Rated4out of5byDivigationfromMakes the GoPro a full video cameraI bought this to allow me to use the GoPro as a more normal camera in non-outdoor sports uses. I use my GoPro to record climbing videos most of the time and the LCD help you frame shots without pulling out the phone and pairing and going through all of that business. The screen is very response for a camera touch screen (not responsive if comparing it to your phone). Solid peace of gear that includes a nice case when you aren't using it and different backs for when you are.

Rated5out of5byklubeskifromGreat to see what you're shooting!!!It came with multiple attachments. I've used it under water, surfing, in the car at 80mph, in off road vehicles, and on my BMX bike. It's very easy to use, light weight, and durable!!!

Rated2out of5byMr DividendfromBring an extension cord.Poor touchscreen sensitivity with the back cover on. Difficult for adult sized hands to navigate menu buttons. Will drain the battery very quickly.
Save your money, buy the battery BacPac and use the GoPro app on your smartphone to set up shots.

Rated4out of5byraycv322fromBecomes a Compact cameraThis camera became my everyday "stealth" point and shoot. It comes with a hard case and even when attached to the gopro, it fits easily in to my pocket.
No more guessing... Both wide and narrow shots became very easy to frame!
This would be 5 stars if the touch screen was more sensitive, like a smartphone.

Rated4out of5byPeter WGfromA necessary accessoryThis is the closest thing you're going to get to having a viewfinder so I recommend it highly for setting up the shots and utilizing the touch interface. The interface is easier and quicker to use than the buttons for quickly selecting modes especially in Protune mode. That being said, I usher caution when using the "Waterproof" Touch Backdoor tht comes with the LCD screen. After being submerged in about five inches of water (Their site says good up to 9 feet) for six seconds water did leak into the casing. Luckily it was not a great deal of water, and the camera was unaffected but it did still get in. I was a bit hesitant trying this backpack but didn't have time to change to the non-touch waterproof backpack. Either way, it doesn't change my view on the product, it looks awesome just avoid that specific backdoor with the unit.
