First Look: Drift HD Ghost action cam isn't short on features

1:36 /

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.

Hey, there. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET and this is a look at the Drift HD Ghost Action Camera which sets itself apart from much of the competition by including thing's other brand sell as add-ons. For starters it has a 2-inch gorilla glass protected LCD and the body is waterproof down to 9 feet without requiring an extra casing. Its battery is good for up to 3 hours, but it is also removable so you can just throw another one in and then keep shooting. It also has built-in Wi-Fi for connecting to an iOS or eventually an Android device giving you a live preview and control over camera settings. That's good because while it's nice that you have these big buttons on top to control the menus, the system itself is a bit tedious to navigate. The included accessories are nice too such as the wireless remote for switching shooting modes between video, photos, burst shooting and time lapse and starting and stopping recordings. The lens rotates as well so you can adjust for different mounts that you're using. And lastly, it has a lot of recording options though I'd stick with the 1080p video. I noticed some aliasing artifacts and there's some low light noise but it's otherwise very good and considering all those camera offers. I doubt many will be disappointed. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Drift HD Ghost.
