What extras do I need if I buy a GoPro?
Newer ones are micro SD not SD. Should get a lot longer than half an hour out of a 32gb card. Look here.
I would suggest 720p is fine for most uses anyway TBH.

I only ever use the chesty la rue mount tbh.
But it’s worth varying the connecty bits you use on this (you’ll have several supplied).
The longer one enables you to point the camera down more, which I prefer.

I would buy a decent 3/4 camera instead as the footage from Go Pro that I have is rubbish unless you have pretty perfect conditions/light. Do you really want to spend that amount of money on something that is pretty one dimensional?
I got one of these and it takes really nice films.Posted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber
chesty is good, rear facing mount on seat/seatpost is fantastic if you have someone riding right behind you.
I bought the Phantom battery charger and spare batteries, same as the wasabi but a lot cheaper, last longer than the original go pro battery.
editing everything into something short is the real extra requirement though! I’ve not tried the new go pro cineform software with film edit templates yet but it may speed things up a bit.Posted 4 years agosimonr2011Member
I got a couple of spare batteries from Amazon which came with a external charger for about £25 also a chest,head and tripod mount from ebay for £20which came from China in about a week and work as they should.
I did buy an original handlebar mount tried it once and took it bag as a total rip off and didnt even grip my bars.
Dont for get to get a decent memory card and not just class 10.Posted 4 years agoLesterMember
you dont need a handlebar mountPosted 4 years ago
the box it comes in has a spare dummy mount which you can take off and drill a hole in it and use it instead of a top cap on stem.
also the mike is crap, you really need an external mike, but that means you have to drill a hole in the casing if you keep it in the casing.
oh and you need the bluetooth app for your phone so you can see the playback and when to start etc
