Drift Ghost Action Camera
I use this camera for turkey and waterfowl hunting, the clarity is absolutely perfect! The sound is a little soft but I took care of that with an external mike. the only issue I see with it is that on 75% to full zoom the picture is grainy. I use a 1/3 zoom which seems to be more like normal vision at a reasonable range. Remember it is not a $3,000 camera. I love the remote controll. I recomend this camera as a close action video camera, which is what it is really built for. I researched and used 5 or 6 cameras and I recommend the drift ghost at the top of the list.

I've been using the Drift Ghost everyday ever since I got it. I love practically everything about it. The bullet like profile is great to mount on your helmet without it sticking out like a sore thumb. The Two way remote is great for on the go rides and you can tell what mode the ghost is in by the blinking LED (also whether it's recording or not). Comes in a tough casing and strong gorilla glass. For the price though, I wish it came with the external microphone. Without it, when mounted to my helmet, it would catch some really loud and horrible wind noise (even when the mic sensitivity is turned all the way down). The tagging feature is great, something the GoPro Hero3 doesn't have. And the battery life is almost 3 hours long. The video and picture qualities are great and very clear. The buttons are fairly easy to press even with gloves on. I love the rotating lens feature. I can mount and position the camera anyway I want it.
The only gripe about the drift ghost that I have is that, I wish it was able to record in 1080P @ 60fps and 720P @ 120fps like the GoPro Hero3 Black. Hopefully, it'll be able to do that with the next model.

Stupidly easy to set up and use
It was a tough choice but I went with the ghost over the gopro black for a few reasons. One, it has a screen that you don't have to buy separately which makes setting up the shot and navigation of the menus and options a breeze. Two, the rotatable lens, so no matter where you mount it for that sick shot you can always rotate the lens to level out the picture straight. Three, the battery life is the best and not even out of the two I was considering but out of all of the bigger name action cams out right now (Sony, Contour, GoPro, Ghost) with the gopro black last out of all of them. Not that any of them would last you a full day of continuous shooting but its nice to have that extra time. Four, the tagging feature that lets you continually record up to your last 5 minutes of riding time with out actually having the camera recording. This can let you save those unexpected things that happen that you always wish you had on film but you weren't recording yet or you just stopped recording or just really only save the highlights of your ride without having to sift through the boring stuff in between, which will stretch your already class leading battery even longer. Even in worst case you are in a accident you can press that tag button and have video proof of what happened. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because I felt they should have kept up and had a 120fps at 720p like the gopro black. The ghost still can do 120fps it's just in WVGA which is 480 I believe, so I probably will not be using that frame rate setting. All in all the Ghost is the better camera for what I need, still great video quality with plenty of options that are extremely easy to navigate and something that you can set up and start recording without it being a pain, at all. Literally I've never touched a drift camera before and I had it out of the box set up with my settings and recording within 10-15 minutes without looking at any instructions, it's that easy! I'll update this when I have some more video time in on it, so who knows I may still give it that 5 stars after all. So if you're considering it, do it you won't regret it. Oh and one more thing.......Get Out There>> Haha
