Hi guys welcome to techydiy, i’m Nigel
and in this video I’m going to look at the Greleaves 50 in 1 GoPro accessory
kit. Before we check out the kit let’s have a quick look at the GoPro mounting
system. All versions of the GoPro are the same with two mounting fingers on the
case, which slots into three mounting fingers on the mount. This is secured
into position with a screw and once the camera is in the desired position the
screw can be tightened to lock it. The extension arms are supplied in short
and long lengths and they have three fingers on one end and two fingers on the other.
Extension arms change the orientation of the camera by 90 degrees and allow a
great deal of flexibility in the camera position. Another type of mount is the
quick release buckle. This screws onto the GoPro camera in the normal way and you
can then quickly attached and release it from a quick release mount. The third
type of mount is the standard quarter inch screw
thread that you find on normal cameras. To mount the GoPro onto quarter inch
thread accessories then we use the gopro tripod mount adapter. ok so now let’s have kit itself. First of all we have a
storage case. The case is semi-rigid. It has a mesh storage compartment and a foam
insert, which can be removed. All the items fit in the case. Then we have a
drawstring bag. This is useful for carrying wet
equipment after you’ve been filming in the water. This packet contains anti-fog
inserts which are placed into the GoPro case. We have long and short extension
arms. Four long screws and two short screws. Two curved quick release plates
with adhesive pads. Curved quick release mounts are ideal for mounting on helmets.
To attach one, remove the protective backing from the adhesive pad and apply
it to the mount. Then clean the helmet surface with rubbing alcohol, before removing the
second backing from the adhesive pad and applying it to the helmet. Allow at least
24 hours for the mount to adhere properly. We also have three flat
quick-release mounts. Three adhesive pads. Three quick release buckles and two
j-hook buckles. The difference between the two types of buckle, is that the standard
buckle doesn’t allow for as great a range of movement as the j buckle.
We also have a bike handlebar mount. It is used for mounting the GoPro onto the
bikes handlebars, seatpost or the frame. They are also handy for mounting on ski
poles or booms. Slots cut into one side of the bracket allow the easy removal of
the screw and the mount splits apart. Making it easy to install on tubular
sections of the bike. By using a combination of extension arms
you can position the GoPro in the required position. There is a tripod adapter for mounting the GoPro on
quarter inch screw thread accessories. and this is a tether, which helps to prevent losing your camera, if a mount
breaks in extreme conditions. There are two options for attaching the tether to
the GoPro. If you GoPro has an exposed slot in the hinge, then loop
the tether through the metal hinge bar on the back door, keeping it centered and then replace the
back door. If your GoPro doesn’t have an exposed
slot in the hinge then loop the tether around one mounting finger
on the camera housing and fix the housingto a mount with a thumbscrew. You should then attach the adhesive pad on the tether
to something secure. This is a velcro strap. And this is a quick clip mount that can attach
the camera to rucksacks straps, belts and even baseball caps. Noving on to the suction cup mount,
this is normally used to attach the camera to the windshields
of cars, bikes and boats or indeed any smooth, dry surface and it’s pretty
simple to use; just place the suction cup on the
surface and depress the lever. To release it, unlock the lever and pull on the
plastic tab. This is my favorite item in the kit, a floating handle or bobber.
I accidentally dropped a GoPro in the sea a couple of years ago that didn’t have a
floating handle on it and it was never seen again. This one is a basic model, it is extremely
visible in the water and it has more than enough buoyancy to keep the GoPro afloat.
I quite often use it as normal handle but when we’re kayaking or sailing, I
just push it into the front of my buoyancy aid and it fits perfectly. Of course, if it does fall out, you can easily recover it. We have a curved helmet extension arm
which can be attached to the front of your helmet to include yourself in the
video footage. There’s a telescopic selfie stick or
monopod which extends to approximately 108 centimeters or 42 inches.
It has a quarter inch screw thread mount with a lockable 180 degree joint.
On the other end it has a quarter inch female thread so it can be mounted on a
tripod. The tripod adapter converts it for use with the GoPro.
The lockable joint allows you to set the camera
in the most appropriate position. Moving on to the mini tripod, this has a
lockable quarter-inch ball mount. It is very lightweight and useful for passing shots
or time-lapse capture. Again the tripod adapter is used to mount the GoPro. This is a vented helmet quick release mount.
The straps are passed through the vents
in the helmetto secure it in position. This is a head strap mount.
All the straps are elasticated and adjustable. The mount is a standard GoPro type.
It’s not one that I used very often, but it might be useful for filming while you’re
climbing or working on equipment. This is a wrist strap mount, which
features a standard GoPro type attachment. The mount rotates and you can
lock it in position by pushing a button. The inner strap is padded and can be
adjusted for size. There is also an outer strap that
attaches with velcro. Overall it feels very secure. finally we have the chest mount, this is
one of my favorites. The buckle on one side opens up to allow you to put your head
and arm in. All the straps are elasticated and adjustable.
It has a quick release mounting plate and it’s best to use a j buckle to mount the camera. Alternatively you can mount the camera
upside down and change the camera orientation in the GoPro settings menu. This is the sort of viewpoint you get when
you’re walking and filming with the chest mount. So that’s the kit. It contains most, if not
all of the mounts and accessories you’re ever going to need. In my opinion it’s
good quality and excellent value and I’m happy to recommend it. i will put the
