Creative Mounts of the GoPro HERO4 Session at the Beach

I recently got a GoPro HERO4 Session camera for Christmas, which was certainly a great gift. As I was also at Clearwater Beach in Florida over the holidays, I naturally decided to try it out. Here are the quick mounting solutions that I came up with:

HERO4 Session SandalSandal Mounted HERO4 Session. This would have worked quite well except for the fact that it was very low and the dune blocked the actual beach.

HERO4 Session SockOf course, if you’re transporting your HERO4 Session around, you really don’t want the lens to get scratched. An old sock makes a nice holder, and you can even loop it around your belt if you don’t think that looks too weird. Maybe if you have a bunch of them, you could wear your sock-mounted ‘Sessions around your chest like a bandoleer.

HERO4 Session GoWorxBack at the hotel, I used my GoWorx Original Handle+ (also available from Amazon) to capture a time-lapse of the setting sun. I suppose I could have used a sandal here as well, but the ‘Handle+ seems a little less likely to plummet to the concrete below.

Be sure to check out the results of my balcony time-lapse after the read more link. I’m very happy with the results! Continue reading

Old Sock Makes an Easy GoPro Storage Solution

I actually used this idea originally with a small video camera, but it works quite nicely as GoPro storage in a larger camera bag to prevent it from getting scratched.  Behold, the GoPro sock camera case:

GoPro Storage SockAlthough I’ve never seen the “sock case” anywhere else, I’d be willing to bet I’m not the first to try this storage method.  If you’re wondering about the larger DSLR sling shown in the background, here is is from Amazon.  I generally put the “GoPro storage sock” inside the top compartment, so I have both cameras with me.  The sling is a bit more expensive than a sock, but it works quite well for my needs.
