Anyone with camcorder in hand, or action cam on head, has the chance to capture some pretty remarkable footage, maybe even something that could become a viral Web sensation. But there are lots of accessories available that make capturing great action footage even easier. If you’re an avid action-cam user, or know someone who is, these accessories are worth taking a look at. Some of them, such as the mounting accessories made by Flymount, can even turn a conventional camcorder into an action cam.
If you don’t have an action cam just yet but would like one, you might want to invest in one that comes with lots of accessories right out of the box. The Swann Freestyle HD is a good example. If you already have an action cam, there are many accessories available that can enhance its functionality.
The Aiptek Bike Mount uses a standard ¼-inch tripod mount to attach to any video camera or digital camera—anything that has a tripod mount can be accommodated. The device clamps securely to a bike’s handlebars, and can be aimed precisely before tightening. The next time you go for a bike ride, why not capture the sights and sounds of your journey?
