One day only, Amazon has a nice price drop on the 1080p GoProHD Waterproof Camera. Although this is the original (not Hero 2), this version should have a firmware update allowing it to use the same Wi-Fi Remote Control via smartphone, tablet & computer as the Hero 2. Recent firmware on this Hero already allows it to use the LCD BacPac, Battery BacPac, and also compatible in the GoPro 3D video housing. The Hero 2 runs for about $300 dollars right now, so If you're looking to add more camera angles in your shots, now is the time to stock up on the original HD Hero POV camera.

You've probably already seen the video above, who hasn't? It's a great example of the capabilities shot on the GoPro HD Camera. One accessory that was recently released is the LCD BacPac and new firmware that opens up an entirely new world of features. From little things like losing the proper time/date when the battery is removed, to live HD video output. The new BacPac takes the guess work out of proper framing, and flying through the menu is a breeze compared to trying to decipher the old Mayan code on the front LCD. Video with Audio (yes with audio) can easily and instantly be played back to make sure you've got the shot.
If you've never seen the LCD BacPac in action, Olivia's review (below) runs through those 'must have' new features, and check out the SmallHD showing full HD live view from the little GoPro.
The LCD Bacpac comes with 4 different housing 'backs' from waterproof, waterproof for wrist housing, non waterproof housing, and non-waterproof housing for wrist mount. This amazing little camera performs equally well in the Sky, on the Streets, or even under water.

If you plan on using an External Monitor for some reason, don't go drilling holes through your Waterproof casing (like we did). GoPro has a special housing available for that also so you can run your video cables out to your External Monitor or maybe Asus Wi-Cast for some wireless HD Video Monitoring.
