New Head Strap with quick mount to come? (English & Français)

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I've seen on all Amazon (.com/.fr/etc.) what looks like a new version of the GoPro Head Strap with quick mount this time... (the old version had no quick mount)

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00F19PYR4

Head Strap with quick mount

I already own the old Head Strap but I've always regretted that it doesn't have the quick mount to quickly move the camera from the Head Strap to a El Grande for example. So I've ordered the new one to change mine. But unfortunately, I've received the old model, with no quick mount.

 

Of course, I sent it back and got a refund but then I have a question: is there a new version of the Head Strap with quick mount to come? Amazon may have used this picture too early, in advanced, but they have not invented this picture.

So if yes, when is this new Head Strap with quick mount supposed to be sold? (including on the GoPro store)

 

Thanks!

 

--- French version --------------------------------

 

J'ai vu sur Amazon ce qui ressemble à une nouvelle version du Bandeau de fixation frontale avec cette fois-ci le système de fixation rapide intégré...

https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B00F19PYR4/

 

J'ai déjà un Bandeau de fixation frontale mais je regrette qu'il n'y ait pas le système de fixation rapide donc j'ai commandé ce bandeau sur Amazon pour remplacer le mien. Problème... j'ai en fait reçu le modèle sans fixation rapide, comme celui vendu sur GoPro.com...

https://gopro.com/fr/fr/shop/mounts/bandeau-de-fixation-frontale-et-quickclip/ACHOM-001.html

 

J'ai donc renvoyé le produit mais du coup question : est-ce qu'il y a bien une nouvelle version de ce Bandeau de fixation frontale avec fixation rapide qui va sortir ? Amazon a peut-être diffusé par erreur, trop tôt, la photo, mais ils ne l'ont pas inventé.

Et si oui, quand doit être disponible ce nouveau bandeau en France ?

 

Merci d'avance !

@flytheplanet, I reckon you're referring to the Quick Release Mounting Buckle. The newer model of the Head Strap no longer includes this mounting buckle (see the image from gopro.com below). Here's the product link from the GoPro website: https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/mounts/head-strap-plus-quickclip/ACHOM-001.html

Sorry for the wrong naming.

I've been looking for the exact name of this buckle but could not find it.

I'm very sceptical with this answer.

 

I of course know the version sold on the GoPro website, it's the one I have and the one of the link to the French store I've added in my post above. But precisily, this version is absolutely not new!

 

- I purchased mine in 2017 and it was already this ACHOM-001 version without the Quick Release Mounting Buckle.

- We can also very ealisy search on Google and find people complaining about this Head Strap without the Quick Release Mounting Buckle, like this person in June 2014...

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/goprouser/quick-release-mount-with-head-strap-t18683.html

- On this video of 2012 it's already the same Head Strap...

- On this video of 2010, same, already the exact same Head Strap without the Quick Release Mounting Buckle...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17GlXJc4gxE

- Etc., etc.

 

So are you trying to say this version of Head Strap with Quick Release Mounting Buckle is more than 10 years old and Amazon keeps using a very old picture for their item (ASIM B00F19PYR4 / ACHOM-001) that has been first listed on Sept. 2013?

 

While on the other hand, a search on Google shows no single picture of a Head Strap with Quick Release Mounting Buckle (except the Amazon one). Like if this product has never existed in the past.

 

That's why I have a feeling this version of Head Strap with Quick Release Mounting Buckle has never existed in the past and either it's a new product to come and Amazon has disclosed its picture too early, or it was a prototype GoPro was about to release and they so far cancelled the launch.

 

But IMO, there's still a demand for this version as it's really not convenient that nearly only the Head Strap is not equipped with the Quick Release Mounting Buckle.

Thanks to ask the team!

I would appreciate if you could also post their answer here to know if we can expect this new version of Head Strap.

 

I always have the problem. Like currently in winter, I'm skiing and would like to quickly move the camera from the Head Strap to the El Grande on the chair lifts for example. But it's nearly impossible. Imagine unscrewing and swrewing on a chair lift 2 times. I'll lose the screw if not the camera playing this game and it also takes too much time.

 

Thanks for your help to get the feedback!
