3 way go pro

Hi there
My concern is that can we go into water with the 3 way go pro with the tripod still attached or shall we remove it to avoid it by getting it damaged by the water

It's plastic. Water shouldn't have any effect on it.

Re: 3 way go pro

Hi @ihabs1,

That is a valid concern. @danielr15 is correct in saying that it is made in plastic making it waterproof. You may just want to make sure to wash it off with tap water after using it in salt water to make sure that no salt build up clogs the part where there are hinges.

Here are the details for the 3-way arm found in the GoPro website:

1.This ultra versatile mount can be used three main ways: as a camera grip, extension arm or tripod. The folding arm makes it easy to capture selfies without the mount appearing in the shot. The handle doubles as a camera grip and stores a lightweight mini tripod that can be used on its own or combined with the handle.
2.Can be used three main ways: as a camera grip, extension arm or tripod
3.Configurable for a wide range of uses, from capturing POV footage and selfies to follow-cam, static tripod shots and more
4.Folding arm makes it easy to capture selfies without the mount appearing in the shot
5.Use the arm and grip as a handheld boom for immersive POV or follow-cam footage
6.Handle can be detached from the arm and used as a camera grip
7.Removable tripod conveniently stores inside the handle
8.Lightweight mini tripod can be used on its own or combined with the handle
9.Waterproof construction for use in and out of the water
10.Measures 20in (50.8cm) when fully extended and collapses to 7.5in (19cm)

I hope these help.
