Anyone that owns a GoPro action camera will already understand how awkward small camera can be to use when not mounted to a helmet, board or bike.
Chris Day hopes to remedy this and has created the Exo GP-1 GoPro camera external casing which has been created to transform the GoPro camera into a more DSLR styled device.
Watch the video below to learn more about the inspiration behind the Exo GP-1 camera case and the features it brings to make it even easier to use the GoPro camera when it’s not mounted.
The Exo GP-1 is an all-new accessory for your GoPro Hero 3 or 4 action camera. It’s an external housing which not only transforms your GoPro into a stylish new camera, but also increases functionality and unlocks features previously reserved for higher end cameras.
The addition of a viewfinder allows you to perfectly frame your shots without the need of an LCD screen or app. This means you save on both money and battery life. The lens in the viewfinder replicates the field-of-view of the GoPro’s lens and allows you to always get the shot you’re after.
The Exo GP-1 changes the way you use your GoPro and removes the limitations of the standard GoPro housings. The viewfinder means you can confidently use your GoPro for photography, and the tripod and cold shoe mounts equip you with industry standard mounting points, and let you use your GoPro with conventional camera accessories. All this, wrapped in a solid aluminium protective housing means your GoPro never has to leave your side.
