GoPro WiFi kit and remote + LCD bacpac

After the long wait I finally got the GoPro Hero2 LCD bacpac. Not only that, I also got the WiFi and remote kit!

The LCD bacpac makes it easier to compose and preview shots on the camera. This makes my GoPro just like a smaller, compact full HD video camcorder.

The WiFi and remote kit is the accessory that blows my mind. According to the specs sheet the WiFi remote can:

  • Control up to 50 cameras at a time from up to 600’/180m in optimal conditions
  • Enjoy full camera control, including On/Off, Shutter and Settings control
  • LCD screen mirrors your camera’s LCD status screen
  • Attachment strap, key ring, and charging cable included
  • Wearable and waterproof to 10’/3m

The Wi-Fi BacPac attaches to your GoPro camera, enabling long range remote control (600’/180m in optimal conditions) when used with the Wi-Fi Remote. To Wi-Fi enable multiple GoPro cameras, Wi-Fi BacPacs can be purchased individually.

I was also able to use my iPad as a camera controller with the full preview of what I’m shooting! All it took was installing the free GoPro app downloadable from the iTunes store and voila! Instant Scorcese/Jerry Bruckheimer/Steven Spielberg!

Here’s a demo video of the GoPro remote and WiFi kit.
