…There's lots of manufacturers for these…but this is often called the grenade grip.…It's really easy to use.…You're going to put the GoPro either in the…hard plastic case or a frame, doesn't matter.…I've got the LCD backpack on here to make it a little bit easier to frame my shots.…
Make sure you seal that up really well so it's nice and clean.…And then, you just slip it into the holder.…Now, keep your hands on that so it doesn't drop, and take one of…the standard threads, just go into it, and tighten it down, and you've got it.…What's cool here is you can angle this.…So if you want to hold this out nice an straight you can but a lot of times,…I find it more comfortable to sort of hold it like a fishing pole a bit here.…Where it's just wrapped in and I've got it.…Now I highly recommend you keep the strap…on there, because if you're going to be running around…with the camera, you might trip, you might need…to quickly let go to get your hands free.…
And that's what's nice, you can use this.…Or even go as far as, if you want to point back at yourself.…
