    Great, but make sure you've got the Hero 3!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - The circular one is great, it protects the camera lens when it's out of the case. - The plastic is kind of flexible and it grips well to the GoPro. - Stops your lenses getting scratched during transport. These are way cheaper than new lenses! - The lens c...
    Cons:
    - The square lens cap doesn't fit the Hero 3+ as the ring around the lens isn't as big! This can be solved by gluing a small le...

    Great insurance for your camera

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Stops you losing your expensive GoPro if the mount comes loose. - Really sticky, once it's on there's no way it's coming loose! - Good length of cord already attached to the sticky plate. - Well constructed. - only £1 extra to prevent the loss of you...
    Cons:
    - Will not come off whatever you attach it to! (Could be a pro or a con!) - String isn't great quality, I think it's the weakes...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Exactly the same as the official GoPro one! - Strong, sturdy plastic plate. - good solid mounting slide - good elastic straps - robust plastic clips and adjusters - opens like rucksack straps, you can take it off your back rather than having to pull it ov...
    Cons:
    - No GoPro logo, but that's not expected, you can use a GoPro sticker on the bottom section anyway! - Can get a little uncomfor...

    Great tripod mount

    posted by Jakemcconnell on 02/07/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is a great tripod mount, fits all standard tripods and all gopro extension arms etc. The plastic is well moulded, there are some small defects but that's what you can expect for the price! The threaded section is a metal inlay, so the threads should be...
    Cons:
    Depending on the mounting screw used it can be a little loose on the gopro but if you use the genuine screws it fits fine!

    Cons:
    -if any, the tail cap was a little wonky, and quite hard to get back on, but not that hard! It's hard to find criticism of this...
