Finally, after a long wait, the GoPro WiFi BacPac and Remote Control combo
kit is now available in Australia.
Unfortunately, what isn't available as yet, is the GoPro App to install on your
smart phone, tablet or iPod. That apparently won't be available until sometime
in Fall 2012... around late Spring or early Summer in Australia.
That said, it is still a very useful bit of gear, able to control up to 50 (yes,
FIFTY) GoPro HD HERO2 cameras. Of course, each camera requires its own WiFi
BacPac which you can buy separately.
As with all GoPro products, it comes with all you need...
GoPro Remote Control:
Wi-Fi remote control which has its own built in rechargeable Li-ion Battery
Remote charging cable with a snazzy little clip lock
Remote Attachment Key which snaps in the same way as the cable
Velcro attachment strap complete with GoPro branding tag
GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac:
The WiFi unit itself with menu screen
30cm USB Charging Cable
To use the Wi-Fi BacPac and remote control, you will need to download and
install CineForm. Its a 35 megabyte download which I find a bit over the top.
The program allows you to edit and convert video, as well as update firmware.
But if you have your own edit suite, its a big footprint for just keeping your
firmware up to date!
Anyway, both units (WiFi Bacpac and remote) come with some charge out of the
box, but its a good idea to charge them both up first.
You install the program (CineForm), then use the two supplied USB cables to hook
the two units up to your computer. CineForm will automatically detect their
IMPORTANT: Reboot your computer after software installation otherwise your
devices may not be detected.
You will also need to update the firmware on your GoPro camera.
The next step is to pair the WiFi BacPac with the remote control. This took a
bit of doing because CineForm repeatedly said the firmware was up to date, but
eventually we got there and the two paired up instantly.
So, to summarise the setup:
Update firmware on the camera, remote control, and BacPac
Follow the instructions to pair the devices
The remote works really well, with user settings displaying in the small LCD
screen. Once the App arrives, you will be able to stream video to your mobile
device, or even the Internet directly.
And lets not forget that it can control up to fifty individual cameras. This
will be great for those long stretches of boring road, for example, when you
want to turn off the camera to conserve power. Because, let's face it, 2 hours
use out of a camera is ridiculous and inconvenient - but the norm - for the
Reboot computer after installing CineForm
Update firmware on the camera, remote control, and BacPac before first

After charging remote control unit, make sure it is turned off - charging
seems to turn the unit on
The WiFi BacPac has its own battery, but it will start to drain power
from the camera's battery after its own is depleted, so ensure all units are
fully charged before use
The body of the WiFi unit itself is smaller than the LCD BacPac and the
Battery BacPac, so it is recommended that you to use the supplied (thinner)
