i know there has been posts about this before, but i dont care. im buying one soon. so..I plan on doing motovlogs, and recording overall riding footage. and the big dilemma is which one to pick. the only things shying me away from the gopro is no lcd screen to line up shots, and you have to buy a different case to use a microphone, etc, and all the accessories are expensive as hell. the drift seems like the better option for vlogging and stuff, but when it comes to actual footage, the gopro seems to be the way to go. so if anyone could help me out that would be great! thanks in advance for anyone who helps.

You might wanna lookup "shockofgod" on youtube & see what he uses. I'll see a random screenshot & think it's a video I wanna watch only to find out :doh: it's one of his again. He makes tons so he should offer some info.

^ I cannot watch any of that guys videos. Too many pop ups and he gets soooooooo off topic. Most of the video has nothing to do with motorcycles

I own the Drift HD170 Stealth, you can watch some vids on my channel if you wish. I like it very much. I'm no professional, so the lighting and quality issues are fine with me, I think the camera is great, also because of it's shape. The GoPro looks a bit weird sticking off your helmet but the Drift looks OK, and also it is very strong, it can take a good knock. And it has a remote, which is helpful. I'm pretty sure you will be happy with either one though.
