The newly announced 3-Way Mount from GoPro is, in fact, designed to be used three ways: as a camera grip, extension arm, or tripod. It is collapsible and measures 7.5" folded, and can be expanded up to 20" at full length. The extension arm folds to help you get just the right amount of reach, or it can be removed entirely if you simply want to the use the grip part. Tucked away conveniently inside the handgrip is a mini tripod that connects to the base or directly to your GoPro's housing.
With the 3-Way Mount, the possibilities are endless. Use the grip as a handheld shooter for following action. Use the extension arm to make self-portraits while keeping the camera and the mount out of the frame, or extend the camera so you can get an overhead shot or compose from hard-to-reach spots. For the most stability, where the camera can remain stationary, employ the tripod mode and let the action fly past you.
The system is waterproof so you can safely take it surfing, snorkeling, or whatever your favorite water sport happens to be. Additionally, if you fill the tripod compartment with water, you can even create neutral buoyancy for scuba diving.
3 main configurations in one allow users to capture various angles and meet almost any shooting need including POV, follow cam, crowd cam, static tripod and distance shooting.
This is probably the key use for the 3-Way, particularly since it solves a problem that no other product currently does – how to take a “selfie” photo or video without also capturing whatever is holding the camera out in front of you in the shot. The 3-Way achieves this by way of an elbow joint in the extension arm, allowing the mount to be bent below (or above) the field of view, though it is possible that you’ll still see the hand holding it depending on the angle of the camera. The arm extends out to 20 inches – just about the ideal length for this kind of selfie shot if you consider you’ve got your own arm holding it out as well.
It’s also possible to use the extension arm in a concertinaed fashion, allowing it to be used (for example) to hold the GoPro low to the ground and use it as a follow cam. This is also something which has been difficult to achieve until now with previous mounts, and the 3-Way is likely to allow users to get some innovative tracking shots this way.
GoPro 3-way gripThe second of the 3-Way’s modes is to use it as a camera grip. This is less revolutionary – there are already some good camera grips on the market (for example the Grenade Grip) thought to use most of these with the GoPro you would also need to fit the tripod mount adaptor. Since the 3-Way already has the correct GoPro attachment on it, it is easy to angle the camera just how you want it rather than it being perpendicular to the grip. Overall though, the camera grip’s main utility is in being part of the modular package with the extension arm and tripod.
GoPro 3-way tripodThe third function is hidden away inside the grip handle – a small folding tripod. This also has a standard GoPro attachment on it to allow the camera to be mounted straight onto it; alternatively the grip handle (plus or minus the extension arm) can be screwed on top of the tripod to raise the height of the camera. The tripod is very compact and convenient, but the legs are rigid and non-adjustable, which means that it will only work on fairly flat surfaces – unlike, for example, a Gorillapod mount – but then again, the convenience of having the correct GoPro attachment in place and the tripod neatly stored in the grip means that many will forgive any slight shortcomings.
Sturdy and lightweight design
The sturdy and lightweight design can be used to capture stable footage during almost any activity.
