As the self-proclaimed creators of the 'world's most versatile camera', Go Pro offer a unique blend of form, function and fun. With the popularity of action cameras ever increasing, Go Pro have had to manage competition from Polaroid, Sony and many other brands but, in spite of this, remain the rulers of the roost.

We're not sure if it's a result of their in-house marketing, celebrity fan-base or the fact that this tiny piece of kit captured the imaginations of thousands of individuals around the world, but Go Pro, Inc. are experiencing enormous success. (And, hey, if you don't have one yet, why not?)

Although we can't give you the exact statistics on why Go Pro is the world's most loved action camera brand, we can give you a pretty good reason why they're ours, and that's the variety of compatible accessories to go with it. Check out some of our favourites...

1. Phantom Quadcopter

The Phantom Quadcopter, a lightweight craft with underbelly Go Pro mount, resembles the remote-controlled helicopter toy we all wanted as a child. Apart from this is its bigger, better brother - the one we never received at Christmas. At £450, this piece of kit isn't exactly in the 'Toys 'R' Us' price range, and should probably be reserved for those of us above the age of 10.

Eliminating the need to go sky diving to get impressive aerial footage, this remote-controlled quadcopter features sophisticated technology to produce stable flight, autopilot mode and built-in GPS. Get your Phantom Quadcopter at:

2. Custom-fit Go Pro Case

Although we might be a little biased, we think DURAGADGET's custom-fit case for the Go Pro Hero 3+ (and older editions) definitely deserves a place in our top five accessories.

Offering purpose-built and ergonomically-designed sections for your action camera and all of its corresponding accessories, this hard shell case is lightweight, ultra-portable and extremely functional. And where else can you store all of your new Go Pro accessories without one of these? Picks yours up for under £15, by following this link:

3. Go Pro Jaws Flex Clamp

Go Pro's official merchandise here, the Jaws Flex Clamp easily enables you to attach the action camera to anything and everything in sight. What sets the clamp apart from other accessories is its lack of the usual bolts and sticky pads required to use the other mounts.

The mount offers multi-angle viewing and variation in the shots you capture, whilst being fixable to almost anything. It's pretty much a necessity for any Go Pro user. Check out the official Go Pro website for this mount and many others.

4. Chest Harness

Action cameras, especially Go Pro, have been acclaimed for their ability to connect the user with their camera - creating a photo and video experience that is unlike that of a traditional camera.

For this reason, the chest harness is one of the most popular accessories amongst Go Pro users. They enable footage captured directly from the photographer's perspective and can be used for almost anything, from extreme sports to travelling videos (and we heard the guys over at Deadliest Catch even attached a Go Pro to a crab). The harness costs £37 from the official retailer, but you can pick up a cheaper alternative here:

5. Dog Harness

This Harness is essential for any dog lover who would love to  capture their pooch's playful world. The mount itself includes a joint which will allow you to to customize the viewing angle and capture different perspectives.

The dog mount can also be adjusted to fit most small and medium sized dogs (Bulldog, Spaniel, Bull Terrier, Beagle, Hound etc.), with padded material for supreme comfortability. Most retail anywhere up to £40, but you can get yours here for just under £15:
