    So… Gimmicks and a clunky GoPro copy?

    • Not a troll

      I wouldn’t exactly call a built-in LCD, variable angle lens, and more aerodynamic design “gimmicks”. Certainly not a copy. There are a lot of things you could say about any other company trying to gain market share on the undisputed most popular POV cam of our day. But with respect to Drift, “gimmick” makes sense only if you’re a troll.
