The Drift HD170 action camera is arguably the most feature-rich hands-free video camera on the market. It's loaded with features that many of its high definition predecessors lack - like an LCD screen for lining up the perfect shot and an RF remote to shoot shorter clips, saving precious storage space, batteries and edit time. In fact, the Drift HD170 is the world's first full HD wearable action camera with integrated LCD screen and wireless remote control. The Drift HD170 offers a 170 degree field of view. The ingenious thing about a 170 degree field of view is that the camera captures your peripheral vision, giving a realistic perspective of speed. The Drift HD170's intuitive operation makes it easy to use. And your Drift HD170 includes multiple mounting options that would cost $75 when purchased separately through other manufacturers. When it comes to features, value, and high quality resolution, the Drift HD170 is impossible to beat!

Pros: Color LCD screen, remote control, mounting accessories, protective/non slip outer, lens rotation, 1080/720 HD quality, exposure settings, rca/usb connections, zoom capable at 720
Cons: Could be lighter/smaller (but not a deal breaker), nite shot helps(low lux) but not great, sensitive/unstable picture taking (but dont need it for that)
Battery lasts about 4hrs. No complaints on stabilization (no stabilization function) since everything is shot at wide angle. Highly recommended for Action Sports/Outdoors enthusiasts whos needs video on the move. You will need to go up 5x the price to get anything better than the Drift HD170.
I use 1080 but the resolution seems not clear as other HD camcorder but this is best quality available in Helmet Cam. I think if you want anything better you are looking are over $1000.
The LCD display and remote are excellent features and also it can do time elapsed photo graphy too. Also you can expand battery capacity to 1700mAh which I happend to have it. It has enough room to accomodate the fat battery.
Yes it has fish eye effect in all resolution 720 or 1080. It is because the helmet cams uses wide angle lenses, I prefer wide angle lens because it can capture wide area. As a helmet cam, you can really tell what you are capturing so I rather have wider angle to capture more areas.
The mount options in the package are also well made and useful.
It does not come with CD with editing software. The recommenation is use VLC which is OK with me. VLC works fine
Only a down side is the size. The size is little big as helmet cam but acceptable considering all the advantages it comes with.
It also do not have image stablization so certan footage can give you motion sickness but again I have not seem a helmet cam with image stablization. so this is something you would live with.
So I would say it is best in its class, if size is little smaller and has image it would have been perfect. --- I know I am asking too much
I definitly recommend this product
I decided on the Drift HD170 because it has a view screen. The problem with GoPro is you can't tell if the camera is on or if it is lined up to get the right shot. With the Drift camera, you can preview your video clip on the screen. The Drift also has a remote, so you can turn the camera on and off without taking your helmet off. This not only is convenient but really cuts down on the editing because clips are shorter and a lot less to work through.
The price of the Drift HD170 was similar to the GoPro HD helmet cam and it offers so many extra features and video quality is awesome. Now all my buddies want a Drift HD170. Amazon has a great price and shipping but one of my friends found the camera plus all the accessories on mypov360.com. I wish I'd known about that because it would be great to have all the accessories, and Amazon doesn't carry them.
I have shot some great video on my dirt bike already and can't can't wait for snow to shoot some vids in the terrain park, pipe, and freeride.

It's rather bulky, but it's very durable.
It's better mounted on large vehicles than use on your person.
Once your warranty is over, and something happens to it, you have to throw it away. The company states it is not worth fixing.Read more
