GoPro Hero4 comes to Glasgow Angling Centre!

Here at GAC we have been fans of wearable cameras since early 2009 and were the first fishing tackle retailer in the UK to stock them, selling to and advising anglers and hunters on how to get the best results from these awesome little gadgets! This part of the business has grown over the years and we are now Scotlands biggest GoPro stockists, the leading brand in the market and the biggest selling camera in the world!

HERO - A proper GoPro for under a hundred quid!
We never thought we would see a GoPro camera for just a hundred quid but here it is! The new GoPro HERO entry level camera makes it easy to capture and share your world. Featuring high-quality 1080p30 and 720p60 video, HERO captures the same immersive footage that’s made GoPro one of the best-selling cameras in the world. User-friendly modes include the new QuikCapture function, which lets you power on the camera and start recording with the press of a single button, and Burst Photo, which captures fast-action photos at up to 5 frames per second. Wearable, gear-mountable and integrated into a rugged housing that’s waterproof to 131’ (40m), HERO helps you capture photos and videos that make you look like just that: a HERO.

As well as the new cameras there will be a whole host of new GoPro mounts and accessories to go with them and to fit the older cameras too!
The Handler - a floating grip from GoPro
First up is the new GoPro floating hand grip they call The Handler. Whether capturing selfies, POV or follow cam footage, this buoyant hand grip delivers increased stability and control - making it easy to aim the camera and frame your shots with confidence. Perfect for boating, kayaking, fishing and any other water based activity as it floats any GoPro camera plus a BacPac accessory so you can shoot in and around the water with not a care in the world. Includes an adjustable wrist strap and The Tool, a new GoPro thumb screw wrench that doubles as a bottle opener. Compatible with ALL GoPro cameras!
The new GoPro Smart Remote
Control your GoPro remotely from distances of up to 180 metres (600 feet) with this wearable, waterproof remote perfect for gear mounted shots and controlling multiple cameras at once, You can capture photos, start/stop recording, power your camera on/off and adjust all settings plus when used with HERO4 cameras, you can also access the settings/tag button to easily select settings for your current capture mode and tag video highlights while recording to quickly find later. The Smart Remote delivers full control of up to 50 cameras at a time, and features 40% increased battery capacity compared to the original Wi-Fi remote - and it's cheaper!
The Tool makes it easier to tighten your GoPro thumbscrews to prevent the camera from shifting during high speed, high vibrations activities and delivers the extra torque you need to get your thumbscrews tighter than you can by hand. It is perfect when mounting the camera using multiple extension arms or adjusting thumbscrews in cold conditions with wet, numb fingers. Plus as an added bonus - The Tool doubles as a bottle opener, so you can use it to crack a cold one as you toast another heroic day. Everybody who owns a GoPro will want one of these - and they are only a fiver HERE!
A new version of the LCD BacPac to suit the Hero4
All these new accessories and more, including a Hero4 Black specific LCD Touch Screen with swipe function, a new and improved Battery BacPac that fits all the cameras including old models, a BacPac Extension Cable and a GoPro Hero4 Dual Battery Charger are available to order now from the Glasgow Angling Centre website - plus most of the current range of GoPro mounts and accessories have been reduced in price so it's well worth revisiting those bits and bobs you felt were a little too expensive first time around!
