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.

iSteady Pro Gimbal Review | Budget GoPro Gimbal For Under $100



In this review we are taking a closer look at the iSteady Pro, a budget GoPro gimbal that you can pick up for under $100. Before I even get into the review of this new gimbal by Hohem, I want to point out how nice it is to see more competition of GoPro gimbals popping up on the market. Competition fuels innovation and improvements and not to mention forces more competitive pricing. We seen this happen with smart phone gimbals. A few years back DJI release the Osmo Mobile with a price tag of $299. Soon afterwards we seen third-party gimbals launching with prices as low as $99. This caused DJI to lower its price when they launched the Osmo Mobile 2 earlier this year to $129.99.

The Hohem iSteady pro is a simplistic GoPro gimbal that comes packaged in a nice case and even includes a mini tripod for those times when you want your gimbal resting on a suitable surface to create time-lapses. Also included with the kit is a micro USB cable for charging up the unit. I found the gimbal to be very comfortable to hold with its molded hand grip. It is a nice compact gimbal and very light to hold. First impression are good, it is a little plasticky but what do you expect from a $99 gimbal. All in all it does look to be well constructed and even includes a joystick for nice smooth movements.

The Good: The handle features a full-sized USB slot that can act as a power bank to charge any device that can be charged via USB. It also has a micro USB port near the camera mount that can be used to charge your GoPro while using the gimbal. Now this only works for cameras that you mount where the battery door is not blocked by the motor. I found the footage I shot with the iSteady Pro to be quite smooth and was pleasantly surprised. Like all gimbals there is some slight motor vibration noise, however I did find it to be of an acceptable level. Hohem has a nice little app for the iSteady pro that allows you to control the gimbal remotely and make some adjustments to how the gimbal behaves when in use. A very basic app but a nice touch for the price.

The Bad: I did find the gimbal handle would knock the camera on occasion when doing extreme moves/angles, so you have to pay attention to the angle at all times. I also found the horizon a little tilted when doing fast panning, it would correct it self but could be annoying to some film makers while other may like the fluid more natural motion.

All in all I found this to be a nice little gimbal for the price. If you’re looking for a low-cost gimbal you might just want take a look at the Hohem iSteady pro, I am sure you will be satisfied with the purchase. Watch our full in-depth review on YouTube.

New Updated GoPro Seeker Backpack



A few weeks ago GoPro quietly updated the GoPro seeker backpack with a few small changes. The first change is they have made the back pack slightly larger and increased its capacity from a 16 liters to a 18 liters. Upon visual inspection this did not significantly increase the overall size of the backpack. When doing a side by side comparison it’s very difficult to see any size changes. The other feature that have added is a new laptop sleeve located in the back compartment beside the water bladder compartment that is now capable of holding a 15″ laptop. This was one complaint that many had with the original GoPro seeker and has now been addressed.

Another nice thing is that GoPro has dropped the price of the seeker backpack. For a long time the seeker backpack retailed at $169.99 U.S however the new price of the updated GoPro seeker backpack is $149 U.S. You can still purchase the original seeker backpack on amazon for under $120. The big question is … is it worth the upgrade if you already own the original GoPro Seeker Backpack. Personally I would have to say no, to me the changes are not significant enough to justify the cost. However if you are looking to get a new backpack, now is the time with the new low-cost and updated model. The seeker is a high quality GoPro backpack that is super comfortable to wear for long periods of time and can hold of ton of gear. I highly recommend it.
