Dont know about any cams specifically, but 30fps is full motion.
I think the place they get you is that they may only sell the cam, you'll still need something to actually record to. When you're looking at that (the actual media recording/storage device) make sure it's something that uses a good compression codec, not something thats gonna smack all the quality out of the image/video.

Dayyyuumm, that's a serious camera! That's way too much to spend for me. Here's what I just bought on Ebay: http://eyespypro.com/products/Hi%2d...-World's-Smallest-Digital-Video-Recorder.html

I'm gonna velcro it behind the breath guard of my helmet. It's only 15fps though, but for $48 and super simple setup it's not bad. I wanted something to document on video in case someone cuts me off causing me to go down.
