Floating GoPro Camera Mount



Here is a must have GoPro accessory for any GoPrographer who likes to capture content in and on the water. This is a floating GoPro camera mount that can help you capture unique perspectives when filming with your GoPro in lakes, rivers or at the beach. This 5 pod floating camera rig will also float the weight of a GoPro Fusion and can help you capture beautiful immersive 360 video from the surface of the water.

Unfortunately we are in the dead of winter and I was unable to test it out in a large body of water, I did perform several stability and float test at my home and all with impressive results. The built-in stabilization of the GoPro Hero 6 Black and GoPro Fusion really help keep the footage stable. Of course if you are out in the water on a really windy/wavy day this floating GoPro camera rig will not work the best. A calm day would be the ideal situation for using this floating GoPro mount.

A floating GoPro mount like this works great for water sports such as kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing or even just a fun family beach day. It can help you get those nice shots with our the use of a camera man. What is really interesting about this floating rig is the fact that you can flip it upside down to film yourself underwater while diving or snorkeling. They sell this floating mount in two configurations. A 5 pod model and a 1 pod model. One pod will keep your Hero 5/6 Black afloat. It wont be as stable in the water but it will be a lot easier to pack. If you purchase the 5 pack configuration you can also use in the one 1 pod configuration as demoed in our video. When using just one pod It can only be used to float your GoPro upside down for filming underwater.

5 Pod Rig:
1 Pod Rig:


Capture smooth footage water footage with your GoPro. No Camera man needed with this floating GoPro Rig by Telesin.


One pod configuration for floating your GoPro upside down only.


There is a wrist strap if needed that can be attached easy.


Can be floated upside down in water to get interesting perspectives of your under water activities such as snorkeling or scuba diving.

Best Memory Card for the new GoPro Hero 2018

There are many types and sizes of memory cards on the market that will work with the new GoPro Hero 2018 but to keep things simple I recommend the Lexar 633x it is a great memory card at a decent price and I have always had good luck with them.  You can choose how much storage you would like the most common is 32 GB or 64 GB. This determines how many photos and videos can be stored on the camera.

Must Have $10 Upgrade For Your GoPro



If you own a GoPro this is a very inexpensive must have upgrade that everyone needs. One annoyance that I have had with my GoPro is having to remove it from the frame every time I want to charge it or plug in a microphone. With this 3rd party GoPro frame you can open and remove the charging door on your GoPro without having to remove it from the frame, saving a lot of time and aggravation. This frame also seems to be a better build quality than the stock frames, it has a nice rubberized coating. This is such a simple little fix, I wonder why GoPro has not implemented it yet on their official frames. Because they all have the same form factor this 3rd party frame is compatible with the Hero 5 Black, Hero 6 Black and the new GoPro Hero (2018).

GoPro Upgraded Frame:


This 3rd Party frame allows easy access to the GoPro charging door.


You can see the difference in the cutout. Stock GoPro frame on the right and 3rd party frame on the left.


Charging door can easily be opened and removed without having to remove the camera from the frame.


Allows you to easily charge your GoPro or plug in a microphone.
