this list, but it is also far and away one of the best GoPro accessories you can get your hands on...
That's because the GoPro has never been good in low-light situations. If you'll be filming without much light, you absolutely must have a light like this.
Just get a load of these specs:
So, yeah, the LitraPro is a powerhouse despite being so small. But, hey, that small size is precisely what makes it an ideal companion for a GoPro.
This thing puts out so much light, and the fact that it's adjustable from 3000K to 6000K should not be overlooked.
I did a full review on this rig a few weeks ago. Check it out here to see why this is the best light money can buy!
Top GoPro Accessories: HandlePod 3-Axis Action Cam Mount ($29.95)
You might have never heard of the HandlePod 3-Axis Action Camera Mount, but I have to tell you it's one of my favorite GoPro Accessories for a couple of reasons.
For starters, it's like a Swiss Army Knife for action cameras. With its 3-axis configuration, I can use it as a grip, as a stand, and even mount it to things like a bicycle or a tree. I can hold onto it in from of me for vlogging, set it atop my desk (as shown above)...you name it!
Secondly, it's inexpensive - about $20.00 less than my beloved GorillaPod.
So, not only is the HandlePod more versatile, it's also far less expensive. What's not to like about that?!
Top GoPro Accessories: Joby GorillaPod 3k ($49.88)
Another must-have GoPro accessory is the Joby GorillaPod 3K.
This multi-use tripod can support just about any device that weighs less than 6.6 pounds, so if you have a light, microphone, or other accessory, or if you want to use it to support the GoPro itself, this mini tripod is up to the task.
It comes with a Ball Head 3K with a separate pan joint so you can position the camera or accessory just how you need or like. You can also use the GorillaPod 3K as a grip or wrap its legs around sturdy objects for hands-free filming.
Top GoPro Accessories: GoPro Dual Battery Charger ($49.00)
Not only does this charger enable quick charging of two GoPro batteries, but it also comes with a spare battery in the first place!
You can charge the batteries via a USB port or for up to 45 percent faster charging, you can add a GoPro Supercharger to the equation.
GoPro batteries can drain fast, so having a backup that's fully charged and a means of recharging the batteries quickly is an absolute must.
Top GoPro Accessories: Samsung 128GB EVO UHS-I MicroSDXC Memory Card ($23.99)
A fast memory card is a must for shooting GoPro videos, and the Samsung 128GB EVO UHS-I certainly doesn't disappoint.
It's got plenty of storage, that's for sure, and with lightning-fast read/write speeds of up to 100MB/s, you won't have to sit around and wait for it to do its thing.
In fact, it'll transfer a 3GB video to your computer in 38 seconds. Nice!
This card is also waterproof, temperature resistant, X-ray proof, and has a 10-year warranty. Not bad, right?
Top GoPro Accessories Honorable Mention: Wiral LITE Cable Cam ($399.00)
I just got this thing, so I haven't had a chance to fully test it.
However, in the little time I've had to play around with it, I can tell it's going to be a rockstar GoPro accessory for me.
It's billed as the world's first easy-to-use cable cam system, and so far, I wholeheartedly agree that it's easy to use.
It's just a simple rope system that takes about three minutes to set up, but it gets your viewers close to the action with smooth, long video sequences that you'd expect from a much bigger and pricier unit.
Check out the video above to see what I mean - this thing is totally awesome!
