The LCD BacPac is designed to give extra functionality to the GoPro series of cameras. This includes the Black, Silver and White 3 series cameras and the Hero and Hero 2 cameras (but without the touch screen functionality).
The LCD BacPac is a small unit that clips onto the back of a camera and is powered from the camera itself. It allows you to edit the cameras settings, frame your shots and replay video.
I have been able to try a GoPro LCD BacPac for the last few weeks and it certainly has its advantages in certain conditions. If you are on the bank and filming then I think the LCD is a pretty good accessory to own. Or if the camera is used as a digital stills camera then I can also see that LCD BacPac has its place for framing pictures etc. However, if your GoPro spends most of its time on top of your lid then I don’t think that it would be a wise investment.
I have recently bought the wifi BacPac which promises to be able to stream live action from the camera directly to an iPhone or iPad. If the app is released soon I can’t personally see the need for the LCD BacPac.
