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.
Yeah, but really - how often do you change modes during a session? I put the Roam2 on the lines, turn it on and ride till my legs give out. I'm there to ride, not fiddle with HD modes or turning the camera on and off to get the perfect shot
