Low Profile Mount for Session

Hi,

I just bought the GoPro session partially because of how low it appeared you could mount it.  Unfortunately, once I pulled it out of the box I couldn't figure out how to get it mounted with a low profile.  After a bit of research I finally figured out that the Session used to come with the low profile mount but now it doesn't.  Is there a reason for this?  Is it possible to buy the basic low profile mount (not the helmet swivel mount)?  Have there  been problems w/ the low profile mount? 

 

Thanks!

Yes, low profile mount was included in the first Session release. Maybe similiar story like with chocolade in the supermarket: there's one bar less in the package but price stays the same ;oP

 

It's replaced by the side mount (ball joint). You should be able to source a low profile mount at reasonable cost.

Just noticed it's still included in the grab bag http://shop.gopro.com/mounts/grab-bag/AGBAG-002.html

Re: Low Profile Mount for Session

What about the frame that connects the Session to the mount? It looks like there's one with the mounting tabs that come out from behind the camera; my frame has the tabs underneath the camera.

(Old) part numer for the session frame replacement parts was ARFRM-001 which includes both.

You can still find them in some online shops (i.e. https://www.conrad.de/de/halterung-gopro-the-frame-arfrm-001-passend-fuergopro-hero-4-session-137546...) but it looks like GoPro is no longer selling them.

Re: Low Profile Mount for Session

You can still find the ARFRM-001 "The Frames" kit all over eBay and other sites online.
