GoPro ships $80 LCD accessory for 1080p cameras
GoPro, maker of the Hero series of wearable cameras, has now announced the release of the LCD BacPac add-on. It attaches to the back on GoPro 1080p cameras and will allow users to view what they're shooting without guessing. GoPro is calling the LCD screen the first in a line of expansion modules for the cameras.
It attaches using the HERO Port expansion connection and allows for playback of videos. The LCD ships with four new housing backdoors that attach to the waterproof housing and the HD Wrist housing. The new doors accommodate the LCD BacPac, which adds some heft to the GoPro camera.
While screen size isn't divulged, the BacPac sports a single button and allows for power, fast forward, fast reverse and photo playback control. The BacPac also integrates a speaker and volume.
The BacPac is now available for $80.
