The long-awaited Drift HD 170 Action Camera has finally arrived and we have plenty of them in stock. Coming on the heels of the popular Drift X170 Action Camera, the new Drift features full 1080p HD functionality to give you the best possible quality when recording your bike in action.
We absolutely loved the functionality of the X170 and when the HD version of the Drift came out, we knew that it would compete head to head with the GoPro HD. We actually think the Drift HD has much better features and functionality, shooting the same quality but with much better sound.
Here's the list of the complete feature set for the Drift HD 170:
- Full HD for creating crystal clear footage
- A playback screen for lining up shots and the ability to play back the footage right away
- A strap mounted remote control to enable you to film what you want to record, not the boring stuff in between
- Easy to use mounts so you can use it whenever you want and mount it anywhere your imagination allows you. The shape of the camera and the mounts it comes with make it the easiest camera out there to use
- A rotating lens so you can mount the camera at any angle and any position to get that shot you are looking for
- It can take photos, put it in the photo burst mode and you can take pictures every few seconds for as long as your memory card lasts. If you don′t get a decent photo then you need to do something else or give the camera to someone else who can really use it
- You can pair the remote control to your camera, chances are your mates will have the same camera, no turning off their camera just before they hit the tree
- A zoom function so you can get even closer to the action or your friend in front
- An External microphone so no more listening to wind noise, great for in-car filming
- Night mode so you can record in darker and duskier conditions
The features of the Drift absolutely blow the GoPro out of the water. Though the image quality of the GoPro had people geeked, the interface was very difficult to operate and images in low-light were near impossible. This drew a lot of criticism from users of the GoPro.
The ease of use of the Drift, coupled with the remote control, and the exemplary quality are sure to make it a home run.
Stay tuned for a video review in the near future.
