Gear Review: VuVantage VuPackPole Camera Accessory

by: Andrew Matranga

Vuvantage VuPackPole
Vuvantage VuPackPole

POV camera accessory

Pro tip: Get unsurpassed POV shots with this carbon-fiber arm, which attaches to a GoPro (or similar minicam) and slips into your backpack. Our crew carried it during a weeklong hiking adventure in Jordan, where they were able to capture steadicam-like action shots and high-angle group shots. Best part? It’s hinged, and can be set so the pole doesn’t have a cameo in all your pics. $140; 1 lb. 11 oz.; vuvantage.com

All cameras are POV right out of the box, no accessary necessary. This device provides for not-so-obvious selfie shots.
