We’ve literally been looking into how to operate our GoPros safely and remotely whilst riding; and now we’ve found the solution!
The GoHawk labels itself as the ‘ first GoPro accessory that adds a universal external shutter button input AND has a wired remote LED indicator for helmet use’ and we reckon that they might just have claim to that title.
We’ve been looking for a simple, plug-and-play solution to this very problem for a while now – especially as we build up our YouTube channel – and this ingenious little bit of kit looks like just the answer.
The GoHawk is a GoPro expansion pack that adds three new types of functionality to a GoPro Hero4 for a better shooting experience:
- Remote shutter button input. Save time by only shooting the photos you want, not the ones you don’t. Choose from a hands-free mouth switch or thumb triggered handlebar switch, or use your own switch with the universal 2.5mm port.
- Remote LED indicator lets you know that your camera is on and recording. Mount it in your helmet or wrap it around your handlebars.
- Auxiliary USB Power Input for extended shooting – never run out of power again!
With 30 days left to run and already 164 backers, it’s looking like the $20,000 goal will be hit within time; they are already up to $14,000 by the time we publish this.
So if you’re looking to get into the ground floor and pick up the perfect tool for helping you on your motorcycling vlog journey, then we recommend getting in quickly before they hit their total and the pricing inevitably goes up!
