GoPro action cameras boast a massive collection of add-ons. We've rounded up a number of essential GoPro accessories to help you make the most out of your camera's capabilities.
You probably never thought of holding your GoPro in your mouth, but it's actually a stable method of filming. Whether you're surfing, skiing, snowboarding, or riding a bike, it'll help you get the shot hands-free with better stability than a handheld mount.
Plus, it's one of the most portable mounts you can buy, and it easily slips in a pocket. It also makes your GoPro float, so you won't lose it in the water.

If you want to create those incredible-looking photos or videos where half of the shot is above water and the other half is underwater, you need this GoPro accessory. The dome port works by forming a glass bubble barrier in front of your camera's lens to create this unique effect. It even has a lens hood to reduce lens flare for even clearer shots. It comes with a floating handle, cleaning cloth, and soft bag.
We recommend always wearing the included wrist strap when you shoot with it, just so your camera doesn't float away or get lost in the ocean's current.
Unfortunately, the GoPro's onboard microphone leaves a lot to be desired. If you want to improve your audio quality and hook up an external microphone, you'll need this adaptor. It snaps right onto the bottom of your action camera, and it lets you plug in any 3.5-millimeter microphone — whether it’s powered or unpowered. It’s a must for serious videographers.
This portable battery's large 10,000 mAh capacity will keep your GoPro camera charged and ready to go. It's the perfect portable external battery for your GoPro because it's water-, drop-, and dirt-proof, just like your action camera.
It has a built-in flashlight, and it comes with a lanyard that makes it easy to travel with. Not to mention, it's lightweight and small enough to toss in a bag. The battery is about the size of an iPhone 8 Plus, just much thicker.
You probably already protect your smartphone’s display with a screen protector, so wouldn’t you want to do the same for your GoPro? This kit comes with two sets of tempered-glass protectors to shield your action camera’s touchscreen display and lens. It's just .3 millimeters thick, and it'll protect against cracks, scratches, and scuffs. You even get two lens caps for an additional layer of protection.
The screen and lens protectors are easy to install, and they can be removed if your first set gets cracked or scratched up. Best of all, the kit costs just 10 bucks!
This adhesive kit from GoPro affixes your action camera to anything from a surfboard, to a kayak, a boat deck, a boogie board, or whatever else you can think of. It’s completely waterproof, and it comes with a tether to rescue your camera in the event that the main mount fails. We recommend using it in conjunction with a Floaty case or Floaty Backdoor just to be extra cautious.
You know how you can double tap your phone screen to alternate between normal and selfie mode in Snapchat? This selfie stick by Spivo essentially does the same, but for your GoPro. Press a button and the mount will rotate 180 degrees. It's lightweight and waterproof, and its grip makes it comfortable to hold.
This ultra bright light is equipped with three LEDs to improve your shots at night. This GoPro accessory is waterproof, too, so you can use it during your night dives up to 98 feet. Best of all, it attaches directly to your GoPro, and it's rechargeable. You should get around 6 hours of use on a single charge.
Filters can greatly enhance your underwater photography and make your shots brighter and less blurry. There's a red filter for tropical or blue water, a magenta filter for green water, and a snorkel filter designed for shallow water. These three filters are only compatible with the GoPro HERO5 and HERO6.
The GorillaPod is one of the most popular portable mounting solutions for action cameras — including the GoPro. The tripod has a quick setup, and it remains stable. Plus, its wrappable legs can go around almost anything.
This clamp keeps your GoPro camera steady, and it mounts on practically anything. Its jaws open 2 inches wide, and it comes with an optional gooseneck that lets you shoot from a variety of angles. Setup and takedown is a breeze, too.
You may think there's nothing special about a strap for your GoPro, but this one lets you capture shots like never before. It attaches to any vented helmet, and it's adjustable and easy to mount. It's the perfect solution for recording your bike trips, ski runs, or climbs. That is, assuming you're wearing a helmet during all your adventures (which you should)!
