    That’s cool it has the LCD
    But looks way inconvenient, and the mounting options don’t look so great.
    Just read the post you did about the new Replay XD1080. Looks like the better choice, and the quality in the embedded video looks great.

    Looks good but how does it handle less then perfect lighting conditions? Not every day is cloudless or perfect powder..

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Sato: the low light conditions are the best of the majors, including GoPro and Contour

    Sharkerio: I need to personally check out the new mounts, but the their old mounting were less than ideal. I can’t judge or comment on the Replay unit, as I have never used one, but the Drift is a pretty well pointed unit with superb video. Note, all 1080p is useless IMHO for mountain biking, the best is 720 at 60FPS followed by 960p.
