This is going to open up a few new doors to what you can do with the GoPro., but it does make that lens more prone to dust and scratches. Shouldn't be a huge deal for you non-sports GoPro users like Timelapse stuff or Steadicam Flying. Here's a video of Cinevate flying a GoPro on a custom stabilizer: http://vimeo.com/16013644. I bet they wished they had the LCD screen back then.

Whoa wait wait..I think they do have a rear casing to support the LCD BacPac into the water proof enclosure. Yup, it's all there. Now you can have your LCD underwater too.

BTW, did you know some folks actually sell Polarized and ND filters for the GoPro? Makes sense, especially on super bright days found here: GoPro ND and Polarized Filters

  1. I would like to buy a stabilizer for my go pro, I have seen cinevate and mini hague could work, which would you buy. Do you have Cinevate´s link to the stabilizer? I am having trouble finding it in order to see waht the price is.

    Thank You

    @Tekim - The GoPro might be light enough. Carl just posted a video on how he solved his GoPro steadicam solution.

    Hi Emm,

    Do you think this can work as a Elec. LCD View finder attached with the Zacuto Z Finder, i am not sure since I don't have or own one, not sure if there is a HDMI out put. I hope the output is 1080P!!

    Wondering Thanks

    oh regarding the ND/polarizing filters- be warned, they are just gels- NOT optically clear and if they have the slightest bend produce bands of distortion. I bought one and it is pretty much useless, there needs to be a slightly thicker alternative
