What we like

GoPro 3 way grip does a great job without adding a lot of weight to your GoPro kit. Operating this product is very simple. You can easily open the unit, and when closing be sure to press the silver button on the side so that it shuts all the way closed.

The extension arm expands to 20 inches (50.8 centimetres), the ideal length for taking selfie shots without the mount appearing in the resulting footage. It achieves this through the elbow joint in the extension arm, allowing the mount to be bent below (or above) the field of view. But, it’s possible that you’ll still see the hand holding it – it all depends on the angle of the camera. You can also use the extension arm by letting it hold the GoPro low to the ground and use it as a follow cam.

When detached from the arm, the handle doubles as a camera grip. The camera grip mode also works perfectly and feels premium, solid and comfortable to hold. Designed for use both in and out of the water, it works well for diving and snorkeling with no noticeable wear and tear.

Hidden inside the grip handle is a small folding tripod that allows the GoPro to be mounted straight onto it. Alternatively, you can screw the grip handle (with or without the extension arm) on top of the tripod to raise the height or change the angle of the camera according to your needs.

If you ask me the best thing about this product, I’d say it’s the versatility that it provides. GoPro 3 Way grip performs several roles – all of them, perfectly!

What we don’t like

Although this one is an amazing product, there are a few minor flaws that I’ve noticed.

  1. The tripod, though very compact and convenient, has rigid and non-adjustable legs which means that it will only work properly on fairly flat surfaces.
  2. When folded up, the grip feels a little bulky.
  3. The unit is pricey for what is essentially a little more than 3 bits of plastic and some elbow joints.

 

Verdict


Recommended. This lightweight unit does the trick nicely. Although it may seem a little pricey, I think it’s worth all the money, mainly due to the fact that you get multiple products merged into one sleek unit. This is certainly a compelling factor. Plus, you can always trust the original GoPro quality!
