    Thanks somewhat to an online tutorial video (which could definitely use serious improvement to more clearly describe the installation process) and after several failed attempts to install the software and LCD, I was finally able to get the camera working again. I had to remove the battery a couple of times because the software would hang indefinitely when I attached the LCD. It's now working just fine. HOWEVER, the BacPac interferes with some of the mounts, specifically, the chest mount. You cannot rotate the camera to the level position because the BacPac blocks this. It's great if you want shots of the ground from the chest mount. Although, you wouldn't necessarily to have the BacPac installed for chest mount use, it's a pain to have to remove it, store it somewhere, and re-install it for different shots. Overall, I would still recommend the BacPac.

    I was very impressed by the good service at the store in NY. The person who served me was very smart and new the American name for my Canon Legria, which is the European name. I was very surprised how he picked up items under the desk seconds after entering my request into the compture.

    Concerning the LCD back, it took me a while to figure out that on one of the waterproof boxes the button for LCD is on the wrong side. The other buttons are also stiff so it´s a bit clumsy to use the box. But it´s very good to have the camera in waterproof box. The LCD screen works fine. - First I thought that there was something wrong with the video file because it played too slow or stoped on my computer. The I found out that it was because I was using the Dell Auto-Air AC traveling adapter. When I unpluged it the video played fine.

    Comments about GoPro LCD BacPac:

    I took my GoPro on a dive trip, and the LCD screen was very helpful in framing shots and making sure that the creatures I was following were in my screen. I was also happy that the fogging in the housing that some people noted was not a major problem in 79 degree water. Initially, I did have some fogging, but not on the lens. That was reduced to almost nothing when I added a bit of a cut up ShamWow cloth around the camera. That is a better option than the $15 inserts sold by GoPro. I did have some problems with the screen and the camera not being in sync and having one on and one off. I could always work around them, but they may be more of an issue with the camera than with the screen. On our dive boat, there were 6 people with GoPros, and all had occasional problems with the camera freezing or doing things that were not expected. Some of that was user error, but not all. I did discover that although the battery life bar looked good, that if it was a bar down from full, that I needed to change the battery. So, after each dive, no matter how much I used the camera (most times it was quite a lot), I changed to a fresh battery. Still, this is a great little camera, and it is made better with the LCD screen. Just have extra batteries, and change them out frequently.

        If you've ever messed up a shot on your GoPro because you couldn't see what you were shooting this is an abesolute must! If works perfectly and it comes with many different backs for every situation. I just wish I had bought before I went swimming with sea turtles in Hawaii because I really messed up on those shots and videos!

            my company uses a Gopro often in shoots for a wide overall view of the studio and the shoot action. The backpac LCD allows us to get the shot we want quickly and without checking shot on a digital device. It's auto shut-off conserves battery and with one button push you can check to see your shot hasn't changed. $ is a great investment.

              I love my gopro and now with the LCD Bacpac, it's even better. I tried using the app to see what the camera is shooting, and when your holding the camera the lag is to slow with the app. Plus it's difficult to hold a phone and the gopro, plus focus your attention on what you filimg. With the LCD it turns the gopro into a regular camcorder so you see exactly what your shooting and all the camera movement. I have not found any cons to this add on yet and would definitly recommend it.

              Makes it easy to update settings and of course see what you are shooting. The battery drain is the only problem and makes this almost useless for me. My fully charged battery goes dead within 20 minutes using this device. I was going to send it back but have decided to keep it.

                The one drawback the gopro cams have is a lack of a viewfinder or screen. I've been able to use the wifi but it isn't allways applicable. The LCD screen makes framing the shot easy and uses less of the battery than the wifi. This is a must have for the gopro cams.

                                I've only used it around the home so far, because Old Man Winter moved in! It certainly works as advertised and will definitely come in handy. It's easy to set up and use. I haven't checked how fast it will eat up battery power, but since it can be set to auto-off, that's no big thing.

                                I would like to see GoPro make a cable so the LCD BacPac could be mounted remotely. I go dirtbiking with my family and ride out in front so I can get videos of each person by having the camera pointed backwards. With a remote video screen, it would be a lot easier to see where the camera is pointed so I could keep them in the frame more.

                                        This is something that should be standard on all GoPro product. Now it's much easier to keep the subject framed and completely eliminates guessing.

                                          Before this attachment, I would miss shots that were dire to the production set. Imagine knowing exactly what you need is being sent for the post-process portion of filming; the editing. I recommend this product for any person with a GoPro as it truly exempliefies the power of the original product. The LCD screen is a great size and the attachments are user-friendly.

                                                  Nice addition to the GoPro. You are able to actually see what the capture will look like. You can more acurately frame the exposure so less cropping is necessary. It does not however immediately show your photo exposure, you have to go to the menu to playback.
