GoPro – HERO 5 Black 4K Ultra HD Camera Accessories Review

 

GoPro HERO users need an extra hand when they’re on the go to capture the sights around them. Fortunately there are plenty of harnesses and mounts to help you get just the right action shot when both your hands are busy! From head straps to give you the ultimate hands-free experience to a harness just to give you a glimpse in your dog’s day, GoPro has an accessory for every shot you could think about taking!

GoPro Headstrap and Quickclip

Strap your GoPro to your head and get moving! The Headstrap and Quickclip accessories allow you to attach your camera to your head, hat or helmet to capture low-impact activities and shots such as zip lining, bicycling or any other extreme sport that whizzes by. The Quickclip also allows you the option of an eye in the back of your head, allowing you to capture shots that happen behind you.

GoPro Chesty Chest Harness

Similar to the Headstrap, the Chesty harness keeps your hands free but also allows them to be the stars of whatever show you’re filming. Keep your Chesty handy for shots such as skiing, paddle sports or bicycling where you want to immerse your viewer in the action! The Chesty is fully adjustable to fit most adults comfortably, while children and smaller adolescents may require the Junior Chesty for a proper fit.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Review

Inspirove - Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Camera

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Review

This is a brief overview of the lightweight camera that I use personally when we travel. I do not like big, heavy devices as my camera needs to fit in my handbag/bag so I can take it everywhere. We are spontaneous on our day trips and never know where we may end up, so I have chosen this lightweight mirrorless camera for these reasons and the quality is good for us. I also use my iPhone camera and we have a GoPro Hero5 for beach and snorkelling adventures which is super easy for Master G to use.

Inspirove - Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Camera

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a camera for the more laid-back and artistic traveller. This mirrorless digital camera is easy to use and features a Wifi connection to make sharing and viewing on the go easier. The compact design makes this camera a great addition to any travel bag of someone wandering the streets of any great city hoping to capture the spirit of the city as they enjoy their walk.

  • Easy to use capability combined with high speed performance ensure that you capture the shot you’re aiming for before it’s over. There’s nothing worse than missing the shot because the camera couldn’t keep up, or worse, human error got in the way. An AF Touch Shutter is built into the rear touchscreen monitor so all you have to do is tap your subject that the moment you want to take a photo and you can ensure the shot is yours.
  • The Mark II includes a viewfinder that will give you a quick glimpse of the finished photo. Working with the touchscreen settings you can capture the shot as you see it without any sort of distortion or lighting issues (such as trying to photograph a dark scene).
  • Built into the Mark II’s software are creative filters and editors that allow you to add variety and edit shots right from your camera. You can create photo stories with multiple photos or merge two photos together to create stunning star trail photos over a city skyline. No matter what you imagine the Mark II gives you the ability to create it on the go.
  • The built-in Wifi allows you to connect your Mark II camera with your phone. This comes in handy if you want to use your phone as a controller to capture longer-exposure shots. The Wifi also allows you to upload photos to social media or cloud storage so that you may edit them in another medium.
  • One of the Mark II’s most prominent features is its interchangeable lens feature. By simply changing the lens you can dramatically change a shot. Making lenses easy to change and easy to transport gives you the ability to do this quickly in the field.
