To bring you the experienced information in the videos a steady investment of camera gear and software has been purchased. Here is some of the gear that I use to make it happen.

I’ve owned the GoPro Hero 8 and 9. The version 10 upgrade was well worth it for me. The touch screen now responds like it should with greater sensitivity. The newer version of Hyper Smooth and the new front screen display took this camera to the next level.
You can charge the battery by leaving it in the camera and connecting the USB cable to a power source but I found that it doesn’t seem to charge 100% that way. Besides, this way you can charge two at once.
Here’s an extra battery. It’s a bummer running out of power in the middle of a recording.
The media mod allows you to attach an external light mod, external mic, or an external monitor for vlogging.
Using this, the camera can be mounted in precarious places given they are metallic in nature.

I actually own the SL2 version because I bought it a year or two before the SL3 was available. The SL2 was rated first in class and had great raves. I have enjoyed using it. It’s been all I need for the videos I’ve used it for. The SL2 is no longer available on Amazon as a new camera so I am providing the link for the SL3.
