Works fine but it often falls of the screw when tightening.
Excellent bit of kit – but easily scratched. . 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.

Great little tool but don’t pay this price for it for crying out loud (£23 at time of writing), buy the floating mini grab pole by gopro for £17 and you get it in the box. So save yourself £6 and get a floating mini stick into the bargain.
Item arraived as promised with 4 different backings, and worked first time with my gopro and the image is sutiable and there are enough settings to make it useable. A must if you are setting up difficult (or critical) shots. Or have an incompetent camera person who chops you in half during filming.
Really nice tool that works great with my gopro will all my accessories. It doesn’t look like you can get much leverage but it’s suprisingly good at tightening thumb screws. I tightened it as much as i could and couldn’t move it at all when i tried my hardest. Has really improved my gopro experience as i don’t have to worry about it wobbling all for £4. For those wondering this works perfectly fine with 3rd party thumb screws.
GoPro LCD Bacpac : Go pro lcd screen backpack. . Ok the lcd screen for the go pro hero camera. So firstly my purchase was great, priced as cheap as i could find anywhere, dispatched as quick as probably possible so i recieved it very quickly which is great. As for the screen, it’s great comes with all the back doors that you are likely to need and this one came with an extension arm so that the larger back to the camera could still articulate on any mount in the usual way. It’s great to be able to see what you are shooting, for framing but it makes the camera a lot more bulky having said that it is obviously detachable which means you can set up shots, with the camera in the case, with the small back door open, then detach the screen close the door and shoot away. That said it is easy to frame without the screen as most users know, but it gives that little bit of peace of mind when shooting somewhere or something that you might not see again. It’s a great addition to the camera, bit expensive but works great. Would i buy it again if i knew then what i know now?.
