Do I need a GoPro LCD Bacpac?
One of the main reasons why the GoPro camera is so light and small is because it’s a minimalist camera – it’s designed to simply capture and record wide angle high definition photos and videos.

GoPro Helmet Mount Accessory
Over the last several years, GoPro has redefined the action camera and has created a wearable camera brand. If you’ve seen any of GoPro’s marketing and promotional photos, you’ll notice that one of GoPro’s signature photo comes from the view from the helmet.
Since the early days, mountain bikers and motorcyclist have found creative ways of strapping a point and shoot camera to their helmets using duck tape and glue. Today, mounts like the side arm mount, strap mount, or the arm mount enable enthusiasts to mount their GoPro camera securely to their helmets.
While each helmet mount carries the same purpose, each mount is specific to different application. The side arm mount provides stable and secure mounting on motorcycle and dirt bike helmets while the strap mount provides mounting for vented helmets like bicycle or climbing helmets. Similarly, the arm mount is perfect for mountain biking and sky diving helmets.
