Description

Compatibility: The Sametop Floating Hand Grip is compatible with all GoPro Hero cameras, including the Hero 9/8/7/6/5/4/3+/3/2/1 models. These are generally marketed as GoPro float poles, and the amount of buoyancy they have is geared towards most of the GoPro models 1, but it’s possible to use them with other small waterproof cameras. You will, however, have to test the flotation with other cameras to make sure there’s enough buoyancy—something like the Olympus TG-6 would probably be too heavy, for instance. With the models where the extension tubes form the flotation, they need to be fully extended to be able to float heavier GoPro models such as the Fusion or potentially, a GoPro with exterior accessories attached. Extending the sections means that they can hold more air. The poles are designed to float without being extended when standard GoPro models are attached without exterior accessories fitted.

Adjustable wrist strap: The adjustable wrist strap ensures that the handle stays securely attached to your wrist while in use. One of the immediate challenges of shooting in water with GoPros is that they don’t float. If you’re in a pool that’s only 6 feet deep, that’s not much of a problem. But if you’re in deeper waters—perhaps surfing, body boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, Scuba diving, or boating—you don’t want your camera ending up on the bottom of the ocean, lake, or river. There are several different ways to make GoPros float, and I’ve covered some of them separately. What I’m focusing on here are GoPro float poles that give you flotation as well as extension. It’s worth noting that there are quite a few GoPro poles that are marketed as waterproof, but that doesn’t mean they float. I’m focusing here on the ones that provide buoyancy. Can I use a floating GoPro handle with any type of camera? Floating GoPro handles are typically designed specifically for GoPro cameras, so they may not be compatible with other types of cameras. However, some floating handles may be compatible with other action cameras or devices.Conclusion: The FitStill Waterproof Monopod Floating Hand Grip for GoPro Hero is a must-have accessory for anyone looking to capture stunning underwater footage. Its waterproof design and floating hand grip make it easy to use and ensures that your camera stays afloat while capturing footage. Its adjustable length allows you to capture footage from different angles, making it a versatile accessory. While it may not be suitable for very deep diving it's certainly an affordable option. Rubber has an improved ability to stay afloat, which makes it ideal for deeper waters or when dealing with larger waves. Foam is well known for its superior buoyance capabilities, yet this comes at a cost as it tends to be heavier and bulkier than other materials. The multi-purpose hollow compartment can be used for storage or flooded with water for filming during deeper dives CRADLE INCLUDED: This Waterproof Floating Hand Grip Pole features a Detachable Cradle for your GoPro WiFi remote (WiFi remote not included). Compatible with GoPro cameras: The hand grip is compatible with most GoPro cameras, including the Hero 9, Hero 8, Hero 7, and Hero 6.

A wrist-strap attachment allows you to tether the grip to your wrist. A carabineer is also included, but it has a tendency to unscrew the base and cause water to leak in, so you’re better off using it with the wrist lanyard. So it works perfectly well as a standard floaty handle. But the telescoping sections give you extra reach. In other words, you get both in one. Even better, it also works very well as a grip handle out of the water.

Floating handles are constructed out of a variety of materials including plastic, rubber, and foam. Plastic is an affordable option and is often used in inexpensive GoPro accessories but it may provide inferior buoyancy relative to more expensive options. The FitStill Waterproof Monopod Floating Hand Grip for GoPro Hero is a versatile accessory that allows you to capture stunning underwater footage with ease. This hand grip is designed to keep your GoPro Hero camera afloat, making it easy to capture footage in water. Lightweight and compact: The hand grip is lightweight and compact, making it easy to carry with you wherever you go. Aside from that, longer handles provide a bit more stability since they offer an extended reach in comparison to shorter grips. Price

The telescoping sections are skinny, but they appear to be made of aluminum rather than plastic. While that does add a little extra weight, it makes a difference with stiffness, and I haven’t found any of the whipping movement you can get with some other thin telescoping sections. The hand grip is waterproof and can be used in depths of up to 16 feet, making it perfect for capturing footage while snorkeling, diving, or swimming. The grip is also adjustable and can extend from 7 inches to 19 inches, allowing you to capture footage from different angles. Things To Know: When you're choosing a floating GoPro handle, consider factors like buoyancy, grip, and compatibility with your camera. With the right floating GoPro handle in hand, you'll be able to take your underwater photography and videography to the next level.The second is that you can screw off the cap of the handle to expose the interior of the handle. You can use it as a water-sealed container for keys or other small items you want to keep dry. Its core consists of two transparent tubes, with one sliding into the other. They’re separated by an o-ring to keep the water out. At one end is a handgrip. At the other end is the camera mount point. The textured EVA non-slip grip provides a secure grip and works just as well underwater as on dry land. At the base of the handle is a brightly colored butt, which will float on the surface making it easy to spot amongst the waves. Are all floating GoPro handles the same? No, floating GoPro handles can vary in terms of their design, materials, and features. Some may be extendable, while others may have additional features like built-in grips or mounts. It's important to choose a floating GoPro handle that is compatible with your camera and meets your specific needs.

Yes, you can mount GoPro handles directly on paddle boards. There are many products designed to be used on water surfaces, such as suction cup mounts that attach to the paddle board’s surface and floaty grips that enable your GoPro to stay above the waves. These make it easy and safe to capture amazing footage of your next adventure! How does a floating GoPro handle work? Easy to use: The hand grip is easy to attach to your GoPro camera, and the adjustable wrist strap ensures that you won't lose your camera while in use.

GoPole specializes in floating extension poles. They have several models, including the long Reach, which extends up to 40 inches, and the Reach Mini, which collapses down to 7 inches and out to 21 inches. Many models come equipped with stabilizing fins and wings, designed to keep the camera level when taking pictures on uneven or choppy seas. You should also look for floating handles that are lightweight but durable, as well as waterproof so you can feel comfortable taking your camera out in any weather conditions. The foam handle is buoyant and comfortable to hold for long periods of time. It’s designed to flip butt-end up when submerged in water, which exposes the bright orange part of the handle so it’s easy to spot. The wrist lanyard is also comfortable and convenient, allowing you to shoot for hours at a time without worry.
