Customer Review

on June 4, 2013
The LCD backpack was one of those 'should I, shouldn't I' GoPro accessories. Since getting my GoPro I've found myself doing a lot of timelapses - probably more so than actually using it for its proper function of filming 'rad stuntage' on my BMX.

For timelapses this is an unfortunate must have - being able to tee up your shots before spending 4-5hrs sitting around whilst it films is a god send, and saves those angry moments of getting home and finding your shot to be mis-aligned.

Now, I say 'unfortunate' must have as the overall quality of the monitor is not great, sucks battery if not set to 'auto-off' and adds a fair bit of weight to your set up. I have now got in the habit of setting up the shot with the monitor, then immediately removing it. Picture quality is average at best, any form of sunshine and you'll struggle to see the picture for glare, and the included housings scratch extremely easily - DO NOT remove the protective films on them!

So there you have it - this item should be used as a set-up aid, and at the price point it is unfortunately expensive for this purpose. If you are using it for timelapses you might want to serously consider it, anything else though (e.g. head / chest mounting) and you can definetly live without it.
