Best Power Bank For Your GoPro

Published

on

When it comes to power banks and portable chargers for your GoPro Hero 5 or previous generations of GoPro’s there are definitely plenty to choose from. I have been using portable power to keep my GoPro’s charged while on the go for several years and I find the Anker power banks are always a good choice.

I love creating time lapses and long night lapses and some days I am out from morning until night capturing natures beauty with my GoPro’s. For me having reliable portable power is a must to keep me charged up all day so I can get the shots I need.  I use Anker power banks while I am doing long extended 8 hour or longer night-lapses. I just simply plug into my GoPro and it will keep it powered reliably all night long. Anker power banks are lightweight and powerful, they keep all my cameras and devices charged quickly and safely with the IQ technology that adjusts the voltage automatically depending what it’s charging, selecting the fastest way to charge your device without damaging it.

Anker power banks have a simplistic and beautiful design all while remaining rugged to hold up to my daily charging and sometimes demanding needs. There are many different models to choose from depending on if you just want a small pocket sized power bank or a unit that will power you all day.

The Anker PowerCore 10000 has a capacity of 10000 mAh with a footprint about the size of a credit card, just thicker. This unit can recharge your GoPro Hero 5 about 7 times quickly and safely. It can recharge your iPhone 6 up to 4 times. This is a great portable power bank that fits comfortably in your pocket for portable recharging on the Go.

Shark Cage for GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at the Shark Cage frame for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black. In the past, I have reviewed several aluminum frames for GoPro’s. These frames are useful for a few different reasons. Firstly they offer great protection. The tough aluminum build protects your GoPro from drops or when filming in situations where the camera may take some knocks. However, the most common reason for using an aluminum frame is the fact that it has a built-in cold shoe and it makes it easy to attach a microphone to your GoPro rig. There is one drawback to these aluminum frames and that is they are heavy, these frames can add a lot of weight to your setup.

This is where the GoPro Shark Cage is different, it is a minimalist aluminum frame that still offers good protection and only weighs a fraction of the others. The GoPro Shark Cage has a cheese plate included in the pack with several tripod connections. You can mount this cheese plate in many different ways on the Shark Cage. There is no cold shoe included in the package and it will need to be purchased separately. I have included links to the products used in the video.

GoPro Vlogging Case | How To Connect A Microphone To The GoPro Hero 7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at a new style of casie for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black that is aimed at vloggers. This new style of case or as some would call it “housing” has a built-in cavity that can hold the GoPro microphone adapter. When connecting a microphone to the Hero 7 Black you must use GoPro’s microphone adapter which for the most part is a big brick. In the past when you set up a GoPro vlogging rig you would have this adapter hanging off the back and it would always be in the way. There are some DIY methods for managing all these cables and adaptors but they really just were not all that convenient.

A few months ago these new styles of GoPro vlogging cases with a built-in microphone adapter holder started popping up on Amazon and eBay. I ordered one in to take a look at it and I really was quite impressed and wondered why it took so long for someone to come up with this idea. The other necessary component when setting up a GoPro Vlogging rig is you need a way to attach your microphone, most commonly this is called a cold shoe. In the past, there have been many offerings of aluminum GoPro cases that had a built in cold shoe and for the most part, they have always worked well (except dangle mic adapter). The downside to these cases is they were quite heavy and added a lot of bulk to your rig. This new style of vlogging case is made of durable plastic and is significantly lighter. They also feature a raised cold shoe for connecting a microphone, this raised cold shoe helps keep the microphone out of the GoPro’s wide field of view.

You can watch our video review of this new style of GoPro Vlogging case that is compatible with the GoPro Hero 7 Black, Hero 6 Black and Hero 5 Black.
