3 way mount

I’ve seen a lot of reviews on the three way mount. Some good, some not so good; some complain of the price, some complain that it breaks far to easily. I’d like to see some people tell me what they think, good or bad about the 3 way mount.

Re: 3 way mount

Had a cheaper 3rd party 3-Way, dropped it from my car seat onto the ground and it broke. Got another and was filming with my kid, he dropped it and it broke. Got a GoPro 3-way and have used it extensively for about 2 1/2 years and haven't had any issues (and yes, it's been dropped and abused much more than the other two).

The biggest issue is the proprietary screws. If you lose them, you need to contact the GoPro Support Team for a replacement as they aren't something you can pick up at a hardware store. However, if you just keep track of your stuff, this shouldn't be an issue.

Re: 3 way mount

Word is that Gopro will release a updated 3-way this year.

Of course, right after I just ordered the 3 way mount today. Thank you for the info.

Re: 3 way mount

My screw fell out in the sea and I almost lost the camera. I contacted GoPro and they sent me a bag of extras. I like the 3 way, lots of things all in one package. A tad bulky but I’ve reas the shorty is not good.

Re: 3 way mount

My three way mount arrived yesterday. I even set it up and filmed a short time lapse video. https://youtu.be/ZFo9GCH2JAw
Granted, it isn’t long so don’t be to critical lol. Just getting use to the GoPro and all it’s features.

I appreciate your guys’ input.

Re: 3 way mount

Well I had never done a time lapse video and I was running out of battery. But, hey, I tried.
