So after wanting to buy a GoPro for ages now, I've finally got round to buying one and thought I would share with you what bits I have so far.



GoPro Hero
After consideration of all the models I decided to go for the entry-level Hero model as it had all the functions that I needed while still being fully waterproof and shockproof so you can use it in pretty much any situation you want to. It still films up 1080p so I will be able to get some very high quality film out of it.

GoPro The Handler Mount
I went for this mount as my basic carrying handle when wanting to film so that I had a more sturdy grip on the camera to give better photo and video outputs when using it handheld. The great thing about the mount it that it is fully waterproof and will float itself and the camera so you can use it in water and not have worry about it sinking and loosing it.

GoPro Tripod Mount
These are going to be very useful for using the camera as it will make things so much easier. It will allow me to use the GoPro on both my mini and full size tripods for stability when filming and when wanting to do time-lapse sequences.

SanDisk Extreme PLUS MicroSDHC Class 10 32GB Memory Card
With the amazing quality that this camera can output, I wanted a memory card that could cope with processing this and have plenty of space. The Hero only accepts memory cards up to 32GB so I went for the max possible with a quick read speed of up to 80MB/s.

Lowepro Dashpoint AVC 2 
After spending the money on a camera and mounts, getting a decent case to protect it was a no-brainer. After spending hours looking through different cases I went for this one as it fits the camera and all the mounts in comfortably with some space left for additional mounts I will buy in the future. Its got a hard outer casing to protect everything inside with separate soft lined compartments inside, and being from Lowepro, I knew it would be a brand I could trust.

That's what I have got so far, and I can't wait to go out and use it. When I've had chance to test it out properly I will put up some of the footage and images I've got with it as well as a review.

Do you have a GoPro or plan to get one? What have you been using it for?
