The beauty of the GoPro HERO action cameras has always been that they can capture amazing footage in nearly any setting. Adding chest, helmet, car, and other mounts makes them even more versatile.
Today, GoPro is launching the Fetch mount, which is the first official GoPro pet accessory, even though many third party companies have been offering similar products for some time.
The adjustable mount can fit dogs ranging from 15 to 120 pounds. Choose from two different mount locations: “one on the back for over-the-head shots and another on the chest for a field of view closer to all the action.” What’s more, it is washable and includes a camera tether to ensure that your GoPro never falls off.
Fetch is now available for $59.99 from GoPro.com and select retailers. Full press release is below.
Incase has also announced a new line of protective bags and cases for action cameras. These products are scheduled to hit on 8/31 and feature the same Tensaerlite material found in Incase’s new MacBook Pro sleeves.
Capture the World From a Dog’s Point of View with GoPro’s Fetch
GoPro Unveils First Mount For Pets
SAN MATEO, CALIF. (August 25, 2014) – Digging, running, swimming, hunting and exploring – dogs can now showcase their world using the new Fetch mount from GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRO), the company’s first pet accessory. The Fetch dog harness has two mount locations for HERO cameras – one on the back for over-the-head shots and another on the chest for a field of view closer to all the action. The fully adjustable mount is designed to fit small dogs of 15 pounds (7 kilograms) to large breeds up to 120 pounds (54 kilograms).
“The adaptability and versatility of GoPro cameras make them the perfect device to document life from a dog’s point of view,” said Paul Osborne, GoPro’s senior director of product management. “We designed Fetch to meet the unique needs and usage for pets and can’t wait to see the images and videos that owners will capture and share now that they have a mount specifically for their dog.”
The Fetch harness and HERO cameras in appropriate housings enable dog owners to document a range of pet activities on land or in water. Mud, snow, water and woods are no match for Fetch – the water-friendly mount holds up to the elements and can be machine or hand-washed to keep it clean. An included camera tether ensures that the GoPro stays attached, no matter what type of play the dog engages in.
