The BacPac is just what's needed for GoPro users like me who need accurate framing and exposure (the GoPro has automatic exposure, so the amount of sky or backlight in the picture has a profound effect on how dark or light your picture is).

Using the menu is simplified as the LCD allows more space for explanations of menu changes (excellent). The BacPac allows you to play back your footage, too.

The only drawback as far as I am concerned is that the LCD and see-through back of the waterproof housing, are both very easily marked. Despite the fact that there are four housing backs with the BacPac - two for wrist mounted units and two normal (waterproof and non-waterproof for better audio) I anticipate needing to buy new ones (if available) quite soon.

Now that we can see what's going on with the GoPro, I hope the manufacturers will give us two stops (each way) of exposure compensation for the GoPro, so that we can get even better pictures with this fantastic little camera!

The LCD BacPac is a great addition to the GoPro. It makes it a little heavier that can cause problems depending on how/where you have it mounted. It has made using our GoPro a lot easier and the ability to review video you've just shot is worthy of 5 stars alone.

So why the 3 stars? The new housing backs that are included in the pack are so easy to scratch it is unbelievable. I noticed some smears and dust on the inside of the case back I was using so I tried to clean it. I used a rocket blower air blower to remove the dust then a fine micro fibre cloth that I use to clean my other camera equipment. I was amazed when after some very light cleaning the screen was incredibly scratched and marked. If you buy this then DO NOT TRY AND CLEAN THE INSIDE OF THE CASING, you will scratch it and then it will be very difficult to use the screen properly, especially in sunlight.

Luckily there are other case backs provided, but my standard non-waterproof one is now pretty useless. To get an idea of how easily it scratches take the inside back door of your current GoPro housing and wipe it lightly with a micro fibre cloth, you'll see it scratch straight away.

Would I buy this again - yes, but I would definitely not clean the case. I hope this review helps others not experience the problems I have with this otherwise excellent product.

This is a definite 'must buy' if you are going to be using the GoPro in a fixed position like a vehicle roof, bonnet, windscreen, etc. so that you can preview the position and the angle of the lens, i.e. r4 or r5 setting. The BacPac also makes it so much easier to alter the settings on the camera and is ideal for reviewing the footage you have taken. My only problem was some wind roar when using the vented back on my 4x4 (travelling slowly) but the suction mount has a fantastic grip and can stand up to some hefty shocks. The LCD screen does add quite a bit of extra weight to the camera though and in future I will probably only use it to set up the camera then remove it to reduce the stress on the Acrylic housing mount.

After using the GoPro Hero2 HD for a few weeks I decided that I needed (as much as anyone `needs' a gadget) the LCD BacPac.

Unboxing new toys is always fun and the BacPac didn't disapoint. I was very impressed by all the housings that came with it.

Having it attached to the Hero2 adds a little weight but the mounting widgets are able to keep it in place when they're tightened up properly. Although I did find that the camera moves a little when off-road on my trike (KMX Karts Cobra) with the camera mounted on top of a monopod that's attached directly to the trike.

The one major drawback that I found was that the LCD is not capable of playing back long videos (large files). Whilst on my commute to work, which takes just over an hour, two video files are created. I believe the Hero2 stops filming when the file size gets to about 3.5GB - it then starts recording to a new file. This may be due to the file system limitation of the SD card (I'm not actually sure what file system it uses but I assume it must limit the file size).

So, with any video file that's large (I've not done enough tests to know exactly where the problem starts) the LCD won't recognise them. With no photo's (still shots) on the camera I get the `no photo' error message. When there are photo's I just get a blank screen.

I raised this issue with GoPro and after a few days got the following response:

Update for Case #349218 - "LCD BacPac not finding large video files"

Hi Nigel,

We unfortunately have come across this bug.

We have notified our engineers.

Right now the best way to view the larger files is to play them back on your computer or TV.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Very clever add on to the excellent Go Pro HD, better menu interface and playback via LCD screen, excellent only wish it wasnt so costly for all these add on bits of kit. Better if they made a new HD Pro with screen built in or come as part of the overal package when you buy the Unit. With the LCD BacPac attached It takes a bit of getting use to with the added button to play with but very useful once you know what your doing
