Drift Ghost Action Camera 3.8 5 8 8
Great quality Love this camera, it has great quality video, surprising audio quality even at highway speeds, and I love that it does 60 fps in 720 mode. The only problem I have with it is that the only mounting options included with the camera are two sticky mounts. After accidentally knocking the camera off my helmet once at a red light, I bought the handlebar mount. As much as I love this camera, I don't trust $300 worth of equipment mounted on a 50 cent sticky mount. March 9, 2015
Stay away from SanDisk Memory Cards and you'll be set The Drift Ghost has been pretty decent other than a few quirks such as compatible memory cards, rocking a Kingston which has been reliable so far, and some issues with the camera freezing up on me. Just a note, after turning on the camera, wait a few seconds before pressing the record button. The camera needs to detect the memory card fully and checks to see if it's a high speed memory card installed. I have been not experienced any issues with my memory card or camera when doing the preliminary 'wait for the camera to do its thing.' If you like to shoot at night however, upgrade to the Drift ghost-s for better low light performance. September 2, 2014
A well thought out product I changed over from a gopro to this drift for motovlogging and i am pleased with the change. This is a much better thought out product. I feel that the quality of image is slightly better on the gopro, but the overall package is much better with the drift. There is 3x the amount of battery life with this cam vs the gopro, it has a mic input instead of an adapter that fails. The screen and menues are a little easier because they don't use abreviations for the menue, it tells you what you want to change. I like it and will continue to use drift products untill gopro brings back out a cam with a mic input. July 21, 2014
Defective, camera issues and manufacturer poor support My Ghost had an immediate SD card issue when it first arrived. After consulting with DRIFT tech support, they advised I download a program for SD formatting. This solved my problem for all of 3-4 camera cycles. Once every 3-4 camera power ons, the SD card will be corrupted and requires the same re-formatting. After about 20 times of this, my Ghost actually started freezing all footage at approx 6-10s into filming, yet accruing all the data space. After contact tech support yet again, I was told that I would have to personally procure shipping and incur costs to send their defective camera back to them. Once I paid the way for MY camera, they would then send one back (offering to give me accessories worth the cost, which I don't need since I have all the accessories I need). If DRIFT is at all trying to be compatible with GoPRO, they really need to step up the customer service, as well as proper product handling. I could tell my camera was a new-refurb upon opening the rear hatch.. there was paint chipping visible, upon further inspection I noticed it in other places on the exterior. I didn't mind too much as long as it worked. When someone pays full value for a product, they expect it to be new and work properly.. not used and defective. The cost for a GoPRO might be a little more, but save yourself the headache for poor support in the event that you have any issues. October 30, 2013
Warning on New Car DVR Feature (in Firmware v2.1.6.64) Okay, this is not so much a review as a warning. The Car DVR feature will delete ALL files on the device, including non-DVR files. I lost all files created in regular video mode when I left the Car DVR setting on and plugged the device to my iMac via the USB cable. It didn't hit me that the camera automatically started recording. And that would have been okay if it only deleted the DVR files. But when I went to review the regular video I had recorded previously, I didn't see them. Instead, all I saw were DVR files filling up the entire 32 GB memory card. July 18, 2013
OVER ALL 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. May 1, 2013
Great features! 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. March 18, 2013
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 February 4, 2013

April R: Lots of good reviews online. I like to take video while I am in my vehicle just in case I am involved in an accident (not happened thankfully) but I am prepared. I record video while I am on my road bicycle with a contour camera. I was not a fan of the contour due to the rattle noise it picks up in videos. I have successfully used that bicycle footage for a hit and run accident I was involved in a few years ago and thankfully the driver was caught due to the video. Oct 14, 2014

robert f: Comes with one batt, no SD card Sep 25, 2013
Reply to robert Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Ryan J: As robert said, you'll have to purchase the micro SD class 10 card. 16 gb is about perfect for the life 1 standard battery, ideally ~23 or so GB would be a full charge (at 720p 60fps). I had issues with my ghost not recognizing the SD card and not being able to configure wifi for that reason.. If you come across this issue, just let me know here and I'll refer you to the fix (not available on Drift's site, but working with one of their CS reps will eventually get you this) Sep 26, 2013
