The GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) is retailing for S$75 in Singapore and it contains both the Jaws: Flex Clamp and Adjustable Neck (Gooseneck). The Adjustable Neck (Gooseneck) alone is retailing for S$35 in Singapore.

I got the GoPro Jaws (Flex Clamp) from Amazon for US$39.99 (S$54) instead because it is about S$20 cheaper and it qualifies for the AmazonGlobal Saver free shipping.

If you are using the GoPro HERO4 Black Edition, it doesn’t come with a built-in touch display. You will need to get the extra LCD Touch BacPac which cost S$120. I got it together with the GoPro Tripod Mounts at Click! by Max Photo which is located at Funan DigitalLife Mall #04-15.

The LCD touch display is good for framing your shots without the need for using the GoPro App (iOS | Android | Windows Phone) as a live viewfinder because the process can be quite cumbersome and the live viewfinder it lags by about 3 seconds.

As mentioned in my GoPro HERO4 Black Edition’s post, GoPro doesn’t use the standard tripod mount unlike the Sony HDRAS20 Action Video Camera, and hence if you want to mount it to a tripod, you got to get the GoPro Tripod Mounts which is retailing for S$20.

I got mine from Click! by Max Photo which is located at Funan DigitalLife Mall #04-15. They do accept CapitaVoucher and I used my CapitaVouchers that my ex-colleagues gave it to me as a farewell present.

Despite selfie being so popular last year, I don’t own a selfie stick myself. And hence when I was in Hong Kong last December, I am determined to get a good one.

I chanced upon the YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick in SIMCITY (47-51 Shantung Street, Mongkok, Kowloon) and it was the best quality selfie stick that I can find within budget of S$20. In fact, it cost only HK$98 (S$17).

I finally gotten the GoPro HERO4 Black Edition after hesitating for quite some time. Thanks to my mom for buying it for me.

Both models of GoPro HERO4 was out of stock at VivoCity’s Challenger ever since Christmas last year. And since only the Black Edition stock came in, I decided to get the Black Edition instead of waiting for the Silver Edition.
