The Handler is GoPro’s move into the hand held grip market for waterborne users. It is designed to perform a very similar role to the GoPole Grenade grip with the added bonus that the GoPro The Handler is designed to float (even when using a Bacpac).
Losing a GoPro because the sticky mount has failed is not a nice experience. I have been there. Using a leash or tethering system has become a key part of using a GoPro, especially when attached to a kayak, paddle or helmet. Since the release of the GoPro Hero 4 the usual place to add a leash to tether the camera has gone.
GoPro have removed access to the metal bar that acts as part of the hinge, this was used by many to attach a thin piece of cord although some housings have failed due to this. The frame that is supplied with the 5, 6 and now 7 do have the metal bar, however it is super difficult to get some cord around it so I have continued using the method described here.
What SD Card For The GoPro Hero7 Series? It super important that you use the best memory cards possible with your GoPro camera whether it’s the GoPro Hero7, Hero6, Hero5 or indeed any of the GoPro cameras currently available. The following SD micro memory cards are approved for use in the GoPro Hero7 Black, Silver and White editions by GoPro themselves.
All of the cards listed below are fast and you’ll need fast and reliable if you are shooting at high resolutions. We are currently running the Lexar, Sandisk Extreme and Samsung EVO cards in our GoPro Hero7.
One of the biggest areas that is overlooked when getting a video/camera setup for trips out is the speed of the your SD or Micro SD card. Now this doesn’t matter if your camera is a GoPro, DJI, Contour, Garmin, Sony , Nikon or whatever because without a good memory card you may struggle to capture the video footage you want.
The Speed Class Rating is the official unit of speed measurement for all SD cards, including both full and micro sized versions. Speed Class is a minimum speed based on a worst case scenario test and represents the minimum transfer rate of data that the card is capable of.
It’s no great surprise that GoPro have a new camera coming out as it was all over the net a few weeks ago when a store display unit was photographed showing the promo shots for the new series of cameras.
