    i have recently purchased a GoPro Hero 2018 and was looking for an extendable stick , a handheld grip and a tripod.

    There are lots of choice on Amazon but I was wondering if the GoPro threeway is the best option as it covers all bases.

    All opinions or alternatives welcome.

    If you have a look in Amazon there are a number of sticks at various prices. I use my action cam (not a GoPro) for action shots, usually pinned to one of my Grandchildren, while I film from a safe place.:laugh:
    Personally I have no interest in "selfies":facepalm: I know what I look like.o_O

    Whilst it may be seen as a selfie stick, an additional benefit is the ability to film above crowds. If you arrive late at an event you can film whatever action remains from above, with the option ( in EDIT ) of cropping out any errors.
    A high view-point gives better special awareness to an event.

    Tens,teens and 20's appear to need selfies to prove they visited "somewhere with friends" - no doubt in time they may wish they'd settled for a few pictures just of the places they visited.... but that's life.
    Hope you enjoy filming with the GoPro, but beware that films using wide-angle views mean you get a lot of sky and ground, with the people somewhat smaller.
    Cheers.