This tiny GoPro remote lets you control your camera from up to 600 feet away. You can adjust all your cameras settings, start filming, stop recording, or turn your camera off. The remote is essential for controlling your camera when it's mounted to something. It's waterproof, and it includes a key ring and wrist strap. Although we wish it were cheaper, the remote is a must for serious videographers.
This official accessory from GoPro features a hinged, nonslip design. You can set the mount up in just seconds and clamp it to any 0.35 to 1.4-inch diameter tube. Its base rotates 360 degrees, which allows you to find the perfect angle. Whether you're connecting it to your bicycle seat, ski pole, or just a chair, this mount allows you to get a new perspective.
This is one of the most flexible, multipurpose accessories you can buy for your GoPro. Its three-in-one design lets you use it as a camera grip, extension arm, or tripod. The grip moves between 7.5 and 20 inches. We appreciate its light weight and portability, but we wish it were cheaper.
This is probably the most expensive accessory you can buy for your GoPro, but it'll let you capture footage from new heights. The Karma is compatible with the GoPro HERO 4 and 5. It's easy to fly, and it features a 9,840-foot range and a 20-minute flight time. The drone is long and slim, and it folds up, making it small enough to fit in a backpack. A game-style controller is included with the drone.
GoPro announced recently that it's exiting the drone business, and that its Karma drone will be its last. Regardless, it's still a fantastic drone that isn't too pricey.
If you want to create smooth time-lapse shots like the opening sequence of House of Cards, this inexpensive accessory is a must-buy. You place it on a stable surface or a tripod, set the duration, and let your GoPro do the rest. Its body can rotate 360 degrees in 60 minutes or 120-minutes.
This teensy tiny adapter is something you probably never knew you needed until now. It allows you to mount your GoPro on any existing mounts you might already have. That's because most tripods and mounts use a 1/4-inch 20 standard camera pattern, unlike the GoPro's proprietary mounting mechanism. You may want to buy a couple because it's so small and could be easy to lose.
Outdoor and underwater shots can sometimes be ruined because of fog buildup. These nifty inserts slip into your GoPro's housing to prevent condensation. Fifteen reusable slips are included in this package.
This affordable GoPro carry case by AmazonBasics will protect your action camera and its accessories during your travels. Lightweight and durable, it has a tough zipper, a carry handle, and foam padding with pre-cut slots for your gadgets. There are three sizes to choose from.
GoPro's own chest harness will allow you to capture all of your adventures from a more immersive point of view. Tough and highly adjustable, the strap utilizes a vertical mounting buckle and a thumb screw. The accessory comes with its own carrying bag for easy storage. Want one for your favorite four-legged friend, too? Consider getting the GoPro Fetch Harness to capture the world from your dog's point of view.
The Handler is a comfy hand grip for your camera made by GoPro. A great option for water sports, the accessory will keep your camera afloat during your adventures. The grip comes with a wrist strap, which reduces the probability of accidentally dropping your GoPro.

The latest GoPro cameras can capture crisp 4K video, so having a high-quality memory card is essential. The Samsung Evo Select is one of the best options available today, delivering fast data read and write speeds that make it perfect for handling high-resolution photos and video. There are four capacity options, but unless you're a casual user, get at least a 64 GB model.
The official GoPro suction cup is great for attaching the action camera to cars, boats, or other means of transportation. The accessory can withstand speeds of up to 150 miles per hour, making losing your GoPro camera highly unlikely. You can record incredible time lapses with this nifty accessory, too.
This sling pack by Incase is designed with GoPro users in mind.

A spare rechargeable battery is a must-have accessory for every GoPro camera user. This particular offering works with the latest HERO6 camera and includes a charger, so you can recharge two batteries simultaneously. Go ahead and grab one just in case!
This head strap by AmazonBasics will help you capture videos and keep your hands free. It has durable polycarbonate buckles and highly adjustable nylon straps. The latter have nonslip rubber inserts to prevent the strap from slipping off your helmet. The head strap is waterproof, too, so you can use it while snorkeling, skiing, or recording any other adventure.
The GoPro Seeker backpack will fit and protect multiple GoPro cameras and their accessories, in addition to a compact laptop.
