Does the WiFi backpack chew up much power?
Phil - I got the mic off of Amazon.
The WiFi backpac has it's own battery, so it doesn't affect the GoPro2 that much. Seems like I can do a four-hour drive, intermittently
using the Wifi packpac and wrist-mounted control, without a recharge problem. In late August, GoPro is supposed to release the iPhone app which will negate the need for LCD because you'll be able to stream live video from the WiFi backpac direct to the smartphone for visual cues. In this case, I also picked up a skeleton case and their cigarette-lighter->dual USB plug so that it can be powered. (doing a ///M3 drive to Big Bend National Park next week)
