Planning to get GoPro Hero 7 Black soon.. This will be my first GoPro camera. Would love some advice on what are the essential accessories to get other than a spare battery/memory card, etc. Thanks in advance!
Personally , i feel if you doing every type of recording

Lcd screen protector

Suction mount for glass

Gorilla pod as both a tripod and pole mounting , like window grill , railing

Bicycle mount if u cycling

Bag clip mount if you wan 1st person view when walking

Think it good enough

I recently ordered a casing for timelaspe coz scared rain will enter my usb , yet to come so idk if it good

If you are taking underwater shots, please get a filter, if not your video will have red flare when your cam comes out from the water.....

I have gopro hero 4 black and hero 6 black...
Most of time, when not on holiday trips, I will try to use it as car dashcam... lol

Now I am thinking to get the Insta360 One X....
Price wise... almost same as GoPro hero 7

My lame reason is ..... shoot 360 degree scenes first then come back home to frame the shots...

u can't really compare a tg5 with hero7.

tg5 has a microscopic mode that hero7 can't compare with...

if you really want to compare.. then its tg5 over hero 7

GoPro is basically an action cam....
GoPro Hero 7 black can use for underwater video as it is (I used mine gopro hero 6 for skuba diving activities at Maldives and Krabi.)

As for Olympus... I have the older TG4 model... (used as backup) and tried at Krabi but my opinion is ... it’s still decent for general usage, not for video.

GoPro Hero 7 black can take good still photos... can also do timelapse photos/videos.

Only thing about GoPro cam.... you need to bring along spare batteries coz the usage pattern is different from using a normal camera.... you tend to let it ON for most of the time.


PS - for underwater photography/videography, make sure to use a red filter on the lense... Recommended!
