Drift Ghost-S is an excellent all-in-one action cam

 

The Drift HD Ghost was a very good POV camera, and the Ghost-S is basically that camera with improved battery life and performance. What's not to like about that?

The waterproof ; gives you a lot of action cam for your $399, with a built-in 2-inch LCD and Wi-Fi; a nice bundle of accessories including a wireless remote; and a long battery life. You also get a broad set of shooting options for normal and...

The back hatch, covering the battery and microSD card slot among other things, is tough to remove. Also, the menu system, while easy to understand, can be a pain to navigate.

Long battery life, solid video quality, and a great all-in-one design make the Drift Ghost-S tough to beat.

Drift Ghost-S review

 

Drift Innovation already had a good thing going with its Drift HD Ghost action cam. So perhaps it's best that its newest camera, the Ghost-S, concentrates on performance enhancements.

This is a must have helmet camera.

 

I have been using this camera for MotoVlogging, coupled with the wireless remote and optional microphone. As a system, this works particurlary well. The camera is able to capture HD in various formats and speeds. It's low profile design is way ahead of...

Great Camera, way better than gopro.

 

Under water, in the air, on the bicycle, or at the end of a stick, this camera looks great, without the 'go pro' distortion standard.

Good and Bad

 

For skiing this camera has exposure stepping issues. Meaning it can't decide if the scene is bright or dark, so as a result the recording flickers in sort of a strobe effect. Drift customer service has been advising they are working on a software fix...

Drift Ghost

 

These Drift cameras are amazing. Bulletproof remote control, amazing video quality. This is the 3rd Drift I own. The others are still perfect after nearly 3 years and over 30,000 miles of vibration, heat and abuse. I use only a Pedco clamp on mount to...

The best for use for any action !!!

 

This camera is fantastic! Much better than the GoPro Hero 3+junk , which greedily sells all of the features that come standard in the Ghost-S as accessories, which you can't even use at the same time, because they come in the form of Back-Pac...

awkard

 

This is only a stunt camera. It should not really be used to film anything that you'd like to see while you film it. I am used to old fashioned cameras with a viewfinder and such. Even just a screen. The positioning of this screen on this camera makes...

Everything you need in ONE camera!

 

The Drift Ghost-S camera blows competition out of the water. After doing heavy research I found that this model met all my required needs! So many features from built in screen, remote control, photo burst and stunning video footage, I would highly...
