    GoPro ALCDB-401 reviews

    LCD Touch BacPac is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 116.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go Pro LCD Touch BacPac by GoPro It's easier accessing the menus with this LCD BacPac but the only draw back is that the battery drains faster with it on. Also, if you purchased the battery BacPac like I did, you can't use it if you have this LCD BacPac mounted on the camera. Other than that, you are able to see what you are recording if you are not going to be in the frame. Myself, I use more the wi-fi to the GoPro with my cellphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BacPac for Hero 4 - Should have Purchased It Sooner ! I've had a Hero 4 for a couple of years. The setup menu on the Hero 4 was a major PAIN and probably was a psychological deterrent to using the camera more. I should have added the LCD Touch BacPac to the Hero 4 much sooner. The BacPac makes the Hero 4 an inexpensive camera update that provides that Hero 4 with one of the most appreciated features of the Hero 5 and 6 - easy setup and real-time viewing of the recorded image ! The only downside was that I had to purchase a new cage housing for the Hero 4, to accommodate the greater depth with the BacPac attached to the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have got over 40 eyes, you gotta get this. I got a Gopro 4 about six months ago. It has sat unused - because the LED window is so small I needed a lighted magnifying glass to make it out. Not real useful. Even with the wifi to smartphone app, you need to work with the LED to connect. My Sony AS100 was in this way vastly superior. With the Touch BacPac I can finally easilyget to the functions of the camera. It's a pretty decent viewfinder, but I still prefer to moniter and control with my cell phone - and now doing that is easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great add-on for ease of use The LCD Touch BacPac allows you to precisely frame your shot, which is especially nice feature since the camera doesn't even have a viewfinder. It is also nice when you are shooting video, as it allows you to view playback instantly without having to download first. Makes changing settings easier, although some of the areas near the edge of the screen aren't as sensitive as I would like them to be. Don't leave it on, because it will suck the life out of the battery real quick!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Only Need This To See What You're Shooting Who would have thought it would be so helpful to actually see the shot and the settings, quickly, and the ability to navigate the menus with a few light touches? Or to see how wide is Wide or Medium or Narrow? This is an essential addition to the Hero 3+. Can not understand why GoPro didn't include it from the start, instead of as an add-on. It does consume battery power twice as fast, so I bought a fast charger and two or three extra batteries, so two batteries can charge while continuing to shoot with the camera. The Hero 4 Silver has the touch screen LCD built-in and draws less power, is lighter weight and more compact. However, Hero 4 shuts the LCD off automatically after about 30 seconds, whereas this Hero 3+ add-on stays On while shooting. So, there are pluses and minuses with either, but I always prefer to actually see what I'm shooting ahead of time and the ability to quickly verify that settings have not changed while changing batteries, case options or mounting accessories or just powering down and back up. The included Thin Touch Screen protective shell back does not fit the Hero 3+ but fits the Hero 4 which already has the LCD built-in, which makes no sense and is disappointing. Another missed opportunity by GoPro to get it right the first time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty cool! i totally dig my bacpac... i bought a hero3 and this is exactly what it needed to put it over the top... i mean to have a touch preview screen on a go pro that has only a lens and no way of knowing what your set up looks like, is so beneficial... i can set up my shot with the bacpac and not guess and get great footage every time. comes in handy when mounting to a fence for my daughters softball games... Ive mounted a go pro and not had the bacpac on it and turns out i had it aimed too high... missed all the ground ball plays!!! this is a must have in my opinion.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great It definitely ads functionality to the GoPro! I like how easy it is to hook up to the camera and all of the different back door options that come with it. It has a fairly poor resolution, but for what it is for it works fine. The interface is clunky with room for improvement. Overall I would say it is a must have GoPro item and priced as such, could be cheaper. The unit is well built and has many nice features and accessories included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity for older eyes The LCD GoPro screen was impossible for me to see even with reading glasses. This is great and the touchscreen and plyback are really useful. could use an instruction sheet
