Chuffed to bits!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GoPro LCD Bacpac (Camera)
I bought a GoPt with HD to take some underwater footage when diving. After my first trip it was abvious that the GoPro is a very capable device and can be used as a proper video camera rather than just something you attach somewhere and hope some good footage comes out. The problem using it as a proper video camera is that you can't frame your subject. Well you can now with the LCD BacPac and it works a treat. The extended housing makes it a little bulkier but not by much. And the battery life drops quite a bit if you leave the screen on for the whole dive. But if you turn the camera on and off inbetween takes you can easily stretch the battery life over 3 good dives with shots on the surface intervals. The screen is obviously not big but it's just right for framing shots. I also have a monopod attached to the camera and with the camera extended out to 120cm and an arms length in front of me you can still use the diaplay to frame shots.
