First gopro, wheelchair user, looking for easy mount ideas

Hi guys,

my wife surprised me with a 7 black for my birthday today. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I love being outdoors and want to capture everyday scenes whether it be down the sidewalk or on a nature trail. She got me the head strap but don't think it's for me, but there is a ball cap mount clip that I think I could use easy enough. Does anyone use this? Also looking for ways to film myself at times. I can ask others to mount and unmount but hoping to find a few ways that I can handle it myself. My right-hand works well but my left hand is limited, wondering if there's a small tripod that I could secure in my left hand while driving my wheelchair? Also looking for a good sd card recommendation, would a 64 gb card be sufficient for 1080 at 60 fps? (I don't know much about settings yet but saw those recommended.)  


I see that people use power banks for extended shooting time. My wheelchair has a usb port to charge a phone, do you think it would be safe to run the gopro from that?


I haven't even opened it or know what program might work to put videos together but I am excited. 


I appreciate any and all suggestions and ideas, thank you!.

Re: First gopro, wheelchair user, looking for easy mount ideas

Welcome to the Support Hub, @abacoian.

The QuikClip enables ultra-compact, low-profile mounting and allows you to attach your GoPro to backward baseball caps, belts and more.

Perhaps what I can suggest is the Hand + Wrist Strap so you can strap your GoPro to your hand or wrist to capture ultra immersive point-of-view footage, one-of-a-kind selfies and more. If you want some sort of poles to mount the camera onto, you can choose from 3-Way, The Handler and Shorty. You may also check this page for various mounts that you can use for your GoPro camera.

To consistently achieve the best results with your GoPro camera, it is important to select microSD cards that are known to work well with the model you have. We recommend only purchasing name brand SD cards through official resellers. Check this article to see our list of the most up-to-date GoPro recommended microSD cards.

It is recommended that the camera is charged through a 5V 2A power source. You can use the USB-C cable that came with your camera to shoot videos and photos while your camera is plugged in to a USB-charging adapter, the GoPro Supercharger, another GoPro charger, or the GoPro Portable Power Pack. This is perfect for capturing long videos and time lapse events. Even though your camera is plugged in, the battery will not charge during recording. It will start charging when you stop recording. You cannot record while charging with a computer.

  • Heads Up: Because the door is open, your camera is not waterproof when charging.

In addition to the details above, you can download a copy of your camera's Product Manual at

Hopefully, this helps!
