The Drift, looks interesting, 170Deg lens, 1080p, but only 30fps, is it water proof? same weight as GoPro in the case, somewhere around 5.5oz. The shape would be easier to mount on planes, price point not any cheaper. test would tell how it measures up but a good camera to play with! Wander how sensitive their CMOS is to vibration, that would be very important, GoPro was much better then the Sony Webbie I tried in that respect.

Re: Hero Gopro Lens Mod

I swapped out the ragecam lens with a Sunnex lens. It worked out very well. Here is some raw footage with the Sunnex lens.
