Drift Innovation HD Ghost

 

The Drift Innovation HD Ghost is a unique action camera with a rotating lens, but while video quality is good you can get better in this price range.

Crisp, detail-rich video footage. Built-in LCD monitor. Useful rotating lens. Does not require separate waterproof housing

Pricey. Limited mounting options. Does not shoot 1080p60

Action cameras come in all shapes and sizes, but all feature the same basic fixed wide-angle lens. That's where the Drift Innovation HD Ghost ($399 direct) differentiates itself from the pack, with a unique rotating lens element that allows you to...

Drift HD Ghost action camera review: Everything-but-the-kitchen-sink action cam

 

There's no shortage of options when it comes to action cams, but Drift Innovations' Drift HD Ghost manages to differentiate itself with design and features.

The Drift HD Ghost packs in all the features competitors charge extra for, like a built-in LCD and Wi-Fi; it's waterproof without requiring a housing; a wireless remote is included; it has a mic jack for an external mic; its battery life is very good,...

The camera menu system, while easy to understand, can be a pain to navigate; video is very good, but is not without issues; and, as with many cameras, you'll have to supply your own microSDHC card for storage.

With Wi-Fi, an LCD, and a waterproof body, as well as some nice accessories, the Drift HD Ghost uses its features to beat back the action cam competition.

Review: Drift HD Ghost Action Camera

 

The other strap-it-on-and-get-rad cameras out there are all pretty sick in their own right. But for ease of use, no POV camera is sicker than...

Simple out-of-box use. Battery lasts about three hours. Waterproof to 9 feet without a case. Intuitive smartphone app interface. Awesome remote you can strap to your wrist, or anywhere. Rotating lens lets you position it pretty much anywhere on your...

Heavy. Multicolored LED lights aren’t great for us red/green colorblind folks. Pricey — Sony’s camera is less expensive

Drift Innovation HD Ghost Review

 

While we generally prefer the video quality from the Contour+2 and GoPro Hero3 cameras, the Drift Innovation HD Ghost has a lot to recommend it, not the least of which is nearly double the battery life. When you're far from an outlet -- which is often...

Pros:, Lens rotates, Multiple shooting modes, Wrist remote, Lets you change field of view, Excellent battery life, Robust iOS app

Bulky design, Waterproof case not included, So-so video quality

Drift HD Ghost

 

The action and adventure camera market is hot, with photographers and adventurers recording their exploits on ski slopes, at the race track, on the water, or in the urban jungle. The Drift HD Ghost is a solid camera packed with features, such as 1080p...

Solid build; great daytime video quality; good audio

Menu; Micro SD card; low-light performance; exposed lens

The Drift HD Ghost is an interesting camera because its strong suit, the design, is also its Achilles heel. The lens is completely exposed, so you risk damaging it when filming anything where debris is involved. To protect the lens, you need to buy the...

Drift Innovations HD Ghost

 

The Drift HD Ghost offers a lot of value as a mid-level action camcorder. Learn more in our review.

It offers premium features, such as a color screen and excellent battery-life, at a price that is affordable

This device has fewer frame-rate and resolution options than the new wave of action cams

While it doesn't offer the latest and greatest resolution and frame-rate options, the Drift HD Ghost represents a good value in an action camera.

Drift HD Ghost

 

With a 10x optical zoom and a built-in two-inch LCD screen, the Drift HD Ghost sounds like a great option on paper, especially if you know you'll want to check out the results while you're still in the Great Outdoors. But as you'll see from our group...
