Why should you get a GoPro LCD Touch BacPac?

If you need to review video, or setup the camera for the situation you are in then the LCD Touch Bacpac will prove invaluable, once you've used if for awhile you will wonder how you ever managed without it.

The ability to check what you are shooting while on location means that you'll have a lot less wasted footage to wade through when back home or in the studio, this will make editing a much more pleasurable experience and enhance the overall experience of the GoPro camera.

The LCD Touch screen will also allow you to control the camera's settings much more easily, no more scrolling through the beeping menu via two buttons (which can be a frustrating experience), the camera is now much easier to use and much more akin to a true miniature HD Camcorder.
