I've owned a number of Drift cameras over the past several years, and I've always been impressed, but they keep getting better. The Drift Ghost has been redesigned to be a much smarter, and much more versatile camera -- it's really an all-in-one package that gives you all you need to shoot action video and to get unique shots that you wouldn't try with a more fragile camera. I know that most people get these for the extreme sports and action shots - and I do use this for things I couldn't get otherwise - but as an amateur videographer and documentarian I find that the Drift cameras are useful for lots of other things. They're easy to mount anywhere on just about anything and with the remote control they are extremely flexible to go places I couldn't with a camera in my hand. I've mounted them on a 12' paint pole and stuck it up and out the window of my car, for example, or raised them high over my house. I've gotten POV shots for documentary, and stuck them on the hood of my car with a suction mount to get a shot of someone driving.

The new Ghost shares a number of features with the Drift HD, which was (rather: is) already an excellent and powerful action camera. It has the same form function, the same replaceable Gorilla Glass lens cover, that can be rotated around so you can mount the camera where you need to and still get the orientation you like. They both come with a wearable wrist remote, that allows you to start and stop recording or shoot photos without needing to touch the camera. Both have an LCD screen that allows you to see what you're shooting to be sure you're getting what you want -- that's a feature that has always made the Drift cameras stand out among action cameras. Both allow you to shoot HD video, various modes; time lapse and photos.

If you are like me, you have watched A LOT of those split view videos showing the GoPro VS Contour VS Ghost VS whatever. These things are expensive, so this was a tough decision. My main contenders being the GoPro Black, Contour +2, and the Drift Ghost.

On paper, the GoPro is superior but have you seen the reviews for that thing? That product appears to be a disaster in terms of firmware upgrades, battery life, and quality. I have absolutely no need for 4K or 1080P @ 60FPS. My computer would also explode if I ever tried to edit videos that large. The key advantages for the GoPro for my uses was the size and the video quality.

The Contour +2 was ruled out at the beginning because I needed a remote. The Contour +2 also didn't bring anything to the table other than the GPS feature, which was neat but not really needed for me since I track all my GPS data on my phone anyways.

I chose the Drift Ghost and couldn't be happier. It is extremely easy to use and the menu system is very intuitive. The online videos demonstrating the Ghost video quality do not do it justice. I was blown away by how good the videos looked. I didn't read any of the instructions and was off and recording videos in less than 5 minutes.

- Battery life. I absolutely needed at least 2 hours of run time. Based on the GoPro research, I would be lucky if I get 1 hour with the GoPro Black. I have been able to get 2.5+ hours with the Ghost so far. I see other reviews complaining about the battery. I have had no problems with mine after 2 months of use.

- Two-way remote, with easy to read LED lights. Unlike the GoPro which displays the modes in a little LCD screen, the Ghost has bright LEDs that light up. There is no question what it is doing if you look down at the remote.

02-01-2013... First off, I am not a review person, but since there is hardly much info on this action camera, I will tell you what I know and think. I would suggest that you download and read the complete OWNERS MANUAL for a detailed desciption of the camera and its functions. I did research all the top-of-the-line action cameras, and the GHOST was my final choice after reading and viewing the lot. I will say that expectations should be aimed at the fact that this is a small camera and not a big boy. I will update this for a while as I explore the camera.
The Drift is a product of the UK with an office in Colorado.
The camera is packaged nicely. The GHOST has a very nice rubber exterior which gives it a great feel. I got an extra Battery, Wall & 12V charger, External microphone, Handlebar mount, and extra Lens kit. I am using a sandisk 32gb class 10 micro SDHC, works super - no problems. Charged Batts - Updated firmware.
So far I have used this in low light conditions, as the weather has been overcast.
The menu system is great, as with anything else it takes time to familiarize yourself. Since I do not have iphone or eqiv., the LCD is very very nice. Just for handling and usings sake the LCD is great Shot setup, review, menu control, ect. When recording, the remote is the cats meow. It allows hands off control. It certainly lets you know what is going on by the lights. They are pretty bright and they flash.
The unit has 3 user presets. I am sure I will be using these in the future for faster control selection for different lighting conditions and set ups. I am amazed at the stil pictures. They are quite good for a little guy.
I have two computers, XP and Windows 7. The videos play immediately on windows 7, but need to be converted for XP.
