GoPro LCD BacPac,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GoPro LCD Bacpac (Camera)
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.

This really is what the GoPro needs. I was concerned about the bulk however, and ended up choosing the Drift HD - mainly for its built in LCD, and wrist mounted remote. You can get the older Drift HD170 Stealth for 125quid off Amazon at the moment. Video quality on the Drift HD is better than the Hero1, but not as good as the Hero2. The videos I have seen from the Hero 2 are incredibly sharp. A bonus of the drift for the shy folks is that it does not look so silly mounted to a lid, and the bar on a chairlift (depending on your height) will go over the camera without giving it a clout!
