GoPros tripods are excellent for taking photos and videos on-the-go. However, there may be times you need a tripod for extra stability. You want to make sure that the tripod is lightweight, compact, and flexible. There are many types of GoPro tripods, you can tabletop tripods (they are usually mini-sized and don’t extend past a few inches), but you can get full-size tripods as well. A lot of the tripods mentioned in this article can also be used for cameras (and some can be used with your smartphone as well! But, before I get into the top 10 best GoPros, let’s dive into what makes a GoPro tripod great!
Since GoPros tripods don’t come in with an included tripod mount, it’s recommend to purchase a tripod mount separately. I would recommend the GoPro GTRA30 Tripod Mount. Often times, GoPro tripods come with an adapter but if you need to purchase one separately, I recommend that one! So, make sure that you have the necessary mount for your GoPro camera.
As for the height of the tripod, it’s important to consider if you want a tripod with a small height or something that’s full-size. This is important if you plan on your using your tripod for other activities, I personally have one tabletop tripod for my GoPro as well as a full-size tripod since I can use it with my camera and smartphone! You also want to take weight into factor because you don’t want a tripod that’s too heavy. Most GoPro tripods are built lightly, compact, and made to be durable. With that being said, tripods are meant to be stable and should not shake nor wobble on you.
