The GoPro HERO HD is an awesome little action camera. It’s so small, you can stick it anywhere and the quality is superb. I have been having a blast with them ever since I go my hands on one about a year ago. I am no extreme sportsman but I enjoy sticking them it all sorts of places to get some really cool shots.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the GoPro now the firmware has been fixed to give me 25p is the lack of LCD screen for lining up your shot. Now they have fixed this with their LCD bacpac. A simple clip on LCD screen that fits on the back of the GoPro clipping into their proprietary socket creating a nice perfect fit. They throw in 4 additonal back plate for your housings. A waterproof standard one, a non waterproof standard one, a waterproof wrist one and a non waterproof write one. All for just under $80.
Great price, great product and it really makes life a lot easier. You can also line up shot then turn off LCD and continue as normal therefore not draining the battery.
