POV Powerhouse - Intuitive, long-lasting & powerful
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 60 fps, 12 MP stills and unprecedented low-light performance. The result is extraordinarily smooth, rich video in any condition.
Intuitive, easy to use & full of features
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.
Innovative recording modes
Ever heard of the clone mode? This feature allows you to simultaneously record across multiple cameras (up to 5) sharing the same Wi-Fi network. Using this mode, a 'Master-Camera' sends every change in recording or setting to its 'Slave-Cameras', which makes controlling a lot easier and more comfortable. Furthermore, the so-called 'Car DVR mode' connects the Ghost-S to your vehicle or motorcycle and starts recording automatically when your engine starts or stops. Herewith the camera is also perfect for monitoring and insurance purposes. The time intervals at which each video is stored can be defined individually. Thus you can determine the length of your recordings yourself, what makes later editing much easier. For those who never want to miss a run, a rail, or a wave, 'video tagging' is the ultimate feature. This mode stores the video temporarily by recording a continuous loop. If tagging is activated, you can bring a section of the video back from the past - with simply pushing a button. The interval can easily be predetermined (up to the last 5 minutes). Once 'tagged', the Ghost-S will store the selected material on your MicroSD card. Result: You are able to save all your personal highlights on the memory card and at the same time free it of an unnecessarily high amount of video material.
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 12 MP photos. The resolution is individually adjustable and can be extended up to 1080p (with a frame rate of up to 60 fps). Tip: Combine photo and video mode and shoot high-resolution images even during movie recording!
No angles, no screws, no stress
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 inch 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 possibilities
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 9 feet (3 m) 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 196 ft (60 m) down under the sea level!

I'm disappointed that the camera does not come with a charger. You get a USB cable that you have to connect to your computer which charges very slowly and sometimes not fully or you have to get your own wall adapter charger.
**Get a fast memory card, not a cheap one**
Originally I had some trouble getting this camera to operate without giving me errors, freezing, etc. It ended up that my micro SD card was not fast enough to handle the 1080p video being written to it. I switched to a SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB micro SD card (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DM1BDPK/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_17) and have had no problems since. Originally I had the SanDisk Ultra micro SD card which was too slow.
Drift's customer service was unable to help me find the correct memory card. They simply told me not to use the SanDisk Ultra line because they're too slow. They recommended using cards from the brands PNY and Samsung. I bought a card from each of those companies and did not have success with them either. It was very frustrating to me that they could not simply recommend specific cards that they knew would work.
I ended up ordering 2 of these cameras from Amazon and both came loose in the plastic display box. So they were bouncing around inside which concerned me. I guess they should be able to handle it though, but it just seemed odd especially since there is a place for them to be attached via their mount but neither one was.
When the camera functions as expected, which is most of the time, it's a great improvement over the Ghost.
The problem is that the camera is finicky.
Sometimes it can decide to just not turn off no matter what combinations of buttons you press. The only way out of that is to let it run out of battery or to disconnect the battery so you run the risk of losing your movie.
The worst part is when it starts failing to record, even after it successfully starts recording, and you get NO INDICATION that it has decided to stop recording.
The latest failures are when it 'suddenly decides' that the card that it is using is too slow.. Well, the camera has been happy with that same card for many many hours and it also happens to be one of the highest speed rated cards there is. When the camera just stops recording because it doesn't like the card, YOU GET NO NOTICEABLE INDICATION THAT IT DECIDED TO QUIT RECORDING. Maybe it does beep or something, but if it does, you can't hear it over the road noise (this is an action camera after all).
Today I lost a 'never will happen again' unexpected event because the camera had decided to just stop recording because it didn't like the card, midstream.. This was not the first time that this kind of ABORT has happened, it has happened numerous times in the past, but it is the first time that it's happened when there was some event going on that I particularly would have liked to have had a video record of it.
I think the Go Pros look goofy, presenting a full flat camera like face to the wind, but if it reliably records.. I'll be looking for one of those in the future..
