strap used at 2:21

And because it's shorter and 1080P has the widest 170* field of view, you see more of the riders face.

A few review sites got pre-production units, and they had issues, which we have resolved for production. The easy fix is a firmware update.

Theres something about the saturated look you get with the go pro that makes everything look awesome.

Let me know how you like it because I am torn and about to pull the trigger on the Roam. The price is great. But I really like this Drift HD too.
