Camera Accessories

Here are the accessories and mounts we’re currently using on our adventures.

DJI Selfie Stick

I’m loving the Osmo Action 3 extension rod. At 5 ft (1.5 m), it is one of the longest selfie sticks I’ve owned. It is stable, long, and has a nice grip.

Car Mount: Delkin Fat Gecko

See this mount on Amazon or Adorama. Here are a few more options for car mounts.
