    Hi,

    In my quest to keep up with the younger generation, I invested in a GoPro 4 Silver Edition. Pretty cool but quickly realised that I need to buy some accessories on top of the GoPro.

    Happy to receive any pointers or tips.

    There are a million accessories and the end use decides which you "need".

    Selfie stick is a pretty good start as is some kind of mount (be it a stationary one or body/helmet mounted). If you're going to get wet/snow then some of the screen protectors are a good investment.

    You can easily spend more on accessories than the GoPro costs!

    At the moment, just using it to make videos and just normal things to get used to using it. Would like to venture out into water based activities and for drones.

    I can't believe that I bought a selfie stick. I was adamant that this wouldn't happen.

    The sale assistant did a number on you to buy all the accessories! Hope you asked for a discount!

    ebay.. buddy
    don't want to be hiking for 5-6 hours and battery dies after 2 hours, mounts were only 30$
    A good Underwater filter is required for snorkel and scuba that was the pricey one at $60
