Drift Ghost-S Action Camera

Ideal for the casual user and prosumer alike, the Ghost-S is the most powerful Drift camera to date – twice as powerful as its predecessor. Boasting a leading-edge processor, Sony CMOS sensor, plus 7-element aspherical lens technology, the Ghost-S is capable of 1080p at 60fps, 12MP stills and unprecedented low-light performance. The result is extraordinarily smooth, rich video in any condition. Best in class battery life (3.5 hours) means you can record more and worry less. A vivid 2" Corning Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant LCD screen further distinguish the Ghost-S from it's competitors. Simple and intuitive, yet packed with features, the easy-to-use interface provides access to a wide variety of user-adjustable settings including, bit rate, 10x digital zoom, resolution, frame rate, exposure, field of view and manual HDMI out. Paired with an updated rotatable lens, the Ghost-S places professional-caliber features at the fingertips of casual users.

Features:

  • 1080P FULL HD - NOT A SINGLE BIT LESS: Equipped with one of the most powerful chips on the market, the Ghost-S provides crystal-clear Full HD images and stunning 12MP photos. The resolution is individually adjustable and can be extended up to 1080p (with a frame rate of up to 60 fps)
  • NO ANGLES, NO SCREWS, NO STRES: A great advantage of the Ghost-S is its super easy assembling. The 300° continuously rotatable lens allows you to mount the camera in all conceivable positions, and yet still provides a straight image. So just plug the camera into the mount, set the lens and get started - no angles, no screws
  • DON'T MISS A SECOND: An integrated 2" LCD display (protected by Corning Gorilla Glass) gives your Ghost-S another big plus when it comes to handling. Using the display makes it easy to frame your desired shot (helpful when mounting the camera). It also offers you the opportunity to manage your recordings directly afterwards and makes navigating within the camera menus incredibly comfortable.
  • 3.5 HOURS - THE WHOLE NINE YARDS: You're tired from changing your battery all the time? Or have you once again lost a great shot? With the Ghost-S you can get these worries off your mind. A powerful 1700 mAh battery provides an extended recording time of 3.5 hours and makes your Ghost-S one of the most powerful models in its class
  • SIMPLE CONCEPT - MANY POSSIBILITES: The principle of the Drift 2-Way Remote is simple but effective: Use the two buttons (also easily operated with gloves) to start or stop recording, or control multiple cameras simultaneously via the "One-to-All "mode. Shoot photos even while recording a video, use video-tagging, or simply switch between all the different camera modes - the colour of the remote control’s LED indicator will show the current mode. By connecting the camera via radio frequency (instead of Wi-Fi), Drift does besides help you to save valuable battery-life
  • WATERPROOF - WITHOUT EXTRA HOUSING: The Drift Ghost-S does not only resist dirt and rain without any problems - it is completely waterproof to 3 meters (9 ft) without an extra housing. Want to dive deeper? No problem, just get yourself the optional waterproof case as soon as possible and take your Ghost-S up to 60m down under the sea level
  • WI-FI & DRIFT APP: Perfect for shot setup, recording, photo capture and playback on your mobile device (iPhone & Android)
  • FLASHBACK VIDEO TAGGING: Allows the camera to continuously record video, but only saving on ‘tagging’ important footage
  • CAR DVR MODE: The camera turns on when power is supplied via an USB port and records footage in a continuous loop style
  • ADJUSTABLE AUDIO: Allows you to adjust the microphone-sensivity as well as your camera's speaker volume
  • PHOTOBURST: Capture a burst of still images in 12MP for an allotted duration, at a frame-rate up to 10fps
  • TIMELAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY: Capture a series of still images at adjustable intervals and create spectacular time lapse recordings

Nice form factor
Way better on a helmet than a GoPro. You can have a microphone and USB power hooked up when you are recording. The Drift mic is extra.

Best Helmet/Dash Cam
I spent a lot of time picking an action cam to be my helmet cam/motorcycle dash cam. This is almost perfect.

The only issue I have is that when the cam is in dash cam mode (they call it DVR Mode), when the 12v power supply is turned off, the camera continues to record. You have to press the power button to wake it up, and then long press the same button to turn it off. It's *almost* completely automated. But you gotta remember to turn it off after every ride.

Great Helmet Cam
This is a great little helmet cam. I love the twisting lens, so no matter where I mount the cam, I can ensure that recording/playback happens correctly. I also really like the remote. I don't use it on my wrist, I actually velcroed it to my bike, but it makes starting, stopping, and taking a quick snapshot so much easier.

The cam comes with one flat and one curved mount as well.

My only issues with the camera is the supposed 3.5hour battery life. I get maybe 2 hours out of it. Also, the outside temp greatly effects the battery life. If it's anywhere near 100 out, that battery will be dead by the end of a 45min ride. All of the Helmet cams have this issue, so it's not exactly surprising, but I was really hoping to get closer to that 3.5hour battery life.

Quite disappointed! Didn't get what I paid for!
Bought this to replace my old ContourROAM. I use these cameras in timelapse mode to provide good editable footage and better quality stills than come from normal video. The main decider to my purchase of the Ghost after a lot of research was its specified ability to record timelapse with an interval of 0.5 seconds. Longer intervals creates jerky timelapse sequences.

Got it just prior to a two week adventure motorcycling trip. Set it up with RAM mount on the handlebars. Over several rides on some particularly nice (paved) roads the camera failed to deliver. It would stop working after varying periods while the remote continued to indicate that it was recording, still with plenty of space on the SD card and plenty of battery. It was necessary to physically turn the camera off then back on to reset it. NOT optimal when you're trying to record a ride on a twisty road through a forest, etc. Only at the end you find out that the camera stopped during the ride!

Drift Support noted that the 0.5s interval is very stressful for the cameras processor, and there's very little 'buffer' if anything goes wrong during the process of saving to the card. This is fine on a tripod, but for sports based shooting, they recommend that the 1s interval is a lot more stable. They also noted that the picture quality is lower when recording at 0.5 sec than at 1 sec, and recommended I use the 1 sec interval. Nowhere in my research did I come across this information and frankly would have probably made me consider other options such as the ContourROAM3, Sony Actioncam or similar which take fine photos at the 1 sec interval but are half the price.

The remote control is good but would benefit by having a detailed explanation of its various modes and how to use in the instruction manual. Some of its features, such as how to change mode on the camera I only found out by trial and error.

This model is about to be superseded by the 4K version but if it still has the same failure to perform to its specifications I would not recommend it for action sports or anywhere it is not used on a tripod.

Is this camera capable of loop recording? (as a security and insurance measure)
Benjamin F on Oct 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but the video can be a bit shaky.
Does this camera come with any mounting accessories out of the box?
HyunSoo D on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, It comes with a flat mount, a curved mount, and head mount bracket. It also comes with the wrist remote and a mic extension. But, it does not come with any MicroSD card.
Does the camera come packaged with an external microphone?
Jaret A on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. It comes with the option to attach one unlike the cheaper drift camera. You have to purchase one separately

I chose to get the drift external mic for about $20
And am very pleased with the results.
Does it have an external mic jack, and is the battery rechargeable?
Scott M on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes and yes.
Is the Ghost-S the newer (better) version of the Ghost camera?
