Drift HD Ghost

Excerpt: With a 300-degree rotating lens, two-way remote control and LCD screen, the Drift HD Ghost comes prepared to go to work. By far the biggest camera we tested, the Ghost’s lens is the device’s best feature, built from Drift’s patented “Gorilla Glass” and adjustable to compensate for unleveled mounting. With size comes perks like the built-in LCD screen, offering users a intuitive menu and easy framing of shots.
Excerpt: With a 10x optical zoom and a built-in two-inch LCD screen, the Drift HD Ghost sounds like a great option on paper, especially if you know you’ll want to check out the results while you’re still in the Great Outdoors. But as you’ll see from our group test above, its video quality just doesn’t quite cut it against the mighty GoPro.
Drift HD Ghost is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink action cam

Summary: 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.
Pros: The Drift HD Ghost packs in all the features competitors charge extra for, like a built-in LCD and Wi-Fi; it's waterproof without requiring a housing; a wireless remote is included; it has a mic jack for an external mic; its battery life is very good, and the battery is removable.
Cons: The camera menu system, while easy to understand, can be a pain to navigate; video is very good, but is not without issues; and, as with many cameras, you'll have to supply your own microSDHC card for storage.
Summary: While we generally prefer the video quality from the Contour+2 and GoPro Hero3 cameras, the Drift Innovation HD Ghost has a lot to recommend it, not the least of which is nearly double the battery life. When you're far from an outlet -- which is often the case when using an action cam -- the last thing you want to worry about is running out of juice.
Pros: Pros:, Lens rotates, Multiple shooting modes, Wrist remote, Lets you change field of view, Excellent battery life, Robust iOS app
Cons: Bulky design, Waterproof case not included, So-so video quality
Excerpt: Fazit: Die Drift Innovation HD Ghost behauptet sich im Test als insgesamt gute Action-Kamera mit erstaunlich langer Akkulaufzeit. Bildqualität und Ausstattung liegen dagegen nur im Mittelfeld. Dafür ist die HD Ghost auch ohne Zusatzgehäuse recht robust.
Pros: Wasserdicht ohne Extra-Gehäuse, Sehr lange Akkulaufzeit, Fernbedienung inbegriffen
Cons: Bildrauschen, Hell-Dunkel-Wechsel langsam, Eigengewicht etwas hoch
