GoPro is synonymous with action cams, but its only weakness is battery life. Due to its small body, the battery has a small capacity, and it is no longer a matter of course to have a spare battery when shooting for a long time on the go.
“Volta”, which can be said to be the strongest accessory of GoPro, has appeared. With a grip with a built-in battery, it is possible to extend the battery life of the GoPro “HERO 10 Black” from the nominal value of 48 minutes to a whopping 4 hours or more (when shooting at 5.3K / 30fps).
In addition to being equipped with a physical button that allows you to operate the camera body with one hand, it is a versatile grip that can also be used as a tripod when deployed. This time, the “HERO10 Black Creator Edition” that comes with this “Volta” was released, so we also reviewed the “Media Modular” external microphone and the “Light Modular” LED light included in this set. ..
