Camera Accessories

The latest


Easily the most versatile mount you can buy, this accessory turns your ski pole into a selfie stick for powder-heavy face shots. It also fits multiple positions on your bike: stick it on your bars for head-first action, or turn it backward on your seat post to capture a friend…

We featured the FXpedition Monopod in our roundup of the best camera accessories of 2017. When you need some stability to get the shot, you can use this foldable monopod. Bonus: it doubles as a hiking pole.

Get your finger out of the shot with this small extender handle, which is especially handy on water-based adventures. The bottom of the grip has a flotation device that will keep your camera from sinking to the bottom of the ocean when you get smacked by a rogue wave.

Regardless of the action camera you own, it comes with accessories. Between cords, batteries, and micro SD cards, there’s a lot to keep track of. Organize it all with the Legend, a crushproof case that holds up to two GoPros and countless extras in padded foam cutaways. There’s even a…

The Capture clip was originally designed to allow you to tote a large camera on your backpack strap or belt for hands-free carrying. Add the POV kit and you can use the Capture clip to mount your GoPro to your backpack strap, giving you the same easy access as the…

Action cameras don’t have flashes. You can try to rig a headlamp on a tree to get your video in the dark, or you can use this duo of LED lights, which sandwich your action camera via a mounting bar, throwing 3,000 lumens on your subject. They’re just as durable…

Joby’s flexible joints allow you to secure this tripod to a tree, fence post, car bumper—almost anything you can think of. Fix the camera and use a remote trigger (or app on your phone or watch) so you can be the director and talent in the same shot. You can…

The Corey is a budget-friendly option with a ton of features, like microadjustments on the legs and head, which let you get the steady shot and angle you need. We dig the interchangeable feet—they give you security on a variety of terrain. It’s big (it weighs over three pounds and…

The RoadTrip Air folds down to just 11 inches long, so you can squeeze it into a backpack, but then it extends to 61 inches, so you get a relatively tall stand for an economical price. It’s built from aluminum (instead of the more expensive carbon), and it can hold…

Stability is the key to the Square Jellyfish, which can hold an oversize iPhone 7+ steady in horizontal or vertical position. The key is the metal frame, which gives the infrastructure that wraps around the smartphone more of a backbone.

This looks like a little selfie stick, but it’s actually a lightweight (2.25-ounce) tripod built specifically for the GoPro. As an extension rod, it’ll help you nail hard-to-get angles (and make sure your thumb is out of the frame). Convert it into a tripod and you can stabilize the frame…

Much like the GoPro Shorty, the Pixi works as a handheld grip or a traditional tripod, depending on how you configure it. But this one is built for small DSLRs and point-and-shoot cameras, and it has a ball-head design that allows you to microadjust the camera angle.

The Everyday Sling from Peak Design can fit a full camera body and two lenses.
