HandlePod, the Multi-Purpose GoPro Accessory

There is an endless variety of GoPro mounts and equipment. Like this video says, you don’t just buy a GoPro. There is a wide selection of mounts, straps, tripods, etc. in every form you can imagine. In addition, there is a range of DIY GoPro accessories you can build yourself. Yet among all these choices, HandlePod stands out as a multi-purpose camera mount that fills many functions in one.

All it takes is a simple tripod adapter for GoPro to take advantage of all the benefits HandlePod provides for cameras and smartphones. The following is a brief rundown of the many advantages HandlePod offers GoPro users.

It’s a Handle for GoPro

Cameras as small as GoPro are difficult to hold and fingers can often protrude into the wide angle shot. HandlePod solves the problem with a comfortable grip and improved leverage for shake-free, hand-held video. It also keeps fingers away from the lens. Turn the GoPro around to video yourself while keeping your hand out of the picture.  Dedicated handles can be purchased or built, but none will do as much as HandlePod does for GoPro.

It Attaches GoPro to Almost Anything

The many adhesive and wearable attachments for GoPro cover a range of uses. But there is nothing that matches the versatility of HandlePod’s elastic cord. It stretches to over forty inches and secures solidly to large objects. Anything the cord will wrap around can support the GoPro on a HandlePod. This opens up a whole new range of possibilities for mounting GoPro.

Use Tape to Stick HandlePod on Walls

There is a variety of adhesive mounts for GoPro, but these are not easily removable for re-use. Duct tape will stick HandlePod to walls or pretty much anything else and easily supports the light weight GoPro. And the camera mount keeps GoPro far enough away from the wall so that a monitor on the back is still visible and precise aiming is possible.

It’s a Mini-tripod for GoPro

HandlePod is self supporting on a flat surface just like a mini-tripod. Place GoPro on any level object with HandlePod.

It’s a Camera Slider

Cover the HandlePod’s rubber-tipped feet with Velcro and it will slide effortlessly across any smooth surface. Make a DIY slider with lumber and a yardstick for perfect tracking shots.

Make a DIY Steadicam for GoPro

With HandlePod and some PVC pipe it is easy to build a steadicam for GoPro starting with a simple, hand-held version. Or you can get more complex by adding a gimbal and a roller bearing to completely isolate hand movement.

Accessories are available for GoPro that will do just about everything. But no single accessory will do as much for GoPro as HandlePod. It is the ultimate, multi-purpose GoPro accessory.
