    I haven't seen anyone with a GoPro on a stick or pole using the viewfinder, so really how important is it if you're not shooting macros?

    I'm one of those who uses a GoPro with a stick and use the viewfinder all the time. I can't imagine just shooting blindly.

    Yet, there's thousands of Paralenz videos on the net that look fine. It's a wide angle lens, point and shoot and you'll get the shot.

    Initially the GoPro also had no viewfinder. It was meant as a POV camera to give the viewer the view the person had. But if you're making any serious videos where you control what goes in it a viewfinder is essential. That's why they eventually added the viewfinder to the GoPro.
