On the Contour Roam 2 you need a computer to change the shooting mode.
In any head to head I've seen, the Drift looks like garbage. I can't remember if it was the 'HD Ghost' or the previous model though. I'd look into it before purchasing.
Of course, there's the Monoprice cam; which apparently has a build quality to match its $100 price. And it's on backorder. Still, I'd probably still get one of those before the Roam 2--at least you can change shooting modes in the field.
Cam people, *cough*Rick I*cough* any experiences or recommendations?
I know the GoPro is the 'gold standard' and has all the mounts; but what a dumb form factor. There's no way to unobtrusively mount the thing--and then you need the housing. If I wanted a hunk of polycarbonate hanging off my forehead I would have bought a helmet from Gath.
