The Drift HD Ghost Action Camcorder supports Full HD 1080p, HD 960p, HD 720p and SD WVGA resolution video, as well as high-resolution still image capture. Plus, the camera is equipped with Wi-Fi for communicating with smartphones via the Drift Mobile App, which will be available for both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can use the Wi-Fi connectivity to preview and line up shots remotely, snap photos and playback footage directly through your mobile device. You can also transfer video footage to your smartphone or tablet for immediate uploading to the Web including YouTube and other social media sites.
The Drift HD Ghost features a wearable remote control that can be mounted to your wrist. The remote is equipped with two LED indicators that clearly communicate which mode (video, photo, time-lapse or photo-burst) the camera is set to. You can use the remote to turn the camera on and off, start/stop recordings, change function modes and more. The remote has a range of up to 30-feet. Another highlight of the HD Ghost is the PowerStation battery, which supports three hours of recording time per charge. The battery is also located in the center of the camera, which enhances battery life and helps to reduce camera shake.
The camera also supports Drift's unique Video Tag/Loop function, which lets you save a recorded event up to five minutes after you've shot the footage. The footage is recorded in a continuous loop style and the clip is stored on the camera's memory, but it isn't saved until you actually "tag" it. The HD Ghost also has a large 2" Gorilla Glass LCD screen that affords easy playback and menu navigation. Plus, it will remain scratch-free thanks to the durability of the Gorilla Glass protective panel.
Drift outfitted the HD Ghost with their Pure Audio Technology as well. The microphone features digital and mechanical modulation technology for improved digital signal processing and wind-noise reduction. The mic also supports multiple sensitivity settings. Plus, there's a 3.5mm microphone input for connecting an external mic. Other features include a seven element lens and a waterproof construction that makes the camera impermeable down to a depth of 9' (3 m). There's a waterproof housing available as well (sold separately).
