GoPro LCD BacPac 2011 adds montitor to your existing GoPro Camera
GoPro has released a new easily attachable LCD screen for you existing GoPro for $79.99. One of the main feature requests I have heard from people on the GoPro is the ability to see what you are shooting. The LCD BacPac is an easy to use attachment that solves this problem. I set mine up last night. A quick firmware update and everything worked great. The unit still works great without the LCD screen, but there are many time when seeing your angle and confirming your shot can help out. This attachment solves this problem and makes your GoPro a much more powerful production tool.
You can get the LCD BacPac directly from GroPro's webiste for $79.99 . Remember, this is an add on for your existing GoPro HD camera. You must own or purchase the main camera to use this.
It takes less than 3 minutes to switch from no LCD to the BacPac and visa versa. The process is super simple, you do not need to be a techno geek to figure it out. Also, the menu navigation is accessible on the LCD screen and it makes it alot easier to navigate the sometimes complex menus on the main body of the GoPro.
The GoPro HD is a game Changer. Being able to shoot 1080 HD video with a camera that fits in the palm of your hand still blows me away. The old days of crappy POV footage are long gone.
Here is an edit from TGR athlete Todd Ligare using the GoPro to give us a rare glimpse into skiing some crazy lines at Jackson Hole.
