GoPro founder Nick Woodman recently released its latest update to HERO3, called the HERO3+ which improved the lens among other additional features for the same price. The GoPro allows you to take awesome action sequence pictures and videos since it’s small and can be easily mounted anywhere (even Superman is in on it).
However, there are plenty of accessories that can even take your GoPro Hero3+ to greater heights. From giving you plenty of mounting possibilities to letting you film underwater, some of these accessories go to extremes so you can get the most of your extreme sports experience.
Some of these accessories should even work with the HERO3 or HERO2 as they share the same mounting holes, but please check the product page to ensure it’s compatible before making any purchase.
