60fps is nice just for regular video as well. 30fps is a holdover from the old NTSC 29.97 video standard.

Real slo-mo is shot in far faster than 60 fps.

That's far from a make or break for me.

I'll take the lack of 60 fps, that's hardly noticeable to the untrained eye, for all the pros of the Roam.

To my knowledge none of the cameras shoot 60fps in 1080p

I was stoked about the roam until I saw no 720p 60Fps , I mean seriously a sports\pov camera without a replaceable battery and 60fps?!?!?!?!?

To bad great price and I like the on\off switch but those 2 things are a HUGE deal breaker for me :-(

Woh I just took a look at the new drift, very very nice.

2 Huge Pluses

External battery option

For an alternate opinion, I bought the Drift X170 (predates the HD version) and was initially happy. Coming from a DIY helmet cam setup and then a GoPro, I really like the ease of use, remote, and LCD screen although the X170 ate batteries.

The only reason I wouldn't go with Drift again is because of customer support. My video continually had periodic black flashes (like an exposure issue) and while my initial contact with Drift received a response, they pretty much ignored me after that and my problem was left unresolved. I sent them snippets of raw video to examine, and played around with different exposure settings and such, but all I got was one response telling me to upgrade my firmware (which didn't fix the issue).

To some this may seem petty but I had hours of epic backcountry video from Rogers Pass and Revelstoke that I can't do anything with. Admittedly I can't blame Drift for that as I should've tested the new firmware before heading out. However, I can hold to the fact that they didn't support me and left me with a useless camera system.

It is great to see more offerings on the sports camera front though, and I'm sure we'll see improvements and more innovation each year.
