Why Do Action Camera Accessories Matter?

Common Action Camera Accessories:

 

As an action camera owner, there are several accessories you ought to have. The most common are:

 

1. Battery Charger with a Spare Battery

 

It is one of the most important action camera accessories that you must have. Your action camera will be useless without power.

 

Do you want your shooting time to remain uninterrupted? Then carry a battery charger and a spare battery as well. 

 

This way, you can charge your first battery while using the spare battery and vice versa. A dual battery charger is even better if you intend to take a long trip and video record for many hours.

 

2. Big MicroSD Card Storage

 

Even though a specific activity may not require this accessory, it is always important. It is available in different sizes. The bigger the memory card is, the better. 

 

A 256GB memory card would store 8 hours recording time of 4K videos recorded at 30fps. You will get 4 hours with a 128GB memory card, 2 hours with a 64GB, and 1 hour with a 32GB memory card. 

 

While choosing the micro SD, make sure its write speed is fast. The fast speed will enhance your action camera's performance. 

 

3. Head Strap and Chest Strap

 

Sometimes your operation will have to be hands-free. If you want to engage in activities that demand using your two hands, these accessories will help you. 

 

Such activities are mountaineering, skiing, rowing, or climbing. You can buy these accessories separately or find them in the accessories kit.

 

You will be able to continue with your adventurous activity with your action camera out of your way.

 

4. Handle Bar Mount

 

It is another action camera accessory that will help you free your hands. However, this accessory is specifically meant for mountain bikes and bicycles in general. 

 

One can use it to mount the action camera on the pole with a 9-35mm diameter. You can choose a larger tube mount to fix your camera on a larger frame.

 

Alternatively, go for the jaw clamp mount. This mount is suitable for a diameter of 6-55mm. It is good for slim objects or those with irregular shapes. 

 

5. Helmet Mount

 

This accessory is a must-have whenever you want to go biking or take part in motorsports. These activities require a helmet for safety reasons.

7. Floaty Camera Case and Hand Grip

 

These accessories are suitable for both on water and in water sports activities. They give the action camera user peace of mind if they go overboard or lose their grip. 

 

These accessories keep the action camera afloat. It is usually bright orange, making it easy to spot it in the water.
