The GoPro Fusion has Landed. Soon we’ll be seeing it everywhere! Ok, well maybe not on the moon, but lots of other places.
Along with the GoPro Fusion will, of course, come the accessories. Let’s take a look at what you get with your Fusion.
First, you get the GoPro Fusion 360 Camera.
he Case for the camera
The GoPro Fusion Extention Pole and Monopod
GoPro-Fusion-Flat and Curved Mounts with Adhesive Pads ( 1 each)
And a USB-C to USB cable.
What you don’t get, unless you ordered it as an add-on with your Fusion is the necessary 2 MicroSD Cards. GoPro sells the SanDisk Extreme® 64GB microSDXC™ for $119.98 for two.
But you can save a little bit (like ALMOST HALF) by ordering them separately for $32.99 each on Amazon . This is the link
But if you have the burning need for more here is my own little “Fusion Store”. Some of these are definitely needed but others I’ll let you be the judge. Please do use these links to buy these as I will get a commission for the sales but it doesn’t cost you anything !
Next, I love the GoPro-Fusion Extention Pole and Monopod but it is just not tall enough for many shots.
My favorite Monopod is from Sirui. I have several of them.
The Sirui P-424S Carbon Fiber Photo/Video Monopod, Extends to 74.8″, Supports 26.5 lbs (rubber upgraded) is great. And at $249 from Amazon it’s a good price for a solid dependable Monopod.
- Load Capacity: 26.5 lb
- Max Height: 75″ / Closed Length: 30″ / Sections: 4
- Weight: 3.1 lb
- 360° Panning Hand Grip
- 8-Layer 100% Carbon Fiber Build
If you want a little smaller but still solid choice, check out the Sirui SUP204SR Photo/Video Monopod at only $159 on Amazon
- Holds 17.6 lbs, weighs 2.9 lbs. Max height 63″
- Three sturdy fold-down support feet that provide additional stability and flexibility. Removable for use as a standard monopod.
- Patented panning grip smoothly rotates 360°
- Adjustable friction control on the base ball head lets you adjust tension for different weight equipment and resistance requirements
- Mounting plate comes with double headed, reversible screw that accommodates 1/4″ and 3/8″ tripod sockets
GoPro also offers the GoPro Shorty (Mini Extension Pole + Tripod) (GoPro Official Mount) for only $39 on Amazon
The only problem with existing GoPro Tripod Mount Adpaters is that with the 360 nature of shooting you need a slim adapter to minimize your image in the Nadir. With that thought I designed a 3D printed version that is available on my Shapeways store (click this link).
You might want a case to put all your GoPro Fusion Goodies in so I found one for you on Amazon a t pretty good price. The Deyard Shockproof Portable Storage Bag and Carrying Case for GoPro Fusion 360 Action Camera
And if you are more of as “Kitchen Sink” kind of person that maybe this little gem will get your motor running!
