All of the GoPro cameras are amazing and can go just about anywhere. Sometimes all you need is the right accessories to get the exact shot you were looking to get. I am going to go over some of the best accessories on the market. Click on any of the pictures or links to go to the respective accessories page to learn more.
Here are the various popular accessories categories for GoPro:
Poles, Tripods and Handles
When it comes to getting the perfect shot with your gopro all you need is the right equipment. Poles are great for getting a picture of yourself at a distance. With the addition of the fish eye lens you will always be able to get a great shot. A tripod is what you are going to need if you want a steady shot with a time lapse, night scene or a landscape with a perfectly straight horizon line. If you want to get a great shot while surfing or snowboarding then you are going to need a short handle like the one on the left. They give you great perspective and allow for a lot more control than any sort of mount.

Mounts, Floaties and Tethers
There is nothing worse than losing your camera. Having a floatie or a tether is a cheap way of protecting your camera from sinking to the bottom of the ocean or a lake. Mounts allow you to attach your GoPro to cars, boats, motorcycles, helmets, surfboard, kyaks and more. Here you can find a mount for anything you want to attach your GoPro to.

BacPacs and Remotes
There are several BacPacs that can be attached to your camera to make it more versatile. The LCD touch BacPack allows you to playback videos and frame your shots so you know exactly what you are going to get. If you are worried about battery life there is also a battery bacbac. This will just about double your battery life.
Housings and Filters
If you need a different housing then this is where you will find them. There is a standard housing, skeleton housing and dive housing. If you plan on scuba diving there are several filters to choose from to help color correct at depth. The color of the filter you are looking for will depend on the color of the water you are diving in.
There are all kinds of different carrying cases out there for your gopro camera. Here I will highlight a few that I either use or they have caught my eye. Take a look and see if one of these will work for you.
